Fast Five

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, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, 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 (Dwayne Johnson) never misses his target. — (C) Universal

Scott’s Take – 3 1/2 Stars

I wasn’t looking forwarded to seeing Fast Five.  I endured the previous films and absolutely dreaded sitting down for this one.  What a shock to see that this isn’t just the best entry in the series but Fast Five is actually a well paced crime/action film that will actually give you whiplash.  Check this one out folks, it’s good!

Steve’s Take

I have never really liked this series. I had no thoughts of seeing this movie when it hit the theaters, but now I have to say I’m intrigued. Not intrigued like Wade was when talking about the Knicks, but really intrigued. I might take a look at it.
