Good movies just kept coming! Come to think of it, good is even an understatement. Excellent should be the word to describe the 2 movies I’ve recently seen. Both Thor and Fast Five were outstanding! I cannot believe that we would have 2 great movies showing back to back.
I was invited to attend the advanced screening of Fast Five last tuesday by PLDT myDSL. I was excited as 2 of my favorite actors are there. I actually never imagined Vin Diesel & Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson to be in the same movie!!!
I got the biggest surprise as it went way beyond my expectations! You see, Fast Five is already the 5th installment of the Fast & the Furious franchise. I never expected that they could actually make it better. In my opinion, Fast Five is the best among all the Fast & the Furious movies.
I seriously think that everyone should not get any spoilers because what made the movie amazing is the surprise factor. You really never know what’s coming next. Though some scenes were really not realistic, it wouldn’t matter. The non-stop action will really take all your attention. I never had a dull moment. NEVER (not even a single minute)!
Fast Five were able to reunite all your favorite Fast & the Furious stars namely Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon, Don Omar & some surprise stars 😛 As of this writing, it was concluded that Fast Five was the most successful in the franchise having broken box office records with highest grossing opening weekend in April in the U.S.
The movie follows Dom Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) & Brian O’Conner (played by Paul Walker) as they plan a heist to rob $100 million from a corrupt businessman Hernan Reyes (played by Joaquim de Almeida). At the same time, both are also being pursued by top DSS agent Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson). You have to watch Fast Five to know how the story goes. I assure you, you will be so happy that you decided to watch Fast Five. It’s THAT good.
Before I forget, do wait for the scene after the credits. You’ll LOVE the surprise!
My Rating for Fast Five: 5 out of 5 stars.
