Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fast Five is grindingly mechanical -- and not just because of all the emphasis on car repairs and retooling."
‑ Leah Rozen, TheWrap
"The chemistry of the core cast - steered by Vin Diesel and Paul Walker - keeps this outing from running on fumes."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Hard-core fans of the series with enjoy it but others should steer away from this over-the-top action flick."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"The last 2 entries were stupid too, but at least this one was well directed and features some of the most impressive stunt work I've seen in years."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
"Manages to be more fun than any movie with its outrageous carbon footprint has any right to be."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"[Johnson's] skin looks as though it's been slathered in butter; his enjoyment is infectious and keeps the movie speeding along."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"The whole thing progresses to one of the looniest heists of all time. The result is the most exciting, visually jazzy, and absurd entry in the series."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Reader
"Forty minutes of this movie are big dumb fun. The other 85 forget the fun part."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Fast Five boasts incredible action scenes that are all varied and equally exciting. The film is full of clean, well choreographed shots that are easy to watch and the cast works great as a whole unit, making the film's running time breeze by."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"The series has found new traction in the heist format -- resulting in a fun and immensely entertaining ride."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"That force of chaotic and unsatisfiable desire that Freud called the id is much closer to the surface in a movie like "Fast Five" than ever before in action-cinema history, and part of Lin's peculiar genius is that he barely tries to conceal it."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"As the summer of 2011 approaches with the speed of a souped-up Dodge Charger, I'm going to take my action-movie blessings where I can find them."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Has really transformed this series from camp action cinema to exciting heist cinema."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Like a shot of nitro to the franchise and shows there's plenty left in the tank."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"One film was enough, two was plenty, but five is just absurd. Undoubtedly, there will be several people who will flock to this film just because it has cars zooming back and forth, so at least some people will be pleased with it."
‑ Jeff Beck,
