ALL ROADS LEAD TO THIS.
Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) tracks down and hires Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew to go after a former British Special Forces soldier who destroyed a Russian military convoy. This jaw-droppingly popular franchise was cleverly rejuvenated in Fast Five (2011) and number six follows that template, mixing an international heist story with unbelievable car chases and stunts. There are a few set-pieces here that really stand out thanks to their limitless energy, and it’s fun to watch a very comfortable cast at work… but the bad guy is boring and there are far too many lulls between action scenes.
