It's quick, it has an actual enjoyable heist storyline and it's good fun.

Do we really need a fifth movie filled with car races, car chases and car crashes? Of course not. But then, we also don't need the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren or the Autobahn. But they add an awfully lot of fun to our short, brutal lives.

From the opening, adrenalin-pumping prison bus escape to a heart-pounding car theft aboard a fast-moving train, Fast Five throws it down from the jump.

...achieves the sort of zen chaos that defines the Die Hard films

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.

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.

It's trying so hard to pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease. But that's also why it's entertaining

nostalgic for older team films, and a world in which people interacted face to face
