Oh boy. Once again we leave our brains at the door as Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across twelve countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all. Our reward? Another breezy barrage of brilliant car chases and cheesy one-liners as our favourite herd of hirelings smashes its way through the streets of London and Spain.
Only the stuffiest of people will find reason to complain. We can’t deny it has its flaws, and it doesn’t quite match Fast 5 for conflict or action, but by adding a flying headbutt, the most ridiculously cool mid-air snatch and a tank to proceedings, we’ll forgive any shortcomings. The Fast franchise has become one to savour, so by adding a welcome cameo at the end of this instalment we are once again looking forward to another brainless actioner with some of the best car chases and banter you are ever likely to witness. Tej Parker sums it up perfectly; Fast 6 is awkward but sexy as hell. DW
