Movie Info

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano. Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again. Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series. (c) Fox

Critic Reviews for Fast & Furious 6

All Critics (203) | Top Critics (42)

  • 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.

  • Exists purely to showcase how idiotically over-the-top action sequences can become when annoyances like gravity are tossed to the side.

  • 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.

  • How you feel about "Fast & Furious 6" is a matter of perspective.

  • Ludicrous, but undeniably fun and surprisingly affectionate, this is really all you could ask of a car crash movie, and more.

  • Furious Six continues on in the same vein as its predecessor, and may just be my favorite of the lot.

Audience Reviews for Fast & Furious 6

  • Apr 13, 2017
    I've said it many times before, but one of the main reasons why the F&F movies failed to reach mass appeal before Fast Five was because of their villains. They were always forced to take on low end drug dealers and people who have little to do with their line of work; driving cars really fast and stealing things. With Fast & Furious 6, the team gets to take on Owen Shaw & his own crew, who are equally as good at doing crazy stuff on wheels. Dom regathers his team, including Brian, Han, Gisele, Roman, and Tej, after Hobbs comes to him with an offer he can't refuse. The chance to save Letty from Shaw and take him down, in exchange for full pardons all the way around. After quite a few films on the run and unable to return to his home in Los Angeles, there's no way he could turn down this opportunity, even if it meant going up against his former girlfriend thought dead, Letty. Fast & Furious 6 has even more muscle, explosions, faster cars, and just downright insanity. But it isn't as clean cut or polished as Fast Five. Granted, a movie like this doesn't necessarily need to have a concise story or developed characters, but they've done a much better job at doing those things within the last few films. The 6th film feels a little slower and maybe even a little too long, with the end product still putting a huge smile on my face. But when comparing the two, a second watch definitely exposes some of this film's minor flaws. The one thing this film, and pretty much all of the films since 4, is that each keeps topping itself. Just when you think they couldn't top stealing a vault and dragging across the streets of Brazil, they take down planes with cars. The tone deafness of the series is gone and the new breed of F&F is here to stay. The crazy thing is, you buy into all of it. I bought into the family from the beginning and I one-hundred-percent buy into the series embracing it's goofiness. The film also manages to implement more humor into the 6th film which is something the franchise has been missing. Or at least, humor that actually makes people laugh. I won't count those horrible attempts at humor in the 2nd film. What makes this film stick out his that it's the first time the crew gets to go up against an entirely new crew with the same set of skills. Luke Evans is great as Owen Shaw, The Rock has never been better, and who doesn't love watching Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson crack one-liners at each other. Better yet, every word out of Vin's mouth is a one-liner. Overall, the ante is once against raised and the series punches its way through another smash hit. Fast & Furious 6 is an insane thrill ride from the beginning to end. +Owen Shaw +Team vs Team +Rock & Vin working together +Always pushing the genre and series to a new level -A bit slower & a tad too long 9.1/10

    Again, The Rock and Justin Lin help to keep this franchise buoyant. The acting performances by Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Chris Bridges are laughable at times and aren't much better from the rest of the cast especially Michelle Rodriguez but the action scenes help keep this score afloat. The script suffers from what I call "Bad Boys 2 syndrome" whereas the story could wrap up with a little more editing and completion, but chooses to continue on for another 30-35 minutes instead. Still a vast improvement over the middle installments of the series. The studio will likely continue to buy up the best promising original action movie scripts that they find, changing the characters to match those from this franchise and releasing F&F films.

    British McEnglishman and his Formula 1 Batmobile bring you the eighth wonder of the world: The 9000 Mile Runway! I'm glad the story continued in the direction introduced by Fast 5, but personally I felt that it did not exceed or even quite match the entertainment value of its predecessor.

    Another awesome installment to the franchise! Fast & Furious 6 is actually better than its predecessor! It has great characters, humor, action and of course sexy cars/women!
