We’ve all heard about the new piece of The Fast & The Furious puzzle. Everyone (or the fans at least) got really excited about it. And yes, FINALLY, I was able to see it yesterday on big screen. *feeling proud. lol*
From the beginning of this movie series, the moment I’ve seen the very first one, it instantly became one of my personal favorites so yes, this explains the fascination I have with the series. I was personally hyped upon seeing the trailer way back months ago since the movie’s filled with my favorite, and yes, the original members of the F&F.
The movie was filmed at Brazil where the people have this sexy Spanish accent. (I wanna go there too and see that statue on top of the hill. :|) As usual, it was all about “business”; stealing cars, seizing some cruel man’s money and running away from the police. What I enjoy best in this series is how they plan their jobs, how they do their jobs and how the chase goes. In this 5th movie, it wasn’t just a hundred grand to seize, its a hundred million dollar fortune that we’re talking here so just imagine how in the world they did it. (Hint: The Vault)
Its not F&F if Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and Dominic “Dom” Toretto (Vin Diesel) ain’t there. And since I mentioned earlier that the original cast were there, Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), who happens to be pregnant in the movie (define hot momma), Vince (Matt Schulze) and Tej Parker (Ludacris) were also there. But, where’s the fun if Roman Pearce’s (Tyrese Gibson) big mouth’s nowhere to be found? So yes, he was there. We cracked into laughter when he said he was just “tan” while doing an undercover agent job. 😛 Since it’s the 5th movie, they’ve imported people from the previous ones and also added new cast members so as to add spice and intensity on the new film. Han Lue (Sung Kang), Gisele Harabo (Gal Gadot), Tego Leo(Tego Calderon), Rico Santos (Don Omar), Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida), Luke Hobbs(Dwayne Johnson), Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) and Zizi (Michael Irby).
Fast 5 may have had intense scenes, visual and audio sound effects that gave me a headache just right in the middle of the movie until its over but its so damn worth the Php 200 movie ticket in Greenbelt. And hey, once you’ve seen the credits of Fast 5, don’t leave your seats yet cos Justin Lin (director) and the rest of the crew just gave a spoiler and a teaser of Fast 6. Dwayne Johnson and Eva Mendes had a brief scene about another carnapping shiz that involves, nope, not Dom, not even Brian, but it is, however, Dom’s known-to-be dead girlfriend. Yes, it’s Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). So hold your horses, cos Letty’s coming back from the dead.
