Movie review of Fate of the Furious

Fate of the Furious - 6/10

The gang is back. This time without Paul Walker of course. And at the rate its going, three's gonna be more installations of the Fast and Furious series. Perhaps less fast and more furious. Why less fast? Because unlike its predecessors, FF8 isn't really about the cars or the racing no more. Its more action now. The action sequences are fun to watch, even though they are down right silly but some how it just isn't the same without a race. There was a race at the start of the film but that was done in such a rush, probably just to get it out of the way and go straight to the action and explosions.

Casting was alright. Charlize Theron can be a good villain. Surprised to see some cameos especially Helen Mirren. I really feel they should give more screen time to Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris, cause these two have god chemistry for comedy. Michelle Rodriguez still can't act but that's OK. Her sad crying scene was laughable. Vin Diesel unfortunately got abit too boring for me. it feels like he is got lazy. its the same old deliverance of speeches and that shit about family has gone really stale for me. The guys who stole the scenes for me are Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. All the scenes they were in were awesome. Dwayne pretty much delivered his lines like he was the Rock in WWE. I don't really think he will be returning to the FF franchise because of the beef he has with Vin Diesel which hasn't been solved apparently. I didn't really give two shits either.
Jason did his scenes pretty much how he does in all of his movies. The plane sequence was all him.

Scenes with the submarine are entertaining and quite exciting even though its stupid. Then there is that family shit again in the last scene where Dom waits until the very end to reveal his son's first name which any idiot could have guessed it.

Overall, if you are a fan of the series, you're gonna enjoy it but watching it on a weekday is fine. Those who aren't, just wait for it to be on cable.
