Fast & Furious 6 (Trailer #1) Review

Wow that actually looks pretty damn good. This film series has been a weird one to watch, what with it starting okay and then got steadily worse, started picking up again and now this is looking to be better than the rest. I really like that they seem to have been able to bring most of the cast back and with fun new extra that should prove entertaining. What’s interesting to me is how this film is more a different film compared to the rest. It feels more like a great heist film than the street racing of the first installment. I generally don’t care much about cars but friends who do say they have a great selection and some impressive looking stunts. You can clearly see a good mix of both practical and CGI effects used in this film. The fights, the crashes, THE TANK! All look good to me and I am actually pretty excited to see it which I haven’t for any of the others so my fingers are crossed. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on the latest trailer so please comment.

Fast & Furious 6 - Banner

Score: A


After the events of Fast Five, professional criminal Dominic Toretto and his crew are wealthy, but their criminal records prevent them from returning to their home country. Following his attempts to apprehend them, Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs offers the crew a deal; he will give them all full pardons for their crimes if they help him take down a lethally skilled mercenary organization led by a criminal mastermind and his ruthless second-in-command, Dominic’s thought-dead lover Letty Ortiz.

Top 5 Scenes

5. Now That’s a Bad Guy

Fast & Furious 6 - Now That's a Bad Guy

Now this is a real good turn for this franchise, we have a British villain!!! You can’t beat a good British villain, we play them so well. The man in the shadows there is Owen Shaw played by the welsh actor Luke Evans. Sadly he doesn’t have a welsh accent in the film because he studied acting in London. I do like that shot though, you can see a dark but also strategic side to his character and I am sure he will be a great villain.

4. Michelle Rodriguez vs. Gina Carano

Fast & Furious 6 - Michelle Rodriguez vs Gina Carano

This is going to be the next level of cat fights Meow! These two are both good at strong female characters and have shown some skills in the area of fighting. Obviously Carano would win in real life being an actual fighter but still the movie fight should still be some rip roaring fun.

3. The Rock Take Down

Fast & Furious 6 - The Rock Take Down

This actually needs to be explained. That is Vin Diesel lifting a man on his shoulders and then running to Dwayne Johnson who then jumps into the air to punch him in the face. That is just so cool I can’t even write something other than a description. That guys face is going to be messed up, and 20 feet away from his corpse.

2. Tanks, They Have TANKS!!!

Fast & Furious 6 - Tanks They Got TANKS!

This is going to be a great scene in the film with some fantastic visuals with tank going around blowing shit up. Now is it just me or there a lot more people dying in this film than the others, because there are people in those cars being crushed alive. Crushing cars, blowing up bridges I must say I am looking forward to this film.

1. That is a Car Flying out of a Plane

Fast & Furious 6 - Car Jumping Out of a Plane

This film has shown some fantastic stunts but that is just wow. They could have just finished with the plane going down but then the car just flies out the front in a blaze of fire and glory, the stunt guy either loved it or shit himself. I’d do both in that situation, to the stunt men who make this stuff possible.

    can’t wait. this one is going to be a blast to watch. the franchise has really turned around.

    thanks for pausing that scene with Vin Diesel and The Rock tag teaming! I was wondering about that scene! wow!


  2. ruth says :

    Never been interested in this franchise to be honest, and I actually like cars! 😀


  3. atothewr says :

    This looks to be the best of them all and after 5 I wasn’t sure they could top themselves. When you bring in tanks you are really bringing it. How is this still PG-13?


  4. mistylayne says :

    So am I going to be shunned for say Fuck Fast & Furious? Because that is my feeling on it. ;-p


  5. jmount43 says :

    The Rock takedown is a variation of the Doomsday Device that was created by the Road Warriors, Hawk and Animal. One would lift their opponent onto their shoulders and the other would dive off the top rope and deliver one hell of a clothesline to the poor sap.


  6. Fogs' Movie Reviews says :

    LOL. Damn straight it’s an A. A for Awesome! LOL

    There’s some awesome shit going on in there.


  7. markmc2012 says :

    Never seen one of these movies. Figured if I wanted to see fake car chases I’d just play a video game and it would be more fun…and not take as long.


  8. Erik says :

    According to IMDB they even went to Glasgow!


  9. Erik says :

    I didn’t know that! 🙂 Ohh well…maybe next time. 🙂


  10. sydneyaaliyah says :

    I loved the first one and then missed the second one and made the mistake of watching Tokyo Drift and gave up on the series until I watched 5 on airplane. Went back to see 2 and 4 and now pretty excited about 6. And having Michelle Rodriguiz back should be fun.


  11. Erik says :

    I can hardly wait to see this! It looks awesome. Racing at Piccadilly Circus?? WTF!!! 🙂
