FAST FIVE MOVIE REVIEW
Fast Five is directed by Justin Lin and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, and Dwayne Johnson. The plot of the movie is Dominic Toretto and his crew of street racers plan a massive heist to buy their freedom while in the sights of a powerful Brazilian drug lord and a dangerous federal agent. I haven't enjoyed any of these movies and yet for some reason, I am still hoping that at least one of them will be good. This movie is so much better than the previous four movies. Everyone involved knows what kind of movie they are trying to make and that's just an entertaining movie with tons of action, bullets and explosions and the movie does not disappoint at all. The action in this movie is some of the best I've seen in a long time and my favorite part of the action is it's all practical there is no CGI or computer effects. You can tell that everyone in the cast had a blast making this film they know that the action is so over-the-top and they love it and I loved it too. My favorite action scene is when they drive the bank vault out of the police station that scene is so much fun to watch. There is also a lot of improvements to story-wise and acting-wise. The storyline this time is a lot more focused and interesting and it's cool to see the cast step up a little they are still not great actors, but it's an improvement. This one made me get attached to these characters. This film adds Dwayne Johnson and he's always a lot of fun to watch. Of course, there are some problems with the movie there was a small part of the film that dragged a little bit, but thankfully that doesn't last long. 4 out of 5 stars for Fast Five.
