*It may have been titled “Fast Five,” but the film was definitely a six cylinder full throttle ride, that doesn’t let up on the gas for the 2 hour and 30 minute adrenaline rush. This was definitely one of the best installments to the 11-year running franchise of The Fast and the Furious.

Now there are some critics who might say, “yeah right, the fifth installment of anything can’t be good.”  But due to the key factors of the combining the cast from the first four movies, excellent actions sequences, beautiful location set in Brazil, and  director Justin Lin with his ability to tie it all together, it adds up be one hell of a ride, without letting off the gas.

While the story line may seem a bit familiar, not swaying away from the original formula from the other four installments, the corny yet witty humor, action packed yet decent storyline and the touching yet random sentimental scenes all some how come together and makes this film a solid beginning to this spring and summers’ line up of action blockbusters.

Bottom Line: if you’re into action packed films with breathtaking stunts and “knock your socks off” sequences, “Fast Five” is going to take you on the ride of your life. Check out the trailer below.
