Fast and Furious 6: all roads lead to explosions

Форсаж 6

I love a good movie. The really cool movies you want to review again and again, the writers and directors manage to keep the viewer in a state of stress, even during the second or third viewing. Perhaps, for me, these paintings are a trilogy, “Batman” movies with Adriano Celentano and many masterpieces by Steven Spielberg.

Two weeks ago, on Russian screens got another film in the series Fast & Furious («Fast and the Furious”), directed by Justin Lin. It seems that it was supposed to end for another fifth, when Vin Diesel and his family 100 millionth hit the jackpot, but the actors and the producers decided to go further. Rest of the main characters again violates the honest cop Hobbs, but this one offers a hunt for “bigger fish.” Well, no sooner said than done.

I will not recite the script of this film. For a moment, casting aside all objectivity, I will say that the “Fast and the Furious 6” I really liked it, but it is hard to entice me so I could not. Much more interesting are the various computer effects that Lin used in the process of shooting the picture.

It’s one thing when Tony Stark in “Iron Man” catches dropped passengers of the presidential plane at an altitude of five thousand meters, but quite another – to see how few cars could lead to the collapse of multi-ton Russian (!) Cargo plane. What is all this? Most of the effects in the new “Fast and the Furious” is so contrary to the laws of physics, that of a film about street racing, he becomes almost a picture of an alien invasion.

Explosions. In the “Fast and the Furious” them plenty, and the blows directed all that is possible – from police cars to large urban structures. On how the film crew turns a simple “claps” several kilograms of explosives, you can look at this video. It should be noted, is often used in film special cars in which the probability of explosion is minimized due to the absence of flammable liquids.

The strip of a lifetime

One of the most impressive scenes, perhaps, is the final race of the main characters of the cargo plane. Admittedly, it takes a long time: many viewers the impression that the length of the runway at least 50 km, because the escape velocity of such an aircraft, as a rule, more than 200 km / h Of course, no such long strips on either military base in the world.

In the photo below – the band 17/35 on the surface of a dry lake Rogers, which belongs to the Edwards Air Force Base, USA. It is the longest runway in the world with a length of 12,100 meters.


Therefore chase scene filmmakers obviously delayed, but that it does not become less colorful. For example, the triumphant rescue Toretto directly from the nose compartment of the aircraft. I’m almost ready to believe that there were no obstacles for the passage of the vehicle.

Tank weighing with Range Rover

Particularly noteworthy episode with a tank, “shifter”. With the help of “Mustang”, performed the role of the original anchors, the main characters were able to get a heavy military tank, not only to stay but also to turn over to the “back”. And this despite the fact that the weight of modern tanks are often up to 70 tons. It seems that this situation we will need to apply to the guys from “Mythbusters”.
Winged Love

And here is one more thing that made the spectators in the audience loudly applauded – Dominique save his girlfriend (Letty) from falling into the abyss after the collapse of the tank. Driving a car at a speed of about 100-120 km / h, the house is not only not broken on impact, but by Newton’s first law is trying to experience the free fall acceleration to in-flight intercept Letty. Of course, he can do it, and a couple in love lands safely on the windshield of the nearest car. As in a fairy tale.

Готовимся к прыжку

In the “Fast and the Furious” has a few more such scenes, but to avoid spoilers I will not recount them. I will say one thing: the picture really is worth the money and time.

All my criticisms, of course, can destroy only one phrase – “It’s a movie!”. I think a good thing that the same “Fast and the Furious” present such “fairy tales.” Movies can distract people from the problems of life, plunge it into his own, though not too real atmosphere. And it’s really cool.
