After effects of Rio heist
After the successful heist in Rio the Toretto(Vin Diesel) & team retires and settles down with their families and just about at that moment Luke hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) shows up at Toretto’s and seeks his help to bring down Shaw who possesses a computer chip which when fit in the nightshade device can take down a whole region. Toretto wouldn’t accept it, but there is a catch which woos him – his ex-girlfriend (Rodriguez) who was assumed dead is very much alive and works for the antagonist Shaw(Luke Evans).
The team gathers, lays out plans, go after Shaw and his henchmen and obviously they loose the first time and Toretto ends up with a bullet triggered by his ex! Which makes it even more perplexed when did she join Shaw’s crew! Putting pieces together the team finds out one ploy after another. Besides putting up stunts on roads will the team be able to withhold Shaw is what forms the rest of the story.
Luke Hobbs: There is never nothing, there is always something
Shaw: Simplest things cause the biggest problems
It’s exactly what cops do… Messing up with your head!
Lady Cop(addressing Toretto’s team): Are you sure about these guys?
Luke Hobbs: Nope
Toretto (Addressing Luke): You’ve got the best crew in the world right in front of you. Give them a reason to stay.
Fast and furious is indeed fast enough and takes you on a virtual roller-coaster ride. There are unimaginable and partly unceremonial stunts which put you awestruck.
Seems like the franchise is running out of plots and needs refueling. Despite the awe striking stunts the screenplay puts you to sleep in between these races which could have been avoided. Unnecessary twists and turns like this one where Hobbs assistant cop turns out to be Shaw’s team and she walks out on them as the movie culminates.
Universal studios chose to pursue this sequel quicker tan usual due to having fewer reliable franchises than its competitor studios, despite the usual two to three year gap between previous installments.
Worst Rated: 5/ 10
