If you had told me in 2001 that The Fast and Furious would've spawned six movies with over 1.5 billion in box office reciepts I would've had you committed but here we are in 2013 with another Vin Diesel movie about fast cars. This one picks up right where Fast Five left off.

wikipedia posted:

After the events of Fast Five, professional criminal Dominic Toretto and his crew are wealthy, but their criminal records prevent them from returning to their home country. Following his attempts to apprehend them, Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs offers the crew a deal; he will give them all full pardons for their crimes if they help him take down a lethally skilled mercenary organisation led by a criminal mastermind and his ruthless second-in-command, Dominic's thought-dead lover Letty Ortiz.

After Fast Five I'm 100% convinced that this will be amazing and I'm looking forward to fast seven where the team has to steal the moon or whatever craziness needed to pull off whatever insane stunt that will look awesome in a trailer.

Since Han (probably) dies in Tokyo Drift you might be wondering why Sung Kang in Fast Five/this movie well to answer your question the chronological order of the fast and furious franchise is-
The Fast and the Furious followed by
2 Fast 2 Furious followed by
Fast and Furious followed by
Fast Five followed by
Fast and Furious Six
(between now and when the franchise is no longer profitable)
Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift

These movies are escalating like the Peter vs Chicken fights. At first it was just racing some riced out civics but pretty soon space shuttles are going to get involved.

Super stoked for this movie.

Efc: which of the films was the turning point where the series found its groove and figured itself out? I want to say it was Tokyo Drift, but it may have been as late as Fast5.

I'd say Fast & Furious. It takes itself a little too seriously at times, but for the most part it knows it's completely silly but still plays it completely straight.

Tokyo Drift has the right idea, and Lucas Black's bumpkin character is fun to watch, but without the original stars it just isn't the same.

The original is still my favorite though.

It's quite a feat for an original franchise (not based off an existing property)- to have the fifth film be the best one. Can any other film franchise hold that title? Really can't wait for part 6 and trailer has me pumped.

Based on the escalation of 4 and 5, and now the trailer, this could be the most ludicrous, OTT movie of all time.

And I can't wait. Superheroes? Pfft. Car-flips and huge bald men growling at each other are where it's at.

Fast Five was amazing, and if this is anything like that movie was, it'll probably be my favorite movie of the year. I never thought I'd say that about a Fast & Furious movie, but yeah, Fast Five was ridiculously entertaining.

Genuinely can't wait for this, looking forward to it more than any other 'big' film this year. And it's not just me, Fast 5 basically garnered a truckload of goodwill from everyone I know that saw it, none of us expected anything much but it turned out to be sooooo much fun, and with a refreshingly diverse cast too.

The Rock is really what has brought me back into this franchise. He's bigger now, and is throwing a jumping punch in the trailer, sign me the gently caress up.

Anyone notice in Fast 5 just how much sweatier The Rock was then everyone else? We got a big kick out of it, he always looked like a PA sprayed him down before his scenes.

I'll repeat what I said from the trailer thread.

quote:

I'm serious when I say this: The Gina Carano vs. Michelle Rodriguez fight could very well top the Vin Diesel/Dwayne Johnson fight from the last movie. Much like that fight, these are two action stars who could otherwise star in their own solo movies, and are still at their physical prime. I hope they planned this fight with the same HOLY poo poo mentality.
I'm not a car guy by any means, but Fast Five is my personal favorite action movie from the past few years. I'd definitely want to do midnight, if it's possible to avoid all the annoying teenagers who'll also see this. But who am I kidding? Fast Five brought out my inner 15-year-old.

My favorite part of these movies is the parking lot after opening night, when all the teenagers try to do stupid poo poo in their moms' cars. Does anyone have that video of the cops busting a street race after a Fast Five showing?

On a similar note, someone else pointed out how diverse the cast is too, and it's worth mentioning again. The only white guy with a major role is Paul Walker.

Not that it necessarily means anything, but Fast Five passed the Bechtel test too, in the scene where Jordanna Brewster finds out she's pregnant.

As much as I love Fast Five, I'm not going to hold its depiction fo women in high regard. Remember it's the movie with the "dat rear end" handprint scene, and had quite a few silly male gaze moments that directly pandered to horny young teen boys. I'll just say from a "minority perspective" standpoint that it does to a decent amount to relax my guard from "looking" for problems and just allows me to enjoy the power fantasy guilt-free to a certain degree. It also helps that knowing that Justin Lin has been pretty candid about his opinions of how Hollywood has depicted Asian American men in the past.

