Fast Five (2011)

Fast Five is a 2011 American heist action film directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan. It is also known as Fast & Furious 5 or Fast & Furious 5: Rio Heist.

It is the fifth movie in the Fast & Furious series and the sequel to Fast & Furious (2009).

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, and Joaquim de Almeida are among the cast members.

Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner form a heist squad to steal $100 million from a crooked businessman while being chased by US Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs.

Universal Studios intentionally deviated from the street racing concept prominent in earlier Fast films in order to turn the brand into a heist action series featuring automobiles when producing Fast Five.

They believed that by doing so, they would be able to appeal to a broader audience who would otherwise be turned off by a strong focus on automobiles and automotive culture.

Fast Five is regarded as the series' transitional picture, with just one vehicle race and a focus on action set pieces such as brawls, gunfights, and the core robbery. The film was promoted via social media, virtual games, theater chains, car manufacturers, and NASCAR races, among other places.

Lin, Diesel, and Walker's comebacks were announced in February 2010, and the main shooting started in July and lasted until October of that year, with production taking place in Atlanta, Puerto Rico, and Rio de Janeiro.

Brian Tyler, who composed the scores for the previous two episodes, returns to provide the music for this one. The film is noteworthy for focusing on real stuntwork rather than the computer-generated locations seen in previous installments of the series.

Fast Five had its global debut on April 15, 2011, in Rio de Janeiro, and was distributed in theaters worldwide on April 29, 2011. Lin's directing, the action scenes, and Johnson's acting all garnered excellent reviews.

Fast Five earned over $625 million worldwide, making it the sixth highest-grossing picture of 2011, the highest-grossing film in the series at the time, and setting records in many foreign countries for Universal's highest-grossing opening weekend. On May 24, 2013, a sequel, Fast & Furious 6, was released in the United States.

The film garnered mixed reviews from reviewers, with many praising Walker and Diesel's performances as well as the action scenes, but criticizing the narrative and conclusion. The film was the 19th highest-grossing film of 2001, grossing more than $200 million worldwide.

Takers (2006)
