I just watched Fast Five last night, my first movie in the cinema this year. Surprisingly it is above my expectation, as I thought it will be more or less the same quality as Fast and Furious 3.
Basically it is another typical commercial action movie, but it's no longer talk about racing. It's about the plot to get a big sum of money from a local Tycoon. So I think this is the special part, where I expect I would see some racing scenes in this movie.
Of course, Fast Five is a lot better than Fast & Furious 3. I quite like it but I think I would only watch it once. Apart from the commercial plot, there are some parts which totally not logic at all, just like the stealing of the safety box and carry/transport it using 2 vehicles.
Among the 3 actresses on the screen, I bet everyone would agree that Gal Gadot is the most killing one among all. Even though she doesn't appear much on the screen, but the scene where she getting the palm print from Reyes was impressive.
Here's my personal rating for Fast Five.
Story line: 7.5/10
Fast Five is definitely a worth to watch movie, regardless whether you watch the previous Fast & Furious series. Have a nice weekend, folks.
