The Fast and Furious series have been
providing entertainment to rev head car lovers for well over a decade
series has proved resoundingly resilient despite any real originality
Speeding cars, babes and greased up morons has proved to be the winning
for this series. With the original being a road bound rip off of Point Break (1991), the other films have
skipped continents and cast in an effort to fool viewers they aren’t
the same movie, six times. With the arrival of Fast &
Furious 6 even the series most avid fans couldn’t defend the
fact that this cash cow is milked and drying up quicker than a snowball
hell. The films have always been mind numbing entertainment, but this
quite simply, a confused mess and completely ridiculous. Is it
though? Is it fun? Unfortunately, the answer is yes.
story for Fast 6 needs little introduction, as
it’s not really that important is it? No one watches these films and
their mate how amazing the character development was. Or how Paul
Walker has finally
learned to wipe that look of his face like he’s struggling to
painting. What the viewers want is the original cast and they want
cars. Well, in Fast 6 you’ve got both.
Yes, it's that kind of crowd-pleaser this film. We’ve got an ageing Vin
and stupid as ever Paul Walker back to ignite the screen with their
charged dude chemistry. This time Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants the
help him track down a wanted criminal Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). He offers
boys a clean slate for their help and cooperation with the case. This is when all the cast offs and crappy rappers come
of the woodwork to fill out the cast list.
Rodriguez is also back to
put pedal to the metal once more. What’s that you say? She died in the
film? Well she’s back from the dead to pout her way through another
pumped paycheck and that’s probably a good thing. She remains the only
member with any kind of magnetism or focus holding ability. So the gang
and this time they seem to do a lot more shooting and punching in an
show how integral they all are, all the while proving that this series
in the ether of it’s stupid legacy. The action is amped up and well
shot in Fast 6. The film doesn’t let the
audience rest for long before throwing more action or mucho madness at
This is a smart choice and will please the long-term fans. There must
be such a
thing out the right? Long-term Fast and
Furious fans, what a scary thought. Out of all the previous films
most similar in tone to Fast Five, so
if you enjoyed that masterpiece you should probably get gold class
this car crash right away.
Fast & Furious
6 is a fun and stupidly entertaining action movie. It is however
but an amalgamation of used parts from the previous films. Everyone
to expect with these film and the most current entry is no exception.
money to watch this if you must, but do it in the awareness that it’s
going to kill the last few brain cells you have if you actually call
Fast and Furious fan.
