Just as the plot threatens to run out of gas, Lin rescues the film with a spate of vastly ridiculous and therefore enjoyable set-pieces, most of which involve means of conveyance designed to make the cars look puny.

Some of the action sequences are insane. No, really. Absurd, impossible, physics defying, triage-required stuff. No matter. That's the foolish rush of a franchise that must go faster and faster and furiouser and furiouser.

Vin Diesel makes gravel audible-there's one reason he didn't choose "Vin Cashmere" as his nom de zoom-with elongated, not quite drawled delivery of lines like "L'es go for a li'l ride."

This Formula 6 racing flick's tire-spinning in a vacuum: the plausible's passed early on, the ludicrous is smoked down the stretch, and any lingering basic law of action-film gravitas is shredded by the finish line.

There is a lot of hollow talk about codes of honor and some really corny dialogue and delivery, but the light tone and breakneck pace make these things easy to forgive. Lin has become a top-flight action director.

With an apparent brief to set a new franchise record for on-screen vehicular mayhem, the film's signature sequence involves the car-crunching daylight pursuit of a tank as it powers down the wrong side of a Spanish freeway. It's magnificently nuts.

Audience Reviews for Fast & Furious 6

I love the combination of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson; they breathed fresh air back into this franchise with the previous action-numbing installment. This time the scope and action sequences reach even more outlandish heights of dizzying proportion.

In order to keep audiences interested, the producers of the Fast and Furious franchise have to keep "upping the ante." The results of this geometric increase in both scope and stunt sophistication is a decidedly mixed bag. It is undeniably exciting but I found myself laughing at many of the grandiose special effects, not amazed at them. This series began with street racers hijacking trucks and the police doing anything they could to stop them. I personally liked the backstories as well. The series is now crescendoing to a farcical monstrosity of international intrigue, complete with globe-trotting cops and bad guys. That formula works well in the James Bond franchise, but here I find the recipe less palatable.

I personally could overlook the previously-assumed dead Letty's reappearance and amnesia as well as a tank flying around a highway, but the sheer spectacle of the visuals do not compensate for the unimaginative plot and poor character development. I like all the principal characters; Dwayne Johnson was a fantastic addition to the series. I don't feel the danger or care about the characters enough in this installment though. The chemistry is still there, but Fast and Furious feels more like a video game and less like street-level people you care about now. Adjectives like implausible and unrealistic have given way to inconceivable and nonsensical. Remember your roots guys.

Justin Lin keeps his foot on the pedal with Fast & Furious 6.There just so happens to be enough material to fill the 2 hour run time. The story does have its moments of absurdity, but for the most part its entertainment value is more than adequate. Despite what could be a complex heist type of film, the plot details are light, which leans this picture more toward an action adventure that is easy to follow.The action is explosive and in high demand. With that said, a lot of it is over the top, yet it somehow fits right in with the style of film.It's hard to fault the cast at this point. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker having been at it for years now. Luke Evans and Gina Carano are nice additions to the show. The rest of the returning cast follow in their lead's shoes.Fast & Furious 6 keeps the intensity up on the worlds longest runway. Recommendable for what it is.

An insanely hilarious bad action movie spectacle full of plot holes but not short on charm concerning Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) pulling one last job AGAIN, this time for a government agent (Dwayne Johnson), who can grant his team pardons for all their past crimes if they help him take down a mastermind criminal (Luke Evans). Let's not even get into the massive plot holes, such as Brian O'Conner's wife Mia (Jordana Brewster) being totally cool with her husband (Paul Walker) going after a bunch of killers despite just having a son with her, or the fact that the crew doesn't even get the pardons in WRITING, a vocal agreement from Johnson is apparently enough, AND the fact that gravity no longer exists so amazing fight scenes can take place. Let's just not touch those problems. Is this movie wildly entertaining? Absolutely. Does it pretend to be anything else close to realistic outside of being a fun ride? No way. So far that, and the mere reason that I enjoyed and laughed throughout its duration (intentional or not), especially during its car chase and fight scenes, as well as bad dialogue, I cannot recommend it enough. If you love the 'Fast and Furious' franchise, you will definitely dig this, no question.

