In theaters now is Justin Lin's Fast & Furious 6, the latest action-packed, NOS-fueled, adrenaline-filled sequel in the Fast and the Furious franchise started in 2001. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and many more return from the fifth movie to continue an international chase for a ruthless villain played by Luke Evans. Is this one better than the last movie? Is this the best one yet? If you've seen it, leave a comment with your own thoughts on Lin's Fast & Furious 6.

Note: I haven't been able to see this yet, as I have been at the Cannes Film Festival for the last two weeks. However, in the meantime, we can start the engines with this quote from our own Jeremy Kirk's review: "The action in Furious 6 energizes the audience, but the story here energizes the bonds of all of these characters. That's needed where Furious 6 ends up, full circle to Tokyo Drift and evidently the end of Lin's run at the steering wheel. His four-film arc has allowed the Fast and the Furious series to transcend beyond the entertainment value of the first film as well as the general laziness of 2 Fast 2 Furious, the second film."
