Three sentence movie reviews: Fast 5

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews


In this Car-Miscreants-Turne-Bank-Robbers, we establish that it’s okay for Vin Diesel to shoot non-named extras (aka Red Shirts) but any actor listed in the credits must be dispatched by Mr. Diesel via car shenanigans, or Paul Walker stepping in at the last moment.  The addition of the Rock to the ever-growing list of actors in this series is most welcome as Mr. Johnson completely buys into the seriousness with which the actors take this entirely ridiculous franchise that manages to be so enjoyable. Favorite moment:  when the side of the train is pulled off and there stands Vin Diesel, ready to do what has to be done, including driving a car off a cliff.

Cost: $2.75 at Videorama (It was one of Employee Yvonne’s Top Picks)
Where watched: at home.

    I saw a great post about how this series actually reflects the diversity of America is a true manner. That every film should strive to have the same reflection. Interesting, huh?

      I think about that a lot when I watch the film. The people of color have fleshed-out stories, unlike, say Pitch Perfect 2.

    Ah, the only one I’ve seen all the way through! I know I’ve told you before why I disliked it, so I won’t repeat myself here. We do own it, though (Dan’s purchase obviously), so I could watch it again if I really wanted to.
