The 25 plus mile long runway....,
This review is from: Fast & Furious 6 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Since Dom and Brian's Rio heist toppled an empire, and left their crew with $100 million, the team have scattered across the globe.
But their inability to return home and living forever on the run have left their lives incomplete.
Hobbs has been tracking an organisation of skilled drivers across the globe, whose mastermind is aided by the love Dom thought was dead, Letty.
The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment.....
This franchise shouldn't work. Parts two and three were utter tripe, and then whoosh! Its a turnaround for a franchise I've never seen before, and Lin has struck gold, because he knows what he audience want, fun, action, and more car chases.
And that's what the film delivers, car chase, fight, people in room sweaty and being serious, Tyrese cracking a joke with Ludicrous, and repeated again for the running time.
The film is bonkers, its absolutely crazy, and I found myself laughing at the absurdity of it all, from Bobby Ewing in Dallas shock return for Letty, to Doms rescue of Letty from the tank, which has to be the stupidest thing I've literally seen on screen.
But I had a cracking time watching it, the cast are great, Diesel and Walker funnily enough are the least interesting of the characters, but the rest are brilliant, and Gibson and Bridges steal the movie from everyone.....who is credited in the cast....
Johnson is beyond muscular and just destroys everything in his path, and just as you think Ling couldn't do anything more bizarre, he brings a tank into the film, and Jason Statham....
I've not been the biggest fan of the franchise, but this was big dumb, stupid fun, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I just hope Universal release a trailer for the next film, without giving the whole thing away....
