Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

When a hyper-criminal uses awesome driving skills as a modus operandi in his ultra-criminal endeavours, Hobbs knows that there is only one crew that can help him. Problem is, they’re sitting on a $100 million retirement fund and have little inclination to regroup but the smell of exhaust and Hobbs’ promise of full pardons all round soon changes their minds. Oh, and the fact that the dead-for-a-couple-of-years Letty was photographed as a now-living part of the mega-criminal crew.


This is a franchise that I have no real idea why I keep watching it and yet here I am again. The original The Fast and the Furious is a legitimately good film; stylish, involving and imaginative. While Fast & Furious 6 is not as good as that, it is the best sequel to date and this is director Justin Lin’s best action sequences yet. They’re actually intelligible, if awesomely preposterous, and are thrilling and look good. Again, the trailer genuinely spoils the whole shebang, but if you haven’t seen that, the movie contains more than enough eye-popping action to keep you happy.

This movie contains a single sexual swear word, bad language, adult dialogue, nudity, sensuality, extreme but bloodless melee violence, graphic gun violence.
