We have grown to love these characters over the course of the series that one cannot help but cheer on for them. Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again. How do they come up with this stuff!! Not to mention this huge plane exploded right next to everyone and no one was even that bothered by it. They needlessly kill dozens of innocent people by crushing them to death and no one even seems fazed by it. There are too many characters that we don't care about. This series has started it's roots from racing and formed into another predictable action movie.
However there was good stuff too. Fast and Furious 6 just went off its rails, scrap that - it completely flew off its rails. Shouldn't he be getting in a car and rushing to where she fell to find her. Then they actually capture this tank and Shaw's team are now military experts who know exactly how to control this tank. This part of the film I felt was good, even if they did practically ignore the car side of things.
He is a skilled action director, and many filmmakers can learn a few things or two from him: The action sequences are impressive, engaging, comprehensible, and well-shot, with practical effects to boot. In the end everything turns out right. As for the story, it's nothing special, but I dare you not to act surprised when several plot twists are revealed; I did so more than I would like to admit. As an action packed film, and the occasional race which forcefully became relevant to the story, Fast and Furious 6 is great. Or will my car suddenly shoot forwards from momentum and smash into the insides of plane.
They should have just ended the film with Owen Shaw being captured, then have Ian Shaw Statham break him free at the start of the next film. One cop actually turns out to be a bad guy. It's awful, from this moment on the film goes rubbish. The key to the franchise's upward turn in quality is due to director Justin Lin. So they just had a fight for no reason. It would have been much more interesting if the military got involved alongside the team though. While I usually don't react out loudly when watching a film, this film had me gasping, jaw dropping, laughing, and applauding, sometimes all at once! Where the hell did this cargo plane come from, an unauthorised huge military cargo plane Shaw just happens to have ready, and also access to a military base runway.
Instead they plonked this last ridiculous action scene in there just because the producers felt like it needed it. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. In particular, Tyrese Gibson and Ludicrous have such a terrific rapport with each other that they provide some of the film's biggest laughs and memorable one-liners. Why didn't they make the convoy seem stronger and actually include some intelligent action here for the capture of the tank? This scene is meant to be about Shaw getting away. Oh yes we're not yet done with this franchise.
And don't even get me started with the whole Gisele dying scene. Letty is catapulted over the edge of a huge bridge; she is flying through the air to her certain death. Cars Anyways, There is a final scene when a 'new bad guy' makes an appearance. Likely she is but if you are Han in this situation do you stand there and accept it? Just everything about this last scene I disliked, probably because it was just so unnecessary to begin with. Shaw has casually organised a cargo plane to pick them up from this military base.
Meanwhile, Hobbs Johnson has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind Evans is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty Rodriguez. If you have seen the other films in this series then you can pretty much work out for yourselves what is going to happen. Film started off good then just went off the rails. She could have let her get away without getting herself thrown down some concrete stairs. The rest of military would.
The director got rid of her faster than all those V-8 powered engines put together! I would not consider myself an avid fan, but I have followed the series ever since the first movie and I would be the first one to tell you that this movie is a major disappointment. After Tokyo drift, the director relied heavily on action and random fillers to please the audience while leaving the fans frustrated and confused. And how could some of these other reviewers say this was the best of fast and furious? The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. While the later sequels do focus away from the car racing, they still featured cars, which helped retain old fans while bringing in new ones. This is major spoilers from now on Why, if Riley is Shaw's girlfriend would she be ordered practically to her death throughout the whole film? The first part and I should point out main bulk of the film was enjoyable, trying to track down Letty whilst working alongside the very man trying to stop them previously Hobbs offered something new and interesting and it made for some interesting moments. If there's one thing to learn about this franchise, it's that some change can be a good thing. Dom then catapults himself from the other side of the bridge there is a gap in the middle catches her in mid air and lands perfectly onto a car to break their fall.
Utterly ridiculous but I accept that is how the film works so I don't hold that against the film too much - that is just your typical mindless action movie stuff. Like every movie nowadays that promises action ,f6 has no 'well thought plot'. At one stage the cop hobbs johnson could shoot antagonist luke evans right in the face and spare us an hour or so but doesn't. This movie started off really well, however, it was set off course after the action started. . But it will leave the more hardcore film fan laughing at how they could write and direct a better film in their sleep. But no, Hobbs pulls a gun out and tells everyone how they are going to put loads of other lives at risk to save one person Mia by giving Shaw his chip and letting him go.
One of the guys has a wife and a kid and you could tell from the beginning that one of them will later on be kidnapped just to throw on us one more nauseous chase sequence. They forced this twist in the film for some reason. The last scene with the cargo jet is beyond unrealistic. Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again. However, the realism of this film was just dreadful, Star Wars was more believable when Yoda came back as a ghost. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
