At the Movies: Fast & Furious 6

Movie: Fast & Furious 6
Stars: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Ludacris, Luke Evans
My Rating: 5/5

What I loved~
The flirtatiousness of Dom and Letty getting to know each other for the first time...again. It was an unexpected romantic element to a franchise that its known for action, action and more action. But these two finding each other again amid gun fights, races, and a whole lot of crazy was just perfect.

The setting! From the Canary Islands to London to Spain. It's not about getting the shots and action sequences right. It's also about having the perfect backdrop to enhance those things. A fast race is dangerous. A fast race with multiple cars through the tight streets of London is DANGEROUS. See the difference?

Flying shit everywhere. I mean planes, cars, tanks, people...
And Roman isn't the only one to fly either. It was a bunch of ridiculousness that I couldn't help but love. This is why I go watch these movies: to see the impossible and laugh.

What I liked~
We've seen this crew battle through a lot and the camaraderie is evident here as they embark on yet another mission. Roman Pierce had the funniest most annoying comments and moments ever (yes, that is a good thing.) and Tej was right there being sarcastic and poking at him. Han had the sweetest moments with Gisele (this girl is like totally badass! Dare I say, much more so than Letty). And dammit, I knew he was dead, but seeing it again </3

What I felt missing~
Sexy cars...Okay, so they're not exactly missing. They're freaking everywhere, but none of them stayed in my mind like say Dom's Charger in the first movie or Han's orange Mazda in Tokyo. The only one that I really appreciated was the red Dodge Daytona, which is of course Dom's.

Fast & Furious 7 preview. Dear god, it's...It's Statham!
