Start your engines people!! Fast and Furious 6 is hitting theaters this Friday, May 24th 2013. Do we even need further introductions to the Fast and Furious franchise? Of course not! Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez will continue their adventure in the world of crime, hot cars and insane speed limits. Fast 6 is directed by Justin Lin. Check out the movie review for Fast 6 below:
“Fast and Furious 6: Aerodynamically Delirious and Insanely Cool
Vin Diesel could be his own oversize action toy — slablike, solid and smooth, stripped of all cranial, facial or underarm hair — or the mammoth statue of a god erected by primitive tribes. Dwayne Johnson is that deity but even more imposing, and a marvel when he springs into liquid motion. Called the Samoan Thor, he is the irresistible force to Diesel’s immovable object; and when they fight a gang of enemies, or each other, the heavens seem ready to explode with their practiced wrath.
Johnson hitched a ride on the Fast & Furious franchise two years ago, in Fast Five, as DEA Officer Luke Hobbs, determined to bring to justice Diesel’s multiracial, girls-allowed gang of carnappers. This time he has promised them all full pardons if they bring down a cyberterrorist named Shaw (Luke Evans), who has acquired a microchip that will shut down all U.S. military computers for 24 hours. Big deal, you say — the software that should pay veterans’ benefits has been inoperable for years. Still, Dominic Toretto (Diesel) agrees to the deal. His mates aren’t so sure. “So,” says Han Seoul-oh (Sung Kang), “now we work for the Hulk?” No, the Rock.
Are Toretto and Hobbs human? Not really, by the standards of traditional movies, which demand behavioral nuance and emotional compromise and men fretting. Are the guys superhuman? Sure; the F&F films are big-screen comic books without the Marvel mythology. But above all, Dom and Hobs are posthuman. Fast Five heralded the New Hollywood’s exaltation of sensational action over subtle character. Fast and Furious 6 revs everything up, purifies and improves it. The fourth F&F movie to be directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan, Furious 6 is even cooler and more aerodynamically delirious than its predecessor, if such a thing is even theoretically possible.
Five movies after The Fast and the Furious, the 2001 original (which was a loose remake of a 1955 film produced by Roger Corman), what’s left to do with cars? Well, this, from Fast Five: Dom drove a ’66 Corvette Grand Sport sideways out of a speeding freight car to race the train toward an imminent cliff. Then Dom’s blond buddy Brian (Paul Walker) leaped off the train and into the car milliseconds before it plummeted off the cliff and into a river far below. The bonding of the two autoholics was impressive, but not nearly so much as the teamwork of the Fast Five stunt team. In a movie era when dramatic ingenuity is close to evaporating, the complex, split-second choreography of men and cars is an expression of medium-to-high film art.”
