(Photo from Universal Pictures)We are less than 48 hours away from the opening of Fast & Furious 6 and the movie is getting tons of crazy buzz. The critics are already praising the high-octane Justin Lin-directed movie about bro-hood and fast cars — and why shouldn't they? For one, it's keeping Vin Diesel employed. Secondly, we get to see Paul Walker do his version of acting. And if the sixth one is as ridiculously awesome as the fifth (which it is), then there shouldn't be any complaints. Check out what the critics are saying:
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Furious 6 is even cooler and more aerodynamically delirious than its predecessor, if such a thing is even theoretically possible. (more)"
Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"It's improbable, to say the least, but it is absolutely beautifully staged, and Lin milks every bit of tension possible out of every beat. (more)"
Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"None of it makes any sense, except within the high-octane logic of blowing stuff up onscreen. And, in case you're wondering, sometimes that can be entertainment enough...(more)"
Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"The most impressive thing about the sixth entry into this noisy franchise is that it's both more preposterous and more self-important than ever before. Which is no mean feat. (more)"
Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"A winning combination of audacious set pieces, outrageous stunts, brawny banter and plot twists. (more)"
Laremy Legel, Film.com
"Has something for everyone, so long as everyone wants their action supercharged. (more)"
Owen Williams, Empire Magazine
"Furious 6, like its predecessors, is a big screen no-brainer that's objectively terrible but undeniably pleasurable. (more)"
Katey Rich, CinemaBlend.com
"If endless mumbled monologues from Vin Diesel are the price to pay for watching The Rock land a leaping punch to the face, it's worth it. (more)"
Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"Annoyingly entertaining. (more)"
