So, you know how Hobbs (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) was a cop chasing these guys back in the last film? And they end up teaming up, and the good cop realises that the bad guys are not the most bad guys and lets them go after they sort out the really bad guys? Well, guess what? There are more really bad guys, and the good cop needs the crew (you know, all the fast car drivers from the previous films) to sort it out.
Ridiculous, implausible and totally wonderful. I love it. I don’t want my action films to be at all realistic. I want them to be Mission Impossible and Fast and the Furious. (I mean, ideally I’d like to see some more action films with kick arse strong women at the fore, but until Hollywood realises that we want more in the style of The Long Kiss Goodnight, give me these). At some point, things can’t keep getting bigger and faster. But there’s two more out there and so let’s see where it goes.
