STARRING Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Dwayne Johnson
DIRECTED BY Justin Lin

5 Fast 5 Furious — sorry, Fast Five — once again pairs ex-cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) with ex-con Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). After the events of Fast & Furious, the duo find themselves stuck in Rio de Janeiro. There’s only one way for them to get out: taking down a corrupt businessman. (We predict car chases aplenty.) Franchise veterans Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris all return for this outing. They’re joined by Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs, a no-nonsense federal agent who’s determined to bring Brian and Dominic to justice.
