*SPOILERS* Quite easily the most entertaining film of the year so far. After watching such disappointments such as the awful Iron Man 3 and ridiculously long and hard to watch Into Darkness (due to all the camera flares) I was happy to go into this movie with no expectations, switch off and enjoy the ride. After the previous Fast and Furious films I have learned to take them with a pinch of salt and if you do that you will love it! It was a 3 star film until the very end scene (which I'm surprised Empire didn't bump up to 4 stars because it is The Stath after all).

I walked out of this with a big, stupid grin on my face. Yes, the acting mainly involves everyone looking pissed off or stoic, yes the constant references to 'family' get a bit wearing, but this delivers as a high energy, adrenaline fuelled over the top spectacular. The stunts and actions scenes were inventive and thrilling, ans its so nice to see this without the added value of blur o vision (3D), as opposed to Star Trek, where I had to shut my eyes through a quarter of the film, or iron man, which was just a mush. Two hours of unapologetic , noisy entertainment, with no pretensions to do anything other than raise your heart rate.

FAF5 was, much to everyones surprise, rather good. I'm guessing even the makers didn't intend to turn out such an entertaining movie.

So the pressure was on number 6, suddenly a middling franchise had expectations, and for the most part it delivers.
Paul walker, bless him, has almost learned how to act. the Rock isn't over used and the stunts are as gloriously stupid as ever.
And if you don't get a giggle out of Vin Deisels flying headbut then you're probally a little dead inside.

there's a few little niggles mostly around Vin diesel, I was surprised his ego didn;t get a script writing credit.
Not to mention he has the most understanding girlfriend in the world ever.

But overall it's a hoot from beginning to end, just hoping number 7 can take full avantage of the stath in ways the Expendables failed to.

There's a moment early on in this film when a uniformed british police officer leans out of a moving car during a high speed chase and proceeds to shoot a machine gun at our villains, we realise the USA has some seriously warped vision of what the UK is really like.

Its odd - i really didnt like Die Hard 5 and this film falls into the same category - noone gets hurt despite what FUCKING INSANE shit they get up to.

Its not as good as 5, but damn it was a shitload of fun, and after that last scene i cannot wait for fast 7. Now getmeacartodrive!!!

Last night I experienced my first dose of the disorganised mayhem that is the Fast and the Furious franchise.

As a fan of cinema I'm not entirely sure how the previous five movies slipped me by, and having left the cinema 130 minutes later I could at least understand how this franchise has reached six movies going on seven if the final scene is anything to go by.

This film had both everything and nothing. All that you'd expect from a fast paced action movie without ever really pushing the boundaries laid down by other recent action epics (Skyfall, Looper and Star Trek come to mind).

There are a number of impressive set pieces, the Soviet cargo aircraft climax was particularly gripping and profoundly produced the top moment of the movie as Dwayne Johnson laid out his four hundred and fifty pound mass muscle counterpart with a spectacular flying right fist.

The general humour of the movie felt rather conventional. Tyrese Gibson employed as the comic relief throughout, could only ever seem to muster the obvious response 'I've got a tank on my ass!' when the situation perhaps called for a multi-coloured purport instead of his constant over-optimism. A couple of wise cracks about 'big ass foreheads' aside and an amusing diffident moment in the London underground as Gibson and Sung-Kang get categorically lambasted by lead villain Shaw's martial arts specialist, the comedy side of this movie was perhaps the least endearing side to a movie that did quite impressively provoke a number of emotions.

Vin Diesel provides a solid performance whilst Luke Evans excelled in the role of top agent turned bad, who's plan to create a powerful weapon becomes unstuck at the final hurdle despite piecing together the rest flawlessly before Dwayne Johnson turns to his own group of International fugitives.

But this movie never really provides anything original. Every turn the movie takes is far to predictable and every set piece finishes with a flurry of explosions which

Highly satisfying action movie! - 31/5/2013 4:20:48 PM

Wish every single action movie was like Furious 6. Highly entertaining with really good jokes, cool chemistry between the leads... and extensive, over the top action sequences.

Here's not an action film that promised you action but ends up delivering a few unsatisfying short action scenes which were all featured in the trailers. The action of Furious 6 is generous, daring, original, well filmed, laugh-out-loud and really impressive. Just like Quentin Tarantino isn't afraid of a 20min conversation, Justin Lin has no problem with 20min long action sequences.

Sure the movie's dumb and the connection between the action scenes sometimes really obious. But Justin Lin knows exactly what it's all about, he's not trying to do something else, just to do it the best way possible. Congrats, box office results are well deserved!

