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
Joe Taslim, who plays one of Shaw's henchmen, was originally given two days to film all his scenes, but worked extra hard and managed to finish them in one. Director Justin Lin, impressed with his work rate, added new scenes for him to work on the second day, one of which was the tank scene where he drives the tank. See more »
When Dom and Shaw talk face to face in the night after the street race between Dom and Letty, Dom offers Shaw a deal: "I walk away when she (Letty) walks away", implying that he and his crew would stop hunting Shaw if Letty quit his team. Yet in the first London meeting between Hobbs and all of Dom's crew, it was clearly stated by Hobbs that the objectives for them were to hunt Shaw and bust his mission and not only bring back Letty to Dom's side. Besides, in the same meeting, Brian and Dom had bargained with Hobbs so that if they hunted and busted Shaw, Hobbs would manage to grant them pardon for their crimes. Did Dom forget about about the agreement he made with Hobbs when he offered a deal to Shaw? Or was he keeping his promise and lying deliberately to Shaw ? See more »
If Ivory's dead, he made a mistake. If you make a mistake, you pay the price.
That's a great eulogy, Shaw. You gonna give the same speech for the rest of us when we go out?

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.
