Thanks to the good people at [OMY] and United International Pictures (UIP), I was among the lucky few invited to preview FAST & FURIOUS 5 at Film Garde, Iluma tonight.
I have to be very honest here.
I did not watch the first four instalments thus I do not know what I was expecting from the movie. However, the action picked up and I was soon gripping my seat for the remainder of the show.
Nevermind that the "escaping on corrugated zinc rooftop" scene reminds me of a Jacky Chan movie. Do not even try to figure why the Kingpin's bank vault is under protection inside the police station.
Throw your logic out of the window because some scenes here do not make any sense at all.
Imagine a bus full of convicts flipping over several times yet not a single person dies? And how about hauling a gigantic bank vault all over Rio and crashing everything (trees, vehicles, buildings) in it's path?
FAST & FURIOUS 5 is a non-stop action film that pumps your adrenaline to the highest level so hold on to your seat (seatbelt not required!) and enjoy the show.
Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities.
Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.
Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad.
Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.