More lunk headed entertainment from the FF franchise. Just like all the other previous entries in the series, this film has no real plot. It’s just an excuse to watch some cool cars and bruising violence while ogling at a lot of half naked women. It’s all as dumb as they come – but boy it’s entertaining! Vin Diesel’s throat now sounds like he’s been gargling acid laced with tungsten steel and broken glass – and how long was that BLASTED airport runway at the end supposed to be anyway? 2miles? Twenty miles? Who cares??? Turn your brain off, sit back and let the mayhem wash all over you. And I won’t mention the little teaser at the end…..ooops….. too late……. FOUR STARS.

The perfect tonic to that horrid mess Die Hard 5.

The action scenes were exciting, coherent, and completely ridiculous but I really enjoyed the movie.

Actually worried about Fast 7 without Justin Lin directing!

Very trashy, but exactly what I expected. Two hours of hugely entertaining rubbish, that must be doing something right to have a post credits scene that leaves me wanting number seven! Seven! Apart from JJ Abrams next project, I can't ever remember anticipating a seventh instalment of anything....

The team is back again and after a nice retrospective over the opening credits Justin Lin the director from a script by Chris Morgan gets down to the action. Under Lin’s command the action set-pieces are superb but Morgan’s dialogue is trite and predictable.
One of the more memorable exchanges,
“aren’t you team muscle? don’t make me go over there and make you team pussy.”

This time the team are recruited by Luke Hobbs (Johnson) to bring down a crack team of criminals under the stewardship of Shaw (Evans) ex SAS black ops soldier, he’s a baddass who is building a “tech bomb” to blackout communications for 24 hours, blinding a country destroying lives and earning him billions. Hobbs describes the outfit as absolute precision professionals “they hit like thunder and disappear like smoke.” For Dom (Diesel) this provides an opportunity to go get Letty (Rodriguez) and bring her home. It’s an opportunity for the crew to make the family whole again. They live by the code of ride or die and the family is everything. Not everything flows smoothly this time as the team take-on a crew of their evil twins; Luke Evans makes an impressive nemesis as the cold hearted Shaw. Shot in London and Spain demonstrating a Bond like penchant for changing locations with each instalment of the franchise.

Let’s face it these films are not made for the intellectually elite. They are simply about fast cars and crashing stuff up whilst looking good in the process. It’s a celebration of the stunt men and women responsible for the breathless action sequences that pervade this movie. At about the twenty minute mark it starts with chase sequence through the streets of London at night, jump twenty minutes then we have another spectacular chase through the London Underground and the movie is just getting started. Lin directs action so you can keep track of what’s happening unlike many of his contemporar

Miles better than the previous one. Over the top but not to the degree of lugging around a room size safe with two cars! Doesn't take itself seriously but blends in some nice character moments with the car scenes.
Not sure if London is the ideal setting for speeding cars but this si not a film you are supposed tho think about - just enjoy

In Fast and Furious 6, Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) goes to Dom (Vin Diesel) for help tracking down a team of criminals who have caused problems in over a dozen of different countries. Hobbs had been given the task of capturing Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), who’s intent is to steal methods of building a high-tech bomb capable of ruining a country. Dom was not interested in Agent Hobbs request until Agent Hobbs hands him over an image of the team that he was going after. In that image was Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s past love who was supposedly killed a few years back. Dom was very surprised with what he saw and got his crew together and goes and hunts down the team for Agent Hobbs. Explosions, shootouts, high-speed chases, and many other things happened until they got to Shaw and Letty. There was a lot of action and thriller involved in this movie. Audience members like action it keeps their eyes glued to the screen and paying attention to what is going on. Fast and Furious 6 is the best movie of the 2013 because it provided great sound tracks, great entertainment, and a well-known set of cast members.
The producers of Fast and Furious 6 knew exactly what kind of music went well with the different scenes of the movie. They picked soundtracks that the audience can enjoy while watching the movie. Most movies just add any type of soundtrack that sometimes doesn’t even go with a movie. The opening scene in the movie was a short summary of what the film was going to be about. It opens up with the song “we Own It” playing in the background. The lyrics of the song really helped with the movie opening. For example, as the song was playing, Dom pull’s his car up next to Letty’s and used the lyric “ride or die.” He says to her “ride or die remember?” and then the rest of the song keeps playing. The song lyric “I never feared death or dying, I only fear never trying” was shown in th
