Fast & Furious 6

So I have a feeling that there are a majority of people that just see cheesy action flick written all over this movie. And the fact that this is the 6th movie in the franchise so they are just beating a dead horse. And they're right. However, that doesn't mean that this movie is not a great time.

So embrace the cheese, embrace the moments that make you say, "c'mon! There is no way that could happen!" So if you let go of that and just enjoy an action movie with fun 1 liners and big dudes beating the hell out of each other, then you will enjoy yourself. Now, I will admit, I was totally against the 4th installment in the series. And then when Fast Five came out, I was like.......seriously? But I forced myself to watch them and you know what? They're not half bad? They are fun. There is some serious action involved and I have a good time watching it. Fast & Furious 6 is not a movie about fast cars and street racing. Neither is Fast Five for that matter. It's more of a team of thieves trying to rob the rich or in this movie, trying to earn their freedom. Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson have cemented themselves as huge action stars. And they definitely deliver. Not to mention, there is a great fight scene between ex MMA fighter Gina Carano and Michelle Rodiguez.  

Just watch this movie. And #'s 4 and 5. Just forget about seeing anything that will earn Oscar nominations and you'll remember why you watch movies. Because they are entertaining. Fast & Furious 6 does just that. Entertain you. I, personally am excited for # 7. Yes indeed.