The titles are getting less inspirational now as we lurch into the sixth entry in this massively overblown franchise. We've had LA, California, Miami, Tokyo, Dominican Republic, Mexico/US border and Rio de Janeiro, now its London's turn for more turbo charged high jinx. More like a videogame as we travel around the globe to different destinations for the car sequences (take your pick). Oh and this is still a prequel to the third film as 'Han' is still alive and well, all the films are a prequel to the third accept for the next (number 7), as I've discovered.

So this time there is another bad guy that must be stopped gee whizz! a British villain, the Yanks just love us caddish Brits. The little twist this time is the fact that 'Toretto' and his crew are no longer the ones on the run, they are hired by G.I.Rock.babyoil.biceps.Johnson to bring this bad guy to justice. The reason is because he's building some kind of special tech that can bring down all power for an entire region, and then he will sell it...fiendish!.

The start of this film is basically a Bond sequence...seeing as this is what the film has now become, a kind of 'Bond/Mission: Impossible/(recent) Die Hard' mix with the good humoured character teamwork of 'Ocean's Eleven'. The uniting of the team is very much in this style, a little montage of the gang in their various hideouts, then all called up for service by the leader, criminals assemble!.

Mr Johnson is so hokey here too, of course he's not meant to be anything else really but jesus!. The guy is getting so thick he can't walk right, either that or he just swaggers horrendously. The dude is like a tagline machine, spitting out one butch statement after another, he's a walking action figure.

So virtually everybody is dragged back into the frey both goodies and baddies, the casting continuity is actually impressive. I think we all know now that Rodriguez is the big 'surprise' reentry here as it turns out she wasn't killed in number four. Nope she has been brought back to allow the franchise to continue even further. In all complete and utter honesty most of this film is totally mundane and routine, there is nothing here that is fresh or exciting. We are shown what really happened to 'Letty' although I can't believe she simply wasn't just shot in the head to make sure. Carano gets a good fight sequence...naturally, the underground is shown along with some other landmarks...naturally, and of course we are given one obligatory street race.

London and no traffic?? nah! but wait! what was that moment when 'O'Connor' knocks that bug device off the front of his BMW by skidding past a concrete pillar?. How the hell did he even know where it was? its size? width? how on earth did he manage to gauge that move without slamming into the pillar or just missing the bug completely??. I know these films are not to be taken seriously but its moments like that that just make it laughable, a joke.

The cars this time are more unique with a few more British models (of course), bored with large numbers of imports we now get some curious models. The Dodge Charger Daytona and its long pointed body with huge spoiler fin, a British Ford Escort, the Jenson Interceptor, a Ford Anvil Mustang, a Plymouth Barracuda, and an Alfa Romeo are all used.

The film grows tiresome right up until a fast paced chase sequence in Spain down a highway. Starting off kinda generic but quickly turning into something much more interesting as they end up chasing a tank. The sequence unfortunately ends on a highly absurd set piece requiring CGI assistance which spoils the moment but it is fun (how many innocent people were killed on that highway?!!). Just when you think that's that bugger me we get another good sequence, saved the best stuff for last it seems. This time the team are chasing (always chasing) a large cargo aircraft which is stuffed with yet more cars. So guess what? yep we get lots of cars everywhere, silly stunts, CGI stunts, explosions, utterly impossible feats, Dwayne 'my t-shirts are really tight' Johnson fighting an even bigger meathead, more girl fights, heroic deaths and the longest damn take off in the world. Seriously how long does it take that plane to lift? and how long is that runway??.

At first I was really not going along with this whole idea, a sixth film!. Then as I started to watch I realised hey I was right! this is just complete rehash. Its only when we get to the last half hour or so of the film that things get exciting with those two chase sequences, up to then its seriously average. I like how they have engineered the plot from part three and the franchise as a whole into a bigger picture, all these films are prequels and the finale here does tie that up nicely. The only thing is before that they do tie up the whole franchise very nicely with a good ending for all the characters involved. I did get the feeling this was the perfect moment to finish this for good, end it now with a solid bookend. The fact they are pushing it further is really milking it and really pushing their luck...if you ask me.

This was gonna be a low score but the last two sequences in the finale saved this films life big time, almost a fail, how much longer can it hold out?.
