The best thing about Sunday night was the footage released for Justin Lin‘s Fast & Furious 6. I waited all night for the brief spot to go live and I was more than impressed. I’m actually really looking forward to this one, because it seems like Lin and company finally understands how to make these Fast/Furious films entertaining and enjoyable without completely stripping them down too much.
I know some didn’t care for Fast Five because it switched its focus to be more like an Ocean’s film than a Fast/Furious film, but I welcome the change, because now we’ve got the best working modern day action stars blowing shit up and making it look good behind the wheel of a fast car. I like the heists and I like that these new films actually have plots to follow.
Fast & Furious 6 looks like Fast Five on steroids and that my friend is a big compliment. They’ve added a more recognizable villain this time around (Luke Evans) and they’ve teamed Dwayne Johnson with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and the rest of the gang. They’ve also added MMA superstar Gina Carano in for good measures.
This is going to be fun…
Today we’ve got a brand-new three and a half minute trailer, which lays out the plot a little stronger, while still showing us some fluid car sequences and a whole lot of action. Can I buy my ticket yet?
Fast & Furious 6 opens on May 24th, 2013.
