Fast and Furious 6 is an action film, the sixth installment in the Fast and the Furious film series. It’s telling about a crew, who is following their successful Rio heist, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew of professional criminals have retired around the world: Dominic lives with Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky); his sister, Mia (Jordana Brewster), lives with Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and their son – Jack, Gisele Yahsar (Gal Gadot) and Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang) have moved to Hong Kong; Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej Parker (Chris Bridges) live in luxury.
Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and his partner, Riley Hicks (Gina Carano) investigate the destruction of a Russian military convoy by former British Special Forces soldier, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and his crew. Hobbs tracks down Dominic and persuades him to help taking down Shaw, after showing him a recent photo of the supposedly long-dead Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Dominic’s former girlfriend. Dominic gathers his crew together and they accept the mission in exchange for full amnesty for their past crimes, allowing them to return home to the United States; Mia and Elena remain with Jack. Dominic’s crew investigates about Shaw’s connections, and find out how Letty survived the explosion that was thought to have killed her. They also find out that Shaw is stealing components to create a Nightshade device which can disable power in an entire region. He intends to sell it to the highest bidder.
This whole movie is telling about a long, engaging chase, with a brilliant and unpredictable plot. I can’t describe too much about it, since it won’t be fun if I give spoilers. In the end, Dom and his crew manage to get the chip and bring it back to Hobbs to secure their amnesty, which leads Dominic and his team to return to the United States. Hobbs and Elena (now working with Hobbs) arrive to confirm the crews are free. The last part is showing Han is in a car chase in Tokyo. He is hit by an oncoming car, and his car explodes, killing him. The other car’s driver (Jason Statham) walks away from the scene and calls Dominic, leaving him a message: “You don’t know me, you’re about to…”
There’ll be Fast and Furious 7 for sure, and I can hardly wait! This movie is one of a long series. Each movie – from one to six, has connection to each other. This one should be the one before the third movie – Tokyo Drift. And I guess the seventh movie will be the sequel of Tokyo Drift. It’ll be cool!!
Actually, when I watched this movie, I haven’t watched the prequels. But, I didn’t get lost during the movie. It does have a connection with the prequels, but it’s all explained in the movie, so I wasn’t lost. Each movie has its own main conflict, and they’re all engaging and genius! What an awesome action movie! I shivered along the whole scenes! Good-looking and talented actors played awesome roles really well, makes it such a great movie. Worth to watch!
