Latest Fast Five Video Revisits the Franchise
04.15.11 by Ryan
Fast Five is the fifth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, so for those that haven't bothered to watch the previous movies, or only caught one or two along the way, the latest viral video tries to prepare audiences by taking them back through the series one movie at a time.
Starting with 2001's The Fast And The Furious, the video shows Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in the early days of their association, when Walker was an undercover cop trailing Diesel while simultaneously falling for his sister (Jordana Brewster).
In the first sequel, 2003's 2 Fast 2 Furious, Walker returned, but Diesel did not, opening the door for the introduction of Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pierce. Only a brief portion of 2006's The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift is shown, including Sung Kang's introduction as Han and almost all of Diesel's brief cameo.
2009's Fast and Furious reunited Walker and Diesel and its success has brought fans Fast Five, which reunites all the characters from the previous movies as they elude Dwayne (we still want to call him "The Rock") Johnson as a federal agent looking to bring Diesel and Walker into custody.
Fast Five was directed by Justin Lin (Fast and Furious, Tokyo Drift), and franchise actors Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Gal Gadot co-star.
