Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Dominic and his crew thought they'd left the criminal mercenary life behind. They'd defeated international terrorist Owen Shaw and went their separate ways. But now, Shaw's brother, Deckard Shaw, is out killing the crew one by one for revenge. Worse, a Somalian terrorist called Jakarde and a shady government official called "Mr. Nobody" are both competing to steal a computer terrorism program called "God's Eye," that can turn any technological device into a weapon. Torretto must reconvene with his team to stop Shaw and retrieve the God's Eye program while caught in a power struggle between the terrorist and the United States government.Written by
Upon entering Azerbaijan, a transporter was being passed which began firing multiple mini-guns. The sound from this weapon does not make the rat-tat-tat of a machine gun but rather a "bzzzzzzt" sound from firing up to 6,000 rounds each, per minute. See more »
The IMAX intro for the film features the statement "Can't Outrun the Truth", a spinning tire wheel, and the sound of racing cars and police sirens. See more »
The 140-minute extended version of the film has the following additions:
No doubt the biggest addition is the longer opening sequence where Deckard narrates their shared past as children including him punished by their father for what Owen would steal. He also knew that Owen would end up in the current predicament despite being a gangster, smarter, better and being trained by him. It then continues to the theatrical-version's opening of laying the machine gun on Owen's chest before he leaves the hospital.
A different line when Deckard responds to Hobbs why he's in his office: "I don't care for your computer. I'm here for the team that crippled my brother."
The graveyard chase is slightly longer.
The number of punches, kicks and head butts between Letty and Kara is almost doubled.
The shootout at the warehouse is longer, especially it has Mr. Nobody killing a three more of Jakande's mercenaries.
I've didn't see the first series of Fast & Furious, but I said I should give a try to see this movie. The movie is great for an usual action movie. There are lots of visual effects, great actors (Jason Statham, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodrigues, Vin Diesel and others), great cars, great ammunition. But what bothered me was that there are lots of destruction. Everywhere you see only destruction... Cars, houses, parking lots, asphalt etc. Maybe for other viewers this is not bothering, for me it was too much.
I recommend viewing this movie especially for the series fans, actor fans and usual action movie fans.
