The saga fast and furious, I saw the light in 2001, has established itself as a solid action and racing franchise. And although five films to date are quite irregular among themselves, should recognize the merit of always deliver adrenalinicas persecutions, voluptuous girls, non stop action and lots testosterone. This fifth part follows the path of the previous tape (2009), brings back the dupla protagonist (Vin Diesel and Paul Walker) and adds interesting elements that refresh the franchise. On the one hand we have Dwight the rock Johnson, who embodies a fun police head of muscle and, on the other, the attractive location of Rio de Janeiro, where the plot unfolds. Clearly, this river has nothing to do with the animated film.The plot is the least. Rather, it is an excuse that repeated the modus operandi of previous tapes it is say, gather a team to perform a great blow – to confront our antiheros with forces of the place. In this case, the very corrupt police of River, bribed by villanesco Hernan Reyes (De Almeida). The rest is what is expected of these tapes.
Much fighting hand-to-hand, dialogues very male, sports cars and close to caricature car chases. In that sense, the sequence of the heroes by dragging a vault by the Brazilian streets must be of the best action scenes on four wheels for the last time. But perhaps best of all is that the film does not take itself seriously. And that is appreciated. Again from the hand of the Taiwanese director Justin Lin, fast and furious 5 demonstrates that you still has gasoline to the saga. Although not too much.
