Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). 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? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again. Written by
The Dodge Daytona that Vin Diesel is driving was made custom. The actual car used in production was rebuilt by McCarthy and his team from the old $5,000 piece of junk that they first acquired. See more »

It's so rare nowadays that sequels improve and franchises get better, well Fast & Furious shows us it's truth. This sixth addition lives up to it's speedy natured title yet again with furious action sequences that will excite audiences from the epic scale convoy heist to the knockout plane finale, it's all so over the top and that's exactly what you want. This addition spans the globe from the streets of London, the busy roads of Tenerife and back and forth from the USA. Justin Lin is the ultimate director for this franchise, he keeps every aspect sharp from the beautiful camera-work, the expertly crafted stunts to the fantastic character chemistry. The best thing about six is that it goes in a new direction, heading towards a more action drama, as the main focus is family, and the crew are closer than ever, and whenever a character is in peril you feel for them and you begin to hope everything turns out alright. The cast deliver fine performances, all of which are the best in the franchise, there's genuine chemistry and strong interaction, and when Mia is kidnapped you will gasp. Owen Shaw, played by Luke Evans, is hands down the best bad guy in the franchise, he's menacing, motivated and very sly and he aims at the protagonists weak spots, pushing their buttons resulting in fantastic face/offs. Gina Carano is back and better than ever, I last saw her in Haywire and she is still electrifying, super sexy and a spectacular fighter, the cat fights between her and Rodriguez are enough to stand up to the ground breaking force of the Rock and Vin Diesel. The story is tightly packed, the camera-work follows the pulse racing action and there are tonnes of shocks and twists, this is a top notch addition. Plus, the credits feature an epic-beyond-words cliffhanger that will leave you in awe, and ready for part seven.
