Fast Five [Blu-ray/DVD] [Canadian]
Region 1 USA/CA (
Director Justin Lin (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT, FAST & FURIOUS) returns to the helm for this adrenaline-charged sequel reuniting series stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for their biggest thrill ride yet. With the police in hot pursuit and wanted fugitive Dom (Diesel) in tow, Brian (Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) make their way to Rio, and realize they've run out of luck. In order to earn their freedom, they'll have to pull off their biggest job yet. After assembling a crack team of the top racers in Brazil, the gang prepares to confront the crooked businessman who seeks to silence them forever. Meanwhile, unstoppable federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has assembled his own team, an intimidating group of top cops whose sole mission is to capture Dom, Brian, and Mia by whatever means possible. But as the race heats up, Hobbs loses his ability to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Now, in order to prevent the lawless trio from being turned into roadkill before he can arrest them, Luke puts his pedal to the metal, and begins to rely more on his killer instinct than his police training.

"Directed by the flashy and gifted Justin Lin..." -- Grade: B+
"Rio works well as a backdrop...a footrace across rooftops and down alleyways of a hillside shantytown is one of the most visually riveting action sequences in recent memory."
Los Angeles Times
4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith some of the most exhilarating action sequences the screen has seen in years."
3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's Lin's elaborately planned and eye-popping automobile stunts - which avoid artificial-looking CGI whenever possible -- that butter this movie's bread."
3 stars out of 5 -- "Lin knows his crowd. A visit to Rio's street-racing scene shows he hasn't forgotten the franchise's origins..."
"Lin, as he showed in TOKYO DRIFT, does have a knack for poetic images....Lin also keeps the movie's plot intricacies clicking along at a reasonable pace."
"[D]irector Justin Lin and his editors have honed a very decent clutch of fights, chases and gun battles..."
Sight and Sound
3 stars out of 4 -- "The movie is made of sheer, preposterous and nonstop impossible action....A skillfully assembled 130 minutes at the movies..."
"Inventive action sequences, deft stunt work and breathtaking cinematography make for revved-up fun."
