I watched the movie with no reservations or expectations and loved it, after watching several chik-flix and other moves that were mediocre, it was a welcome break. After I finished it I did realize that I just watched a heist movie and realized that many might not like it as they probably would be expecting a car race/chase movie...Fast Five - 7.0/10 - Disappointed, only because I had be lead to believe it would be better. Havent seen any since the original. Basically a heist movie, which is hard to screw up for me. Paul Walker is near the top of my terrible-actor-that-still-gets-jobs lists, and this movie didn't change that opinion. Really didn't mind any of the other characters and the Brazilian policewoman actually shined. Unfortunately the writers gave none of the characters any decent dialog. I don't mind over the top action, but I do get irked when the basic laws of physics are ignored. Eg., I'll accept it when the good guy gets 10000 rounds fired at him from professional bad guys without getting hit, but I don't like seeing people.jump hundreds of feet and land in water without ill-effect - thats what peopel do to commit suicide..
