Lots of car-nage in new movie 'Fast Five'

April 29, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker team up again for "Fast Five," the latest in the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

In this one, they're joined by the stars of other "Fast and Furious" films in a new story involving cars and crime in Brazil.

The new addition to the cast is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a tough federal agent who's on their tail.

Johnson's big, brutal brawl with Diesel is one of the film's stand-out moments.

It feels like the stars had a good time making this movie.

Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster show their ability to nail it down. Hip-Hop star Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges is a nice surprise and Tyrese Gibson does not disappoint.

But the performances end up taking a back seat to the film's real stars: action and spectacle.

There is destruction galore here. I lost count of all the vehicles ruined and all the people killed. It just doesn't stop.

There are also absolutely far-fetched moments, but they're still a kick to see.

"Fast Five" is clever with ideas and creative in carrying them out. Makes you wonder how they'll top it the next time around.
