Fast Five trailer – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We were hoping Universal's Fast Five would be a watchable installment to the Fast and Furious franchise, and while we didn't see the flick ourselves, it appears many Americans did. According to Hollywood Reporter, the movie raked in $83.6 million over the weekend, easily giving the fifth installment of the franchise the top opening weekend of all the Fast and Furious flicks to date. The movie fared especially well at 243 Imax theaters nationwide, with sales of $8.3 million. The blockbuster film also hit the jackpot overseas, with $45 million in receipts.

The film also garnered an A from CinemaScore, which means audiences are leaving the theater satisfied. The film brought in plenty of young moviegoers, with 53 percent of viewers under the age of 25. If Universal wasn't sure what The Rock was cooking before, we're thinking they're catching a whiff now. Hit the jump to watch the Fast Five trailer one more time, and if you went and saw the movie, let us know what you thought about it in the Comments.

      Watched it opening night, i would give this movie a 8.5/10, best in the franchise. While completely absurd and unbelievable in many scenes, the movie entertains the crowd. The cast was great, a bit too much of 'reunion' feel. It was a great pop flix that doesn't take itself too seriously. The vault scene had my palm against my face at the same time as laughing out loud. This is what happens when you combine some of the best selling action movies from the last decade into 2 hours. Fast & Furious & Oceans 11 & Miami Vice & Italian Job & The Fugitive & Black Hawk Down & WWE & just a whole lot of nonsense fun and action. Movie was much more entertaining than I expected.

      I was pleasantly surprised. This movie reminded me a bit of Gone in 60 seconds, (stealing from the police lot, etc.) I was hoping for anything other than 2 Fast 2 Furious.... This movie, aside from some completely unbelievable survival issues (500' drop off of a bridge into a river and not even a sprain??) strayed about as far away from corny as the franchise could hope to while still providing a ton of (non-cgi) action. Easily the best of the series.

      Oddly enough, considering I am used to watching an action packed Ad-Fest, I was very pleasantly surprised with the new FF5. Easily the best movie of the series. I would be lying if I said that I did not find that there was more story to this movie than the ones prior, along with a few unforseen twists and turns. It wasn't the best movie I've ever seen but it was easily better than the other four with plenty of Car Porn.

      Best movie in the series. Solid, summer action movie. Nothing more, nothing less.

      What isn't there to like? Incredible scenes featuring awesome driving, fast cars, hot women, awesome cast, adrenaline filled sequences, and explosions! Again, what isn't there to like? Movie was amazingly entertaining. Well worth the money!

      It got a 69/100 from Metacritic, so not bad overall. http://www.metacritic.com/movie/fast-five

      I saw it on Friday...and I was disappointed. Sure, it was nice to have cast members from all of the rest of the movies, but I was shocked that they just completely skipped over the corny street racing scenes, which IMO make the movies what they are. They led up to them, and then skipped straight to the outcome. Wtf!?
