A government agent (Dwayne Johnson) persuades a criminal (Vin Diesel) and a team of auto specialists to bring in a former Special Ops agent (Luke Evans), who leads a cadre of advanced war-vehicle jockeys in crime. In a bid to escape the new team, his group causes chaos and a big surprise is uncovered. Also with Paul Walker, Gina Carano, Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez. Directed by Justin Lin. [2:10]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman in a bed are partially covered with a sheet: we see his bare chest along with her bare body except the genital area and breasts (sex is implied). A half dozen women on a plane wear short miniskirts that reveal bare thighs as one woman tells a man that he will have a good time with them (sex is implied). A man and a woman compare scars on their lower abdomens by lifting their shirts and pulling down their waistbands a bit and they almost kiss, but do not.
 Several scenes on a beach and at a car show feature dozens of women in wearing short-shorts, micro-mini skirts, halter-tops, vinyl bras or string bikinis as they dance; we see significant cleavage, bouncing buttocks and bared legs as well as one woman's buttocks in a very short skirt as she walks away from the camera. Three women wear tight slacks and tight, low-cut tank tops that reveal cleavage throughout the film. A male character wears tight black slacks and a tight black T-shirt throughout the film. A man takes away another man's shirt and trousers; the second man walks away wearing boxer shorts (we see his bare chest, back, arms, shoulders and thighs).
 We hear that a man's former female lover is dead, but that someone saw her on the street and he feels compelled to find her and resume the relationship. A man tells another man that he must buy a big diamond for a girlfriend or "be big somewhere else" (implying anatomy); the second man remarks that he sees that the first man's women friends all have a lot of big bling (jewelry).
 A pregnant woman lies in bed and we hear she is about to give birth; we later see her and her husband with an infant.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Several people are released from a London prison, but are chased to a military runway where a cargo plane begins to take off and opens its cargo hold; the ex-prisoners drive their cars inside followed by some of the people chasing them and three vehicles are left hanging off the edge of the hatch while their drivers shoot at the plane and one other; two women struggle in the cargo hold when one woman fires a spear into the other woman (no blood), knocking her out of the plane and she disappears; several vehicles outside the plane crash and burst into flame; a woman jumps onto the plane's wing, plants an explosive and slips off (she is caught by a man); another man behind him attacks them and the woman lets go of the first man, shoots the second man (no blood), falls and disappears (we later hear that she died); another man and another woman jump from the plane into a jeep, while the drivers of two other jeeps stand up in their vehicles and punch one another as they drive close until the first man punches the second man several times, picks him up and slams him into the rotating wheel of the plane in flames (we see nothing but flame and smoke); inside the plane, one man kicks a second man to the edge of the cargo doors and the second man gets sucked out the doors and disappears and the plane explodes and bursts into flames.
 A man is shot in the shoulder by a woman, he falls off screen and we see him remove a bloody bullet later; we see a little blood on gauze squares on his shoulder. In a chase scene, a man is shot off a motorcycle, falling to the pavement.
 A man drag races at night and crashes his car; we see a close-up of him lying in the flipped car as gasoline pours into the street and another man passes by and tosses in a lit match to create flames and the scene ends.
 Three prisoners with knives attack another prisoner and he knocks two unconscious, knocks down and stabs the third in the thigh twice, and bloodies the fallen man's mouth with a punch.
 Several scenes contain fistfights: One scene features a police officer beating up a prisoner, finally destroying all the furniture and light fixtures in a small room, while the prisoner lies on the floor, unconscious (no blood is shown); another scene includes three women fighting with martial arts moves and biting in a subway tunnel and one is shown with a little blood at the corner of her mouth; another scene shows six men in three separate fistfights with kicks and punches, all in an enclosed space inside an airplane cargo bay and one man suffers a bloody mouth, a lot of glass breaks, and one man falls out of the cargo doors and disappears; a third scene, in a subway hallway includes two men fighting against a third man, all using martial arts moves and the third man leaves the other two lying on the floor, groaning and the third man knocks three police officers unconscious with martial arts kicks; a fourth scene in the same subway area shows two women fighting with martial arts kicks, punches and jujitsu moves, they fall down a flight of stairs and one woman escapes into a subway train (neither woman is hurt); another fight scene shows one woman wrap handcuffs around her fist to use as a weapon (she does not injure anyone). A man shakes hands with another man and crushes the second man's hand; we see the second man's red fingers in close-up.
 In a flashback, a woman crawls out of a wrecked, flipped car and a man shoots into the car; the car explodes and the woman is thrown into a ditch (we hear that she has permanent amnesia). In a prison, a male prisoner kicks and punches a police officer and the officer falls to the floor with a broken nose (we see some blood and later, a bandage over his nose).
 A woman and her baby are kidnapped and when her husband learns of the kidnapping, he punches a criminal responsible for it in the mouth and makes him bleed (the criminal spits some blood off-screen). Two men confront a pawnshop owner about selling illegal guns; the two men leave the owner unconscious and knock out two additional men in the lobby. In a café, a man and a woman with handguns threaten a group of men and women also carrying guns and when a cell phone rings, the action stops.
 Hi-tech powered spear guns are used to fire spears into walls several times, and once into a wall between two men who are talking; a spear fires into a median wall on a highway, metal cable attached, and the tight cable flips a car and an army transport that try to cross it; we see crashes and flames, while a tank drives out of the smoke and the cars chasing the tank and cars guarding the tank all drive up and down the highway, crossing the median and driving the wrong way as they fire guns at one another and many cars crash and burn (we see no bodies or injuries).
 A man and a woman on different motor bikes pull up to an SUV speeding on a highway and jump aboard to capture a criminal at gunpoint; other men and women jump from one car to another and hang from the sides as they fire handguns and assault rifles and others stop their cars and run away, unharmed.
 A man jumps from one level of a freeway to a lower level without harm. A car hangs from a cable over a bridge, a woman falls after it and is caught midair by a man jumping form another car and they both crash into the windshield of a parked car on the bridge, unhurt (the windshield cracks).
 Two investigators survey the damage left by an attack on a military convoy and we see long trucks jackknifed and twisted on a bridge; the walls of the parking garage and other buildings in a compound crumble from a loud explosion along with massive clouds of concrete dust when a racecar fitted with a plow on the front races from the compound, enters a highway and flips cars that burst into flames.
 Much of the action in the film centers on destructive car chases and crashes among urban assault vehicles and government SUVS, tanks, trucks and cars with shooting from handguns, assault rifles, grenade- and rocket launchers. Many scenes feature car crashes with loud booms, crushed vehicles, smoke and flames and a few scenes show car explosions that light up the screen with fire. Many scenes show cars swerving in and out of traffic. Two men drag race in muscle cars along a highway above an ocean; we hear loud screeching tires and brakes (there are no injuries). A loud drag race through London at night includes squealing brakes and loud engines and swerving around traffic.
 A SWAT team surrounds a building and a male criminal escapes, unseen; the criminal drives away and men fire shots at him from rooftops but miss, a device is fired onto police cars that are beginning to follow and the device electronically locks up wheels and we hear cars crashing together and windshields shattering (we see no human injuries). In a scene at night where two men talk in an alley, each notices a red light on the other's chest over the heart and we see rooftop shooters with night scopes. A NATO military post contains many armed men carrying assault rifles.
 A man shoots the glass out of a vending machine with a large handgun and the glass shatters with loud crashing.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.
