Rating: 3 of 5
I really liked Fast 5. And because of that I kind of have a soft spot for the Fast & Furious movies. kind of. I mean, I haven’t seen the first movie in years and would love to rewatch it. I saw the second movie and thought it was ridiculous. Have never seen the third movie. I tried to but couldn’t get past the first fifteen minutes. The fourth one is on tv all the time so I’ve seen that quite a bit and it’s fun enough on a Saturday afternoon with nothing going on. But I really expected to like 6 at least as much as I liked 5.
I mean, it has Luke Evans! That’s like half your Performance score right there for awesome casting. And the story brings Leti back, even though I’m not a huge fan of Michelle Rodriguez it provides a nice emotional core for all the action.
Still, it’s very fast and very pretty and very shiny. And Luke Evans! That makes for a pretty decent Fast & Furious movie.
