When the team steal the four Dodge Charger police cars to do a drag race, the police lights on one of the cars turn on. According to car co-coordinator Dennis McCarthy, Dodge had just released that particular model of the Charger and as a result, some of the cars used were still prototypes. The police lights activating was a malfunction on that particular car and wasn't in the script. After filming, they decided to keep the scene intact because it was thought that that's what Roman (Tyrese Gibson) would have done anyway. See more »

SPOILER: After the credits roll, Agent Fuentes (Eva Mendes) comes in with a file to Hobbs' office. He asks if the file contains news on Dom and says he is not interested when she says it doesn't. She informs him he should be very interested, and asks if he believes in ghosts as she shows him a picture of Letty, alive. See more »
After varying degrees of success with the franchise, My faith that "Fast 5" could deliver on the hype was waning somewhat. However I am pleased to say the series has redeemed itself. Fast 5 pulls out all the stops this time around. It delivers on action, cars, quality acting and a decent storyline. It explores the character personalities showing more humor, fear, vulnerability and determination this time around which gives the movie strength and depth that was missing from previous Fast n Furious movies.
I found myself laughing out loud a few times at the subtle humor, and leaning forward for the action scenes which are truly amazing.
The Story is not predictable and will keep the surprises coming to the end. The Cast has matured and it shows in the quality of acting over previous F'n'F movies.
Good pace throughout the movie
Decent storyline and plot
Good Cast of actors/ actresses
Imaginative and inventive elements throughout
Plenty of "Wow" moments
Would be nice to have more screen time for the cars
a couple of cheesy moments ( but this adds to the humor of the film)
Overall: Highly recommended film, Just be sure to stay until the end of the credits!
