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

If the viewer watches the favela chase with Brian and Mia (Dom's Sister), right before the two jump off the ledge from the roof, if the viewer focuses on the person with the camera, it is revealed that the camera person is actually a member of the film crew. 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.

Fast Five: The Big Climax Of The Franchise
26 August 2013 | by CMTiagoSee all my reviews

Without a shadow of a doubt, The Fast And Furious Franchise reaches it's peak in this installment with breathtaking action and a sense of friendship and brotherhood shared by the lead characters. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker return and are joined by newcomer Dwayne Johnsson for the 5th Fast and Furious Movie, entitled ''Fast Five''. There's not much to say about this, the action movie of the year, except it's fantastic shots of Brazil, the heist plot that brings even more excitem«ent to the table and overall the continuation of the story of these characters we have come to love and support, as their bond streghtens over time.

In Conclusion, if you love the franchise then you can't miss it

9/10
