What do I think about it:-
I am pretty sure I didn't get the memo that Fast & Furious 6 was re-written into a cop movie.
It's the 6th in the franchise and probably the most far-fetched film of the money milking series, the whole plot seemed to be a far off fantasy right out of the screen writers mind.
With over the top jargons and un-impressive car scenes, Furious 6 took away the fast and it became just another action flick with it's tanks and guns and testorones and girls and of course vy limited showcase of cars ( did everyone else finally realize that wrecking their cars wasn't the best marketing plan?)
Furious 6 was a joy ride for action junkies but it's exaggerations of the action scenes were far too unrealistic for my enjoyment and the convenient storyline just somehow makes it too unrelatable. There was a tank, there was a plane a few people die on the way and if you take it far enough you might get a tv series coming out really soon.
It was entertaining but not impressive and I personally find it dull. What happened to the car races, the adrenaline pumping tight corners and the impressive camera work that first made the franchise famous?
Post movie scene:
The scenes shows the car chase when Sung Kang crashes and die, revealing the person who slammed into him none other than Jason Statham which makes him the obvious villian for a Fast 7 film and the brother of Fast 6's protaganist possibly taking revenge for his brother's death. ( Now that this scene it shown, they nv DID explained who crashed Sung Kang in Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift... great plot tie-in or just over adapting?)
After my recent experience with the Lotus Convoy ( http://www.benjaminfoo.com/2013/04/the-host-and-largest-lotus-car-convoy.html ) It definitely was a great experience to be inside a sports car racing along the streets thus making Furious 6 somewhat mild in terms of properly showcasing the speed that was very apparent in the first movie. :(
