Synopsis


Fast Five
Director Justin Lin (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious) returns to the helm for this adrenaline-charged sequel reuniting series stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for their biggest thrill ride yet. With the police in hot pursuit and wanted fugitive Dom (Diesel) in tow, Brian (Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) make their way to Rio, and realize they've run out of luck. In order to earn their freedom, they'll have to pull off their biggest job yet. After assembling a crack team of the top racers in Brazil, the gang prepares to confront the crooked businessman who seeks to silence them forever. Meanwhile, unstoppable federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has assembled his own team, an intimidating group of top cops whose sole mission is to capture Dom, Brian, and Mia by whatever means possible. But as the race heats up, Hobbs loses his ability to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Now, in order to prevent the lawless trio from being turned into roadkill before he can arrest them, Luke puts his pedal to the metal, and begins to rely more on his killer instinct than his police training. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Buying #5 of a "trilogy"?

    With Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson co-starring, I sure didn't buy it for the acting! But you put these two guys who are lead powerhouses in the best "B-movies" for pure action, and the testosterone and steroids make the "Fast & Furious" series even better. I bought it for the unique and Limited Edition (Only@Best Buy) Steelbook, because I just HAD to have these beautifully designed metal-work for my collection, and even if I never take the plastic wrap off (Note to Buyers: Some GENIUS taped the paper that is a copy of the rear info and reads "LIMITED EDITION STEELBOOK" on the front on to the top and bottom of the Steelbook case, so you CAN'T watch the DVD/Blu-Ray without tearing off the "L.E. Steelbook" heading!) But other than that, Best Buy under the new Minnesota leadership brought the DVD market share away from Amazon and into their online sales and especially their stores - a ingenious move by Best Buy administration, but a hassle to buyers, especially in Los Angeles, where all us spend our hard earned cash on collecting these Steelbook beauties; but the online store has very few available, and each store is evidently given only one or two small shipments - so I had to drive from Hollywood to Temecula to get this Steelbook - because the POLICY is that NO STORE CAN SHIP STEELBOOK'S TO YOU, AND YOU HAVE TO PERSONALLY COME INTO A STORE THAT HAS COPIES, BECAUSE POLICY FORBIDS THE STORE MANAGER FROM SENDING STEELBOOKS TO A STORE NEAR YOU. So when Best Buy uses the word "LIMITED," that also applies to EACH STORE and ONLINE. I am a loyal "Elite Plus" Best Buy customer, but even I had to by some of these on eBay rather than drive to a store 75 miles away. So you can cross your fingers and try to get one of these great Best Buy ONLY products (like I did with the "Fast & Furious," but even I had to get one of the series off eBay to complete my collection. Getting them from Best Buy is the least expensive option - and these are GREAT GIFTS for movie collectors - because eBay offers are more than TWICE what B.B. charges: $40-$100-. Kudos to Best Buy President & CEO for getting their market share back. I am hooked on these new Steelbooks (if you couldn't tell from the picture I posted) and another note of caution: Target's "Metal" casing is a cheap rip off very different than (Limited Edition) Steelbooks. The "Only@Best Buy LIMITED EDITION STEELBOOK is the only way to get these great products...if you can buy them from B.B. Online, they ship them in protected packing, so not one of the 50 I have are bent or scratched. And if you are willing to wait for a Steelbook release - which includes both blu-ray AND DVD - you'll never have the plastic case cracked or broken, for the same price as the cheap packing of new movies: Best Buy offers Steelbooks for as low as $9.99, with new releases at $19.99 - $24.99. And they look GREAT on the shelf, much better than trying to read the edge of a blu-ray!

    Best of the franchise

    Posted
    cruehead

    Ok, most people probly would say this doesnt deserve five stars, and theyre right. But the way i see it, if a movie makes you smile, cheer, laugh, and feel adrenaline rushed like this one does, then in that case yes, five it deserves. This is without a doubt the best entry in the franchise, with the same fun and excitement the first movie gave us, and the fun character chemistry the second one had. Complete with foot chases on rooftops, exhillerating bank vault pursuits, references to the original movie, and good ol fashioned hand-to-hand showdowns involving a couple brutes, Fast Five will almost deffinetly win you over in the entertainment department. And even though the story runs a little thin and the cinematography was lazy when there wasnt action on screen, that wont matter cuz the fun stuff absolutley makes up for it. All the characters youd wanna see together from the previous movies are now finally together, trash talking each other, wise crackin at the bad guys, and overall making what couldve been another lame car movie, into one of the best and most likeable action movies of the summer. Now if only we couldve had a more memorable villain that had more to do other than just sit around and worry about money, then this wouldve been even better, but oh well. Dwayne Johnson, or The Rock, does more than make up for the lackluster villain section of the movie. It was downright fun to watch. And thats all there is to it.

