Fast and Furious 6 tells about the next developments after the successful $100 million heist in Rio (Brazil) in Fast Five . Dom and Brian and their team members spread out all over the world. Their life is not easy when they have to hide and hide away from their homeland.
Meanwhile, Hobbs is tracking a criminal organization consisting of experienced drivers and mercenaries across 12 countries led by Owen Shaw. The surprising thing is that this crime boss’s deputy is Dom’s supposedly dead girlfriend – Letty.
The only way to stop this criminal gang is to defeat them on the streets. So Hobbs asked Dom to regroup his car fleet in London (England). In return, Dom’s entire group will have a clean record and won’t have to go on the run.
It can be said that up to this point, Fast & Furious 6 is the most attractive, most dramatic, most explosive and also “craziest” film in the Fast and Furious series . Action scenes are pushed with high intensity and dizzying frequency. The film’s “introduction” is quite quick, immediately leading the audience into the top action scenes. This is also the film that marks the farewell of talented director Justin Lin with the Fast & Furious series . And this director did the two most wonderful things in part 6.
First, it is connecting the characters and movie situations from the previous parts to drive the action in the next part. The film parts have a close connection and plot logic but are also very independent and easy to follow for audiences who have not had the opportunity to watch the previous 5 parts.
Second, Lin gave Fast and Furious 6 a truly “scary” and admirable pace. Almost no moment in the movie is dull, the action sequences continue without stopping. The action sequences are also longer and more intense than all five previous films. Including the scene with the Flip Car – considered a destroyer on the street, capable of wiping out anything that blocks its progress on the way.
The filmmakers revealed that this Flip Car is a real design that took a lot of effort. The acrobatic and car crash scenes in the movie were actually created by this car, not by computer effects. Or we can also mention action scenes with tanks and airplanes that are extremely majestic and eye-catching.

Of course, along with the expansion of the action scenes comes the story of logic being thrown out… the window! If in the previous parts of Fast & Furious , our characters were simply ordinary people, with superior driving skills, now, in part 6, their powers are more expanded. a lot, in addition to driving skills, the ability to use weapons is equally superb. They can even… fly in the air with the endurance of a superman!
However, perhaps no audience is bothered by the illogicality here, on the contrary, they laugh more. Besides, isn’t this irrationality always a strangely reasonable one that is often repeated in Hollywood’s entertaining action blockbusters?
Besides the eye-catching action scenes, Fast and Furious 6 also sends the audience a very “love” story. Family elements run throughout this film. The members of Dom’s car team are willing to live and die for each other. The return of the character Letty but on a different front line is also like an emotional challenge for the remaining characters. And Dom’s words were the clearest proof of their decision: “We don’t turn our backs on our families even if they do that to us!”.
With Fast and Furious 6 , Justin Lin has truly created a Fast and Furious movie that is more than fans could ever imagine. It’s more suspenseful, dramatic, satisfying, funnier and crazier than all the previous movies combined, and it would be a shame if you don’t enjoy the movie some evening this week!
