Fast Five, from director Justin Lin, is imbecilic, illogical and interminable.
Oh yeah, it also has a negative side. That would be the lamentable decision to transform this testosterone-injected totem into just another heist series.
It’s now a decade and four sequels past the flash of “B” movie brilliance that was the original film, The Fast and the Furious. Remember that one? It was just about the cars, stupid.
This time out, with the action shifted to Rio de Janeiro, there are still hot cars, hotter women and plenty of burnt rubber. The wheels have completely come off this once great idea.
