‘Fast Five’ Plot Details

Posted September 14th, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Hold on to your seats folks. Universal Pictures have released the first official synopsis for the next ‘Fast & Furious’ film, Fast Five. Looks like ‘The Rock’ will be joining the cast. Lovely…

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.

I’ve always been a fan of these movies. But then again I enjoy any Vin Diesel movie not named The Pacifier. I like the idea of characters from the previous films reuniting for this one.  One name missing is Lucas Black from ‘Tokyo Drift’. I thought maybe they’d squeeze him into the storyline somehow. Maybe he just wasn’t enough of a hard ass.  Fast Five will hit theaters June 10th, 2011
