Pretty Good

I'm not rating this on cinematic brilliance, but for an action movie it was really quite good, a lot better than the last couple in the franchise. It was great to see the characters from all the films finally come together!

Easily one of the best action films of this decade.

This film is everything is should be. It knows what it is and it knows what it can do and it pushes both of these things to the full extent. Whilst purporting itself as a high-octane, adrenaline-filled fist-pump oozing with machismo, i got the sense that Fast Five also saw itself as a satirical commentary on the action genre itself.

Best Fast & Furious film yet..

There's a scene about half an hour in to Justin Lin's Fast Five, the latest film in the car racing Fast & Furious franchise, where federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) angrily throws a clipboard to the floor as his explanation of something that "makes sense". It's this moment that totally sums up Fast Five: a film you can enjoy only by casting...

The Fast and Furious roadshow isn't slowing down a bit in Fast Five, by most measures the best of the bunch, combining fresh casting choices, interesting Rio locales and literally smashing bookended action sequences.

You'd think the Fast And The Furious franchise would've run out of gas by now. Think again.

Make no mistake, this is no masterpiece of the dramatic arts but it is probably the best since the original: lean, spectacular, funny and slightly less risible than its predecessors.

Utterly preposterous, but this car-crazy franchise is armor-plated.

Tough on nuance, tough on the causes of nuance, this episode has the highest velocity and lowest IQ yet. See it on the biggest, loudest, dumbest screen you can find.
