Every character is a mastermind, they could drive rings around the Ocean crew, not that their driving all that much this time around, The Rock likes his dessert first, here is an explosion, its almost like watching Call of Duty except with an extra serving of muscle, its all a tad silly and very ridiculous and not at all that good but at least it was more watchable than the fourth one.

Sue me I had a great time with it. Instead of ditching the cringe dialogue and ludacris (pun intended) action, it completely embraces what it is and makes great use of it. It's throughly entertaining and the action is actually fairly superb! I also love Han, so thats a plus. This is better than the first four films. Great film if you want mindless, entertaining action and storytelling.

Do you smell that? No that isn't the expected trademark "Fast and Furious" burnt rubber you smell. You smell the impact of an actual action-star in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and exactly what he's cooking up new inside the franchise. The fifth film in the series is a bit too long with plenty of the expected lethargic Vin Diesel conversations about family, but also all the expected hot girls, car porn, and grade-A physics defying action schlock. 10 cans of Axe Body SprayTM

By no means a good film. Walker is wooden and Diesel is hilariously hopeless. Sharing the frame with the force of nature that is The Rock (their face-off was somewhat disappointing), it's painfully apparent that this guy has less than zero charisma. Despite its leading men, the fifth film in the franchise is quite entertaining, thanks mostly to swift pacing. Plotting is bog-standard, the dramatic scenes terrible, the humour very broad. If you can stand that, then this is a relatively good time.

Fast Five is the best film in the series to date and returning director Justin Lin finally shows off his full capabilities. All the original cast are back from the previous four films plus the addition of Dwayne Johnson. The series has moved on from its street racing days and has become a full blown action heist. Vin Diesel and the Rock's face off is awesome and the finale is the most ridiculously enjoyable set piece I've seen in a long time. Fast Five has injected life back into the franchise.

This is big, dumb, stupid fun done perfectly. It turns out that if you take the cast of the Fast & Furious movies, plug them into a remake of Ocean's Eleven, and add The Rock, you get a really entertaining action movie. The safe sequence is classic.

The first 90 minutes are pure machismo and shockingly dumb action (in the best way). That's worth about a 50. Then the last 30 minutes happens, which can best be described as "Saints Row 3: The Movie" One point awarded for each minute.

Dear My Brain, I'm sorry I sort of enjoyed this movie. I know things have been tough lately and I'm not using you enough, but you have to admit when those cars did those things and other things went crash and boom, that was kinda neat. I hope we can still work together in harmony despite this lapse in good taste. Regards, The Rest Of Your Body. P.S. I might have become kinda gay for The Rock.

One of those that will entertain you, but has nothing else to offer... Same as the previous 4 installments in the FF franchise... This time they've gathered everyone and made it more of a heist movie, which gives it an Oceans Eleven touch for the MTV Generation... The Rock is the highlight and that kind of role is his definite match... I wonder how he gets his T-shirt of at nighht!

Despite the promising concept of The Rock and Vin Diesel knocking the shit out of each other, until the movie-screen itself starts emitting blood and testosterone, the mindlessness ("plot"/ jokes/ things-that-don't-go-boom) ultimately overshadows the fun (action-set pieces / blowing the everloving fuck out of various things and places)

It took five movies, but the Fast & Furious franchise FINALLY finds itself here. It turns out the series lends itself almost perfectly to Ocean's-Eleven-style intrigue.

Easily one of the best of the Fast franchise. I'm not a huge car guy, so maybe it's because this movie seems to be taking the franchise away from the racing game. This is mostly a straight up heist movie. One in which the characters fight mano a mano and not behind the wheel. This movie is definitely a little long & still a little clunky, but the train robbery is one of the best action scenes of 2011.

Christ the Redeemer statue watching Paul Walker do favela parkour. The whole movie epitomizes a "Christian in necklace only" vibe that makes the brand loyalty to shitty beer look like a more genuine ethos. Precision driving and high-performance cars seem like an afterthought here, the series has bigger = bettered itself into rocket launchers and slobber knockers with The Rock, who is admittedly a hoot with his cop show one-liners.

Considered the best by many, Fast Five is the most polished of the franchise. It did a very good job of balancing its dumb action tropes while also pulling off a solid (if yet a bit unrealistic) heist film. On top of that, this one kinda started bringing the "family" together, and you begin to see the chemistry come full circle and every time I come back to watch this, the film did a lot more than I realize. It's quite amazing to see where the franchise has come.

For an entry into such a proudly dumb franchise, I'm surprised and impressed by how much respect Fast Five shows for its fanbase. Characters from every film in the series return, most for the first time since their initial appearances, all of them picking up their character arcs where they left off two to ten years ago. Tons of references to events and stories from every film, and a neat credits scene. Oh, and cool car chases and The Rock. (I still like Tokyo Drift better though.)

Loved the action/fight scenes. The races were pretty good. Pretty entertaining, especially Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. The only thing I found disappointing was the budding crush between Dom and a female officer (too easy). Minus that, this is good for a guy's night out.

The main action sequence consists of two muscle cars towing a safe which flails around like a giant medieval morning star demolishing cars and buildings. If this appeals to you on some primal level then this is the movie for you. This is a return to beefcake action with Diesel, Rock, and friends hamming it up. The exotic locale and setting in Rio is a nice change of pace too but Joaquim de Almeida's casting as the archvillain in every movie involving latin america is getting a bit old.

