One of the new movies recently released on Blu-ray is "Fast & Furious 6." This is one of the last films to feature actor Paul Walker, who died in a car accident during production of the seventh "Fast & Furious" film.
"Fast & Furious 6" picks up where the fifth film in the series ended. The supposedly retired cop-turned-criminal Brian O'Conner (played by Walker) is living with his girlfriend, Mia (played by Jordana Brewster), and their baby overseas. They live near Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel), Mia's brother who is also a retired criminal who worked with Brian. Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson), a federal agent who tried to capture them, finds them and asks for their help. He and his new partner Riley (played by Gina Carano) have been trying to bring down a dangerous terrorist (played by Luke Evans), who is an ex-military commando.
This movie, like the other "Fast & Furious" films, is not realistic or original. But it is still fun to watch because it has a lot of impressive chase scenes. One of the best scenes in the film involves a tank. It is very over-the-top and very well done.
In addition to the chase scenes, there are also a lot of fight scenes. These scenes are also very impressive.
Although viewers who prefer tight plots and complex, appealing characters may not be smitten with it, "Fast & Furious 6" is a good choice for fans of unabashed action films. Watching it is a good way to remember Paul Walker.
