“Fast Five” was an all-around great movie because it had a lot of action. The movie was about a heist of 100 million dollars. The brought a lot of people back from the old movies. They assemble a team to take down a drug kingpin.
When Dominic “Dom” Toretto (Vin Diesel) is being transported to Lompoc prison by bus, his sister Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) and friend Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) lead an assault on the bus, causing it to crash and freeing Dom. While the authorities search for them, the trio escapes to Rio de Janeiro.
Awaiting Dom’s arrival, Mia and Brian join their friend Vince and other participants on a job to steal three cars from a train. They murder two DEA agents on the train.
Following the murder of the DEA agents aboard the train, blamed on Dom and his team, DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and his team arrive in Rio to arrest Dom and Brian. With the help of local officer Elena Neves, they travel to Dom’s safe house, but find it under assault by Reyes’ men. Hobbs and his team eventually find and arrest Dom, Mia, Brian and Vince.
While transporting them to the airport for extradition to the United States, the convoy is attacked by Reyes’ men, who kill Hobbs’ team.
Hobbs and Elena agree to help with the heist. The gang breaks into the police station where Reyes’ money is kept and tear the vault from the building using their cars, dragging it through the city with police in pursuit. Hobbs agrees to give them a 24-hour head start to escape. In a post-credits scene, Hobbs is given a file by Monica Fuentes concerning the hijack of a military convoy in Berlin.
In the file, Hobbs discovers a recent photo of Dom’s former girlfriend Letty Ortiz, who had been presumed dead.
