Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. Newly joined by Dwayne Johnson, they take the series that hooked the world on adrenaline and amp up the action and spectacle on a global scale.
In Fast Five, former cop Brian O’Conner (Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) in a very unfamiliar place: the opposite side of the law in exotic Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Elsa Pataky joins Johnson and returning favourites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tag Calderon and Don Omar in an ultimate high-stakes heist.
The series that first captivated audiences a decade ago with its crew of underground Los Angeles street racers bound by a code of family and loyalty takes its die-hard audience on the biggest thrill ride to date. After blasting through heart-stopping runs in Miami’s race circuit, exposing the insular underworld of Tokyo drifting and rocketing through tunnels hidden underneath the U.S./Mexico border, our heroes are back in action.
Since we last saw them, Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody and have blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio, they must pull off one last job in order to gain their freedom. Their mission? Assemble an elite team of top operatives made up of their family of friends to orchestrate an insane heist worth $100 million. Dom and Brian know their only shot of getting out for good means crippling the corrupt businessman (Joaquim De Almeida) who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on the unlikely allies’ tails.
Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey
