This is a short film which is a prequel to Fast and Furious involving the fugitive ex-convict Dom assembling his crew in the Dominican Republic to plan a hijacking of a road train gasoline tanker truck.
Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto 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 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.Written by
Because of the negative reaction from car enthusiasts regarding the use of CGI backgrounds and locations, Justin Lin insisted "Fast Five" has a limited use of it, to focus more on practical effects. See more »
Nearly the whole time that Elena is wearing Dom/Letty's cross necklace, it is very short around her neck. If it were this short in reality, Dom could never wear it; it would practically choke him if he could get it on at all. But when Elena returns to her home right after she and the others try to arrest Dom and Brian, it is much longer, hanging at breast length. But even that would be too short for her to have doubled around her neck before. See more »

I enjoyed the movie so much, that I came onto IMDb and registered myself just so that I can post a review.
The movie was packed with jaw dropping, eye popping action from beginning to end. The drama had a mix of sadness, comedy and seriousness which were all mixed in together so beautifully to give a consistency to keep the viewer starring at the screen and being involved in the movie rather than daydreaming about other things.
In my honest opinion I would say that it is the best Fast & Furious movie to date.
I want to go see it again!
(by the way, I realise that this isn't the best review in the world or might even be an awful review, the point is that I enjoyed the movie thoroughly and felt I should contribute to it's high average ratings).
