As bad as the first Fast and the Furious was, you would think that its sequels would be direct-to-video shelf-stuffers. But oddly enough, after the second film, theyve actually gotten better. This is the fifth film hence the title and its the best one yet. Theres still plenty of posing from the male stars, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and with Dwayne The Rock Johnson joining the cast you know the posturing has increased exponentially. There are still buckets of bad lines and a second-rate plot. Nothing about this film is going to make you smarter but the action is kick-ass. The franchise changing from a total waste of film to watchable movies mustve come from director Justin Lin taking over the reigns for the third installment, Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Lin is scheduled to direct the sixth chapter of this greased-torso saga lets hope he hires better writers to tighten-up the plots and lose the beefy one-liners. I hate to say it but worth a watch.