Probably my most anticipated of the dumb summer blockbusters and it delivers. I love the way The Rock delivers every line, so great. Has a shitload of plot holes and the story is pretty weak but you come for the cars and the action and get a money shot filled with both. The first chase scene with The Rock and Vin is straight out of Uncharted 2. In other words, badass. Every time Tyrese speaks you want to kill yourself, man that guy is terrible. Pretty good, would've liked the R rating though.

Vin Diesel and The Rock pit their absurd macho charms against each other in this fifth installment in the awesomely named Fast/Furious franchise. The series has done well to steer into action movie territory, and does a nice job of upping the stakes here. This entry raises the bar for the series with improved structure, pacing, stuntwork; even the acting has gotten better. These movies are quickly turning into ''The Expendables' fast cars people who actually want to be there.'

Finally, something clicks in the writer's room: High-energy heists are what we do best!, so we get a train robbery, a ludicrous rolling safe, and the best of the franchise so far. Too many planned elements are scrapped, which makes a lot of the build-up feel pointless, and (sorry!) Paul Walker is clearly suffering a Samson effect, losing charm the shorter his hair gets—now buzzcut, he's the weakest link in the cast—but overall this is a well-mixed cocktail of high budget entertainment.

The filmmakers made a smart move here: they changed the franchise from just about street racing to an action/heist thing. It had some good action scenes & the addition of Dwayne Johnson was nice. They really tried to hammer home the importance of family, friendship (and religion?) & their attempts at emotional resonance worked better than in any of the other films. Not that that's saying much, but still. I liked how they brought back several characters from the earlier films in the series.

It's becoming apparent that the FURIOUS films seem to want to scrabble for an identity of their own but can't quite settle on what that should be - resulting in a bizarre series entry which combines LETHAL WEAPON with OCEAN'S 11 in an MCU world building framework, resulting in an at times leaden, ungainly concoction needlessly padded to over 2 hours. Doesn't help that these group of actors don't have the requisite charisma to make the heavy-handed emotional moments pop.

I never thought I'd ever enjoy one of these films, which despite Paul Walker's acting, Diesel's incessant one-liners and having nothing to do with street racing anymore, serves up a hefty dose of unpretentious, CGI-free, balls to the wall action. Some middling character development and an underwhelming antagonist, but it works for the most part. Had a smile on my face, every time The Rock appeared on screen. See it, if you despised its predecessors like myself.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

The fifth movie in the Fast and the Furious series. Looks like the old gang is still together. I went into this movie hoping to hate it but I actually thought it was pretty entertaining. This time I felt like it was a lot less about cars and more about the heist they were going to pull off. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel don't really inspire with their acting but they play their roles how they were written. The best part was finally seeing Vin Diesel get into a fight with the Rock which was cool.

This can only be enjoyed as a cheesefest. I still don't know if I actually liked it, but I was entertained. In the end, Lin's film is a walking vegetable in that it may be completely brain-dead, but it sure has a pulse. Granted, the action is completely impossible---and I won't dare to spoil the outrageous howlers of sequences boiling over in this installment---but at least you can follow it and appreciate it as an over-the-top exercise in macho excess.

Since when did "being more watchable than the last one" become something that we commend in movies like this? This was atrocious. I knew what I was walking into, but Goddammit. This turd is polished so hard, that's how Rock got all his muscles. Tacked-on, useless, contrived emotional subtexts, action that fizzes out before you even start shaking the bottle... and for 130 minutes, at that. The only serviceable thing in the whole movie was Rock's character. At least you got your paychecks, kids.

Things go smash! And boom! And kapow! Seriously, it's really stupid and the story doesn't make that much sense, but the action sequences are really well done and appear to use mostly practical effects. It helps you forget that the crew has basically murdered thousands of people for no good reason, or that they keep trusting this one guy even though he has betrayed them very obviously in the very recent past. Some moments seem to require knowing that deep Fast and Furious mythology however.

Tough to review in that it is so tremendously entertaining, but often because it is so absurdly stupid. Is it a bad movie? No doubt about it. But it's bad in all the best ways. The entire audience was howling with laughter at many of the movie's more serious moments. When it gets bogged down in talk about "family" it's a struggle, but when they get behind the wheel, it's a ton of fun. The Rock is so perfect here, giving an outstanding action film performance.

Fast Five is nothing short of exceedingly fun action set pieces and overbearing testosterone. Thankfully this time it's used in service to an actual story worth the bloated run time.

I liked those movies more when it was about small time guys doing small time things. The whole taking down a crime empire and wrecking Rio act didn't do much for me.

Fast Five pulls a nasty bait-and-switch which renders a large portion of its running time redundant. I was saddened by this, as it made me feel like I had wasted my time watching it. Don't get me wrong, as it's intermittently fun and the last action sequence alone almost justifies a watch, but I just wish it would have went in a different direction. It's a generic action film with characters you've seen on and off for four previous iterations.

So the gang is back together, and thank god because they were able to come back from the terrible 'Fast and Furious'. This is in no way a good movie, but it is a hell of a lot more entertaining than the previous two I've seen. The acting is still pretty terrible, the story is very cliche and unbelievable. Some parts of this movie were absolutely cringe worthy that I was laughing at some supposed 'serious' parts. Still, it's a decent comeback at least.

To be fair this is more than a tolerable film 4 non-fans, but definitely not the great guilty pleasure many critics claimed it was. It smartly embraces its implausibility & overheated cheeseballsiness, but the fact is there's really only 2 outrageous action sequences surrounded by take-it-or-leave-it cliches. Still points 4 originality must b given 2 any movie that turns a bank vault in2 a speeding offensive weapon.
