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
Dennis McCarthy, the man behind building the vehicles used in the franchise, says that they used "a whole fleet of BMW M5s" in order to complete one sequence. McCarthy also said "We pretty much destroyed every single one later on, in other scenes"; cars that appear on-screen in close-ups or action shots are not BMW E60 M5s. See more »

The movie is faster than ever, it's a popcorn flick just like the previous one but that doesn't stop it from being great and being a lot of fun.
The movie gets pretty much straight to the point with ironing out the plot which was teased at the end of Fast Five. The team from Fast Five face there biggest challenge yet and Domonic (Vin Diesel) has to secure what he loves most while trying to look out for his friends and family.
The movie has some great action scenes with humor all the way through it, mainly from Tyrese Gibson, Ludicrous and the odd one liners from Vin Diesel and Sung Kang. Despite very far fetched action which was crazily unrealistic at times it still didn't take away the fun, it just left you feeling, how the hell is that possible? That was my only real gripe with the movie but lets not forget, if these movies didn't have that sort of action that makes your jaw hit the floor in disbelief they'd be no where near as fun of enjoyable. I also was kind of let down by the bad guy in this film, maybe it's because I watched Star Trek Into Darkness and Benedict Cumberland was amazing as the villain, but really Luke Evan's was quite disappointing.
Vin Diesel is as awesome as ever, mainly due to him pulling off the super-human activities like they were nothing. Paul Walker didn't really do much for me though but the rest of the character really do put a great shift in. So really the cast were good for what they were in it for.
Overall I'd definitely go see this movie if you enjoyed any of the previous ones because this is on par with Fast Five, which for me was probably the best one. Enjoy this movie for what it is and don't go into the theater expecting to see Oscar worthy performances.
I'll give it an 8. It's great fun and really enjoyable, it will leave you wanting to ride your car through the streets as fast as you can.
