As you recall, in F&F5, Walker and Vin Diesel's gang pulled off the big heist and escaped from lawman Dwayne Johnson. Now, Johnson needs their help to take down a worse gang. So they Get the Old Gang Back Together Again. The gang is pretty much the same, except of course, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) is dead. Johnson has a new assistant, Gina Carano from Haywire.
And about that other gang - two things:
- They are basically the evil twins of Diesel and Walker's gang. Luke Evans, their mastermind, even resembles Walker a little.
- --SPOILER -- They have Letty in their gang.
Rodriguez is one of my favorite movie stars - I've written about how much I love her style. She gets a fair amount of screen time here, but the whole amnesia thing doesn't help her part. As for the rest of the movie, well, to pull evil twins and amnesia out of the bag o' tricks, you have to reach way down. Not necessarily scraping the bottom, but.
I guess the next one was almost in the can when Paul Walker died, and we will watch it regardless.
