Fast & Furious 6: My Thoughts

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.

Brian (Paul Walker) and Dom (Vin Diesel)
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.   

Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Riley (Gina Carano)
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.

My thoughts:
Yup!!! Watched Fast & Furious 6 last night!!! And, I don't know, what can I say, except that it was..A (wait for it!)...MAZING!!! Yes, the stunt scenes and fast cars were incredibly amazing! "Dayum!" Pretty much came to my mind as I sat in the theater watching this sixth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. And, don't forget, the fast carss!!! Yes, the trademark of this franchise are the fast cars, and this film does not disappoint with the awesome cars. I was very happy that it explained how "Letty" (Michelle Rodriguez) could still be alive since last we "saw," she was killed. It was like watching the end of Fast Five connecting to Fast & Furious 6. Overall, I loved how the film connected all the other Fast & Furious films and came round full circle...from the beginning...back home at "1327."

I absolutely loved it! It was an adrenalin pumping, action-filled, storytelling movie that definitely put all the senses on overdrive. But, that's just me...haha! I loved the story/plot, the action, the fast pace...yes, the fast cars, the fight scenes...and, can't forget, the incredibly amazing WHOA!! Really!!??!! Not to forget the end where it took us to Tokyo...leaving fans for a seventh installment...with Jason Statham!?! Like REALLY!!??!! Dayum!!! I will definitely watching this upcoming seventh installment of the Fast & Furious franchise.

I'd say go watch it! It looks amazing on the big screen...again, that's just me. :)
