Since Dom and Brian's

to return home and 
living forever on the 
lam have left their lives 
incomplete. Meanwhile, 
Hobbs has been tracking 
an organization of lethally 
skilled mercenary drivers 
across 12 countries, 
whose mastermind is 
aided by a ruthless 
second-in-command 
revealed to be the love 
Dom thought was dead, 
Letty. The only way to 
stop the criminal outfit is 
to outmatch them at

Review
With every new installment, these films just get bigger, badder and faster. This is definitely the case with FAST & FURIOUS 6. Here, I've finally done a critique to the latest movie of the F&F series, mixture of stunts, car chases and action have never been so spectacular as it has in this enjoyable film. I note that specifically, the whole plot is encapsulating and the climax is tense and waywardly brilliant. This movie cements itself as a contender for possibly the greatest link of THE FAST & THE FURIOUS saga and there are a few missteps out of all the six movies, this has grossed the most dollars of the franchise to date. The return of Dwayne Johnson has helped to revitalise the series once again with an even tougher crew; he is now officially part of the team of superstars that made this fuel-injected spectacle what it is. There is the added surprise of Michelle Rodriguez back as the tough female character from the first and fourth originals and Luke Evans spectacularly portrays an interesting foe with a malicious mind with wicked intentions.

Unlike the predecessor of the sequel FAST & FURIOUS 5 (click here), this isn't about heist plotting, rather, the film was more about a cat and mouse chase between the villain and the heroes and race against time in all odds. The sixth instalment is a mother-load of fun and tense action and this is another best movie of 2013 and this in my opinion was the second best of F&F PERIOD!

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
