Fast & Furious 5

Review: Fast & Furious 5

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.

Whilst Diesel seems to be taking thing a bit too seriously, the Rock knows exactly what film he is in and abuses this knowledge to the fullest extent. I can see myself watching this film over and over in the coming years.

A damned good job!
