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.

Trivia

Because of the negative reaction from car enthusiasts regarding the use of CGI backgrounds and locations, Justin Lin insisted "Fast Five" has a limited use of it, to focus more on practical effects. See more »

Goofs

Dom and Brian were dragging the vault out of the Police Station behind their cars, on their first turn to right, the vault rolled over three or four times hence causing the attached strings to entangle. However in the next scene the strings were not entangled but straightly connected to the cars. The same mistake was made repeatedly during the pursuit. See more »

Alternate Versions

The extended cut is a minute longer with slight more graphic violence with the following additions:
  • After Hobbs' team shootout with Zizi's gang, he asks whether all is clear while they are aiming guns at Neves.
  • Tej admits that the safe they're going after is the hardest to crack and they need another duplicate safe to practice.
  • The crew talks about breaking into the safe and how to transport the money. Brian founds out that there's an adjoining wall to the toilet room. Roman and Han, tasked to transport the money says of a possible solution : a ventilation shaft that leads straight into the garage so they can transport the money from the shaft into the transport cars.
  • Hobbs' and Dominic's brawl is slightly longer: Hobbs lands a cracking elbow check on Dom's back and Dom punches Hobbs in the ribs. Then another hard headbutt and a punch at Hobbs' face. When Hobbs hit back, there's another punch at Dom before Hobbs spins around for another lunge. Finally, when Hobbs is down on the floor, there's another punch from Dom.
  • When rescuing Hobbs' team who are being ambushed by Reyes's men, Dominic fires two more shots at Reyes's men while Hobb's is still lying on the ground
  • Instead of a black screen, the start of the end credits has a warning on stunts shouldn't be imitated at home.

Back together for round Five
3 April 2015 | by TerryfanSee all my reviews

Now when a long running series like The Fast And The Furious get sequels it is always a challenge to go out and try impress movie goers.

However the series always tops itself with the recent sequels and Fast Five proof that's anything is possible with the right minds.

The plot this time take place after Fast and Furious 4 left all with Brian O'Conner played by Paul Walker, Dominic Teretto Played by Vin Diesel, Mia Toretto played by Jordana Brewster head for Brazil to escape the law after a job with Vince Played by Matt Schulze went wrong.

Which leads to them being hunted by Luke Hobbs Played by Dwayne Johnson who along with Elena Played by Elsa Pataky begin to hunt them down.

Also returning are Roman Played by Tyrese Gibson, Tej Played by Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Han Played by Sung Kang, Gisele played by Gal Gadot.

Reyes Played by Joaquim de Almeida who serves as the Film Main Antagonist.

Story wise the plot is very good because it features the return of many of the characters from the series which is very good and moves the series along. Plus the film requires you to pay attention or you'll miss something. Plus you see the characters grow in this film from the last films.

What drives the film like the other films is that the stunts from start to finish that defines The Laws of Physic and why I love this series because the cast and crew are always driven to push the limits and hold nothing back, Fast Five is the example of it.

There is just a lot for this film that I recommend seeing for yourself where you'll be amazed and how you can do a sequel with the right minds.

With awesome stunts, great action and plot you'll be glad you watch this film.

I give Fast Five an 8 out of 10
