When a gang of criminals, who are being helped by Letty, strike Hobbs must locate the only man who can help, Dominic Toretto, and get him to bring his team back together.

The film has a slightly different feel to it when compared to the others as they are not stealing anything; they are helping out a Special Forces team capture the bad guys. The film is mainly set in London and while it was cool to see fast cars charging around the streets of London for an organised street race it’s not very believable.

A couple of other things that niggled away at me were how poor the Police were made to look in the Underground station fight, the amount of people that must of died when the tank was running over what seemed to be every car on the road, yet no one said anything, and most of all the plane that must have been on the longest runway in the world.

 

Recommend

Now I know it is just a film that is made for entertainment purposes and I shouldn’t look at the contents in such a serious manner and should just look at it as a popcorn/turn off your brain flick. So by going by that thinking the film was enjoyable and being the sixth instalment you know what you are going to get. Also the teaser just at the end of the film for number 7 will probably drag most people back to this franchise.

If you enjoy cars, tanks, fighting, gun battles, over the top action sequences and the other Furious films then I would recommend this to you although you could wait for it to be released on the small screen.

 

TheFriedGold rating – 5/10 – An enjoyable ‘turn your brain off’ film
