“Fast Five” Movie Review

 (action, humor, terrific ending)

After an exciting escape from a prison bound bus, Vin Diesel (as Dominic Toretto) and team gather in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to take down the most powerful man in town…Joaquim de Almeida (as Reyes). The lure of making $100 million (split about 10 ways) made the job of taking down Reyes worthwhile.

Unfortunately, an elite team of U.S. Gov’t special agents, led by Duane Johnson (as the totally ripped, Hobbs), are on the hunt for Diesel (who is super cool)…they never fail to find the bad guys, so the clock is ticking for Diesel.

How they try to take Reyes’ money, while avoiding The Rock, is the basis of “Fast Five”.

Some of the dialogue was lame…”They are planning something big”….DUH.  But the action, humor and an absolutely terrific last 35 or 40 minutes made this movie well worth the cost!

Go see it, leave your brain at home, and enjoy.

Drive Safe!  Never Forget.
