As Indiana Jones said back in the 1981 classic “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “It’s not the years, honey – it’s the mileage.”
But nowhere better can that quote be applied today than to the “Fast and the Furious” film series. Where most Hollywood franchises tend to run out of gas after just three installments, the “Furious” movies are, amazingly, still speeding along just fine after five. They really got back on track with the fourth chapter – 2009’s “Fast and Furious,” which reunited Vin Diesel and Paul Walker from the 2000 original – but “Fast Five” actually defies convention to fit the bill as the biggest, best and most furious “Fast” of them all.
And it does so by giving the premise a thorough tune-up that doesn’t conflict with what made the series so appealing in the first place. Fast cars are still the name of the game, but new characters are added and the setting has been relocated to a more exotic milieu. The result is a souped-up sequel that’s very entertaining from start to finish, and it’s 130-minute running time flies by so fast that you can practically smell the rubber burning from the big screen.
The summer movie season doesn’t officially start until May 6 (with the release of “Thor”), but “Fast Five” jumps the gun by pulling out of the gate one week sooner. There’s every reason to believe that the “Fast” series has enough gas left in the tank to take a few more laps around the world.
Because after all, it’s not the years – it’s the mileage.
