Action/Adventure, Suspense/Thriller

I can't decide what is more amazing: that six Fast & Furious films have been made, or that (Lord forgive me) they're somehow getting better. Franchise vanguard Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and others (character names irrelevant) are recruited out of wealthy hiding by returning fed agent Luke Hobbs (the ubiquitous Dwayne Johnson) to traverse Europe and take down a mirror-image car gang led by a former special ops soldier (Luke Evans). The bait? The baddies include Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), believed dead and buried two movies ago. Director Justin Lin helms his fourth film in the franchise, and with bigger budgets come eye-popping, gloriously 2D action sequences that violate all strata of law, including penal, physics and gravity. The plot is utterly mindless, although it feels almost intentionally so at times. But there's some cheeky wit at play, whether it's a conspicuous evocation of "007" or the muscle-bound Hobbs jokingly referred to as "Hulk" and "Samoan Thor." With more action than Iron Man 3 and more fun than Star Trek: Into Darkness, this is a summer movie that gives you your money's worth.
