RJG Rating- 85
Dom and his crew sre recruited by Hobb, to track down a criminal by the name of Owen Shah.
Starring- Vin Diesel,Paul Walker,Dwayne Rock Johnson,Luke Evans
Director- Justin Lin
The entire cast is brought back and that itself lends some magic into F6.Dwayne Rock continues to be a fantastic action superstar.Vin Diesel is amazing as well.Michelle Rodriguez was good.Gina Carano excelled in the action sequences.Paul Walker and the rest of the cast were good.Luke Evans as Shah was not a kickass villain, but compared to past villains of the franchise ,he is relatively better.
The Fast & furious movies arent the type in which you can expect mindblowing stories.For an action movie ,F6 had a decent story although its a bit thin.Most of the plot points were just excuses to deliver action scenes.Comparatively the story isnt as tight as Fast 5 or the first F&F ,but its still an engaging ride.The middle portion is loose and a bit of plothole is formed once a twist is revealed towards the end.Theres a nice blend between the comedy and drama as well.The humour manages to keep the audience from getting buzzed out from the action and the drama.
Direction by Justin Lin was great.He found the formula for this franchise with Fast Five ,and for F6 he maximizes them to the point that they are just on the edge of being over the top.The pacing is fast but still there were some scenes that could have been cut out due to its lack of importance.But the movie is absolute fun for the fans of the series.
Action scenes were just amazing.From start to finish its back to back action ,and they did save the best for the last! The plane sequence is bound to leave you amazed.The fight scenes were powerful and its a treat to watch the Rock battle it out! The comedy was surprisingly good throughout the movie.On the downside ,killing off characters is turning into a bit of a cliche ,and some romantic dialogues could have been shortened.
Overall ,Furious 6 is another excellent addition to the F&F series.A must watch for fans and action junkies!
