Fast Five

Fast Five ★★★★

Still good fun but not as amazing as my memory lead me to believe. There's a LOT of green screen in this that I didn't notice before and many places it seems unnecessary - is it that hard to build an empty warehouse set? It's a bit more misogynist than I remember and has a scene that glorifies Gal Gadot's service in the IDF?? Oh no no no no

Knowing what's coming kinda blows apart the plotting and exposes how little there is here, but the characters are still extremely endearing and every action scene is gratifying to the maximum. Next time I'll maybe just skip through the talking bits.
