Fast Five starts the summer of FUN! (I hope…)

   

I will admit that I enjoy the Fast and the Furious franchise.  Hot guys?  Driving hot cars? Hello.  I appreciate that it is does not try to be anything more than mindless entertainment and as I have stated before, sometimes you want pure escapism.  Fast Five delivers that in spades!  So, if you can put away your reality check meter…sit back–buckle up and enjoy the ride!  

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker have a comfortable chemistry and I am glad neither one has other movies to interfere with their fast and furious-ness!  The supporting cast of familiar faces from the franchise only help amplify the fun factor and I thought Dwayne Johnson was a great addition (even if he is a bit stiff).   I was digging the new setting in Rio de Janeiro and the heist was cool, but, the main focus are the cars and the action and that is where Fast Five brings the goods!  More crazy stunt driving and fist fights…sweet!

If you enjoy this, you must stick around after the credits–it will set you up for Fast Six!  And why not?  These movies are  financially successful because people like to be mindlessly entertained–obviously.

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
