FAST FIVE ( ALTERNATIVELY KNOWN AS FAST AND FURIOUS FIVE/ FAST AND FURIOUS FIVE: RIO HEIST)
more action less car reference and culture this time around.This fifth movie of this car reeling movie, brings back the usual speedsters mainly, Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Vin Diesel), Mia Toretto ( Jordana Brewster) and Brian O' Conner ( Paul Walker). The movie starts with Dom being sentence to 25 years to prison without early parole. On the way to prison, in the bus, Brian, Mia and a friend of Dom decided to lead an assault on the bus and that cause the bus to crash, freeing Dom. In escaping the authorities, Brian and Mia decides to flee to Rio de Jeneiro, while waiting for Dom there.
One thing led to another, Dom, Brian and the rest of the team decides to steal $100 million dollar from Brazil's most notorious criminal king pin, Hernan Reyes ( Joaquim de Almeida). So literally everything goes havoc from then on.
What I like about this movie is that I swerves from the normal formula this movie offers which is cars and racing. The big difference was the big run away scene at downtown Rio and the brawl between Vin Diesel and the Dwayne Johnson. That for me is a breath of fresh air, as far as movie franchises go. Overall, its a fun movie and good precursor to upcoming summer blockbuster movies. rating: 7.5/10
The movie is taken from the comic book with the same name from Marvel Comics. I don't really know much about Thor and the comics, except for the cape and shield and that big hammer. All, I know, it was a fun movie, girls would definately love it( ahemm!!!) and comic fans will enjoy it too. I know I did. This movie has a simple premise to it and it was not as complicated as other superhero comic movies adaption. I think overall this movie has the potential to develop into something more substantial. I say this is not a bad movie nor and excellent movie to watch. Another precursor to upcoming summer blockbuster movies to come. rating: 7/10
