Movie Review: Fast Five (2011)

I’ve seen the first one and now this. These films are stupid. Men in muscle t-shirts growl at each other in Rio. Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is the leader of the elite service of the DSS and is chasing down Dom and co Old Testament style. Dom (Vin Diesel, who still can’t act) and co are morally tarnished figures who revel in their self-righteousness. There are fight scenes. Dom isn’t an oppositional hero he is a thug. Brian (the late Paul Walker) is a bland pretty boy. The villain (Joaquim De Almeda) is a one note baddie. Dom and co carry out a ridiculous heist as they drive really fast around Rio. This was dumb, loud and dim. The end credits contain a PSA about not copying any of the car play depicted in this movie which is ironic considering Walker’s fate.
