Well, people, today is that day we’ve all been waiting for—yes, that’s right, the sixth film in the Fast and Furious franchise now has an official plot synopsis! Isn’t that exciting? How else are we to know what to expect from this film? After all, given the creative zig-zags and thrilling plot twists of the five previous films, there was truly no way to predict what the plot of Fast & Furious 6 would have in store for us after the inexplicable success of Fast Five. But today, we finally know: a bunch of people with personal trainers and unnaturally orange skin are going to drive a bunch of cars around… real fast.
So, what possible twists could Fast & Furious 6 have for us? Well, our band of anti-heroes are all rich from the events of Fast Five, but due to their lengthy criminal records are unable to return home to the United States. Their only option? Help out a Diplomatic Security Service agent (who has already tried to bust them) take down a mercenary organization, and they all get pardons and can return home. So it’s kind of like Inception, but with people driving around in fast cars a lot. Anyway, full synopsis:
Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).
The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
Fast & Furious 6 will hit theaters on May 24.
