Fast Five is officially my godfather pic of all action movies! If you’re a fan of The Fast and The Furious films – or kickass movies in general – you must read on – otherwise don’t waste your time.
Director Justin Lin really upped the ante with bigger and badder muscles, gorgeous Brazilian chicks in tiny bikinis, and super hot sexy cars. But that’s not all, the testosterone level jumps up a few levels when The Rock joins the rest of the cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Tego Calderone, Don Omar, Jordana Brewster, and Joaquim de Almeida, just to name a few. With a heavy cast like that, you have to use them properly including top-notch car chasing, crazy explosions, heavy gun-blazing scenes, and big heavy muscle fights that make you want to punch the guy sitting next to you. And for the cherry on top… it’s set on the sexiest samba-grinding place on earth, Rio baby. Justin Lin didn’t just bring it – he brang it!
The latest saga infuses elements from previous films and ties them together like a surprising little Christmas present. Even if you haven’t seen the previous four films, this is the one that will make you want to watch the rest.
Fast Five is exceptionally loud and superbly obnoxious, and if it doesn’t make you want to immediately have crazy samba-shaking sex while racing a car – then you have no soul. I advise every girl to shave their legs and take their man to see this film – in IMAX – for a guaranteed adrenaline-rushing climax!
P.S. – oh and don’t forget to stay through the credits – for some extra fun stuff!
