Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey... before someone else runs them down first.

In the August '11 issue of Mopar Action, it's revealed,that several of the '70's Chargers in fact were equipped with small block Chevy engines. The "hero car" for close ups, did have a Hemi. Albeit, a Gen 1 392 and not the venerable, widely known and assumed 426 Gen 2 Hemi. See more »

After varying degrees of success with the franchise, My faith that "Fast 5" could deliver on the hype was waning somewhat. However I am pleased to say the series has redeemed itself. Fast 5 pulls out all the stops this time around. It delivers on action, cars, quality acting and a decent storyline. It explores the character personalities showing more humor, fear, vulnerability and determination this time around which gives the movie strength and depth that was missing from previous Fast n Furious movies.
I found myself laughing out loud a few times at the subtle humor, and leaning forward for the action scenes which are truly amazing.
The Story is not predictable and will keep the surprises coming to the end. The Cast has matured and it shows in the quality of acting over previous F'n'F movies.
Good pace throughout the movie
Decent storyline and plot
Good Cast of actors/ actresses
Imaginative and inventive elements throughout
Plenty of "Wow" moments
Would be nice to have more screen time for the cars
a couple of cheesy moments ( but this adds to the humor of the film)
Overall: Highly recommended film, Just be sure to stay until the end of the credits!
