Fast and the Furious 6 is the perfect film to kick off summer. It has everything you could ever want from a summer blockbuster. Action? Check. Explosions? Double check. More action? Check, and mate.
This film, which is the 6th installment of the F/F franchise, answers the questions we’ve all asked ourselves. Questions like: “What would happen if I were to jump out of my car and drop 30 feet onto the hood of another speeding car?” Or: “Can I drive this car through the nose of a cargo plane just before takeoff?”
It may sound ridiculous, but the reason we don’t follow through on these thoughts is the exact reason we go to the movies in the first place. You wouldn’t pay $13 to watch 2 hours of a person grocery shopping, or searching for his TV remote, or trying to come up with a third clever thing for his list, would you? Of course not. Normal people’s lives are boring. Vin Diesel’s is not.
However, if we were to try any one of the stunts featured throughout the movie, we’d have our driving privileges suspended indefinitely. Take a look at our infographic to see a detailed account of all the traffic laws broken throughout the course of the film, and the fines they would incur in real life.
Living vicariously through this film is almost therapeutic for those of us with lead feet and the need for speed – so long as we can come back to reality after leaving the theater.
So rather than doing anything fast and/or furious on your own, get yourself a jumbo popcorn and some Red Vines, sit back, and enjoy the show.
