Fast & Furious 6
    2013-08-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    《速度与激情6》

    Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster

    Director: Justin Lin

    THE latest outing in Universal’s hard-driving “Fast and Furious” series adds some slightly dodgy new elements to the mix but still delivers what should be enough macho swagger and over-the-top automobile action to keep fans of the franchise happy.

    The only question is whether fan satisfaction will translate into as big a box office take as the US$626m — two-thirds of it from international markets — scored two years ago by the franchise-rejuvenating “Fast Five.”

    Directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan (who also directed and wrote the franchise’s last three entries), “Furious 6” brings back the stars of “Fast Five,” returns fan favorite Michelle Rodriguez (from the 2001 original) to the cast and adds Brit Luke Evans (from “Clash of the Titans”) and Gina Carano (the mixed martial arts fighter who starred in Haywire) to the talented line-up.

    The plot has street racer Dom (franchise stalwart Vin Diesel) and his team pulled out of luxurious retirement by federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) to go to London to combat a criminal mastermind (Evans) and his own team of car demons. The twist is that the bad guys include Dom’s former love Letty (Rodriguez), who, it turns out, didn’t really die in an earlier episode but just lost her memory.

    The Don/Letty subplot is one of the sentimental additions that slows the film down and extends its running time past the two-hour mark. Thankfully, the rest of the action is more in keeping with the film’s B-movie roots.

    The handful of action set pieces include an impressive car-tank battle on a Spanish motorway and the climactic battle between a cargo plane full of bad guys and the hot rod driving good guys. Notable, but not easily recognizable, locations include London’s Piccadilly Circus and Battersea Power Station.

    A coda to the main action features a surprise cameo that suggests the franchise will continue with a British presence.

    The movie is now being screened in Shenzhen. (SD-Agencies)
