Completely different movie than the first four. I was surprise as anyone that it was as entertaining as it was. It was like the writer watched Oceans Eleven and said "hey our guys can do this too". Still some stiff acting and cheesy dialog, but still very enjoyable. Will pick up at a decent price.

MikeScott: I was on the same track as you right before I saw it. I also can't call myself a fan of the series. Though, I thought the 4th had an OK story, but the car stunts were the most CGI plagued and unrealistic I've seen of the series. But Fast Five, taking off where the 4th left off, was a totally different ball park to me. The stunts were still wild as heck (maybe more so), but I found them a whole lot more believable than the 4th, even if there were still a couple weak ones. Plus, the story in this one was a whole lot more cranked up than any of the previous ones. Frankly, Fast Five is what I wanna call the "Inception" of the series, and the best. I almost can't wait to see it in glorious hi-def.

Why are there no longer full franchise box sets anymore as far as US releases? I don't have any of the previous films on BD and it would make it so much more simple.

This was a great piece of entertainment, but why such a late release date? Part 4 came out mid August if I recall,this we have to wait 'til October!

I like cars, but I couldn't get past the feeling that this franchise is just cinematic cock rock, or the movie equivalent of the UFC.

Great movie. I was really hoping for a boxset, b/c I haven't picked up the other movies on blu yet. However, with rumors of a 6th film on the way, maybe I'll just wait until that film is released. I think 4, 5, and the upcoming #6 were suppose to be a new trilogy.

"Fast Five kicked off the summer movie season last April and silenced any doubters who predicted that the franchise was running out of gas. "

No one had really doubted this movie wasnt going to be a hit, it was tracking very high since the first trailers hit.
And it was one of the hot tickets for the industry advanced screeenings.
there was never any doubt this was going to open in first place, the surprise was that it actually became universals highest opening weekend ever..

Fast and furious was the movie that showed the franchise wasnt running out of gas after tokyo drift.
what Fast Five did was to change the game by jumping Genres and becoming a heist movie instead of a street racing film.

The story idea was great for this film. But I had a problem with some of the far-fetched, completely implausible stunts. I know it's a movie, but the best action movies from the past almost always allowed some plausibility in the stunts, thereby allowing the movie-goer to suspend disbelief. This movie had a few head-shaking moments.

The acting was stiffer than any movie in the franchise, and I was highly disasppointed with what they did to Vince's character.

Why on Earth does anyone ever think Tyrese Gibson is good for a movie like this? Ughhh. Lots of fake laughs, which unsurprisingly the standard mindless movie-goers of today laughed at.

It wasn't a bad film, just not as great as people rated it.

Why would you even report that it's going to be Dolby Digital? That's obviously a mistake, you should have just left it out or said DTS-HD MA like it will almost certainly be. There is no way in hell this is coming out with a Dolby Digital track. Now you're just going to get people riled up for nothing.

I love the fact that no one really commented on them making two identical content boxes with merely different covers. I understand one will be in the Blu-ray section and the other in the DVD section of a store but come on, that is just plain stupid! It's like the distributors went "lets make 2 different covers and force DVD buyers into also buying the Blu-ray version".

Thank god the blu-ray includes both versions. I hate when a good movie gets released on blu-ray as only an Extended version when the Theatrical version is already good or better.
