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

When Letty and Riley are fighting over the gun on the plane, several rounds are fired during the struggle and each time the slide can be seen returning forward on the gun. However, when Riley wins the gun and aims it, the slide is locked in the back position. See more »
The crew we're after, they hit like thunder and disappear like smoke. You go in alone, you won't ever touch them. I've been chasing these guys across four continents and twelve countries and believe me the last place I want to be is in front of your door step selling girl scout cookies. I need your help Dom. I need your team.

I still can't believe I am giving a 9.0 to a film that is #6 in a brainless action franchise!
I am not aware of any other franchise (except maybe, strangely enough, f13) where #6 is the best of the series. Normally the energy, creativity are gone by then.
Not this time.
I simply cannot believe how much I enjoyed every single minute of this film!
There was even a decent plot!! (hey, for a film that is basically made up of fast cars, explosions and fight scenes, that says a lot!)
However, I won't go into the plot - because there are some REAL twists in it, and it is better to go in with a fresh mind.
It does help if you have seen the prior 5, but no sweat if you haven't.
What really pleasantly surprised me was how funny this film was!! I would say about 1/2 the film was gut splitting comedy. It is rare that most jokes work in a film. Usually some fall flat. Not in this one! every single joke worked. I laughed so hard that I know I missed some!
This is really meant to be seen on the big screen with a large crowd. I can't remember the last time so many people laughed, went 'WHOA!" and "yeah" even clapping during a film!
The film starts off with a bang and ends with a post-ending that will make you grin from ear to ear.
The film deals with criminals who are obsessed with fast cars and like to create mayhem with their cars.
Wall to wall action, comedy with just the right amount of drama and love interest.
This could be "the" measurement for the brainless-feel-good-summer- action film.
The only reason I am not giving this a 10.0 is because 1) it was a little long.. the final scene was almost a movie in itself (but it was a hoot!), and 2) in general I don't think any film is perfect. In some scenes (thankfully only a few) there were too many close ups that made it a little hard to follow the action. But I am really nitpicking here, folks.
If you like action, fast cars, explosions, comedy....
run, don't walk to see F&F 6.
