Here comes yet another entry to the “Fast & Furious” film franchise!
The only reason why we look forward to every installment of “Fast & Furious” is because we can’t think of another film series that has gotten the “hot cars, hot guys” concept so well. Obviously, if it has survived this long! Explosions and insane vehicles aside, you can expect “Fast & Furious 6” or rather, “Fast 6” to reinvent the “hot cars, hot guys” saga.
So, Dominic “Dom” Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) and Brian O’Conner (played by Paul Walker) and their remaining crew of outlaws made their minds up to retire following the great big millions of dollars heist that they pulled off in “Fast 5”. At this point, Dom and Brian have both settled down in Spain whereas the rest are off gallivanting halfway across the globe.
Just as they’re getting comfortable, agent Luke Hobbs (played by “The Rock” aka Dwayne Johnson) seeks them out to assist in hunting down a terrorist. It sounds like any other crime-fight until Hobbs lets them in on a little discovery – Letty (played by Michelle Rodriguez) is alive. Not only is she alive, she’s also working for the terrorist, Owen Shaw (played by Luke Evans).
She also has no recollection whatsoever of her past.
This is where the reference to the past “Fast & Furious” film comes in. Letty was believed to have been killed during the fourth installment of the “Fast & Furious” film series. For years, we (and the “Fast & Furious” crew, of course) were made to believe that until “Fast 6”. Mind-blowing!
And the crew (played by Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang, and Gal Gadot), well, they’ve always been all about “family” to begin with so therein lies their greatest challenge – to hunt down the terrorist and to bring Letty back all at the same time without anyone dying.
Watch the trailer here:
Oh, before we forget, you might want to not blink when you come across the “by default” car chase sequences. We say “by default” because a “Fast & Furious” film would be nothing without them. The ones we especially loved was the car chase through London involving both Dom and Letty, the freeway chase involving a military tank, and the final sequence that involves a cargo plane preparing for takeoff.
Hold on to your seats and try to remember to exhale because “Fast 6” is going to knock the wind out of you!
Catch “Fast 6” when it’s released in a cinema near you on 26th May 2013.
