It was dumb and not as good as the last one but still a lot of fun. The ending got everyone talking.

I can't believe the money this franchise rakes in.

New movie released in the most unlikely action franchise ever. How many action sequences can they have that defy the laws of physics and gravity without turning it into a fantasy? I admit these movies have been a guilty pleasure of mine over the years, but Fast Five was actually quite good. This will be the final Fast movie directed by Justin Lin, who single handily brought this franchise back from the brink of death. I will miss him, the man knows how to shoot great action scenes!

Early reviews have been positive
My girlfriend and I are looking foward o seeing the movie.

Los Bandoleros: I skipped Tokyo Drift because I wanted to watch everything in chronological order and went straight for this 20-minute short instead. It was directed by Vin Diesel and serves as a prelude to Fast & Furious. It was a bit jarring to see this because it brings us back to characters who appeared in the first film, but not the second, namely Vin Diesel's and Michelle Rodriguez' characters. It was also shot with an artsy independent film feel and a lot of the dialog was in spanish with english subtitles. It wasn't great, but I loved Diesel's effort.
I had never heard of this before, just watched it, and what an interesting piece. Actually has me imagining a whole Fast and Furious with that vibe.

I am really looking forward to seeing this. This series has been a guilty pleasure for me as well. I'm glad to see that most people who have seen it seemed to have enjoyed it.

I think if you've enjoyed the series so far you'll like this. Suspension of disbelief is required at parts (per usual) but it delivers on the charm and mayhem.

Anyone notice how many badass women this franchise has? Trek could learn a thing or two!

My only problem was that the speeds of the cars were inconsistent with some earlier films. I suspect that J.J. Abrams was responsible.

- That was one hell of a long runway. Someone calculated it to be about 16 miles or 26km long.

- This movie has already made more money than Star Trek Into Darkness.

As of May 26th…
Furious 6: $275,528,000.
Star Trek Into Darkness: $248,927,000.

Source: Box Office Mojo

- I was expecting Eva Mendes to show up but she didn't and I didn't notice. As to why she wasn't there, Justin Lin said that he couldn't work her in.

- And finally, a quick question… Any reason why O'Conner drives cars with the steering wheel on the right?

Well, you'd expect that.

The crowd was a lot of fun on Saturday - a lot younger and louder than at Trek movies.

Yeah, the crowd I saw Fast and Furious with was young, energetic, and really into the movie. The first time I saw Into Darkness was with a terrible crowd and the second time was with a much older crowd. That's a problem.

The only reason I can think of is that according to Dom's dialog the character is into the Japanese cars which dominated the original movie and not the Detroit Muscle cars brought in with Dom's father's Charger at the end and for the rest of the run.

Furious 6 meant nothing to me, I was wishing for The Furious 5 a few years back in homage to the pioneering Hip-Hop group. After seeing the credit sequence I wish they had already filmed the next installment like they did with Harry Potter or Lord Of The Rings. I what to see that more then the remaining films of this summer.

All told F&F has passed Olympus Has Fallen for my favorite action film of 2013 so far.

Brian prefers driving imports (which tend to have steering wheel on right) while Dom prefers American muscle cars. They joked about that a bit when Dom gave the toy black Charger car to his nephew.

Only the imports tend to come ready for the US market with the wheel on the left but a buff might seek out a model made for the home country. I can't remember Brian having one in the first film but he raced from the right hand side on his way to Miami, when Customs and the FBI caught him.
