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.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
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
Dwayne Johnson makes at least two direct references to his wrestling past. During one conversation he says "guaran-damn-tee," which was on of his mainstays in cutting promos as The Rock. He also states he wants to come down on Shaw like the Walls of Jericho. Biblical references aside, Walls of Jericho is a signature finishing move of fellow wrestler and musician Chris Jericho.

The longest paved runway in Spain (where the scene takes place) is at Madrid's Torrejon airport, at ~4,800 meters, or about three miles. The heroes chase the villains down the runway (apparently unaware of where they are) for about a minute before the plane appears, thus eating up at least one third of the runway's length. The plane, an Antonov AN-124, plans to do a touch-and-go - a landing and immediate take off, once the villains are aboard. While this is certainly possible in the last two miles of runway, such a maneuver should take approximately one minute. Any longer at over 100 MPH, and there wouldn't be any more runway to fly over. The length of the scene is far beyond anything even remotely possible under the circumstances. See more »
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 »
Movie was up to the mark. There were lot of hilarious moments. Rock was excellent in the movie. All the characters gel up really well. Letty is back :D. The movie was fast and furious. The scene with the airplane in the climax is one of the highlights of the movie. I will give this a 10/10 rating right away. Don't miss it. go and watch it right away. I am very eager for the next installment now. the film is filled with all the high-octane speed chases and close combat scenes we've come to expect from the franchise. I think this is one of the best film in the franchise. As is the trend nowadays, the closing credits provide a teaser of what's to come. In a Tokyo-set interlude we are introduced to yet another popular action star who will likely join the fast and furious crew for joyride number seven. Keep those seat belts fastened. Fast & Furious 6 is back to wheel power.
