Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
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

After the character credits following the film, we're shown Han's final race from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006). However, we start seeing angles of it from inside a car, where a gloved hand is adjusting switches and preparing to move. As in _Tokyo Drift_, a Mercedes slams into Han's car, but it doesn't kill him outright. The driver of the Mercedes, an unnamed character played by Jason Statham, emerges from his car; he then pulls the 'cross necklace' (seen earlier in the film and also the one from Fast Five and Four) from his pocket and throws it into the fuel spill/the direction of Han's car. Han's car then explodes from the fuel leak and subsequent engine fire. Jason Statham's character then makes a call, saying, "Dominic Toretto. You don't know me. You're about to." 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.
