Fast Five (PG-13)


As male power fantasies go, this fifth Fast franchise installment has an undeniable trashy charm. We join the original crew of road-racing bandits—Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster—robbing trains in Rio de Janeiro. With FBI agent Dwayne Johnson on their tail, they plan a $100 million caper. With crisp stunts that defy the laws of physics and a gritty atmosphere, this film is never dull. The extravagantly budgeted action scenes are so thrilling that you can forfeit its shortcomings.
