Fast & Furious 6

Rated 2.0

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew of outlaw street racers (Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, et al.) are recruited by a government agent (Dwayne Johnson) to bring down a mastermind specializing in vehicular crime (Luke Evans). Has there ever been a sequel with “6” in the title that was any good? Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country maybe, but besides that? Director Justin Lin jam-packs the screen with blatantly implausible car chases and fight scenes that blithely break every law of traffic and physics, interspersed with the growling repartee that passes for comic relief in this testosterone-drenched franchise (the biggest laugh, though, comes at the end, with a prim, don't-try-this-at-home disclaimer). Fans will not be disappointed. And God help us, No. 7 is on the way.
