Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson reunite for this sixth instalment in the 'Fast and Furious' action thriller franchise, directed by Justin Lin. After their lucrative Rio heist, and unable to return home, Dom (Diesel) and the rest of his compatriots are forced to kill time lying low in different locations around the world. When DSS agent Hobbs (Johnson) offers Dom and his crew full pardons in return for taking down Owen Shaw (Luke Evans)'s gang of mercenary drivers, the offer seems too good to pass. But as the rivals head for a showdown on the streets of London, Dom learns that Shaw's second in command is none other than his presumed dead former lover, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).

This sixth instalment waves the usual traits found in this franchise right in your face. Babes in skimpy attire almost pleasuring themselves on top of muscle cars before a street race? Check. Vin Diesel grumbling his way through dialogue? Definitely. "Family" being the most commonly used word in the third screenplay? Probably. And enough delirious action set pieces that forces you to question every physic known to man? Absolutely. Pushing aside CGI Dom launching himself through the air to catch Letty across a bridge and landing safely on the bonnet of a car, it's just an enjoyable action film that knows exactly what it is. Audiences came for outrageous and memorable set pieces, Lin delivered them. Viewers wanted interactions between their favourite character, Lin granted them to us.
This is the pivotal instalment that solidified the direction of the franchise, so it made perfect sense not to change up the overall tone. That being said, some captivating substance in between the blistering action would've been appreciated. It's just heavy-handed storytelling, spelling out the plot with magnetic letters one may find on their fridge door, and some forced humorous moments for Gibson's character. Not nearly as tantalising as a tank decimating oncoming traffic or cinema's longest runway in existence (nearly fifteen minutes of full throttle acceleration). Consequently, this does produce several lulling moments, perhaps forcing you to look at your watch. The cast are all enjoying themselves and rarely push their talent, although Evans was probably the first memorable antagonist in the entire series, but they didn't need to in all honesty.
The high-octane gear changing speaks for itself. There's enough diesel in this sequel to produce a rip-roaring fun action blockbuster, if you can get passed the inconsistent pacing in its elongated runtime. Oh, and Rita Ora...
Everything you would expect is here. Fast cars, outlandish action and the good old team. It doesn't take long for the team to get back together and once they do the action comes thick and fast.
One thing that this sixth film does well is to make it feel dangerous. None of the characters feel safe, there is an underlying feeling that some may not make it to the end of this story. It gives it an edge the previous films lacked. It doesn't have the sunny, fun disposition of the fifth film. It is darker and slightly grittier.
The finale really does take things to the limit and it is hard to imagine how future instalments are going to top it. Non-stop and full of some amazing visual moments, your heart will be in your mouth for most of the time. Throw in a car chase involving a rampaging tank and some souped up cars that have the ability to flip other cars around like pancakes and you have a film that surprises and engages at every turn. The FF franchise may not boast the biggest brains in Hollywood but you can never deny the fun they bring. Another purely entertaining film with a crew you love to hang out with.
Stick around for a mid-credits surprise for a hint of what's to come. More proof that there is more up this one's sleeve.
after a military convoy is attacked and taken down in 'Moscow'
'agent 'Hobbs' becomes involved.
the attack had been the work of a well organised outfit.
'Hobbs' needs the skills of 'Dom' and his old crew to help him track
down and close down the outfit headed by 'Shaw' who if he gets his
hands on all the military items targeted he would pose a threat to
millions of innocents.
the crew agree to do the job if 'Hobbs' can guarantee a pardon for
'Dom' soon becomes concerned when discovering a member of his old
crew 'Letti' now runs with 'Shaw' now.
'Hobbs' and 'Dom' need to work out where 'Shaw's' next heist will be
.....an explosive action-packed thrill trip with the usual high-speed
car chases on board...again...fast cars, fast fists along with the
usual measure of humour.
if you love what's gone before......you'll love number '6'
an adrenaline rush......enjoy
