Film Review:- "Fast and Furious 6"
Review by Dasha Ibrajeva

FIRST of all, I'd like to say that this type of movies are shot for entertainment purposes only and does not set a goal to demonstrate the laws of physics! Thus, if you have decided to go to the cinema and watch it, don't be a nerd, turn your brain off, sit back and let the mayhem wash all over you. Actually, this was the way I did it, and believe me, it gave me great pleasure and satisfaction!

Few words about the plot...Since completing a successful heist, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and co are rich and fully enjoy their lives across the world. Or maybe not so "fully" - they still lacking the sense of freedom. Suddenly, appears Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), who asks the team of road-rage outlaws for help in tracking down a dangerous group, headed by a man named Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). In return, Hobbs promises immunity to the crew and a chance to reunite the entire family, as well as to find Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), beloved of Toretto, who believed to be dead.

Shooting Fast and Furious 6, the director, Justin Lin, decided to make an emphasis on the relationship between the main characters, and focused on the idea of a devoted family and close friendship:- "You don't turn your back on family, even when they do." Each member of the team shows us his or her soul. And, I find it pretty cool that the screenwriter decided to show us the movie from this angle, as this small detail reflects the reverse side of Fast and Furious. After all, no matter how bad road-rage outlaws and thugs they were; they are still humans. They are one family.

Of course, I am sure that many devoted fans of the sequel will make a comment that Fast and Furious is not anymore as it used to be. Franchise about the street racing instantly turned into a real blockbuster with robberies and crime in different countries. But isn't it what makes the movie more exciting and entertaining?

Yes, I agree that there were many inconsistencies in the movie and sometimes the relationship between the main characters simply did not make any sense - A lover with nobleness is ready to sacrifice her relationship with a man in favour of his ex-girlfriend who is miraculously resurrected. Another woman with a tiny baby is letting her husband go into the abyss of chaos and bullets. What is wrong with those women??? Or maybe I am the strange one? But even in general, it seems a bit strange that the "family" willingly and selflessly plunge in a scam for one person, and then after all troubles joyfully celebrate victory and allegedly forget that they lost another member of the same family ... but who cares when it's time to advertise Corona beer. Аnd what about Hobbs? The chief guardian of order, demonstrating "affiliate solidarity", calmly let the villain walk away? No way!  And the endless Spanish military airport runway had not been noticed probably only by the most devoted fan of Fast and Furious. But anyway, this is just a fly in the ointment. All the laws of physics and logic are sacrificed for the sake of entertainment, but who cares? Isnít that exactly what the franchise has always aimed to do? Letís face it that these films are not made for the intellectually elite. So if you are a honour of physics, you better leave what you know about the laws of gravity in the lobby.

Summing up, Fast and Furious 6 is all about breathtaking drive, crazy energy, high quality special effects and the best actors. It is a dream of anyone who appreciate high quality blockbusters and has opened up the door to the claim of the best action movie of the year so far.

Fast & Furious 6 the studio appears to have uncovered the secret to satisfying the action crowd, thus our rating is 4 out of 5 traffic lights!   Do you agree? Let us know by emailing us to today!
