Fast Five Behind The Scenes Videos:
The Fast and Furious series is one of the strangest franchises in existence. After a financially successful albeit shoddy launch, Universal lost one of its stars to a terrible sequel and nearly killed the franchise when it lost the other and moved to Japan. Then the confusingly titled Fast and Furiouserupted in a big way, ensuring the franchise, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker several more sequels for the years to come.
Absurdly long, absurdly over the top and absurdly absurd, “Five Five” — the fifth movie in the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, still manages to be more fun than any movie with its outrageous carbon footprint has any right to be.
“Furious” director Justin Lin is perfectly at home in this franchise, now, staging a jaw-dropping opener in which super sports cars are stolen from a moving train. He keeps the picture clipping along for about an hour, but bogs down as he runs out of things to do with the cars. The players are quite comfy in their roles, which can be both crowd-pleasing and deathly dull as drama.
