Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (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 (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (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. Written by
When Hobbs arrives at the barbecue Roman remarks that they "better hide the baby oil," to which Hobbs replies with "you better hide that big ass forehead." Hobbs line was improvised by Dwayne Johnson, so Ludacris spitting out his drink and Tyrese Gibson being at a loss for words are both genuine reactions. See more »

I may not remember anything, but I know one thing about myself. Nobody makes me do anything I don't want to.

After the character credits following the film, we're shown Han's final race from The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006). However, we start seeing angles of it from inside a car, where a gloved hand is adjusting switches and preparing to move. As in _Tokyo Drift_, a Mercedes slams into Han's car, but it doesn't kill him outright. The driver of the Mercedes, an unnamed character played by Jason Statham, emerges from his car; he then pulls the 'cross necklace' (seen earlier in the film and also the one from Fast Five and Four) from his pocket and throws it into the fuel spill/the direction of Han's car. Han's car then explodes from the fuel leak and subsequent engine fire. Jason Statham's character then makes a call, saying, "Dominic Toretto. You don't know me. You're about to." See more »
To say this is a guilty pleasure would be putting it mildly. Since the first time I saw 'The Fast and The Furious' 12 years ago, I knew I found my car/mayhem fix. Although I never thought it would last to see iteration #6, I was more eager this time around than for the first. No surprises, besides the unpredictable nature of Owen Shaw. The only real curveball was the substantiation of an Internet rumor that Jason Statham joined 'Fast 6'. Well, sorta -- end credits. After the audience "ooooohh's" at Statham's revealing, I couldn't wait, yet again, for the 7th!
Fun factoid: This movie marked the reuniting of 2 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' characters. Jason Statham (Bacon) and Stephen Marcus (Nick the Greek) playing the CCTV supervisor opposite Lucas Hobbs. :)
