Overall Rating:
Opens: May 24, 2013
Running time: 130 minutes
Genre: Action

The film brings back Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his team of professional criminals. After the destruction of a Russian military convoy caused by Owen Shaw and his crew, agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) shows Toretto proof that former girlfriend, Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) is still alive and working for Shaw. Toretto and his crew have no choice but to pursue Letty and stop Shaw. The reward? Totally amnesty of their past crimes and a ticket back to the United States.

In Fast Six the whole team is united and they give chase to Shaw and his crew of criminals. We see the return of Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris) and Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang) amongst others.

Once the crew finds Letty she shoots Dominic. Despite being his former girlfriend it appears that Letty does not remember her old fling. Toretto’s crew later finds out that Letty has amnesia after the explosion that was thought to have killed her in the fourth installment of the series, Fast & Furious.

Fast & Furious 6Unlike past Fast and Furious films, Fast & Furious Six is more of a crime movie. There are still plenty of car chases but this time we get to see bigger and badder military toys provided by Hobbs and his team of investigators. Despite a significantly dull script there are plenty of death defying stunts, breath taking camera work and physics defying jumps to make up for it.

If you are a fan of the Fast and the Furious film series or are up for an entertaining couple of hours, Fast and Furious 6 is the right film for you.
