In this sixth installment of the action franchise, the auto-racing roughnecks (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez) team up with a federal agent (Dwayne Johnson) to hunt down an international terrorist. Director Justin Lin, who took over the series with the third release, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), manages to imbue the material with Hawksian notions of masculinity, group dynamics, and moral authority even as he preserves the franchise’s multicultural milieu and gleefully exaggerated action sequences. Tying up some story lines while introducing others, this has the feel of a B-movie series from the 40s, like the Boston Blackie or Charlie Chan programmers.
