Fast & Furious 6 (Movie Review)

Hi! Just came back from watching Fast & Furious 6 at the cinema courtesy of Nuffnang & United International Picture (UIP). It's somehow unbelievable how a movie related to cars and crimes can have sequel extension until the sixth movie. Not that it's bad but somehow I think if it's a movie made for car lovers then it would be great in a good way but it didn't last long after the third movie (Tokyo Drift). It's no longer about the cars but it certainly has diverted to somewhat big muscular guys trying to fight crimes by becoming the good guys.


Summary:
Since Dom and Brian’s Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty. The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

Some screenshots from the movie:











I like this classic European sport cars but there's one scene where Dominic actually teases how they prefer American muscle with bigger engines than these small little European sport cars.

My conclusion (with spoilers): 
Yes I like cars especially fast cars but the plot in this movie kinda repetitive since the fourth movie. Brian and Dominic team up together and find the bad guys, two black guys like to crack silly jokes and the only Asian guy acting cool all the time. I'm already sick with that and now the sixth movie, the same bloody thing with an additional of Dwayne Johnson as the protagonist reuniting the team. It felt like the earlier movie I watched, oh yeah G.I.Joe 2. No more surprises. All the best part has already been shown in the video trailer which I have included down below. The actions in this movie were highly exaggerated especially the part where the tank was dragging the small Mustang. How can a car like that becomes an anchor to a super armored hi-speed tank? Doesn't make any sense. Towards the end, it was the climax where Shaw (the bad guy) trying to escape on a plane. The runway perhaps was the longest ever in the world where the entire 15 minutes of the movie were wasted by some idiotic pilots who's trying to fly the plane. There's so many flaws I would like to mention here, like how Gisele died just from falling onto the runway - THE MOST RIDICULOUS WAY TO DIE. Anyway, if you don't want to be confused watching this movie, please watch The Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift first.

Keywords:
Bad CGI, lousy plots, cheesy jokes, more women and even more bullshit.


My rating: 2/5 stars
