Product Description of Fast Five (Two-Disc DVD/Blu-ray Combo + Digital Copy in DVD Packaging)

Get ready for “five times the action, excitement and fun” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV) as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed. Fugitive Dom Toretto (Diesel) partners with former cop Brian O’Conner (Walker) on the opposite side of the law in exotic Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There they are hunted by a high-powered U.S. strike force led by its toughest Fed (Dwayne Johnson) and an army of corrupt cops working for a ruthless drug kingpin. To gain their freedom and win this ultimate high-stakes race, they must pull off one last job – an insane heist worth $100 million.

More is less is generally the case with blockbuster sequels these days, with budgetary bloat often overshadowing the qualities that made the original film click with audiences. The Fast and the Furious movies, however, somehow manage to spin doughnuts around this concept of diminishing returns, with each installment becoming more ridiculously entertaining. Fast Five may be the most overblown entry in the series to date (which is saying quite a bit), but there’s a dunderheaded earnestness to it that’s hard to resist. This time around, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and Co. go for an Ocean’s 11 vibe–swapping out the Armani and martinis for Ed Hardy and Muscle Milk–as the gang go on the lam in Rio following a botched train heist. On the lookout for one final big score, they set their sights on bankrupting the local kingpin (an admirably straight-faced Joaquim de Almeida), calling in seemingly every character in the mythos for help. Stuff goes vroom and boom in mass quantities. Perhaps realizing that the formula may be in danger of reaching its shelf date, returning director Justin Lin here livens things up by bringing in Dwayne Johnson as a federal agent with a fearsome grudge. When he and Diesel eventually throw down, the building-busting destruction recalls the immortal War of the Gargantuas. Viewers in the mood for a little logic with their explosions may initially scoff, but by the time the final chase scene rolls around (an outrageously sustained kinetic set piece that would make Wile E. Coyote proud) it’s tough to keep back the grins. Heaven only knows what the next sequel will bring (Send them back to colonial times? A race against Cthulhu in outer space? Pit them against Dick Dastardly and Muttley?), but there’s every confidence that these folks will somehow pull it off.

5Fast Five brings the family back for one final job and a action packed thrill ride!

By Porfie Medina

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster team up again one final time for some more heart pounding adrenaline action. This movie takes place after Fast and Furious. The film brings the crew back together in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for one last job to get their freedom before disappearing forever. Some of the previous stars through the past Fast and Furious films return, including Tyrese Gibson, (Roman Pearce – 2 Fast 2 Furious) Ludacris (Tej – 2 Fast 2 Furious), Gal Gadot, (Gisele – Fast and Furious) Matt Schulze (Vince -The Fast and Furious) and Sung Kang (Han – Tokyo Drift) all return for one of the most action packed Fast and Furious movies ever. They are faced with a tough federal agent Luke Hoobs (the Rock) who will stop at nothing to hunt them down. I will not give away any more but, I’m happy to say Fast Five does not disappoint. This Movie is action packed from start to finish, and even though it has many over the top moments it is still one heck of an enjoyable action ride. Just like the original film that started it all, this new and final installment will also have you on the edge of your seat. Don’t listen to bitter critics, if you like a fun entertaining movie to take you away from your life for a few hours check this movie out! Im going to miss Paul and Vin and all the crew, but will be forever thankful for all the awesome Fast films they brought us and am happy to watch them again and again on DVD or blu-ray! Fast Five [Blu-ray]

Be sure and stay for the end credits for a unexpected twist.

5The Best of the Franchise

By TechGuy77

This is just a great film. It’s fun, it’s loud, it’s got story, and it’s got gorgeous girls and amazing cars. That’s the recipe for an awesome blockbuster. I’d heard the hype, and had always planned to see it, but I didn’t know it would be as good as it was. it was just bada**. I came to Amazon the minute it was over to try and pre-order the Blu-ray–it is that good. Sure, it’s cliche a lot of the time, but cliche doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If you liked the original film then this is right on par with that–I think it’s even better.I can’t wait for the 6th one to come out!

    Fast Five is a great installment to the franchise. Bringing back everyone from the earlier movies made the movie that much better, and made it 2 hour thrill ride, and a great theater experience. I have been waiting for the DVD release, just so I could enjoy it on my entertainment center. Working at DISH I have learned to take my television seriously, the better equipment you have the better your experience. I am just glad that I will have the new Blockbuster movie pass on Saturday, that way I can rent Fast Five when it comes out Tuesday using my DVD by mail service, which is just one of the great parts of the promotion just as Vin Diesel is part of the great cast of Fast Five, along with Vin, you have Paul Walker, and streaming movies on my television and pc of 3000+ titles, and then the supporting cast go for broke to win their freedom, just like the 20 channels pumping out movie after movie for you to watch. Check out the movie on Tuesday, and the best promotion for DISH subscribers on Saturday.
