After a couple of early misfires and the premature departure of Vin Diesel, the Fast and the Furious series is purring along nicely. In fact, they're getting better as they go: Justin Lim's Furious 6 (also known as “Fast and Furious Six,” but I like to defer to the title as used on screen) is the best since the original The Fast and the Furious. This time the team of adorably-lowlife-yet-principled drivers led by Dom Toretto (Diesel, who wisely returned in part four) is recruited by Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), the fed who debuted in Fast Five, to go after Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), who has his own gang of stylish, well-equipped hoodlums. That's a long sentence hiding a simple theme – the gang gets back together to drive fast and kick some butt – and this series is all about the simple themes. Ridiculous stunts and hammy overacting always go down easier when everyone involved owns the audacity instead of running from it; Furious 6 is loud, proud, and not quite out of control.
