Millennium Post


Brazilian bust between white sheets. Private jet with the words 'It's Roman, bitches' painted on it. Tropical weather. Cool cars. No cops trailing you. No fear of jail. Million dollars or more to burn. Can life get any better?

Wrong question. When living and driving recklessly is the motto, who wants a better life. For Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and gang, it is about owning a ten-second car. The boys had thought their thrill days are over. Brian (Paul Walker) has just had a baby with Dom's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Dom is bedding a blonde. Life is a breeze at Canary Island. There is one memory though that refuses to die. Love of Dom's life. Letty. Lost forever.

Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) was shot after a car crash in Fast & Furious 4 when Dom was away. Life has not been the same since.

So when Federal Agent Hobbs (Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson) comes calling with fresh pictures of Letty and seeks Dom's help to put down a group of ruthlessly skilled mercenaries that has spread menace across '4 continents and 12 countries', Dom has to push the pedal once more. And, life's a chase again.

Letty, memory deleted after accident, is now second-in-command to the leader of the bad pack, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). She is tougher than before. So can Dom and his dudes outsmart Shaw and get Letty back? Zero points for guessing.

The roads are curvier than Beyonce. The cars stuff for a race junkie's wet dream. Between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, there's enough muscle to turn any villain into putty. And the action sequences are bigger and better. And if you get off on girl-on-girl action, there's a tube station fight between Michelle Rodriguez and Gina Carano that would make the men blush.

Carano is a mixed martial artiste and had played the lead in Steven Soderbergh's spy thriller Haywire. She has the moves for a long haul in action movies.

Fast & Furious 6
is for Fast & Furious fans. Won't make much sense if you haven't seen the earlier ones. If you have, enjoy the ride.
