Default Fast and/or Furious 6

Surprised there hasn't been a thread on this already. Caught it this weekend and thought it delivered what it promised. Some great, well-constructed action scenes. Solid, fun dynamic within the team. Some half-hearted attempts at emotion, and cars. The focus wasn't even much on the cars themselves which, being a car nut, I found kind of annoying.

Also, a lot of really, really improbable/impossible **** going on and some fairly large plot holes, but what do you really expect? It really is a pretty unprecedented franchise, it's 6th outing and still has a A+ cinemascore with those under 25, brings minorities to the theaters in droves while still being "mainstream." I saw the whole gamut in my theater, young, old, men, women etc.

---Spoiler Alert---




It features the longest airstrip in the history of the world. I mean seriously, that is the only part I found too incredulous to handle.

You didn't find that Dom and Letty scene on the bridge a little unbelievable? lol I liked the movie also. It was really entertaining and mindless fun. Chris Morgan has the goods and is a great guy. I'm happy for him.

I like the Fast and Furious movies don't take themselves too seriously. The ensemble cast has really good chemistry together and play off each other well. Tyrese really excels in these movies. Him and Ludacris had me rolling. The Rock needs to do more of these kind of movies. He fits in well with the crew.

Oh yeah. That too. I guess it was unbelievable in a different way, like movie unbelievable. The airstrip thing was just "wait...this does not compute."

My good friend/client is one of the main leading cast, so I may have reason to be a bit biased, but I REALLY enjoyed it. It's not rocket science, but it was a damn fun time at the theater. It was really great seeing everyone around me enjoying it as well. That's what going to the movies is all about. You want to feel your money was worth it, and in this case, it is. Yeah ok maybe the dialogue is silly and the acting can be touch and go...but it's fun, funny, heartfelt, and the action (while scientifically ridiculous) was insanely entertaining. Keeping in mind I've always been very honest with the person about how their projects turn out, I honestly feel this one was the best of the franchise, by far.

I also give major kudos to this franchise for showing the industry that racial diversity isn't something to fear, nor are strong women on screen.

SPOILERS**************************



Having Dom walk out of the flames carrying Gisele, or Gisele appearing at the ending barbecue scene would have been more satisfying. While her sacrifice was meaningful, just killing her off seemed pointless. Killing off Han in the Tag was just tasteless. Talk about kicking someone when they're down...

SPOILERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS














They had to kill Han. He was dead after Tokyo Drift. These movies were prequels to the events in Tokyo Drift. So Han had to die. They just tied up loose ends.

I read that, due to scheduling issues, the Rock won't be in Fast 7.

Absolutely ridiculous movie....

...In the best way possible. If you can switch off your Screenwriter brain? Hard to think of a movie I've had that much fun in a theater with in a LONGGG (GGGGGG) time.

But all your lack of Riley/Carano is a BADASS talk is..... disappointing. Someone get on that!
