Fast & Furious 6 Reviews

Just a small recommendation for speed flick buffs: beg, borrow or steal DVDS of Howard Hawks’s Red Line 7000 (1965)and John Frankheimer’s Grand Prix (1965) . The Fast and Furious series pale by comparison to them, despite the new millennium’s technical haberdashery.

There’s lunacy. And there’s energy. And while this is an utterly stupid film that seems almost proud of being unmemorable, it mostly amuses. Oh, and Gina Carano is awesome.

The film is completely ridiculous, its outcomes impossible, but it leaves us looking forward to the next edition, with its promise of another villain in its post-credits scene.

The sixth entry in the blockbuster franchise which first vroomed across the multiplexes in 2001 focuses squarely on what the gearheads want: tyre-screeching mayhem, death-defying heroics and camera-caressing femmes.

The girl-on-girl fight scenes are actually more kick-ass than the ones with the guys. The new characters impress. That being said, this one's purely for fans of the franchise and action junkies alike.

There is a proportionality between the size of Vin Diesel's biceps and the number of car chases in Fast & Furious 6. As the films gets older, the characters get bulkier and the story line thinner

7

If Fast & Furious 6 clicks, it is because the film manages to make you believe the first five of the series never existed. This sequel is driven by a passion to regale normally spotted in first films of any series.

You will enjoy watching it with friends whom you don't really want to meet everyday. If you want to see a film which will intellectually stimulate you and start a dinner conversation, this isn't it... high thrills and roadside frills.... you betcha!

Where are these cars speeding to? Where are they in relation to each other? What`s their goal during the chase, apart from just creating some din? The climax has a major twist that works in making the next sequel and don`t miss the trailer of ‘Fast & Furious 7’ after the end credits.

    MY REVIEW: The Sixth Gear of Action and Fun!!

    Furious 6. Made on a story that can be detailed in single line "Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries." Furious 6 is a mad enjoyable watch or some sort of guilty pleasure. Lack of a thrilling storyline is covered by grand canvas, ruthless action, races and chases, peppy background score, man on man fights, woman on woman fights, cars against tanks and even planes. Some action scenes go over the top and you need to avoid applying logic every now and then to enjoy the sequences. All actors play their part OK and their conversations are mostly laced with delicious one liners. So, Furious 6 delivers what it promises, fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride.
