Skewed and Reviewed look at the lastest in the fast and Furious series and cited the larger than life characters and action as to the main reasons why they call Fast 5 the best in the series to date.
I am also so glad they did not do the lame post filming 3D conversion like they had planned. It is bad enough that Thor,Captain America, and Green Lantern were done this way. Supposedly Transformers and Pirates were shot in 3D.
I've been reading and hearing some positive things about this film. Your review definitely comforts my optimism. Nicely done.
Thank you. I think the biggest plus I can say for the film is that I took my wife, and she had not seen any since the first one and she loved this one.
I'm somewhat interested in seeing this. Looks like good old mindless entertainment. Probably will wait for the Netflix though.
I'm of the same mind I think. Definitely won't check it out in theaters, but will watch it at some point cause I've seen all the others (actually liked the first one) and I've heard good things about this one. It seems more likely that I'll wait for Netflix. Then again, I do own all the others so I might end up buying this just to complete the set.
The stunts were well done and they kept down the CGI. I love CGI bt there is something great about stunts that were done in real time with real risk factors.
It was one of the better movies I've seen this year, which sadly doesn't mean too much. But, it was your typical action adventure flick with cars. Make sure you stay through the first part of the credits, there's a small part that leads into a possible next movie. Side note: Anyone else feel that the director loved to do fly-overs of the different areas (favelas, downtown capital building, redeemer statue, etc.) way too much and multiple times? The movie was about 2 hours, could have cut out at least 15 minutes just removing the unnecessary fly-overs, IMHO.
This movie was a blatant rip-off of The Italian Job and Ocean's Eleven. It was more action packed than those but its plot (setting was fine) and acting was many times worse.
I'll still probably go see it just because I love action flicks but I see what your saying.
