Fast and Furious 6 (review)

Honestly, I'm not a fan of Fast & Furious franchise. From 6 films, I only watch 2 Fast 2 Furious (which I don't really like), Fast 5 (this one is quite entertaining. I like it), and now Fast & Furious 6. I don't really like this franchise because I thought Fast & Furious is only about cars, cars, cars and cars with action, race, and girls in minimal clothes. But I thought Fast 5 is quite good and Joe Taslim, one of action actor in my country is in Fast & Furious 6. So I place my Blitzcard in the Blitz Ticket Machine and buy the ticket without hesitation.

Fast & Furious 6
The action in this movie is quite good even thought almost all the protagonist crew survive without serious injury (they do all those crazy stuffs and only mildly injured? Miracles often happen in movies). There's not many race in it compared to other Fast & Furious movies and they include some humors and drama to balance the action. After watch it for about 15-20 minutes I could predicted where the story will go, so I'm not surprised by the twist. I don't really pay attention to the music though. But the movie itself is pretty entertaining.

I was surprised that Joe Taslim (I've met him and have a photograph with him when I watched The Raid. He's really nice) had many moments in this film. Just seeing his name in the opening credit made me full with proud. He had one scene at the beginning of the movie where he said, "Vegh, hantam mereka!", which he said to made the audience aware that he's from Indonesia and not other Asian countries. This is the clip from his action scene in Waterloo Station:

Overall, this is a good movie particularly to the action movie fans. In the end of the movie, there's a snipped of future Fast & Furious 7 where Jason Statham get out from the car that attacked Han and throw Letty's necklace that she gave to Owen (the baddie in Fast and Furious 6) in front of Han. Now, it making me interested to see what would they do with the next film. Have you watch Fast & Furious 6? If you already watched it, are you interested to see the next installment?
