Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) offers Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew a full pardon if they help him nab a gang of lethally skilled mercenary drivers whose second-in-command is someone they all know.
" Lin understands this track inside and out, backwards and forwards - four directions out of countless others in which he spins us. "
" [The action is] glorious while it lasts, but then the film goes back to figuring out how to keep its oversized vessel from taking on water. And that's more hard work than it's worth. "
" How you feel about "Fast & Furious 6" is a matter of perspective. "
" Ludicrous, but undeniably fun and surprisingly affectionate, this is really all you could ask of a car crash movie, and more. "
" It pretty much goes without saying that the script by Chris Morgan, who penned most of the previous installments, is achingly stupid and beyond ludicrous. "
" Furious Six continues on in the same vein as its predecessor, and may just be my favorite of the lot. "
" For their own part, Vin Diesel and the "F&F" handlers seem eager to assert how they've molded a series of installments into, yep, a saga, complete with expansive, twisty continuity. "
" Exists purely to showcase how idiotically over-the-top action sequences can become when annoyances like gravity are tossed to the side. "
" Just as the plot threatens to run out of gas, Lin rescues the film with a spate of vastly ridiculous and therefore enjoyable set-pieces, most of which involve means of conveyance designed to make the cars look puny. "
" Happily, amid all the noise, the races -- there's a terrific one through the streets of downtown London -- the crashes and the outlandish stunts, there is some humor, and it's very welcome. "
" That the movie is so indifferently written shouldn't really be a surprise. The dialogue is just there to mark time between the set pieces, and it's nice to report that Lin has outdone himself in that department. "
" [Director Justin Lin] manages to imbue the material with Hawksian notions of masculinity, group dynamics, and moral authority even as he preserves the franchise's multicultural milieu and gleefully exaggerated action sequences. "
" A comedown from the high of "Fast Five," but the physics-be-damned stuntwork and girl-on-girl beatdowns keep this series the guiltiest of pleasures. "
" Sometimes Fast & Furious 6 is engrossing, sometimes absurd, and some of the action is so outlandish it makes the audience laugh. But whatever it is, it's always some variety of fun. "
" There's a Road Runneresque sense of madness that's undeniably infectious. If only it was played off characters who had some sense of reality, who weren't such obvious constructions, and who spoke fewer leaden lines. "
" A satisfying thrill ride, at least on a par with the earlier installments. "
" Some of the action sequences are insane. No, really. Absurd, impossible, physics defying, triage-required stuff. No matter. That's the foolish rush of a franchise that must go faster and faster and furiouser and furiouser. "
" It's a ripsnorting carmageddon that stylizes automotive annihilation the way John Woo used to choreograph death and destruction with guns and explosions. "
" Fast & Furious 6 is much like the other Fast & Furious films. Which is to say it does its thing pretty well. "
" Perhaps the most annoying thing about the movie: The final scene sets up yet another sequel. "
