Review: Fast 5


Bear in mind that I’m rating this as a brainless summer action movie. Within that category this film deserves that rating.

If you liked any of the preceeding films, this should do just fine for you. I enjoy this kind of film as an opportunity to sit back, relax, and let my brain unwind. Don’t expect anything else and you’ll do just fine. Nothing crept in to break by suspension of disbelief, the plot hung together well enough to hang the action scenes on. There wouldn’t be any Oscars for the acting, but it wasn’t painful.

As for the action? Appropriate levels of explosions and gun play; with more fast cars than you can shake a stick at. I got everything I expected out of it.

If you go to see it, stick around for the mid credits stinger 😉
