  • I thought for sure the ‘Fast Five’ wave of positive reviews would pass once it really started to get screened but it seems to be only on its way up. Apparently it has some really well-done action sequences. The distinction between a good action film and a bad action film is its ability to carefully choreograph the action and keep it at a pace that allows the audience to follow everything that is happening. It sounds like ‘Fast Five’ may be one such film.
