Fast And Furious 6

Movie franchises usually don't last long unless they are really good. But there are exceptions. There are longest running movie titles that are made every year that has no quality and yet surprisingly were box-office hits. Not all movie franchises are that good. The only exceptions were James Bond movies and currently The Dark Knight trilogy and Fast & Furious movies. I got to appreciate it first in The Fast & The Furious were it began but it became really interesting after Tokyo Drift.

Not only the cars are the real stars of the movie but there are also continuity from the fourth movie onwards. Adding Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to the story is a good idea and it never conflicts with Vin Diesel in regards to stardom.

This movie will close the full circle at last when a scene will show where Tokyo Drift fits in the franchise. Usually, sequels were not good but in this case, it keeps on getting better. Just like what they mentioned, Fast & Furious will have three more movies in line. Pardon me for not doing coverage when the cast was here in the Philippines. I was not on the guest list but at least I got to write this review.

  1. Fun movie, if you're willing to overlook the outrageous stunts and the impossibly long chase scene on the 28 mile long runway towards the end of the film. The cars oh, the glorious cars! My personal favorite was Brian's Escort Mk I, Letty's Jensen Interceptor & the 70 Mustang. It set the tone for another sequel, which would explain the events related to Han in Tokyo Drift.
