Ileana’s Movie Review: Fast Five

Universal Pictures

Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Dwayne Johnson

Summary: The fifth installment of the Fast and Furious series picks up immediately where the fourth one ends. Dominic (Diesel) has escaped prison with the help of Brian (Walker) and Mia (Brewster) and they are now on the run. The crew eventually ends up in Rio De Janeiro where they decide to do a job for some quick cash, but are double-crossed. Now they have to deal with a vengeful crime lord as well as a determined federal agent named Hobbs (Johnson).
I will freely admit to enjoying this movie. Sure there are plenty of “yeah right” moments, but it all seems to be in good fun. I think thereason why it works is because it’s more of a heist movie than a  racing movie. Imagine if Ocean’s Eleven was cast like a hip-hop music video. It also helps that they’ve brought back as many supporting cast members as possible from the previous films. All in all, it was a really fun ride.
Trivia: Although “Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” was released third in the series, chronologically it takes place after the other four.
Rated: PG-13 – For violence, action, sexuality, and some language.
Grade: B
