Did you really think we were done with the excessive Super Bowl promotions? Nope! There’s more where that came from. Another movie that got some prime ad time during last night’s big game was Fast Five. The fifth installment in the long running Fast and the Furious franchise. It was 30 seconds of high octane action that featured a very angry Dwayne Johnson. Check it out…
Did you catch that last shot? Not only were Paul Walker and Vin Diesel speeding on a curved highway but they jumped off a cliff and out of a car simultaneously! Talk about taking the Thelma and Louis moment to the extreme. We hope that’s not the last scene in the film. That would be both a rip off and a spoiler.
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. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.
Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.
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…before someone else runs them down first.
Fast Five hits theaters on April 29.
