John & Becky’s Movie Review of Fast Five

Becky and I went to see the new Fast Five movie last night with our friends. The Fandango website at Fast Five describes the movie as follows:

“Ever since ex-cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and Mia Torretto (Jordana Brewster) broke her brother Dom (Vin Diesel) out of custody, they’ve traveled border to border to evade authorities. In Rio de Janeiro, they must do one final job before they can gain their freedom for good. Assembling their elite team of car racers, Brian and Dom know they must confront the corrupt businessman who wants them dead, before the federal agent (Dwayne Johnson) on their trail finds them…”

The Review
Fast Five is the fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious series and it stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, although I think he just wants to be known as Dwayne Johnson now.  The film is over the top nuts and comic book believable as you would expect, if you’ve seen any of the previous movies.

You can’t believe 95% of the film that any of these things could even remotely happen, including street car races, massive machine gun fire with bullets flying everywhere, running from the police cop cars in another country no less, robbing a bank, jumping out of moving vehicles at high speed or even the intense fist fights.  However, suspend any hint of reality when you go to see this movie and just sit back and enjoy it like an amusement park ride into crazy land.  There are some amazing and rare fast cars, guns, girls and wild events that take place during the movie.  It’s a thrill ride!  Fast Five has plenty of action and cool cars and it’s fun.  If you just go for the entertainment value of an off-the-wall action film with characters that border on being super heros.

If you don’t have this attitude than you’re probably not going to like the movie, even though there is a pretty good story to go along with it.  Becky and I went with our friends Rod and Kimberly and they both liked it and Becky didn’t care for it at all.  I thought it was super cool and fun, but I also love seeing fast cars and action films on the big screen.  Even if they are unrealistic, I have a good time.

I liked it enough that the neighbor boy came over tonight and asked Corban if he could go see it and I said, “Only if I go along and we bring Conroy.” Dad of the Year – I know.  It’s definitely not a kid’s movie for those of you who are more responsible parents than I am, but what the heck it’s rated PG-13, so I’m going to blame it on the ratings committee.  We’re out of here!  Zoom-Zoom.
