Movie Review: The Fast & The Furious 6

"And lastly, thank you for fast cars"

What's driving, peeps? In case nobody knew, I've been invited for the Nuffnang Premiere Screening of The Fast & The Furious 6 last night and it was nothing short of adrenaline pumping.

And a great big yay for pretty looking tickets all thanks to Nuffnang and United International Pictures!

The Fast & The Furious 6 picks up after its predecessors of The Fast & The Furious franchise, promising of fast cars, epic explosions and crazy driving all around town. Continuing from where it left off in The Fast & The Furious 5, be prepared to live in not just one but several countries all at once because that's what The Fast & The Furious 6 is all about. With lesser of the futuristic, fast cars and more of the old classics that packs a punch, it's what could have been a one of a kind movie with a palette of occasional sexiness you can't find from the new cars. Throw in a whole load of testosterone action with one liner funnies and that's the whole movie for you.

A big point to the movie though had to be the cars that the villains had to drive because those were just kick ass! Bullet proof, damage proof and it doesn't even get dented in accidents? Boy, get me one of those! Alright, alright, lesser of the spoiler moments and more of the review? I'll sum it up to be AWESOME. The Fast & The Furious 5 was better in my opinion but Fast 6 was still awesome anyway!

I think I just shat my pants...

Vin Diesel plays Dominic Toretto for the 6th time now (I don't think it would ever feel the same if anyone else is Dom Toretto) and is still the classy old Dom everyone knows. His one line jokes and deep voiced orders to the team still takes off to be good as ever, helping put The Fast & The Furious 6 in line with its previous franchises. An overall good show from Vin Diesel being nothing away from the regular Dom even through all these years!

Would you stick something into my nostrils?

Paul Walker comes back as Brian O'Conner and vows first to throw away his past identity only to come back when Mia Toretto tells him to do it. Tell me about being a little boy to a big girl eh? Walker delivers his usual raw act as Brian O'Conner, not being any different from his norm and playing it cool in his speedy driving.

I'm back, people.

Michelle Rodriguez is back as Letty Ortiz; resurrected and on the darker side of life. It's probably refreshing to have seen her back on screen with Diesel / Toretto for their spark and to see how Toretto has his soft spot for her. She is undeniably sexy with a flair for speed as much as Toretto and also good to have her come back in such a classy way. It was a great plot to bring her back and also to twist around her wiped out mind just to make the movie a little less predictable.

I'm getting rockier by the day!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson plays Luke Hobbs, a Diplomatic Security Service agent; just like how he was in Fast 5. What made it different this time around though had to be the fact that he seeks help from Toretto in dealing with what needs to be done. It was not just eerie to have seen Johnson stand next to Diesel and compare their sizes but was also freaky to have seen how Johnson luges all his weight all around. While it was a great act by Johnson, I can't help but to feel that he still lives much in his "Rocky" days to deliver a stoned performance. Geddit, geddit? Rocky? Stoned? Geddit? 

Other notable acts includes Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Chris Bridges as Tej, Sung Kang as Han, Gal Gadot as Gisele and also Luke Evans as Owen Shaw. Everything adds up well to compliment each other in the end, giving you a funny yet action packed movie to boot. Throwing in a 7/10 on my personal scale for everything as a whole. There's a spoiler towards the end so don't just walk off soonest you see them dim off but there's nothing after the credits so it's safe to say you don't have to sit through it rolling. I like how there was also a disclaimer that this was just a movie acted in controlled situations and reminding people not to copy their acts. Classy way of saving their butts but sometimes idiots do need some reminders like that. The Fast & The Furious 6 ticked off my movie to watch this year now...so what's next, Nuffnang?
