Dodge Chargers get furious in Fast Five – Click above to watch video after the jump

Fast Five, the fifth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, hits theaters Friday, April 29th. Since we live in the age of instant gratification, you're able to hunt down some of the key scenes and check out the furious action before you decide to plunk down your hard-earned bucks for a ticket. In order to facilitate the decision making process, a key chase scene has made its way to YouTube courtesy of the French arm of Universal Pictures.

We'll let you decided whether or not you want to watch the clip posted after the jump. However, we will tell you that Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) use a pair of pumped-up Dodge Chargers in a... unique capacity. The tow-rating on a 5.7-liter-equipped Charger is 2,000-pounds max, and even if you double that figure we're pretty sure the director is employing a healthy scoop of automotive movie magic to shoot this scene. We'll save the real sleuthing for a future episode of Mythbusters.

Click past the jump to watch three minutes and 44 seconds of Fast Five. It goes without saying that there are massive spoilers here, right? The audio is in French, but you shouldn't have too much trouble figuring out what's going on.

      Yeah, I'll watch it. At least I know going in it's going to be ridiculous. And it's going to be a very long Dodge commercial just like Transformers is a Chevy commercial. Guilty pleasure, hell yes!

      is it me or is the duo recklessly disregarding the safety of innocent bystanders? such a potential massacre, that scene where the vault flies into the department store.

      Wow. This franchise is the closest I get to a guilty pleasure. They're ALL awful movies, but, I admit that I do enjoy the series. That had to be one of the dumbest scenes I have ever seen in a movie. This is one movie I will refuse to watch in the theater.
