Things have changed in this 5th installment of the “Fast & Furious” series: the stars are more pumped, Dwayne Johnson is the antagonist and it’s more about action than the cars. This time Van Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster are on the run in Rio, where they decide to stage one big final robbery. The movie basically becomes a heist flick that’s bookended by two elaborate, action-packed chases. Sure, there’s lots of fast driving, but it’s not about racing. Still, there’s plenty of macho posturing and quick-cut fights to add that testosterone edge. Stay thru the credits until you get a double cameo surprise
GAY ANGLE: Although the bulging biceps abound, nobody takes off their shirt (except one hot extra).
Jerry Williams reviewed movies for WTVR-TV for 14 years and for Style Weekly for 10 years. When he launched his own website in 1998 at TVJerry.com, he took his reviews to the Internet. Through those hundreds of reviews, Jerry kept his sexual orientation muted. So, he's excited to be adding "gay angles" to his postings for GayRVA.com.
