With Fast Five (2011), director Justin Lin – with a little help from Dwayne Johnson’s likeable Agent Hobbs – managed to reinvigorate the then-ailing Fast & Furious franchise. Racing to $626 million at the global box office, it’s no surprise that everyone is back for another round of vehicular warfare. Offering more of the high-octane action that the series is famous for, Lin’s Fast & Furious 6 (2013) is easily the most ridiculous blockbuster of 2013 thus far; and also one of the most enjoyable.
Summer blockbuster season is almost upon us, and as usual there is an exciting assortment of big budget films heading our way. From post-apocalyptic sci-fi’s After Earth and Oblivion, to eagerly anticipated superhero flicks Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel, the slate for the next 3 months is enticing.
I’ve included all the above and more blockbusters in a 3 minute montage below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and comment!
