Universal Studios is gasping for air right now. Who would have thought that Vin Diesel’s Fast & Furious Sixth installment of the lucrative franchise would do so well? So far it has kicked the butt of several other high energy movies like Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness making it the hottest ticket in town. The film has grossed $38.2 million this past Friday and is establishing itself as the hottest ticket in town. Vin Diesel has flexed his muscles once again and doesn’t want to stop. (He says number seven will be on it’s speedy way.)
But what makes Fast & Furious so enticing? Why can’t we get enough? Is it indeed the muscle flexing of Vin or Sultry Jordana? Could it be we just want to sit and stare at some awesome action scenes?
Let’s have a look at what the story is about:
Dom (Vin) and Brian (Paul) have moved on from their Rio heist and used the 100 million dollars to move as far away from each other as possible in order to be safe. However this new found situation is hurting them more and more because they feel incomplete and not free at all. In the mean time Hobbs (Dwayne) has his own issues. He has been following an organization which consists of highly murderous mercenary drivers divided over twelve countries in addition to this explosive mix there is a surprise in store for Dom. Naturally the only way this organization can be blown to bits is if the team of Dom meets them in the street and shows them who’s boss. What can Hobbs offer Dom that he doesn’t already have? The promise of a full pardon for all involved so they will be able to return home and start spending their hard earned cash and possible be reunited with their families.
But really, does anyone care about this stuff at all? Most people think the writers came up with it in 20 minutes anyway. (Which of course is not true, it took them 22 minutes. Just kidding, this thing has many twists and turns.)
If you want to know the why Vin Diesel and his crew in Fast & Furious 6 are fanning the flames to make them the hottest ticket in Tinsel Town, read on.
The real reason you would want to see this baby is because it’s thrilling, it has tense action and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Hoping nobody will crash or if they do please let it be the annoying one. Or at least be in a spectacular way. The ending is gripping and will have you gasping for more. If all of this is still not convincing enough there are epic new cars to ogle and drool over as well as super hot girls and eye popping locations.
Just read some of the reactions from the audience, after they caught their breath:
- “It was the first time in my life when I saw people applauding at the end of the movie..and it wasn’t even over yet!”
- “It was that general wtf reaction..and of course there is the douche that says: ‘I knew it'”
- “It was off the hook,it’s definitely the best one Ive seen in the franchise….cant wait for fast 7″
- “Great movie even more action than Fast Five!”
And in Vin Diesel’s own words: “You break my heart, I’ll break your neck.” So you better love his movie!
So listen to the man, if Vin Diesel tells you his latest offering is the hottest ticket don’t walk run to town and into the nearest cinema and watch Fast and Furious Six!
