With great action, a gleefully ridiculous story and entertaining characters, Fast & Furious 6 is as unapologetically dumb and awesome as one might expect.
12 years ago, the Fast & Furious franchise began, and for the first four entries critics were not pleased. I was among this crowd, for I found the mix of silly street racing shenanigans and crime thriller elements of those films to be tedious, boring and ridiculous. Then Fast Five happened, and suddenly the franchise became an entertaining, exciting and action-packed extravaganza of awesomeness. Universal Pictures and the creative team behind this series are hoping to replicate that success with the sixth installment, the film that directly precedes Tokyo Drift within the franchise’s timeline. In the end, does Fast & Furious 6 contain all of the elements that made its predecessor such a massive surprise?
