Director: Justin Lin
This has to be my favorite The Fast & The Furious installment! The story was awesome. I’m a sucker for a good storyline. Of course my favorite people came back. I love it when the original actors come back and not some replacement pretending to be the original character.
Fast & Furious 6 picks up where 5 left off. Turns out LETTY IS ALIVE! Diplomatic Secretary Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) needs help investigating Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), a former British soilder and the leader of a heist gang. Letty Oritz (Michelle Rodriguez) is part of that gang. Hobbs needs Dominic (Dom) Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his gang’s help. He calls on Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Chris Bridges aka Ludacris), Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang) and Gisele Yashar (Gal Gadot). With the principal of never leaving family behind, the team agrees to help with the case and bring Letty home. It also helps that if they catch Shaw, all of them will be pardoned for their crimes.
Shit goes down. Turns out Letty as amnesia and as no memory of Dom or the rest of her family.Since she doesn’t remember them, she has no hesitation in shooting Dom. The team discovers thats the case for Letty but Dom doesn’t feel phased by it. He encounters her again and trie to bring back her memory. It didn’t work, but Letty feels something. In the end, Shaw is killed and Gisele dies trying to save Han.
I didn’t do the whole story but that just means you need to go watch it. There are two stories going on. The one of Shaw and taking him down and the one of Letty trying to figure out who she is and what team she belongs with. I love that they focused on her. It lead the audience to find out they’ve been together since they were 15 thats why they are so inseparable. Even after losing her memory she stills feels their connection. It was also cool how the cop woman Dom was dating after he thought Letty had died said that she accepts that he choose Letty over her. Pretty cool of her.
My favorite, absolute favorite thing about this film is ALL the jokes that were cracked, especially by Roman and Tej! Damn they were funny. Hobbs on Tej’s phone is Samoan Thor. Roman said they were fighting their evil twins and thought the pretty blonde chick had to be Brian. I just can’t. Too funny in too many scenes. I love it. So excited for 7 now that the films will finally connect to Tokyo Drift.
Not to mention. Of course the car scenes are awesome. Obvi
Go watch it. Really. Do it.
My Rating: 10/10
