Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

Wow…

I love car racing games with Need for Speed: Most Wanted & Hot Pursuit as my favourites as both games give me quite the adrenaline rush. Anyways that’s me just digressing seeing as the Fast & Furious movies give me the same rush and the sixth installment did not fail. It’s a Fast & Furious 6 review.

FF6
FF6

Directed by Justin Lin, written by Chris Morgan & Gary Scott Thompson, Fast 6, stars Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner, Dwayne Johnson as Hobbs, Jordana Brewster as Mia, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty, Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Sung Kang as Han, Gal Gadot as Gisele, Ludacris as Tej & Luke Evans as Shaw.

Fast 6 is set after Dominic’s crew successful heist in Brazil in Fast 5, with the rest of the team scattered around the globe enjoying the bounty but not being able to go back home to the USA. Hobbs is tracking a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries and enlists the help of Dom and his crew to help take down the team with a full pardon as payment.

Fast 6 is utter brilliance and i must say i was happy with every moment when seeing the movie. The script for one was nicely written with a few questions answered as regards to the hidden scene in Fast 5. The action was way above average and enjoyable while the actors gave life to their character especially Tyerese Gibson making the lighter moments lighter and had us in the cinemas having a good laugh. There has been much talk about the movie breaking a few laws in physics but we must remember that this is a movie with the imaginations of the writers being spread out. The driving for one was awesome and the adrenaline rush was worth it. Fast 6 is one of the better movies of 2013.

 

Rating: 7.8/10

Cinema Worthiness: Movie was worth seeing and every second was enjoyable.
