My hopes were not high. To be honest if it hadn't been for work I really wouldn't have gone. And what was I expecting? Well it's a sequel for a start off and a part 5 at that OMG! There would be action scenes edited together so fast they made no sence (Quantum of Solace is a perfect example), the the music would be so loud and the camera work so jerky and horrible I'd get a headache, there would be murky dull photography.... oh there's so much wrong with this genre of films today. But F5 proved me wrong! The action scenes, so well put together with clarity and skill, had me on the edge of my seat throughout (would the makes of the next Bond please take note), the photography was colourful and bright, the locations interesting and ideal, the story(as mad as a bag of cats) was great fun. The performances were so much fun... Had I been 5 (instead of 40 something)it would have been the best film I'd ever seen. Best of all it wasn't in the dreaded 3D!!!!! Unlike most of the films I've seen so far this year I actually really enjoyed myself with F5 (Pirates of the Caribbean sent me to sleep).
