I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Get the Fifth Gear.
Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom.
A beautiful, inspiring poem of a film. Some say it is not as good as CITIZEN KANE. To that I say CITIZEN KANE does not feature the word "funderwear."
Part 5 of One Last Ride
"The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now."
I find it so incredibly difficult to believe that Fast Five was released almost four years ago. I still remember the day vividly: it was a Friday, my group of friends and I had just gotten out of school for the weekend, and we had been planning on seeing Fast Five for weeks, it seemed.
We walked the two mile distance from our high school to the local theater, stopping halfway to buy some snacks (that we hid in our backpacks once we got to the theater) from a local Dollar…
just when it looked like the Fast franchise was over – the grim and morose-filled Fast & Furious nose-diving almost all of the charm lin promised with Tokyo Drift – Fast Five came along, turning the earnestness + charisma up to eleven and choosing to delve even deeper into the melodramatic, mythological rabbit hole of a series that’s existence is still bewildering to this very day.
where there was once a series of underground racing/crime films that concentrated too much on melodrama and dated coolness with little-to-no self-awareness, occasionally veering into the vehicle-based lunacy we all loved, Fast Five was a total reinvigoration - establishing the Fast movies as this weirdly superb action-franchise hybrid. appropriating the globetrotting pleasures of Mission Impossible,…
On the pleasures of watching thugs vicariously destroying things. The best hang-out heist film of the decade. It is overlong, but so shameless in its embracing of its more absurd qualities that never matters. The film is so delighted at itself, you kind have to go along with it. Stuff gets broken with abandon that puts even 48 Hours Part 2 to shame. Its world ia fully corrupt, so identity is in constant flux and everyone can be brought back and every alliance is ready to be realigned. The Rock class up anything. As usual when he is around, stunt coordinator Spiros Rozatos is the true MVP.
As unapologetically cheesy and joyously entertaining as the last time I watched it. I still can't believe the fifth instalment in a poor franchise could turn out as good as this.
The Fast & The Furious franchise is one that seems set to run and run despite the untimely death of star Paul Walker. With film number seven arriving in cinemas this week and more films planned, it seems that the change in theme that moved the series away from the street-racing scenarios into full-on action territory was a wise move. I haven't really seen too many of these, but this one is pretty entertaining.
This series certainly likes to traverse the globe. The film opens with Dom on his way to prison before a daring escape leads them South. This time it's Brazil and Rio in particular as the playground for the mayhem as Dom and Brian get drawn into a…
Overtly stupid, but also uniquely pure in its chaotic stupidity
honestly the best action movie ever. fight me
Kann man einfach nicht ernst nehmen. Ein bisschen ordentliche Action, aber ansonsten. Was so coole Sprüche sein sollen, ist alles so öde. Die Charaktere sind alle nur ein Witz. Autorennen sind so albern.
It may sound strange to call Fast Five a masterpiece, but on paper, it definitely belongs in the conversation. It accomplishes everything it needs to and more, and is a thrill from start to finish.
Watching this for the first time in a while--the extended edition. I don't know what's new or not, actually. But I forgot how much fun this movie is. Not is it just a fun action, but it's a hell of a heist movie.
I checked out this movie because of all the hype around Fast and Furious 7 and was surprised at just how fun it was. Yes, it's movie best enjoyed if you turn your brains off, with several logic holes that were easily picked out especially when you watched the CinemaSins video beforehand, but it's fun and Justin Lin manages to make it enjoyable enough to be very entertaining. The Rock makes a worthy opponent for Walker and Diesel and it's great to see him hunting these two with the tension always high, even if that safe scene at the end of the film is a little too OTT.
Toda saga llega a un momento en que, o bien se repite a si misma, o bien se reinventa de alguna manera. Creo que la solución encontrada por el productor es buenísima: "darle mas farlopa al guionista". Si, F&F meets Misión Imposible y, ¿sabes qué? es diver. Dos horas de acción trepidante que te van arrancando un "venga ya" tras otro llenas de escenas palomiteras a mas no poder. Además reúne a toda la banda, el Vin, el Rubio, la hermana del Vin, la Wonder Woman, aquel tío que salía de fondo en la tercera peli... lo cual es un detalle para el seguidor de la saga añadiendo personajes nuevos interpretados por The Rock (ningún héroe de acción debería llamarse Dwayne) o la Pataky que hasta actua bie... NO!!, eso no, que me estoy dejando llevar.
Bien, bien, aun me alucina que me guste la serie.
Wow, these guys sure do kill a lot of people. It might be easy to miss this, because our heroes don't seem to really notice. It's weird that they're all so blasé about the taking of human lives. Maybe they're supposed to be sociopaths? But no, that's not a fair criticism, because it's obvious that this movie isn't set in the real world. The mode here is less realism and more "wish fulfillment fantasy", which makes all the casual neck-snapping and such ok. Aw crap wait no, that sounds even worse now.
To be fair, the above issues aren't unique to Fast Five. This is just the society we live in. Killin' ain't no thang. If anything, this movie is…
