'Fast Five' Review Roundup & Trailer
Fast Five Reviews are Positive: "It Is What It Is"
If you're up for seeing Fast Five on the big screen, it means you are a fan of at least two of the following:
- Vin Diesel
- Dwayne "The Rock Johnson"
- Pimped-out cars
- Kicking the laws of physics in the groin
- Spitting in the face of the law of gravity
- Paul Walker
So that means you don't give a crap about reviews, but here are a few Fast Five reviews anyway.
Capone at Ain't It Cool News gives Fast Five a thumbs-up, praising director Justin Lin's propensity to inject each new chase "with just a little more speed, destruction, noise, and general excitement."
Entertainment Weekly calls Fast Five "high-octane trash", and means it in a good way.
Mick LaSalle at The Chron says that the latest F&F flick is better than its immediate predecessors, but that Justin Lin hasn't figured out how to use Vin Diesel to his true potential.
Roger Ebert praises the "convention of reckless drivers" as "sheer, preposterous and nonstop impossible action".
The Toronto Globe & Mail says that Fast Five is full of "adolescent guy date histrionics – screaming tires, snappy putdowns and [...]bodies beautiful in Band-Aid bikinis". Still, that's worth two out of five stars.
The New York Post dismisses Fast Five as rubbish, though, too long and with not enough fast driving.
