Fast and Furious 6 – Date Night Sorted

Daddy E and I try to fit a date night in at least once a month, doing something together without Miss Roo around is really nice and it gives us the time to get glammed up and talk about something other than Moshi Monsters, Skylanders or Tree Fu Tom.  We often go for a meal or to the movies to catch up on the latest releases and having just scanned the list of forthcoming films I can already see that our date night for May is sorted as it sees the release of Fast and Furious 6, the final part of the Fast and Furious movies.

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6.  Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favourites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by bad-ass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe.  But their inability to return home and living forever on the run has left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organisation of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez).  The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London.  Payment?  Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time.  He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.

Fast and Furious 6 Extended Trailer

I’ve been made to sit through every other Fast and Furious release by Daddy E thanks to his love of cars and my desire for a peaceful life, but it’s not too bad as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker aren’t exactly ‘difficult’ to look at.  So no doubt come May 22nd when the film goes on general release I shall be settling down with popcorn and my other half to enjoy the final installment of high octane car chasing adventures.
