Series still has plenty of gas

I'm not a huge fan of this sort of thing, in fact I didn't see the first one until after the first four had come out. It was nothing to write home about and as 2,3 and 4 were critically panned I decided not to bother with them. However when I noticed five was getting food reviews I decided to risk it and I felt well rewarded and confident enough to see this latest one once it also got good reviews. There's a decent amount of humour plus over the top action including stunts, chases and fist fights. For what it's worth the story involves Dom and his gang agreeing to chase down the missing part of a weapon that a terrorist mastermind is also after. This sets it apart from the rest of the series when they're on the wrong side of the law. I groaned inwardly after I bought my ticket when I saw it was over 2 hours, but it honestly doesn't feel like it and the last 20 or so minutes are the best part. Don't know if it's good or bad news that there's a 7th coming out next year, obviously this film has carried on with the new life that the last one breathed into the franchise but it's always good to quit while you're ahead.
