I am going to keep this movie review very short. There are only a few things you need to know about Fast Five.
1. This movie is by-far the best of the series
2. It has some of the best action sequences I have seen in a long time
3. It has “heist movie” elements which are amazing (particularly if you like heist movies)
4. The story is nothing special but the movie is thoroughly entertaining and an absolute must-see
Mindless but mind-blowing entertainment
If you were getting bored of the “Fast” series, do not worry. Although the movie contains many common elements of its predecessors, it also introduces a number of new elements. Introducing heist components works well with the successful series and fans of movies like The Italian Job will enjoy the style of this movie.
The acting leaves a lot to be desired but remains bearable – even pretty good at times. Re-introducing old cast members adds to the experience and nostalgia. The support casts serves as one of the strongest points for the movie.
Although many of the action scenes remain over-the-top, their entertainment value cannot be denied. The stunts and effects in Fast Five are among Hollywood’s best. Few straight-up action movies are worthy of a 5 star rating but Fast Five earns it for its improvement over its predecessors, its heist-movie elements and its ultimate entertainment value.
Oh, and stay after the credits. Trust me. – D. Michaelangelo
Once you’ve seen the movie, come on back and we’ll chat about the ending.
Spoilers from this point on ——————————————————>
I could not believe what happened after the credits!!! Letty is alive??? Although I will miss the series, I was excited for this movie because it was a nice ending/wrap-up. Unfortunately it looks like they will be continue to milk the series (either that or the Letty thing completely throws off the neat ending). I am a fan of tidy endings. What do you think?
