2012 #127 - Fast Five
Color me surprised, because this film kicked major ass. I’ve been told by many to check it out, that it’s a fun ride and you’ll have a lot of fun. I had planned to do this, but one thing led to another and fast forward many months later and I saw it available at my local library. So I grabbed it and I have to say I enjoyed it immensely. My favorite, by far, in the series because they somehow reinvented themselves in the process. A car chase movie that is also a heist film and adding The Rock as the guy trying to take them down was inspired casting. Seeing The Rock in this makes me wish Faster had done better as opposed to his child fare. To each their own, though. And tying everything and everyone from previous films together was a fun idea as well. Justin Lin, you wowed me with this one. Can’t wait to see where they go next.
