It breaks down like this; Fast Five supposedly takes place before the third movie, but after the fourth. If that sounds like it’ll be a tricky movie to follow, don’t worry - it’s not. Why they decided to make it more confusing than needs be is beyond me. I don’t pretend to understand these movies, “bro,” but I have to admit they are one spectacle of fun and jazzy proportions, not to mention a huge Guilty Pleasure of mine. It's fantastically, awful movie-crack.
This time around we venture Rio de Janeiro, where the car chases and the action scenes increase considerably. Dwayne Johnson plays one badass, over the top U.S. agent who’s hot on Diesel's trail, and before you know it the whole thing progresses to one of the silliest heists ever.
I absolutely loved this movie! It’s definitely the best in the series, which isn't saying a whole lot. It’s big, loud, stupid... and embarrassingly fun. If you do see this movie, I’m sure you already know to wait until the end of the credits. There’s a little F&F morsel for y’all. Can’t wait for the Fast Six
