Fast and the Furious 5: Fast Five Synopsis Revealed
Posted 09.16.10 by Ryan
Some may argue that all Fast and the Furious movies are the same, focusing solely on cars, girls, and more cars, but closer inspection reveals some slight differences. The first, 2001's The Fast and the Furious, saw Paul Walker as an undercover cop who infiltrates the L.A. street racing world and meets anti-hero Vin Diesel, forging a partnership that ended for the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, which saw Walker and Tyrese Gibson investigating a money launderer in Miami. Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift took the action to Japan, where Lucas Black filled in for Walker and Diesel in a storyline that was ignored for the 2009 sequel, Fast and Furious, which reunited Walker and Diesel in Los Angeles and reignited the franchise.
Have you found the difference? Location! Where will Walker and Diesel end up in the fifth installment, Fast Five? ComingSoon revealed a synopsis that has the duo teaming up with old friends in a race around the globe.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O'Conner (Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon, and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.
Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail.
Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey ... before someone else runs them down first.
In January, Diesel hinted that the sequel would head to "sexy locations" in what the actor revealed was the first of a "two-story saga." Fast and Furious director Justin Lin returns for the latest sequel, featuring a script from Chris Morgan (Wanted).
