Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

Director: Yipin Lin
Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Luke Evans, Michelle Rodriguez
Genre: Action

As if swanky cars weren’t enough, Fast and Furious now have ‘Tank’ rampaging the roads—and, you are in for one hell of a ride! 

Fast and Furious 6 (2013)
Yipin (Justin) Lin nails another F&F movie. The 6th installment doesn’t just pick the tempo where Fast 5 concluded; it gets bigger too, and straightaway—no lag on plot development or character insights as it is already all set. From scene one you have fast cars in action, trailblazing through some beautiful locales.  

F&F also provides what was amiss in Fast 5—a real villain of credibility in Shaw (Luke Evans), well supported by his sidekicks who match (even betters) Dom’s crew blow-by-blow, i.e., until the climax of course.

Action in the film, as it was supposed to, overshadows all other aspect of the film but comedy, overall acting, editing, camera work, special effects, etc. gel well in this in this high octane showdown.       

All in all, a perfect summer blockbuster for action buffs.  

If the sneak-peek of F&F is anything to go by then the F&F 7 is going to be even ‘massiver’—the newest addition (current tycoon of action films) to cast/franchise certainly indicates so!

What more. Being a huge fan of Diesel’s ‘Riddick’, I hope the success of F&F avails him enough riches to decently market/promote another potent, niche-focused, action/adventure franchise of his.

7.5/10
