I was trying not to use the plot as an element in rating the "Fast Five."
I don't think many people go to these films for the logic. If they saw the "Ocean#whatever" films, they use the same basic storyline in these "Fast" sagas, with extra car chases and gun battles thrown in for color.
I planned to evaluate the film strictly on action and adventure elements, but it lasted far too long and that highlighted the giant plot holes.
My lack of forgiveness will not matter, their regular fans will turnout for this and future editons; only us gray beards miss the existence of a reasonable plot.
The cast members are all colorful and like-able - that is a key element in the success of both
this film franchise and the Ocean# whatever series.
