Family-Faith Film Review: Fast Five
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Fast Five: An all-star cast culled from the previous four films in the action-oriented franchise that began with 2001’s “The Fast and the Furious” — most prominently Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, along with newcomer Dwayne Johnson — reunite in Rio de Janeiro for more speeding cars, gunplay and a heist of millions of dollars from a corrupt Brazilian police chief (Joaquim de Almeida). Director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan keep the pace predictably rapid, with occasional comedic dialogue to indicate that no one’s taking the proceedings all that seriously. Much gun and physical violence, a premarital pregnancy, a few instances of profanity, frequent crude and crass language, and fleeting sexual banter. A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2011
