When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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.

Rio's Police squad has never used Dodge Chargers or any of the other models shown in the movie. In fact, by the time the movie was shot, the cars that the Rio de Janeiro Police really used in law enforcement were the Volkswagen Golf (known in Mexico as Volkswagen Pointer), Chevrolet S10, Chevrolet Blazer, Chevrolet Astra Sedan (known as Saturn Astra in U.S.), Renault Logan (known in Europe as Dacia Logan), Renault Mégane and Renault Sandero (known in Europe as Dacia Sandero).

In the ending scene, as Dom parks his Dodge Challenger, the wheel isn't tilted and the tire is covered with sand. In the following scene, the wheel is tilted to the right and it is clean. See more »

SPOILER: After the credits roll, Agent Fuentes (Eva Mendes) comes in with a file to Hobbs' office. He asks if the file contains news on Dom and says he is not interested when she says it doesn't. She informs him he should be very interested, and asks if he believes in ghosts as she shows him a picture of Letty, alive. See more »

So far the best and most entertaining of this series.
This is the film that single-handedly got me to give the rest of the series a shot, for better or worse. It's a nice change of pace from the previous films where it abandons the street race angle (how far could you have taken that anyway?) and goes into the direction of a heist action flick with cars. Dwayne Johnson is a great addition and really adds to the series embracing the goofiness of its premise. So yeah, still the best this franchise had, and that's kind of rare for a franchise on its fifth film. The action for the most part is really handled well and a lot of fun to watch. The cast as an ensemble are very charismatic which no doubt makes it more fun for audiences to see a cast that has so much diversity and it's not done with generic stereotypes but just a bunch of people with a common interest. Overall a very entertaining action flick.
