Storyline

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.

The best Fast movie until now...
16 November 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

"Fast Five" is the best "The Fast and the Furious" movie of all that have released until now. And that's it because in this movie for one more time we have the same cast with some additions and some removes but the plot and the effects of this movie is really amazing.

I liked this movie very much because of the plot and I am referring to storyline of the movie and how this story connects all the previous movies and how this movie will continue to the next movies that will come out.

We have many good interpretations once again and I think that all the gang of Dominic Toretto made a really good interpretations. I also liked very much the interpretation of Dwayne Johnson who plays as Luke Hobbs a federal agent and Elsa Pataky who plays as Elena Neves a police officer.
