Fast 5
The ‘Fast Five’ Trailer is Here. It’s Glorious As Expected.

by Cas Ruffin on Dec 15th, 2010

When I saw this posted online yesterday, I promised myself that I would put it up today because it deserves its own post instead of being dumped in our Neighborhood Links. After watching the Fast Five trailer, it definitely looks better than what I expected. Speaking of expectations, surpassing them is this franchise’s legacy.

What I like about the Fast & Furious series is that is has no pretensions about what it is and what’s it’s supposed to be. The movies give the fans what they like over and over again, but not in a tired, repetitive way. We should consider ourselves lucky that there’s even a cohesive story tying all this action together. And I’m not being sarcastic this time. Fast & Furious viewers do not watche these movies for their story. They’re watching it for skirt-level camera angles, scenes that involve running/chasing, stares between opposing drivers, looking at the camera after a drifting stop, Reggaeton, Jordana Brewster looking hot, Vin Diesel being destructive, vigilantism, outlandish heists, and Paul Walker or Tyrese saying something ridiculous we can repeat later as an inside joke.

The parameters for this movie are so defined that is deserves to be its own genre.
