Movie Review: Tully

Fast Five Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

Fast Five Movie Review
By: SandwichJohn

I was walking into the theater not knowing how I felt about this Franchise, same movie just told in a different way. I was making fun of my friends that were so excited for this movie to come out. Maybe in the same way they were laughing when I lined out overnight to watch the Star Wars films.

All I have to say is Fast Five blew me away. Forget that it is apart of the Fast And Furious franchise. This movie could hold it's own. Can't you tell how excited I am.

The movie is a guys wet dream, Hot Cars, Hot Woman (Yes, ladies Hot Guys too) and more action than you could ask for. We all know going into this film that there weren't going to be any kind of Oscar caliber performances from the actors. But if action or driving could grant you an Oscar then everyone in this film would be getting one.

There are a few thing I need to point out before I go on with the review, there are cars in this movie I have never seen or heard of before, how they tore apart the city (amazing driving) and the confrontation between Hobbs (The Rock) & Dom (Diesel) reminded me of of the fight scenes between Rocky vs Apollo, just not stop action. For two big time stars to put away their egos and do it for the fans was great. When we were all little who didn't wish they could have seen Stallone vs Schwarzenegger go at it on the big screen. When you watch the movie you will understand what I mean.

Make sure you stay around until the end of the credits for a Huge surprise. Don't be like those fools that leave right after the movie is done. Haven't we learned by now?

Movie starts off with Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) breaking Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) out of a prison transport bus heading to Lompoc prison (if you know me then u know I use to run a store in that town) While they are on the run they find their way to Rio and end up hooking up with Vince (Matt Schulze), and under take a quick and easy job according to Vince.  Nothing in life is easy, the job goes sideways when they realize that the cars were seize by the DEA and being transported out of town. The Ford GT40 is the car that Mia escapes in while Dom and Brian caught in the end by Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida), who is owner of the car.

The pair escape and end up at the safe house trying to figure out what or why Reyes wanted the Ford GT40 back so bad.

Who does the DEA send in when they need to find their man? DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson.)
With the help of local rookie cop Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) they locate the safe house where they discover a torn apart Ford GT40. But something is missing.

In the mean time once Dom and Brian figure out what Reyes wanted out of the car so bad, they decide it's time to put together a team for the Heist of a lifetime. We get to see many of the different cast members from the previous Fast & Furious films. Han Lue (Sung Kang), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Ludacris) and Gisele (Gal Gadot)

The heist begins the following day as the gang breaks into the police station where the secret item is. (I don't want to give away anything until you see it) And this is where the crazy street destruction and awesome driving begins and ends. This is where I am going to end my review. I really want you to go see the film and be surprised.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
