    Generic and forgettable apart from an excellent finale action scene that actually makes the rest of the film worth watching. 5 years 1 month ago

    While I have absolutely zero interest in street racing, I DO have an interest in heist movies. And Fast Five is essentially Ocean's Eleven on wheels. I'd like to say a decade makes a big difference, but the original film really couldn't use that as an excuse. I'd rather blame the direction. The original was made by Rob Cohen, also responsible for the equally soulless XxX, for example. Justin Lin picked up the franchise from Tokyo Drift on, and is a much better fit. I admire Fast Five if only for the sense of GEOGRAPHY he brings to the action. You always know where each participant is in any given chase scene, and he doesn't mind pushing the action well past the line of ridiculous. If you're going to make dumb action movies that require some suspension of disbelief, just GO FOR IT. You've got to give me something I haven't seen before, and I've seen a lot of things already. I think the bank vault-dragging climax counts. Awesome, crazy idea. So with the addition of The Rock as an extreme cop who both hunts and teams up with the crew, and a style that heightens everyone's charisma just a touch, Lin churns out a winner. Not if only he could make the Tyrese Gibson's character seem at all funny... 3 years 1 month ago
