This past week my boyfriend, friends and I went to go see the highly anticipated “Fast and Furious 6.” To say that I have been anxiously awaiting this movie is an understatement. I have loved these action packed movies since they were first released…and am pleased to say this one was no different! Although the story line becomes more unrealistic with each movie (ie: Dom jumping across a bridge to save Letty-I would just like to point out my boyfriend fell asleep during this extremely romantic scene of the movie -_-.), these movies can’t be beat- just check their box office record!
As always I love seeing the great cars…especially the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona…and the street races that these movies are famous for. The infamous Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel is a huge part of the reason why these movies are so great; alongside his team Paul Walker (Brian O’Connor), Jordanna Brewster (Mia Toretto), Michelle Rodriquez (Letty), Tyrese Gibson (Roman), Sung Kang (Han), Gal Gadot (Gisele) and Ludacris (Tej.) Can I just say how much I love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as part of this movie franchise? I mean really though, perfect fit.
Letty is alive!!!….Thank-god, she is one badass chick…But has amnesia from her car wreck we all thought she died from. Finally, one of my favourite, and most surprising parts of the movie was at the very end where they take us back to Tokyo Drift where Han gets killed. Turns out Han’s death can be attributed to a new character (villain?) played by Jason Statham (Safe, Parker, Crank), who I’m sure the 7th F&F will revolve around.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I will spend the rest of the month watching movies 1-5, and the going to re-see the 6th. 🙂
