Fast and the Furious 5: Rio Heist

We can’t wait to catch Fast and the Furious 5: Rio Heist (aka Fast Five), coming out this week. A sequel to the series with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster and the rest of the cast would have been 3 reasons enough, but they decided they needed to add a fourth. Han Lue (Sung Kang), the guy who taught the hero in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, how to drive. He’s back! (This happened before Tokyo Drift)

But because it’s the fifth installment, they decided to add a fifth reason to make the movie the most anticipated yet: Dwayne Johnson. The Rock. Who doesn’t love The Rock? Don’t lie. I do. You do. The millions (and millions!) of The Rock’s fans do.

Don’t forget to catch it, it opens this week. Here’s a reminder of what you will miss if you forget. Note: The trailer literally left me hanging.


  1. The fact that the fifth part of a franchise is better than the four previous movies is something very uncommon, even if it might be unfair to compare Fast Five to its predecessors, simply because this new film changes the formula pretty much, by being a bit away from the car races in order to become into a “heist movie”. But there is nothing to worry about; in spite of change of the focus, the story conserves the automotive fetish and the challenging attitude from the heroes we know. In my humble opinion, the result was a satisfactory transition which does not stop at anything in order to provide a very entertaining time…even though nobody can consider it intelligent, logical or realistic.

    1. Great thoughts on the film! And I agree with the above statement as well. I’m not that big of a fan of cars and street racing to begin, but the heist angle resonated more with me. This, I feel, opens the franchise to a wider market and consequently gives new fuel to possible sequels. I will say this though, Fast 5 offers one of the craziest highway stunts I’ve seen since Matrix Reloaded. That being said, I’m excited to see people parody this chase sequence. 🙂

    2. Makes sense, good observations! The fact that they brought together the cool heroes from previous installments and came up with something different to tie them up together was pretty cool.

      Personally I like how some loose ends were tied, like how Han said Dom was an old friend.
