Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster
The fifth installment in the Fast and the Furious film franchise is Fast Five, or as it's also referred to, Fast & Furious 5 or Rio Heist. Characters from previous films in the series such as Paul Walker (Brian O'Conner), Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) and Jordana Brewster (Mia Toretto) reprise their roles, while Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson makes his first appearance as DSS Agent Luke Hobbs.
O'Conner and Mia are the masterminds behind an escape plot that frees Dominic Toretto from a prison bus, with the trio escaping to Rio de Janeiro. DEA agents are close behind, and when government agents are killed during a skirmish involving a highly-sought after Ford GT40, the three are falsely incriminated for the murder. Hobbs and his team are assigned to find and extradite the trio, which they succeed in doing, only to fall victim of yet another daring "rescue-and-recovery" plot. Eventually the foursome "bury the hatchet" in order to hunt down the "real" criminals, a rogue splinter group of Dominic's former allies.
Justin Lin directed, with screenplay written by Chris Morgan, who also penned three other installments in the series.
