Episode 199.Supplemental Reading: Fast Five 2



In 2011, a man had a dream. A dream to create the best action/car/heist movie of all time set in Brazil, using an already established franchise and characters people already knew. Unfortunately, Hannah Barbara would not give up the rights to Speed Buggy, so Justin Lin had to fall back to The Fast and Furious Franchise instead. For fun, he brought along Chris Morgan, writer of the previous film, for a lark and knocked the entire movie out of the park. It’s all here.

Then, in 2018, two men thrown through time found a chance to rewatch that move again for the first time. They were supposed to be fixing the time stream, but…, well, who’s to say what they were and weren’t supposed to do. The instructions were unclear. All this talk of mattresses got confusing. But here were are. In 2018. Again. What a ride.
