Fast cars, fast babes, and fast action — three things the “Fast and Furious” franchise does pretty well. The fifth entry in the series, going by the title “Fast Five”, looks like more of the same — which in this case is a good thing because that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Everyone is back for this one, which makes me think it could possibly be the last one … unless it makes a buttload of money, then I’m guessing a sixth one won’t be too far behind. Check out a new batch of images from the movie, opening late this month on April 29, 2011.
Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.
Starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Elsa Pataky, Joaquim de Almeida, Dwayne Johnson, and directed by Justin Lin.
