We have Beards so we know Movies: A “Fast Five” Review
How much more manly can it get?
The Result: We didn’t end up manly at all. Instead we giggled like little boys.
Don’t get me wrong, we loved the movie. But not because it was a masterful piece of cinema. No, simply because it was fun. Sure, there were some awkward “dramatic” scenes but when the action starts all over again you forget all about them. And they (the actors) seemed to really enjoy themselves too. And that always receives a gold star in my book.
And also, in a movie franchise about car chases there hasn’t been a single memorable car chase until now. Fast Five delivered TWO of them!
A couple of questions though:
Did they (the filmmakers) really think people would confuse Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson? Sure, they both are clean shaven and look chocolatly delicious but really? Vin The Chunk Diesel and Dwayne The Rock Johnson?? Well I guess they did, because why else would Dwayne Johnson end up wearing an ill-fitting goatee? I usually encourage beards on everyone, but everything has its limit.
And finally I just have to say: I am sooo in love with Jordana Brewster! Janne the Director of course had to blurt out she’s starting to get Margot Kidder lips and ruin my romantic mood.
Anyway.. good, fun movie.. they drive cars fast.. a hint of Ocean’s (insert random number).. go see it.
