Fast Five Review
Director Justin Lin is back with the movie Fast Five, which is the fifth entry in the series of The Fast and the Furious. His latest venture is an exceptional sequel, which is even better than the original film. The action scenes look highly unimaginable and far from reality, but they are really fun to watch.
The plot of Fast Five is a fantasy and does not resemble real life. It is a film about crass materialism, masculine sentimentality and extreme violence and these aspects have been exaggerated to the point of caricature. Relentless car chases, great setting and action sequences are the major attractions of the movie. In a way, Chris Morgan's goofy script and ridiculous action are disappointing aspects.
But these two aspects do not deter the viewers from enjoying the movie because it has no pretensions other than to be a perfect car-chase film. It is all about two guys who steal expensive cars for a living and are forced to do this in Brazil because of America's draconian anti-stealing policies.
