If you’ve recently watched Fast Five you will know just how mind-blasting it was. It was so mind-blasting that if you were to go in to the cinemas after the show ended, you’ll find exploded brain remainings all over the place and one pity cleaning lady with a mop, cussing and swearing the director Justin Lin, his ancestor and perhaps his ancestor’s ancestor. Trust me, it literally blast minds.
There is however, a scene in the movie that was censored and never aired in cinemas all around the world. Not even one. It was said to have infringed the copyrights of another relatively renowned movie. There are also reports that this particular scene stirred a riot in Greece, for it was deem offensive to the Greek culture and history. Today, I’m bearing a very great risk uploading a screenshot of said censored scene here. Therefore, PLEASE appreciate this peril that I’m putting my life in.
It takes place during the meeting between Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) at the underground racers’ gathering. When officer Hobbs wanted to arrest Dom, the gathering of racers took out their guns and pointed at Hobbs and his men. Dom went on raising his palms up and said in a firm and intimidating manner, “This is Brazil!”
Now, in the movie, it actually went on seeing officer Hobbs leaving the place with his crew of big-ass muscular man. But here’s the uncensored version. Before Hobbs left the place, King Leonidas from 300 (played by Gerard Butler) actually made an appearance and said something even intimidating, which was the main reason that made Hobbs leave because he nearly wet his pants out of sheer fear.
It was really a wise choice for Hobbs to leave because you won’t want 300 gruesome Spartans killing the shit out of you with their bare hands and oversized spears. Good call, Hobbs, good call.
