Not sure how anyone over the age of 8 could enjoy these movies. Logic and physio are both defied in this series.
Directed by Justin LinStarring Paul Walker, Vin Disel and Dwayne JohnsonPlot Overview: At the slight chance of his presumed dead girlfriend to be alive, Dominic Torretto(Vin Disel) gathers his old crew to find his love, and stop terrorist Owen Shaw(Luke Evans).While I did enjoy this, I think that it tried too hard to improve on things that didn't need improving. Granted it helped in some areas, such as the villains, but that doesn't mean everything needed improving. It does have its moments and when it shines, it shines, but it's not as good as 5. It is better than 1-4 and I can recommend you seeing it but I just feel it wanted to go bigger and better but only went bigger, and that thought hurt the film.The story for this movie was over-bloated and it tried to go bigger than 5 but that harmed the movie. I really enjoyed 5 partly because it was Torretto and co doing what they do best and the fact it was just a great, fun heist movie that mixed the franchise up. 6 tried to turn them into international spies which tries to give bigger stakes and make the movies seem more grander than what they are. I do like how they attempt to interconnect all the movies 'individual stories' which one 'overarching narrative' and think it was pretty smart to do so.Paul Walker was decent as Brian O'Connor. Vin Disel was not good as Dominic Torretto and I don't think lightning can strike twice. Dwayne Johnson was great as Hobbs and is still the stand out character. Michelle Rodriguez was fine as Letty but her twist was pretty lazily handled, as far as I'm concerned. Luke Evans was good as Owen Shaw and made Shaw the first good villain in the franchise. Technically, the movie was passable. Some of the effects were pretty great but aside from that the cinematography and whatnot was fine.This movie needed to provide fun action scenes and set pieces. This movie had SIX movies of bad villains weighing on its shoulders and it managed to create a passable villain in the form of Owen Shaw but it still felt like they were trying too hard.In conclusion, this movie has some enjoyable moments and I do recommend you see it but it doesn't hold a candle to 5 but I suppose it couldn't live up to it.7/10Would Recommend

Warning, this may contain Spoilers: This was the biggest and the best one of the franchise. The cast is amazing, each actor shines brightly in their roles. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Gina Carano. The action is fantastic. Aside from the action, the film has a nice sense of humour producing a few big laughs over the course of the movie. The film is fast paced and doesn't slow down. The film has an awesome set of fight scenes. The Gina Carano and Michelle Rodriguez fighting scenes is one of the film's best parts. They both show impressive skills. The main villain is good, well played by Luke Evans. The death of Paul Walker was very sad, I miss that guy. The director of Furious 6, Justin Lin. He really makes this his best action film ever. Watching this movie on the day it was released in cinemas in my country, it was one of the most awesome cinematic experiences of my life. It is a movie that knows what it is and remains that way from beginning to end. It is a movie that every one should watch. It is lots of fun.
