Fast Five Steals Box Office Sales

The chronicle continues. After four other Fast and The Furious movies, director Justin Lin is still at it. April 29th, Fast Five hit the screens with an all star cast made up of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and many others.

Starting out with a bang, the movie began with the prison breakout of star Dominic Toretto (Diesel) orchestrated by costars Brian O’Conner (Walker) and Mia (Brewster). After the breakout the three are on the run from the US and make their way to Rio de Janeiro. The main characters, once in Rio, get caught up in bad “job”, where they steal a car housing a flash drive containing the locations of the money laundering sites of the underground ruler of Rio, Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Once they cross Reyes the group is not only on the run from the American police, but now also a Rio leader. While on the run it comes out that Mia is pregnant with O’Conner’s child. With this new plot development, the three main characters assemble a team to take down Reyes and steal all of his laundered money. In the end, the American secret agent leader, Agent Hobbs (The Rock), joins forces with Toretto and his team in taking down Reyes.

The movie combined great graphics, decent acting, a rather suspenseful plotline and amazing car chases. This movie was an overall success.
