Get ready for five times the fury as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a full-speed reunion of all-stars from every chapter of the explosive Fast and Furious franchise. In Fast Five, fugitive Dom Toretto (Diesel) partners with former cop, Brian O’Conner (Walker), on the opposite side of the law in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There they are hunted by a high-powered U.S. strike force led by its toughest fed, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), and an army of corrupt cops working for a ruthless drug kingpin. To gain their freedom and win this ultimate high-stakes race, they must pull off one last job – an insane heist worth $100 million. And their only chance at survival is to do what they do best: drive cars really fast! One of the wildest, most absurdly fun action films of the last decade (one that leaves reality and the laws of physics in the dust), Fast Five offers up major big screen thrills for both die-hard fans and the merely furious-curious! Also starring Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Elsa Pataky and Joaquim de Almeida. (Dir. by Justin Lin, 2011, USA, 130 mins., Rated PG-13)
