I'm sure lots of people are sick and tired of sequels, and they have a right to be sick of them. That aside, this sequel was great. It's pretty much what you'd expect from a summer movie. Explosions, chase scenes, awesome fight scenes.Expanding on that, it had two really good fight scenes. Both involving Gina Carano and Michelle Rodriguez. Whatever they may lack in acting skills, I think they more than make up for them in their fight scenes. Which is reasonable given that Carano is an MMA fighter so she would know how to add some realism to a fight scene if there was anyone. There were other fights but not so notable. It takes place after Fast 5 and before Tokyo Drift if anyone else is keeping track. So all the regulars are back for this one as well with the exceptions of Don Omar and Tego Calderon. Though really, with so many characters already in the series, and with Tyrese taking the place of the comedic character, they weren't really missed. They were however mentioned by the other characters when others wondered where they were, in something of a callback to the last movie where they were last seen in a casino gambling away all their money. This is one thing about the movie that I liked. They did a lot of nods and callbacks and a few callforwards to all the other movies in the series. After the first one I made it a little game to myself to see if I could catch all of them, which even though I think it may not have needed it, added a little extra incentive to pay attention to more than just the explosions and cars. One more thing. Again for those that have been paying attention the story ("what story?" You may ask)this one takes place chronologically before Tokyo Drift. However, since the last movie, Han played by Sung Kang and Gisele played by the astounding Gal Gadot got themselves into a relationship, but we know, or should know, that Han is very much alone byt the time Tokyo Drift rolled around. So throughout Gisele was throwing out death flags left and right every fifteen minutes it seemed like. So we know something was going to happen to her. Just not how or when. Let me tell you, even though you know it's coming sooner or later, somehow you still end up shocked when it does.
