    The Fast and The Furious was a classic, 2Fast 2Furious was great, Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift was okay but Fast and Furious wasn't that great.

    Now that Fast Five is being released, it seems like it is a great movie, come on fast cars, cool car chases and awesome fight scenes: Vin Desel vs The Rock that is going to be one big fight.

    I hope fast five is better than the original and the other movies.

    Remember when Vin Diesel turned down 20 million something dollars for Fast 2. He was gonna be a "serious" actor. Then he wanted that much for XXX 2. This is a dude with no self awareness. I don't hate him or anything, but I'd like to see him admit that he overestimated his talent ten years ago. I would like to see the Riddick franchise expand though.

    @frankenfate I like the sixth shift subtitle.

  20. FrankenFate

    And yeah "Fast Six" just won't do, i hope they don't use that title, I already had to get used to them using the title "Fast Five", now they need to use a better title, I've got some ideas too

    Fast & Furious: End of the Line
    Fast & Furious: Miami Rush
    Fast & Furious: High Stakes
    Fast & Furious: Crash & Burn
    Fast & Furious: Sixth Shift

    Not exactly good names I guess, but it's what I thought of

    @DB23 I was thinking the same thing, they probably will make a 7th, happen's with lots of other movies when the last one finally comes out or you think it's the last one even though they announce that it is, then you find out years later that they decide to make another sequel. So if the 6th one succeeds (which it will), then more than likely they'll come up with a new story for a 7th installment, I also say "bring it" with the 6th film on the way and hope to see it soon, should be out by 2013, maybe, and from what I've hear, this film is going to start off at the end of the 4th one when they were busting Dom out of the prizon bus

    @thedude1 thanks. It also matches the whole FastFive thing by being FuriousSix which would be nice being it's the last movie in the franchise.

    @ghostman "Furious Six" is a kick ass name. I really hope they use that one.

    As long as Paul Walker and Vin Diesel come back and they can add talented action stars such as Dwayne Johnson then I am down for "Fast Six". I am a big fan of them all except for Tokyo Drift which was just terrible.

    3 years agoby @thedude1Flag

  27. Ghostman

    possible titles I came up with:

    -'Furious Six'
    -'The Sixth Gear'
    -Fast and Furious: Mexican Drag' (always imagined the last one after seeing Tokyo Drift)

    plus, the poster will be an above aerial shot of a street car doing donuts in the shape of 6!

    Great news. It's too early for this franchise to end yet. If the stories and plots were poor, then i would agree. But they have been very enjoyable so far leaving me wanting more. Especially the way the 4th ended. I hope they will show the scene of Van Diesel being rescued from the prison bus. I would love to see the next one filmed in Europe. Fast Five looks great, as was 4. Overall the series has been good. They will probably make another one after the 6th. I too say bring it.
