In the first five "Fast and Furious" movies, Brian (Paul Walker) stopped criminals in their tracks by working undercover with the police. In "Fast and Furious 5," Dom and Brian worked together again to knock out a Rio Kingpin’s empire – and you thought it couldn’t get more exciting than that? This was the film that brought this franchise along with Vin Diesel & Dwayne Johnson's action stardom back.
For those die hard "Fast and Furious" fans, Universal brings back Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Walker) from their Rio heist to chase down Owen Shaw’s (played by Luke Evans) gang that has been stealing cars over 12 countries. Supposedly, "Fast and Furious 6," directed by Justin Lin, has more action, bigger sets and faster cars than the first five movies, including the Nissan GT-R, which can be purchased from most Nissan dealers at a used car dealership near you.
A Fast Moving Plot
Since Dom and his crew have to stop the gang of skilled mercenary drivers, they have to beat them at their own game. Hobbs agrees to give Dom and his crew full pardons for stopping the organization before it steals more cars and kills more people.
And added to the drama, Dom’s long lost love, Letty – whom Dom thought was dead – is back in the mix and on the wrong side of the tracks as second in command of Shaw’s mercenary drivers.

More Fast Facts
Fast Fact #1: This time around – and for the first time in the "Fast and Furious" history – the “bad guy” is an archetypal villain. Shaw and his gang hijacks military components and technology to resell on the black market. Instead of being about money this time, Fast 6 is about catching the bad guy, making it different than the first five movies.
Fast Fact #2: While most of "Fast 6" was filmed in England, viewers also get glimpses of Glasgow, Scotland, the Canary Islands and Los Angeles.
Fast Fact #3: While all of the "Fast and Furious" movies feature unique cars, this one has – in addition to foreign speed racers, such as the Nissan GT-R and American muscle cars such as the Mustang – a tank. It also features a flip car: A car with futuristic looks and a low, pointed nose that hits cars low enough to make them flip over.
Fast Fact #4: For those who love action films with hand-to-hand fighting, tighten your seatbelts. At one point in "Fast 6," there are seven fights going on at the same time.
There are some rumors about filming yet another "Fast and Furious" movie, says online magazine Heavy.com; Vin Diesel said, “I think you’ll see a shift in 7. I think in 7 you’ll see kind of a return to the core… a kickoff to the next triology.”
Paul Walker said that "['Fast 6'] ties up all the loose ends – making 4, 5 and 6 the perfect package.” He also hinted that if 'Fast 7' was made that it would be “just the beginning.” Are producers planning yet another trilogy?
