I never cared for the films growing up and the only one I actually didn't mind, was considered the worst of the series (2 Fast 2 Furious), but I sit here, writing my review in shock. Fast Five was great and I enjoyed it very much. Everything managed to flow so perfectly together which resulted in a great kick off to the summer movie season. Fast Five is a popcorn flick in so many ways and it must be experienced on the big screen."
