Sequel to 2011's Fast Five
Fast & Furious 6 proved that Fast Five was not a fluke. The sixth installment in this surprisingly badass street racing franchise is very nearly as awesome as its predecessor and kept the heist theme going strong.
I was glad that this film focused a lot of its time on character development, particularly Han and Gisele. They went from characters whose names I couldn't remember to people I actually cared about. That's rare for an action franchise. The action sequences in this film are spectacular, as well as the various fight scenes that are very well choreographed.
This franchise has genuinely surprised me. I wasn't impressed with the first film and they just got worse as it went along. But then, something happened that turned the Fast & Furious franchise into a fun, well-made adventure series that I actually look forward to. I can't wait for Part 7.
