Tagline: Fast Becoming a Cult Classic
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker bring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on-board for a flaming, slamming, banging, pistol-whipping thrill ride through Rio de Janeiro in the latest installment of Fast and Furious. The plot is hot and the action delivers a payload of non-stop plot. Hollywood tricks include bringing one of Diesel’s crew back from the dead. Ludacris gets a solid support role in the mix of scoundrels who are as competent in their crime chops as Diesel is at pulling off his smart mouth talk backs to the federales who are trying to take him down. As the hard-nosed Dom Torretto, Diesel comes through in spades even though his middle aged shadow is haunting his jaw line a little bit. But such is the fate of an action hero.
The showstealer isn’t any one cast member though. Not by a longshot according to this seasoned action adventure viewer. It is the fast moving metal tonnage scenes where flesh covered beings risk life and limb either escaping or stealing something worth a king’s ransome. I say this though thinking that Paul Walker has, perhaps out of the entire cast, the longevity of a real emerging star than the youth-prone figures the Rock and Diesel are intent on riding out into middle age. Walker (The Takers) plays the consummate low-key thief who waits to make his play. The combination of competent thieves and flying hulks of metal and collapsing buildings make for one heckuva ride.
The automobile action and chase scenes are top flight. My standard on chase scenes though are quite high- the chase through Nice in “The Transporter” (Jason Statham post bank heist) and “Ronin” ( DeNiro et al). Fast and Furious 5 does not disappoint in its presentation of standards, for bad guy poses, dedicated good guys (Dwayne Johnson is hard to not like even should he pick your pocket), chase scenes, crime planning, and crime execution.
There is something for everybody to see in this action-based crime saga. However, if you are thinking this might be a good flick to leave with your pre-teen boys and the sitter, think again. The partially clad derrieres of the fairer sex abound in this picture. The femme fatales won’t ever rival Michelle Rodriguez from earlier installments. Dom doesn’t seem to mind as we are exposed to a fair amount of tonsil hockey between himself and his newfound moll.played ably by Gal Gadot.