    Fifth and final (I hope)

    Fast Five is the latest in the action-driven, visually stunning, Fast and the Furious series. I would think it’s the last installment, but these days I suppose anything is possible. It begins with brother and sister Dom and Mia Toretto (Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster) along with ex-law enforcement officer Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker) as wanted fugitives on the move and in need of gainful, thought not legal, employment. Once they find a job and prove unsuccessful in performing it, they are now sought by a drug kingpin and faux philanthropist who contracted them in the first place. Rather than knuckle under or retreat, the trio decides to bankrupt their unscrupulous foe, and thereby render him powerless. For this they need help and that is the reason they bring any living associates they from the previous films that played a significant role. All the while their nemesis has informed the American authorities as to their location in an effort to spoil their plans. Enter The Rock, playing U.S. Marshal Luke Hobbs, with the unflinching assistance of the Rio police, who are paid agents of the aforementioned kingpin. In addition, Hobbs has a very rigid view of his responsibility for the larger portion of the film. Fast Five isn’t anything its predecessors weren’t. Save for a little misdirection at the end. It’s about beautiful cars, beautiful women, and the occasional fistfight or shootout. In that regard it’s a success.

    Good movie

    Overall pretty good movie. Good action. The Rock being introduced into the series was kind of cool. Awesome character, but I feel as if the directors or whoever the decision makers about characters in the movie are, made him a huge part of the series from his intro into the series. They should have built into his presence a little more slowly, just my opinion. Awesome character and great portrayal by Dwayne Johnson, bada** character. He did it very well. All in all, a great movie, one of my favorite in the series due to the bringing together of everyone. I just wish they wouldn't have changed Tyreses' character from part 2, into what they made him into as the series went on. He was supposed to be kind of a hard tough guy, and they turned him into a sort of bi***. One of my major complaints of the movie series. I miss the "dont give a f*** attitude/persona" that Roman had in 2 Fast 2 Furious. I do recommend this movie. I have all the movies on blu-ray, except 6 and 7, since they were offered on 4k, so I have them on 4k. I do not have the want get Tokyo Drift tho

    Excellent Series

    The Fast and Furious series is one of the best I have ever seen. A general rule of thumb I have found with movies is the first will be good, the second worth watching and after that the series or franchise is clearly not well thought of beyond just how to make more money. Fast and Furious franchise is different (yes i understand the purpose of these movies is for the company and actors to make money) but what is different is that each chapter in the story line is well thought out, planned, and edited with excellent acting. Each one carefully plays into and off of the previous ones and the entire story flows with 1 solid story line that doesn't deviate or try and change anything before it. If you want to see how following movies in a series need to be done to make the entire series worth seeing and not just the first couple, then this franchise will show you how.

    After the events wrapping up the previous movie, Brian's (Paul Walker) efforts for lenience on Dom (Vin Diesel) in exchange for busting a drug trafficking boss have failed, and Dom is sentenced to 25 to life WITH NO PAROLE. So Brian and Mia (Jordana Brewster) manage to overturn the prison bus before he even gets to the slammer. Now they are all wanted and flee to Rio, where they meet Vince (Matt Schulze, from the 1st movie) find a drug boss they want to steal from, by cracking his safe. Now they must find a team to help them, which they quickly assemble, A Diplomatic Security squad from the US, led by the big and strong Luke Hobbs (Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson) is also hunting for them. The team is Roman (Tyrese, from 2), Tej (Ludacris,also from 2), Han (Sung Kang, from Tokyo Drift), Gisele (Gal Gadot, from 4), and Dom's Dominican buddies (also from 4).

    Movie Was Outstanding. Best Buy, Not So Much.

    The Movie: From an individual who has watched the entire series I can say without hesitation that this one made up for the joke of a movie "Tokyo Drift" and is easily the best Fast and the Furious of the bunch. Nonstop action with great special effects and big name stars make for a great couple of hours of film. Best Buy: Best Buy has some serious work to do on their inventory control protocols. I ordered this movie on Black Friday and did not receive any communication from Best Buy until a week and a half later where they informed me that they had ran out of stock and could not give me a time line on when my order would be fulfilled. In total I waited over three weeks to get this movie. Best Buy gets 1 star from me.

    Buyer Beware: Item received is not as pictured

    The website photo did not match the item I received. I opted to return in-store, but the store was unable to do a re-ship of the correct item. In addition, online and in-store customer service were unable to figure out if the SKU was wrong or the photo was wrong. There is another item, SKU 3142111, on BestBuy.com which appears to be the same for $27.99, but the store refused to Price Match. I am very disappointed as this error resulted in my inconvenience and no movie.
