All roads lead to this
Dom (Vin Diesel) and his team join forces with Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) to take down a group of mercenaries. Why? Because one of them is Letty (Michelle Rodriguez)! So in order to save Letty and for pardons all around Dom, Brain (Paul Walker), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Taj (Ludacris), Han (Sung Kang) and Gisele (Gal Gadot) do everything they can to stop Shaw (Luke Evans) the leader of the group of skilled mercenaries.
Normally in a franchise the first film is always the best, however in this case they just keep getting better in my opinion. Ok people are saying there hardly any racing etc, but to be honest the first film was more about Brian infiltrating and arresting Dom for his crimes, the racing was a side thing, that being said there has always been an aspect of racing in all these films so I don’t see it being a problem.
Is the film award winning? No. Is the film filled with award winning performances? Nope. Is the film entertaining? HELL YES. This is a film where you sit back and enjoy the ride (pun intended). I know people who complain about the film not being realistic, of course it’s not! It’s a movie, a popcorn movie at that.
The story is pretty decent and the action is awesome, in was in the cinema and there was people cheering and whooping at certain parts, and I saw the film a few times and each time there was the same reaction (out loud).
Majority of the film is filmed in London so as a thank you they released it over her first before its general release which was a nice gesture.
Be sure to stay after the short warning before the credits for a bonus scene. And get ready for Fast and furious 7 which is already causing a lot of hype.
