Fast 5 - Movie Review

Last May 4, 2011 - I was able to watch a movie screening of the "Fast and the Furious 5: Rio Heist" during the TeleServ's Night-Out with the Bloggers event. Cinema 4 movie house of Gateway was packed with, well, obviously Bloggers. Familiar faces and even some of my runner-blogger mates were also present to check the speed of the cars tearing the Cinema screen.

The movie was full not just with action, but also some humor and wit that made us stretch our facial muscles as we laugh. The environment was so comfortable, I almost feel like we are but one family inside the Cinema. We are indeed - Bloggers alike!

So, just a quick review without going much into deeper details as I might be spoiling the story to those who have not yet seen the movie.

Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner
Vin Diesel as Dominic "Dom" Toretto
Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto
Gal Gadot as Gisele Harabo
Dwayne Johnson as Marshal Luke Hobbs
Elsa Pataky as Elena Neves
Joaquim de Almeida as Hernan Reyes
Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Tego Calderon, Matt Schulze, Don Omar

Personal Rating: 9 out of 10

During the car chase between the Cops, Reyes, and the "Team Rio", while Dom and O'Conner are pulling the bank vault from behind their car, I couldn't imagine how they managed to speed off and maneuver the car in such a high-speed and heavily loaded chase. My brain just keeps on telling me under the Physics law (my brain got refreshed about Physics from this movie), the vault should've already pulled them off the road and there's no way that they could escape that far with that load. Well that's a movie after all!

Aside from the action, very nice cars, effects, and the sexy presence of the Characters of Gal Gadot and Elsa Pataky, the teamwork and their love and valuing for family still touched me and made me thought however bad-ass a human can get, we still cannot judge the entirety of their character.

For a better read and review about this movie, I highly recommend the following sites:
