If 2011's Fast Five would've simply followed the "cars, chicks, and one-liners" motif of the previous The Fast and the Furious movies, we wouldn't have been all that excited by it, frankly. But director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan wisely mixed things up, focusing less on whips and more on an Ocean's Eleven-styled heist gambit, and, as a result, Fast Five was one of the year's biggest surprises.
Unbroken formulas need not be fixed, so both Lin and Morgan are back in action for The Fast and the Furious 6, as is new franchise star Dwayne Johnson as the bruising Secret Service Agent. Not much is know about the plot's specifics, but let's venture to guess that Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and the rest of their homes piss off the authorities while pulling fast ones on some crime boss. And newcomer Gina Carano gets us all hot and bothered while knocking dudes to the ground. Consider our engines revved.
