Fast Five (Fast and the Furious 5) synopsis online

FastandtheFurious-DodgeCharger.jpgThe synopsis for Fast Five, the fifth in the Fast and the Furious series which seems to drop the franchise name somewhat, has arrived online so we finally know how they're going to stretch out the story once again.

Oh I'm being overly harsh because I do love these films, and not just because I love fast and just plain noisy cars, but because they are fun, they are entertaining, and you really can't argue with that. No, really you can't.

This time though Vin Diesel does sound like he's going to have some serious competition, not in the car department but in the muscle one, where we see Dwayne Johnson arriving.

The plot synopsis for Fast Five, or Fast and the Furious 5, comes from Universal Pictures through Latino Review:

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey...before someone else runs them down first.

Well, it doesn't sound a lot different to the last film. At least this is their last job, no really, it is their job. Really. I mean there's nothing in the word six to match with the Fast and the Furious title is there?

Still I know it's going to have fast cars and posturing galore with some insane stunts. Yeah I'll still watch it because I love that sort of thing and the films don't try and make out to be more than they are, which I really do appreciate these days.
