Fast Five

Fast Five ★★★★½


Vehicular poetry. Lin's staging captures motion as trials for a larger game, with smaller set-pieces rising in stature towards the granddaddy of all 'bank safe towed through downtown Rio' climaxes. Torretto's arm extending down to Hobb's beaten, perspiring body in a gesture of commonality and connection is Holy; initiated into the Family Church, he's been beckoned to serve and to do God's work.
