"Fast Five" is the fifth installment in "Fast And The Furious"
film series. This action packed sequel starred Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and
takes place in Rio De Janeiro, Brasil. "Fast Five" is reminiscent of "Oceanís Eleven"
as it is about a
group of criminals planning a heist. Only this film is about robbing a drug
dealer, which is, how do I put it, dumb and dangerous.
The movie also stars, Joaquim de Almeida, as the primary villain, who was also a prominent player
in the film
"Clear And Present Danger" and connected to the drug trade in said
movie. Ironically "Fast Five" ripped
off a scene from "Clear And Present Danger" regarding U.S. Government SUVs
being sandwiched on a foreign street, then systematically blown up and shot up. "Fast
Five" was somewhat entertaining, but hardly original.
