Yesterday’s viewing of ‘Fast and Furious 5’ was exactly what I expected of the high-octane franchise. What I didn’t expect however was returning home to search for reviews of this movie and to find that I had infact watched Fast and Furious 6 … not 5.
Too many Fast and Furiouseseseses.
Here are some things to avoid thinking about when watching Fast and Furious 6:
– Pedestrians – where are they?
– the physics of 3 cars stopping a cargo aeroplane.
– And where is Dwayne (The Rock) Johnsons neck?
Our main characters have somewhat moved on from the first movie and are now living in mansions, flying on private jets and giving birth to their babies in a serene Spanish convent (not kidding). Fans of the franchise will still love this and the cinema yesterday was packed. People laughed, cheered and even clapped at the end.
I clapped too, but mainly because I was genuinely happy it was all over.
