I bought this movie along with the F&F 1-5 set while it was on sale to have my collection complete (until F&F7 at least). I bought this one with the Steelbook case and it is easily the best case of the 6 movies. The artwork is also much better than the bland, bargain-bin covers of the first set of 5.
One of my favorite things they worked into this Blu-ray is the homage to Paul Walker (Brian O'Connor) right after the Universal Studios segment when you first put in the disc. It follows him briefly through each of the five movies he was in (he was not in Tokyo Drift) and gives him a heartfelt goodbye. RIP, Paul Walker.
The movie itself is your pretty typical action movie, which for me isn't a negative. So you should expect exciting action scenes, fire, explosions, high speeds, fist fighting, and a ridiculous storyline with lots of plot holes. But if you know what to expect going in, you shouldn't have a hard time enjoying it! Very few, if any, of the movies are believable (the first one is probably the least ridiculous, story-wise), but they still lay out an interesting story and plenty of action/racing scenes. Works for me!
I won't spoil anything, but there is an especially ridiculous airplane scene in this one, that is really cool, but easily one of the most ridiculous 15 minute segments I've ever seen (short of them stealing the vault in Rio from Fast Five). But you get to watch Toretto (Vin Diesel) fight Hobbs (Johnson) along with some other unknown beefcake guy. Hard not to enjoy some of these crazy fights and racing scenes.
The movie ties in with F&F: Tokyo Drift at the end (since F&F: TD is the latest one in the F&F timeline), and introduces a new character to headline as the "bad guy" in F&F 7... Jason Freakin' Statham. So it really gets you excited for the next movie, though due to Paul Walker's untimely passing, leaves us unsure of how that will affect production and overall progression of the F&F timeline. I really hope they do a competent job re-engineering F&F 7 to properly pay respect to Paul Walker and his Brian O'Connor character.
