Starting out with a really great action sequence as well as ending with one, this action flick has its problems with everything in between. The characters work, even though some are cardboards and there are too many of them to do them all justice. But while the enemy may be portrayed as dangerous, he has hundreds of disposable minions, which simply does not exactly raise the stakes. Once again, the mid-film visit to the local racing scene is particularly silly and pointless. The movie takes itself a little too serious at times and forgets that it's just supposed to be fun. That's why the beginning and the ending work, but in between there is a lot of thin air, something part six did so much better. Entertaining, but dumb.

The Fast and Furious universe is brought together in the high-octane thrill ride Fast Five, which is only gets more action-packed in the Extended Edition. On the run from the law O'Conner and Toretto pull a train job in Brazil, but when they're betrayed they put a crew together in order to bankrupt the crime boss that set them up. The cast has incredible chemistry (The Rock especially), making for some really interesting character dynamics; which are enhanced by the added scenes. And, the action sequences are extraordinarily well-staged and exciting. The Fast Five: Extended Edition kicks the series into high-gear and doesn't let up.

Why is the Rock so sweaty?
