Storyline

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 ahmetkozan

Trivia

Allegedly, more than 100 cars were crashed, wrecked, or otherwise destroyed in the process of filming. See more »

Goofs

The green Range Rover Vogue seen throughout the film displays a '60' registration plate, therefore is supposedly a late 2010 or early 2011 model, however the car in the film is actually the earlier Range Rover Vogue 2002 to 2009 model, with different front and side vents. See more »

Quotes

Letty Ortiz: I may not remember anything, but I know one thing about myself. Nobody makes me do anything I don't want to.

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

The Extended version runs ~1min longer (13 extended scenes, 9 scenes with alternate material, 2 extended scenes with alternate material):
  • When Riley and Gisele approach the car manufacturer (Thure Lindhardt), there's a rant by him: "Who sent you? Oh come on, ladies! Two hot girls like you don't wander into this neighborhood unless I've called the escort service. And I haven't, yet, today."
  • At the end of the subway station fight between Letty and Riley, Letty strangles Riley with the handcuffs and pushes her back against the wall. She recognizes the train is about the leave then kicks her in the back of the knee before running off to the train.
  • There's an additional short exchange between Dominic and Han about the new 4-speed Camaro SS before Roman's hook hits the wall.

As if a Tank wasn't enough, they got a Plane too
26 May 2013 | by KrazzyDJSee all my reviews

Fast & Furious over the last few installments has become all about action. And the latest outing takes it a step further. Almost 20% of the movie is comprised of action sequences. And at the expense of action, plot, writing, characters all take a backseat. But no one's complaining. Why ? Because the action makes up for all of it.

Do the above statements sound cliché ??? The movie's plot is full of such silly dialogs so its best ignored in the current context. What works is the action - Lin and his crew bring us some of the most ridiculously outrageous and boldly conceived action sequences. There's an intense chase through London in the initial reels and also a race later on. There's a whole plane take-off-crash sequence towards the end that you've probably got a glimpse of in the trailers. The girls are no slouches either and we see an intense hand-to-hand fight of sorts between Michelle Rodriguez's Letty and Gina Carano's Riley.

But the movie's best sequence is undoubtedly the 10 minute Tank chase across the freeway that involves most of the cast and culminates in a breathtaking "catch" (about which I'd not say any further). The camera cuts like crazy, music is pulsating and that single sequence is probably worth the price of the movie ticket.

Apart from action, Furious 6 doesn't have much going for it. Dialog is standard, at times even silly and predictable, characters are flat, performances are decent. The car chases and night scenes got me so involved, I actually felt a bit strange leaving the theater and coming out into the real world's broad daylight. And the post-credits scene is simply, a treat which makes the next installment in the series worth looking forward to. Suffice it to say that in the end, the movie drifts full circle.

Watch it for the action, and for the action alone. If you expect any sort of character development or family issues like the first installment had, you'll be disappointed. Else, you're in for one hell of a ride.

Score: 7 / 10
