I realized only around seven months later that I had never written a review for Fast & Furious 6.
To add to that, I only realized seven months later that I had even seen Fast & Furious 6… So here we go.
If you couldn't already decrypt the passage above, let me just make this clear: Fast & Furious 6 is one of the most forgettable films I have ever seen.
On my parallel website, where I post all of my reviews, I had completely forgotten to add my review of this film, because I had forgotten to even write one.
I like Justin Lin and his directorial style, but I think he should step down from directing this deadbeat series for a while, because not even bringing a character back to life from the last film has given the franchise a mere hint of redemption. And that really bothers me. Who …

"Ride or die remember?" More believable action than 5, more emotional than the rest and the best bad guy for the franchise. The production of Fast & Furious goes to London. Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) reunites with his team (Brian, Tej, Han, Gisele, Hobbs and Riley) and shows to Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) a picture of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), which he believes is alive. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs Dwayne Johnson) and his partner Elena (Elsa Pataky) asks Dominic and his team to get British Special Forces soldier Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).
The risks here were much higher, Brian maybe locked-up for life, Letty shooting Dom while he tries to regain her memory of the past and the antagonists high-tech equipment with a capable team to rival Dom's. Screenplay …

The basic storyline is that Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is tracking an elite group of lethal mercenaries led by a ruthless ex-mercenary by the name of Shaw (played very well by Luke Evans), across 12 countries trying to foil their master plan. Hobbs tries to recruit Dom (Vin Diesel ) and his team to take them down.
Hobbs' leverage is a photo of Dom's old flame Letty ((Michelle Rodriguez who was presumed dead) which he hands to Dom. Dom finds out that Letty is with the group and feels a desperate urge to find her and bring her back to the family and so the team accepts the offer.
The car chases, gunshots and body fights are spectacular and one of the main attractions in the movie. The pace never made me bored in spite of its more-than-two-hour-duration and Roman Pearce played by …

The “Fast” franchise is seriously going to miss Justin Lin. He, in the span of four movies, has transformed a lame little series of movies about cars into a series of giant event blockbusters. Apparently “Fast 6” is Lin’s last entry; maybe next he’ll save the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or salvage The Transformers movies. Michael Bay certainly could use a few tips from this guy.
Fast 6 works in much the same way that that Fast 5 did. The movie never takes itself too seriously, but still does a good job making its characters likable and establishing they’re motivations and personalities. It knows how to stage an Acton sequence, and most importantly, when to end it. Sure the physics defy all logic, but that’s exactly what makes it so much fun.
Luke Evans …

Leave your brain at the door. This movie is loud, fast paced and will leave you at the edge of your seat most of the time. It incorporates witty humour, although sometimes overdone. Do not expect an amazing story, or one that has a logic flow to it. The story is just enough to glue all the action scenes together. Now considering this is a car movie, it is quite forgivable for the most part, but other times the lack of a good script just shines through too much.
Fast and Furious 6 brought back the old gang from fast 5, although Don Omar and his friend were not present. At the very end of the movie wait to see the after credit scene... it's definitely a nice surprise.
Overall, great effects with ok story. Action galore, like eating a heart attack burger and a large fries.... you …

The continuous gain of ridiculous stunts is what makes this series better with each new entry. I can see why many people have total enjoyment for them, as I did enjoy this and Part 5. I was willing to give 'Fast 6' even more of a pardon for it's overall lame writing and bloated script full of soap-opera moments and sub-par acting. But inconveniences occurred. Most notably was the fact that almost all of the best moments, including the 'big finale', were shown in the trailer (which I had previously seen at least ten times). And the dialogue scenes being the weakest part of the franchise took up too much of the running time, almost slowing the movie to a halt a couple of times. Despite these shortcomings, I still enjoyed the riveting and creatively ludicrous action. I came very …

Here's how I imagine the script-writing for Fast 6 went: (Picture that guy in the AT&T commercials chatting with a group of Red Bull-induced teenagers): So what would you like to see in the new movie? A tank chase. Nice. A plane driving out of a cargo plane trying to take off from the world's longest runway. Sounds good. A bullet-proof car that is also super-fast and flips cars. Awesome. A mid-air rescue that would require the most perfect timing and still end in grave injury but the heroes walk away unscathed. Excellent.
In fact, the whole film seems to be trying to one-up itself in terms of how ridiculously over-the-top it can become. However, it is also supremely entertaining - provided you don't try to analyze anything about it and just sit back and enjoy the ride. In fact, I …

Fast & Furious 6 (2013) PG-13 Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has decided that, if you can’t beat them, join them, so he enlists Dominic (Vin Diesel), Walker (Brian O’Conner), and the rest of the team to help him catch criminals who are led by a former Special Ops man named, Owen Shaw(Luke Evans). This is a fun, noisy film where the director, Justin Lin, has decided to turn each of the characters into superheroes who are able to fly 30 feet, grab onto another person and drop onto a moving car and not get hurt. There is an incredible fight sequence between Gina Carano, a former MMA fighter, and Michelle Rodriquez, who learned to fight for the film, Girlfight (2000), that is worth the price of admission. The film does slow down quite a bit when the gang, especially Vin Diesel, …

Watched this the other day and wasnt a bad film really. Does make you realise in the end that maybe Tokyo drift actually happens after the fast and furious storylines.
All the cast are back with a surprise appearance from Letty who apparently didnt die and works for the baddies.
Great appearance from Dwayne 'the rock' Johnson who always likes to kick butt!!
The only annoying part of the whole fast and furious franchise is when ex cop paul walker(Brian) and his team of ex cons are asked to carry out the assignment his only ever request seems to be that they get a full pardon from all the crimes that they have done in the past. How many times has this been??? Im sure by now all the assignments they have carried out they should all be normal model citizens.
Overall a great film with …
