Fast and Furious 6

Theatrical Release: May 24, 2013
Fast and Furious 6


Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

Dove Review

This movie is, as you would expect, fast paced. In fact, it opens in Spain with a race and rarely slows down after that. Brian (Paul Walker) has just become a father and the old team hopes to live the quiet life of retirement (following the race). But Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) asks Dom to re-assemble the whole team to stop a bad guy name Shaw and to find out about his former love who is, to his amazement, still alive.

Despite the impressive action sequences including an extended chase scene in tunnels, and likable actors, the movie falls short of being family friendly in the sex, language and violence categories. We unfortunately cannot award this one our Dove Seal.
