Fast & Furious 6: The Re(al) - view

Luke Hobbs: When you invite me to your house, you become the guest
It's bigger, louder and just a little (actually, a smidgen) better that Fast Five; why? Well, The Rock is no longer hunting them. period! But, its definitely a fun experience.

Fast 6 (as I would refer to it), has got awesome action sequences, wicked stunts with cars, a tank and a plane, ridiculous humour courtesy of Tyrese, and an okay script. "An okay script" in the Fast & Furious franchise is gold, as their movies are more action centric - always about the race car culture with little reference to a solid story line, but something happened with Fast Five, a transition with the plot that changed the course of the franchise, and this change reflected in Fast 6, this time and for the second time in the entirety of the franchise - they are on good terms with the law; and that's a big problem, you see in Fast Five, there was a nearly non-existent bad guy in Hernan Reyes, but there was a twist - a hunter was also in play - Luke Hobbs (The Rock), so we had the team going against a guy who had the entire police force in Rio in his pocket and a hunter that's quite determined to catch his prey, even if he beats the (bleep) out of 'em.

Star Wars (Random Images)

Darth Vader: He is here.
Governor Tarkin: Obi-Wan Kenobi? What makes you think so?
Darth Vader: A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master.
Governor Tarkin: Surely he must be dead by now.
Darth Vader: Don't underestimate the Force.
Governor Tarkin: The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that's left of their religion.
[answering a comm signal]
Governor Tarkin: Yes?
Voice over comm: We have an emergency alert in detention block AA-23.
Governor Tarkin: The Princess? Put all sections on alert.
Darth Vader: Obi-wan *is* here. The Force is with him.
Governor Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.
Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.
