The official plot synopsis for Fast & Furious 6 has been released, and while people don’t really expect much in the way of story from the vehicle-oriented action movie franchise, it is still interesting to see the kind of story they come up with as an excuse to parade cars in front of you for 2 hours.
The film will pick up where Fast Five left off, with the main difference being that Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson are now on the same team. The official synopsis:
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).
The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
Fast & Furious 6 will open in the UK on 24 May 2013.
