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.

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.

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

From the very beginning, the Fast & the Furious franchise has always been the very definition of guilty pleasure. High art it ain't, but it's undeniably fun. What has kept the franchise alive, however, has been its willingness to evolve. While the original was essentially a remake of Point Break, by #3 it was focused on the racing, and then starting with the fourth film it took a giant step in reinventing itself - Fast & Furious as a heist franchise. Fast Five was arguably the best in the series so far, with the whole gang back together as well as the addition of Dwayne Johnson.

Fast and Furious 6 (or just "Furious 6" as shown in the film) continues in the vein of the previous film, but cranks up the outrageousness. This works both for and against the film. The action scenes are fun, exciting, and adrenaline-filled, but they grow increasingly more outrageous and at times seriously stretch your ability to suspend disbelief, soliciting more than a couple eyerolls. The involvement of the gang in this mission is questionable from the beginning. They have the knowledge and talent when it comes to cars, but somehow they're also meant to hold their own in gunfights and such against miltary-trained personnel.

The movie balances its lasrge cast very well. Every character has their moments and none feel short-changed in this movie. There's not a weak link in the cast. Well, I guess one... New this time around are Gina Carano as Hobbs' right-hand woman, and Luke Evans as the villain. Evans fits well, and plays his part without going too over-the-top. Carano, on the other hand... well, the woman can certainly fight, but she can't deliver even a single line of dialogue convincingly. I take back everything I ever said about her being a good choice if they ever make that Wonder Woman movie.
Beyond that, everything is just as it should be - the action, the humor, the cars, the music... it all adds up to a blast of a movie, even if it is a bit unbelievable.

The ending tag scene left me a bit conflicted. On the one hand, the movie kind of tied up the series nicely and made a nice conclusion, but then they go and open it up for the next sequel (and I imagine not the last). I'm all for more of these movies, but only if they can continue to evolve and stay fresh without just being rehashes.

Where does this rank in the series? I'll have to see it again to be certain, but it's definitely top 3, up there with 1 and 5.

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.
