'Fast & Furious 6'
(Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, et al / PG-13 / 130 mins)
Overview: Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) summons Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew to London in order to take on a team of mercenary drivers who have caused havoc across a dozen countries in this pedal-to-the-metal installment of the rubber-burning action franchise.
Verdict: OK, we all must admit that fast and the furious 1 was a solid movie and even 2 was awesome, but when tokyo drift came out the cast was completely swiped and fast and furious really wasn't going in a good direction. I liked fast and furious 4, but still didn't really LOVE the franchise. When I saw fast five I was completely blown away at how much I loved it and can watch it over and over again. I knew the franchise was going in a great new direction with additions like the rock and having the whole team together really makes this movie work. And Dom ... you NEED Dom!
FAST AND FURIOUS 6 keeps the franchise going in a great direction. I'd say 5 raised the bar further than I'd ever imagined it'd be and 6 raised it even more. Can't wait for 7 which I heard Diesel wants to make a new trilogy (7 8 and 9) which I think we can all say we're on board for after seeing the scene after the credits.
MUST SEE MOVIE to get your summer started right. Fun, excited, great story, and character development.
