The ‘fast five movie’ commonly known as The Fast and Furious is an American action movie written by Chris Morgan and directed by Justin Lin. The movie depicts the story with the help of his sister, and friends Dom was saved from the hands of the authorities. The team is seriously pursued by Hobbs, who follows them to Rio de Janeiro in South America. Hobbs is caught between the two gangs fighting each other - Dam’s gang and Reyes’ gang. Although the movie has a lot of action and heavy compact, it presents a clear, real life situations faced by gangs in their internal organizations, and the security agents in the USA. An overall review of the movie is a total entertainment, which portrays real-life events.
When “Dom” Toretto is being transported to the Lompoc Prison by bus, his friend Brian and his sister Mia Toretto assault the bus by making it crash and releases Dom. This type of a plan is a common approach that gangs use to protect their members from the security agents. As expected, the rescue leads to a hot pursuit by the security agents who are determined to get back Dom to prison. As the authorities searched for the trio, the trio plans to escape Rio. While waiting for Dom to arrive, Brian and Mia alongside Vince and other participants plan to steal three cars from the train. This event is what follows after many criminal activities involving gangs. The participants seek means of transport to escape as fast as possible. Most of the time the criminal or gangs steal vehicles from the regions and use them to escape. A coincidence occurs in the process stealing the cars from the train, the gang realizes that agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration were in the train. Two discoveries are revealed. One of the cars that was seized was a hot property, and that is why agents accompanied them. Secondly, Zizi was interested in stealing one car, a Ford GT40. Dom wants to know why the car was of such interest to Zizi.
Don makes Mia steal the car herself, and they fought Zizi, who had killed the DEA agents. As Dom, Brian, and Mia steal the car to find its importance, Vince arrives and is caught attempting to remove a chip that was to be sold to Reyes. The chip contained Reyes’ criminal record. The killing of the DEA agents makes the DSS agent Luke Hobbs follows them in Rio to arrest Brian and Dom. With the help of Elena Neves, a local officer, Dom’s safe house is identified but Hobbs finds it under assault by Reyes’ men. Mia and Brian escape and Dom suggest that they split (Roger, 2014). At this point, Mia announces that she is pregnant with Brian’s child necessitation sticking together. Hobbs finally finds and arrests Mia, Dom, Vince, and Brian.
Audience would think that Hobbs made uninterruptible progress only for him to be countered by Reyes’ men. As Dom and his team fight back Reyes’ men, they save Hobbs and Elena. Vince is shot and killed in the process making Hobbs and Elena joining in the revenge for Vince’s death. The team breaks into a prison where Reyes’ money is. In a pursuit by the police, Dom lets Brian proceed without him as he remains behind attacking the police. Brian returns to the scene and kills Zizi. Reyes is wounded by Dom’s assault before Hobbs arrives on the scene and kills Reyes. Hobbs gives Dom and Brian 24 hours to flee. The gang divides the money among themselves giving Vince’s share to his family. In such situations, the security agents end up becoming friends with the gang member and both exchange favors.
An expectation from the movie watchers from which after four movies about street racers that turned into criminals is that it would be wise to change the plot. The need to move the film to a different location like the streets of Rio de Janeiro offered the director Justin Lin an opportunity to show the beautiful parts of the city. The action scenes in the movie were increased along with the street racing. Not only the movie for this reason displayed not only the beauty of the city juxtaposed with the criminal organizations as well as the behavioral trend that included secrets, backbite, and betrayal (Katey, 2014).
In the last part of his review (de Semlyen) noted that the film in a great film in any normal criteria. He further stated that the film was filled with a lot of scenes that were clunky, and it felt too long for an action film. On the other hand, both (Ritch) and (Ebert) enjoyed the movie for what it was. They have appreciated the implausible car chases and also the funny dialogues (empireonline.com).
In conclusion, the fast five presents a unique entertainment. The thrill and unprecedented encounters form the best sections of the movie. The end is unexpected and leaves the viewer overwhelmed. It is a movie that best describes actual gang behaviors.
