Day 57

Movie: Fast Five
Starring: Vin Diesel, The Rock
Genre: Action
Year: 2011
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: After breaking out of jail, a car thief and his brother in law plan  to rob the biggest drug lord in Rio.

This is the fifth film in the Fast and Furious series.
It seems to be a departure from the other four by making itself more straight up action and less to do with the idea of car culture. 

This can be watched as a stand alone film, you do not need to be aware of the first four movies at all to understand what the idea behind this movie is.
In fact, it plays more like a typical cop drama with very few car chases then you would expect.

What do I think I learned from this film?
That my mother will watch anything if The Rock is on the screen.
