Dudes. Fast Five trailer. Cars. Guns. Explosions. One-liners. Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.
“We don’t ever ever let them get in cars.”
“This just went from mission impossible to mission in-freaking-sanity.”
“Chances are sooner or later we’re going to end up behind bars or buried in a ditch somewhere … but not today.”
The Fast and the Furious has transformed into a heist flick for its fifth outing, in what looks like a mash-up of Ocean’s Eleven and Gone in Sixty Seconds. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Can’t wait to check this one out. If it’s great, we win because of the abundance of high-speed action. And if it’s bad we still win, because it will be hilarious… with high-speed action.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.
Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) 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 (Johnson) 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.
Directed by Justin Lin (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious), Fast Five opens on April 29.
