Now when a long running series like The Fast And The Furious get sequels it is always a challenge to go out and try impress movie goers.
However the series always tops itself with the recent sequels and Fast Five proof that's anything is possible with the right minds.
The plot this time take place after Fast and Furious 4 left all with Brian O'Conner played by Paul Walker, Dominic Teretto Played by Vin Diesel, Mia Toretto played by Jordana Brewster head for Brazil to escape the law after a job with Vince Played by Matt Schulze went wrong.
Which leads to them being hunted by Luke Hobbs Played by Dwayne Johnson who along with Elena Played by Elsa Pataky begin to hunt them down.
Also returning are Roman Played by Tyrese Gibson, Tej Played by Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Han Played by Sung Kang, Gisele played by Gal Gadot.
Reyes Played by Joaquim de Almeida who serves as the Film Main Antagonist.
Story wise the plot is very good because it features the return of many of the characters from the series which is very good and moves the series along. Plus the film requires you to pay attention or you'll miss something. Plus you see the characters grow in this film from the last films.
What drives the film like the other films is that the stunts from start to finish that defines The Laws of Physic and why I love this series because the cast and crew are always driven to push the limits and hold nothing back, Fast Five is the example of it.
There is just a lot for this film that I recommend seeing for yourself where you'll be amazed and how you can do a sequel with the right minds.
With awesome stunts, great action and plot you'll be glad you watch this film.
I give Fast Five an 8 out of 10
