    This unintentionally hilarious. It’s meta commentary and lines about how the legacy characters and being old cast members back had me in stitches. It just took me out of it. We know you’ve been doing the meta thing since the original, but this one felt flat and over done. It has some brutal moments and the ending is copy paste from the 96 film, but I got so bored of these films. Which is probably my own fault for cramming them in. It’s still better than 3 (200), but 4 (2011),Β did this film so much better.

    Guillermo del Toro is known for creating beautiful and visual stunning monsters and creatures. Whilst it’s lacking he usual creature designs, his signature is all over this beautiful looking film. DOP Dan Laustsen shows helps to make everything strike to your eyes. Backed by a great performance from Bradley Cooper, Rooney Mara and Willem Dafoe to name a few. But Cate Blanchett is fantastic. She steals every scene with a sinister smile.

    I love heist films. I love team up films. I really love Fast and Furious 5. It’s so god dam fun. Adding Dwayne Johnson was the best idea this franchise needed. It’s really this franchise that made him the modern acting star. Bringing the side characters for a heist, just brings me so much joy. The setting of Rio is the perfect playground for this film. This is the peak of the Fast and Furious franchise.

    Sometime thriller don’t hold up on repeat viewings. But I guess for searching you are always looking for something. The way it’s filmed through the lens of laptops, FaceTime calls, CCTV cameras, really extends the storytelling scope for me and I love how creative it gets. John Cho is fantastic. He deliverers the frantic and scared feelings of what David is going through. The score too is very fast and works so well with the film.
