FAST FIVE (2011)

TMG Scale 7.0
Starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Ludacris, Joaquim de Almeida (you will recognize him).

This film is just pure smash up car fun. Big surprise since its four predecessors were the same (The Fast and the Furious (2001); Fast 2 Furious (2003); The Fast and the Furious:Tokyo Drift (2006);and Fast & Furious (2009).  Curious enough, Faster (2010) is not part of this series despite also starring Dwayne Johnson.   Vin Diesel was in all but Fast 2 Furious in 2003. Like all these films, Fast Five has no socially redeeming value.  It has no real value in any meaningful manner.  It is all Hollywood action, thrills, spills, explosions, guns and Rio de Janeiro. It sure seems like the Christ statute in Rio overlooks lots of film making these days. My guess is many movie producers love to vacation in Rio, the taxes are cheaper and the women are hotter than in Topeka. Ya think?  All said, it was an improvement over last years Faster.