Although it's not much, I do think it's good that they're unfridging Michelle Rodriguez. I hope the Carano/Rodriguez fight won't go the lazy "this is hot" route but rather "Who would really win in this badass vs. badass fight?" route.

One thing I really loved about Fast Five was the Vin Diesel/Rock fight, because holy poo poo it turns out that Vin Diesel is actually tiny. I thought they would shoot it in a way that made them look like they were on equal footing, but nope, he's totally dwarfed by the Rock. Also, I enjoyed that Fast Five was basically Modern Warfare 2: The Movie + some fast cars. I absolutely hated the first two movies, and now I feel like since seeing Fast Five this is probably the best action franchise in town.

Uhh you're joking right? Mr. John Singleton saved it with 2 Fast 2 Furious. Okay the first one was a little hokey. Local PD, some guys stealing some stereos and DVD players. Small time.

2 ups the stakes and sets the pace for the rest of the series, plus, Ajax should be in everything. They trade in their garish Mitsubishis for a loving Yenko. Tyrese chews scenery, Rutger Hauer lends a nice presence, and Luda is used sparingly enough to be entertaining.

3 kind of stands apart since it necessarily resets the stakes back down to a smaller level, but I like it. Plus who wouldn't want Han for a best friend?

I'm glad Tyrese will be getting another paycheck from this series. Justin Lin, too.

Also, if you haven't seen "Better Luck Tomorrow," go see it.

I really don't think 2Fast was the film that getting it into the current groove that it is in now. The first was and still is a great popcorn movie and 2Fast tried to fill in what the first one was missing, but it was just too over loaded for my liking. I mean for the love of god, a PT Loser rolls out of the warehouse when Brian and Rome are trying to avoid the cops. If that doesn't tell you that the film didn't get it to where it is, I don't know what does. Fast and Furious is the film that got the series to where it is today and is the closest to the first. You don't see the darkness that was in the first in 2Fast, mainly because of the fact that film switch from the dark grittiness of Los Angeles, to the bright, fun Miami, which kind of killed the vibe.

The same thing happened with Tokyo Drift. I haven't really seen this installment all the way through yet, mainly because of the fact that I don't really consider it to be part of the series (mainly because of the fact that I don't understand where it fits in with the other five films), because it's so brightly colored and feels somewhat wonky compared to the others. Fast and Furious is where the series really started to find it's groove. The darkness that is found in the first one, is found here again. Granted, it's much more darker than the first, but the same idea is there.

On this note, is it just me or does the action in these films keep getting crazier and crazier as the series goes on. I'm still waiting for a massive cross country Gumball style race cross country that will be insane. It's going to happen sooner of later.

If I recall, most of the action in F&F was car or racing based while Fast Five was really the first attempt to make it into a fully fledged action movie with fistfights, gun battles, foot chases through a favela etc as well as car-based scenes. And the main plot was a heist which while involving cars, was nothing to do with racing or smuggling using cars as they did in F&F. Fast Five was really the departing point for the series.

I like the first movie and I think it stands ok on its own. However, it's more character-driven (haha) as the premise is the cops trying to take down a ring of stereo thieves, which is smaller scale when held up against later plots. And I agree with you about the cars. It's funny that you mention that scene, because that's when Brian and Rome trade in their Eclipse and Evo for the Yenko Camaro and Charger, which is what I was trying to highlight as a transition.

And yeah the first one was darker (although still smaller scale), but I think that reflected the more 'broken' nature of the characters at that point in their lives, as well as the shift in focus from 'the crew' to Brian and Rome, the smiles bros.

Yeah, you really have to think about Tokyo Drift as almost a separate movie, or really a sequel to Better Luck Tomorrow, but not to a Fast & Furious movie, but I like how it stands on its own. It resets the premise so it is again smaller scale which allows Mike Winchell to have a meaningful arc.

And yes, the stakes have to keep increasing.

Long story short this is going to be amazing and I hope they keep letting Justin Lin pump these films out. They are at this point basically my favorite movie franchise. The whole series takes a swift departure once Justin Lin takes over as the director and producer. Forget any other considerations of what changed, he came and made it amazing.

And Tokyo Drift is the best one. It is all about racing, without the car racing there is no movie. The rest of them are other crime genres; heist films, on the run, theft mystery, but they could all exist without the cars. Posted longer thoughts in prior threads on this topic, so I'll leave it at that.
