I can’t believe I am actually saying this, but I really enjoyed Fast Five. In fact, I would probably say that it was the most fun I have had watching a movie in a long time. Have I lost all credibility? Perhaps I should preface this declaration by admitting that I saw this film in a Berlin cineplex. It was dubbed in German. I don’t speak German with the exception of being able to read a menu well enough to not order any strange dishes made out of intestines or brains (hey, I have my priorities). Also, my husband and I were the only two people in the movie theater and I may or may not have had a beer buzz going into it (in my defense, beer is literally cheaper than water there and I was thirsty!). I don’t know. It may have been a combination of any of these factors that led to my enjoyment of the latest Vin Diesel film, or it may have just been a darn fun movie. Either way, I am going into this review with fond memories fluttering around my head.
