The best of the series, which isn't saying much. A lot of the movie goes like this "we need to get i to the safe." "Well I just happen to know a guy." Very much like Oceans 11.

This movie tried to be more like Ocean's Eleven than Fast and the Furious. There was one point when there was about to be a drag race for a pink slip, and it just cut to the scene of them driving the car into the garage after winning it. Are you kidding me?...oh and The Rock needs to stop doing movies, he's a terrible actor.

You can see the "F&F" franchise as a car. In the first movie it is running good. Then the fuel begins to be consumed(2F2F) and it starts to vanish(F&FTD). So what do you do when you have no more fuel? You go refill it! (F&F4) and then the car starts running again.
I think after the third movie we all were sick of these street races, to be honest: that franchise was dead. The fourth part gave some more "power", Vin Diesel back, but still there was no entertainment here. Then someone had this brilliant idea to turn "Fast and Furious" cars into a "Fast and Furious" heist. Perfect!
This movie gave F&F new power. A new bad guy: The Rock. Who is chasing the crew not only with street races, but normal, as a cop.
Of course there were a lot of car´stunts in this movie, but the cars were …

It is very rare that a movie is saved by a single sequence, but Fast Five would only be a tolerable action movie if it weren’t for the safe scenes.
The movie is a fairly cliché heist movie. That is necessarily a bad thing, but unlike other cliché heist flicks like Oceans Eleven the movie doesn’t do much in the way of character and style to set it’s self apart from the rest. It doesn’t help that the acting is mediocre as well, and that The Rock looks like he was waxed along with the fancy cars before each scene.
The action sequences are really what put this movie above others. They are directed expertly in a way which creates tension and excitement. They also are able to come up with some entertainingly over the top action sequences to match.
Sadly I wasn’t …

I truly loved this film.the only problem i had with it was that it was really slow and a little bit too long,but I can deal with it.cause this movie proved to me that it's not just mindless drag racing.this film deals with the characters and also deals with the emotions they are going through in powerful ways,now that's never seen in the other fast and the furious films.I truly loved this films.it was a heist and I thought it was a a cever one at that.all these characters feel real and loveable.director Justin Lin does it again,bringing us yet another sequel to the amazing series.I would recommend this one,if you didn't like any of the others,you will have to love this one,it doesn't even feel like it's apart of the series,it feels like it's apart of it's own perfect hiest film.Vin …
