Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. Newly joined by Dwayne Johnson, they take the series that hooked the world on adrenaline and amp up the action and spectacle on a global scale.
In Fast Five, former cop Brian O’Conner (Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) in a very unfamiliar place: the opposite side of the law in exotic Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Elsa Pataky joins Johnson and returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar in an ultimate high-stakes heist.

Fast and Furious 5 is the best so far in the series and all the old characters have returned. After the end credits I couldn't wait for the next one!
Fast and Furious 5 is a good film. I really enjoyed watching it, but could say this film is missing something compared to the previous films in the saga.
An excellent DVD, really enjoyed it. Delivery from Zavvi was quick, and the price very good.
This is all the other fast and furious movies combined with 10 times more action, funny one liners from Tyrese and a great edition to the cast 'The Rock'. The action started 1 minute into the movie and it got better and better as the movie continued. The director got a little inspiration from 'Oceans Eleven' except this film isn't as slick and the characters are not as smart. I really enjoyed it and i think if you felt let down by one of the other fast and furious movies, this one makes up for it. It is a high octane pop corn fun movie, perfect to watch on a friday night.
Fantastic as are most of the other films.This one ends with a twist so roll on the next one. A very good price.Well done ZAVVI.COM
I absolutely love the Fast and the Furious films and this had to be the best out of them all. It was just none stop action from the start. Instead of the film being about the neon light and graphics on the cars this was just about the pure power of the cars.
It’s something of a vintage rarity that any franchise splutters towards a fourth sequel; a fate usually reserved for a once great horror icon or a series settling for the direct-to-dvd mileage. Well the series that dropped the definitive article and managed something of a Pimp My Ride overhaul, is back, dragging familiar faces from throughout the petrol sniffingly stupid series, for an Italian Job set in Rio. Setting the scene using a “previously on The Fast and The Furious” montage, Five picks up directly after Dom Toretto (Diesel) has been busted from the pen. Establishing HQ in the Rio favelas, he is joined by former FBI nemesis Brian O’ Connor (Walker) and his fugitive sister, Mia (Brewster) as they plot “one final job” before fleeing to an extradition free country. Easier said than done when The Rock can smell what you’re cooking. Johnson joins the franchise as hard nosed Federal Agent Hobbs, who is intent on returning the joyriding trio to the States. And that’s all you’re getting in terms in terms of plot. Anyone that understandably nodded off during parts 1-4 will need a compendium to catch up. This could very well turn out to be the comedy of the year, because intentionally or not, nearly every line of the daytime soap opera dialogue results in a laugh. At times it’s reminiscent of The Other Guys in the straight faced delivery of lines such as “even God couldn’t break into this prison”, although to be fair, 2 Fast’s Tyrese Gibson does get a few corking one-liners that hit home. It’s also worth noting that Five brings together two brutes, who were originally intended to take up the action mantle left by Schwarzenegger, in which both have subsequently fumbled. Of the two, Dwayne Johnson appears to best embrace this live-action cartoon, gurning and overacting to pantomime effect like a pumped up version of Tommy Lee-Jones from The Fugitive. Diesel continues to struggle; gruff and monosyllabic, the charisma of Pitch Black now a distant memory. But the cars are truly the stars, and even though the action only really bookends the Ocean’s Eleven style plotting, when it does occur it’s brilliantly over the top. It’s safe to say that the street slalom finale is one of the most ridiculous action set-pieces of wanton destruction (some of it the morally reprehensible kind, with its disregard for consequence) outside of a Road Runner cartoon. Anyone strapping themselves in for this fifth lap knows what to expect; the kind of movie in which the protagonists steal police cars in order to be inconspicuous, only to race then down the high street with Tyrese wise-cracking (again) over the tannoy. Anyone else is going to have a bumpy ride with this overlong, dumb, marginally sexist, sometimes enjoyable rubbish. Anyhow... growls all were in theatresss....
The best Fast and Furious film yet in my mind - car chases, lots of automatic gunfire, a spectacular plot and (most importantly) lots of Gal Gadot and Jordana Brewster!!!
I think this is the best fast and the furious film, there was action all the way through it and more great acting,would definately recommend.
