Has really transformed this series from camp action cinema to exciting heist cinema.

The last 2 entries were stupid too, but at least this one was well directed and features some of the most impressive stunt work I've seen in years.

Fast Five boasts incredible action scenes that are all varied and equally exciting. The film is full of clean, well choreographed shots that are easy to watch and the cast works great as a whole unit, making the film's running time breeze by.

Like a shot of nitro to the franchise and shows there's plenty left in the tank.

Manages to be more fun than any movie with its outrageous carbon footprint has any right to be.

The jauntier vibe makes for easier viewing between the big high-speed car set pieces, which are every bit as big, loud, and crazily over-the-top preposterous as one would expect and hope.

It's about cars, girls and fighting and doesn't pretend to be anything else. For sheer gall alone, "Fast Five" provides much entertainment. Just not much intellect.

Forget physics, it's just a fun blast of action movie ingenuity, as is the film as a whole.

Director Justin Lin has a spooky, second sense for staging bombastic action sequences, even if he breaks every law in physics to make them work.

There's arguably even more gun and car play than in F&F4, with the prolonged car chase finale easily chiming in as the best, most imaginative one in the franchise so far.

'Fast Five delivers what a dumb, popcorn flick is supposed to and easily passes my standard 'guy-movie' litmus test -- it makes one want to drive fast after seeing it, high gas prices or not. (Parental Content Review also available)

...a frustratingly protracted piece of work that should have been so much better...

Street racing is dialed down in favour of Ocean's Eleven-style heist plotting and favela gunplay straight out of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
