In this latest franchise addition, US Federal agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) requested Dom (Vin Diesel) and his team to hunt down an international terrorist Owen (Luke Evans). But Dom was retired, to raise his interest, Hobbs showed him a recent photo of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s girlfriend in the past – who apparently should be dead 2 films ago and was now working for Owen. Dom then assembled his team and Team Dom against Team Owen began.
Brian: Maybe the Letty we once knew is gone.
Dom: You don’t turn your back on family, even when they do.
Momentum was built up from the beginning as the cars of Dom and Brian (Paul Walker) burst out from the tunnel and raced to the hospital where Brian’s wife was giving birth. Don’t ask why the rush in the last minute. The pace didn’t slow down – there were chasing sequences that involved the flip car (a formula one style car with a ramp on its front to catapult other cars away), a tank, and a plane, with humor and actions in between.
Tej: You’re a millionaire and still asking for money?
Roman: That’s how you stay a millionaire.
Fast 6 was bigger and louder than previous films. It evolved from street car racing to mission impossible. There was a scene that Dom shot himself up into air to catch Letty who was thrown out from another vehicle (a tank) down the bridge; they then landed on the bonnet of another car. If not Vin Diesel, I might think I’m watching “Man of Steel”.
Letty: How did you know there would be a car here to break our fall?
Dom: I didn’t. Something you just have to take on faith.
Although it’s so unbelievable, it’s so undeniably exciting and entertaining. It has the best car chasing scenes and well-designed parallel action sequences. I like the part when Dom raced with Letty in order to recall her lost memory. Memory was lost, but driving skill and style remained – what an interesting thought!
Roman: Father thank you for the gathering of friends, Father we give thanks for all the choices we’ve made because that’s what makes us who we are, let us forever cherish the loved ones we’ve lost along the way; thank you for the little angel, the newest addition to our family, thank you for bringing Letty home, and most of all thank you for fast cars!
