Tonight in HD: March 18

Sky Movies Premiere: Fast Five (Sky 20, 8.30, 5.1) Fast 5 is an Ocean’s Eleven on wheels that reunites characters from the first four movies for a $100 million scam where they try to rob the drug-dealing dude who runs Rio by breaking into a police station where the loot is stashed. One gang member’s assessment of the plan also sums up the preposterous but energetic plot: “It’s gone from mission impossible to mission in-freakin’-sanity!” A terrific addition to the cast is carjacker Vin Diesel’s newest nemesis, Dwyane Johnson, as the muscle car of federal agents.
