At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
As fate would have it bad guy Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) has a vengeful brother Deckard (Jason Statham) who seeks out our heroes. Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) still has memory issues. Deckard shows up in LA (and anywhere else in the world at random) as "the sins of London have followed us home."The film gets a bit weird in it effort to create over-the-top action. It seems Deckard is former British special ops who is an expert at being a ghost. His own unit is attempting to take him out as well. This becomes "a war between shadows and ghosts" as head spook Kurt Russell claims. Now in order to find Deckard, who always finds them, they must first rescue Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) who has the ultimate hacking chip called God's Eye whereby they can locate anybody in the world. This way they can track Deckard who is hunting them. The crew goes on a world tour.The film includes cars parachuting from planes; a cat fight in formal wear (Ronda Rousey): building jumping; bullet proof everything; cars with no airbags; and the destruction of LA. The action was so incredibly impossible it made me laugh along with the cheesy lines. Oh yes. They re-invented the word "cliff hanger."There was a nice tribute to Paul Walker at the end of the film.
The Fast and the Furious franchise has become fast-food for action-movie junkies; consume one meal and you're already onto the next one in a heartbeat, once it's available. Furious Seven is no exception here: we have a fast, outrageous and crazy action film that f###s the laws of physics in beautifully stupid ways, but at least it's memorable and HONEST stupidity, unlike Michael Bay's movies which fail in embracing that investing stupidity. Director James Wan knows that he's doing a movie that's basically Looney Tunes mixed with 80s-90s action-movies such as Speed, and he freaking loves what he's doing. Vin Diesel is having a ball and so is The Rock, Paul Walker (who died during production), Jason Statham and even 80s-mainstay Kurt Russell (who freaking owns every scene he's in). So get prepared for the movie-equivalent of a ready-to-eat meal and turn your brain off; it's cinematic bliss that relishes in its over-the-top nature.Furious Seven gets a rock-solid 4/5 stars.
A really good movie and not a bad action movie I really like it, the whole gang is here. Fast Five (2011) is still to me the best one and my favorite in the franchise and then it would be Furious 6 than The Fast and the Furious I think this would be my fourth favorite film in the franchise. It is an entertaining fun fast paced action film and that really a good one. But it is not perfect I have issues with the film which I will get to it but first I want to write goods about this film.I can't wait till I watch The Fate of the Furious I am getting on Blu-ray next week so yesterday I re-watch this film and I have enjoy it. Furious 7 is the seventh installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise. The film grossed $397.6 million worldwide during its opening weekend, which is the sixth highest-grossing opening of all time. The film has grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide – more than the franchise's first five installments combined – making it the highest-grossing film of the franchise after just twelve days, the third highest-grossing film of 2015 and the sixth highest-grossing film of all time. A sequel, The Fate of the Furious, was released on April 14, 2017.The film's about Dominic Toretto (Diesel), Brian O'Conner (Walker), and the rest of their team, who have returned to the United States to live normal lives after securing amnesty for their past crimes in Fast & Furious 6 (2013), until Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), a rogue special forces assassin seeking to avenge his comatose younger brother, puts the team in danger once again. The cast includes: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Djimon Hounsou, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham. I like this flick they action is crazier than ever, there's some unnecessary camera moves and this one needs an even bigger suspension of disbelief, it barely pauses in between set pieces. Kurt Russell is in this and like I have said in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 my review I hated his performance in that movie but in here I loved him he was awesome and a really good guy and likable. He has more to do in this film than he did in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto is always terrific and a bad-ass I absolutely love him. Jason Statham is a crazy motherf***** in this I have enjoyed him I always wanted Statham as a bad guy. Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz Dom's girlfriend was hot as always I have simply enjoyed her. The rest of the cast was alright.The issues with the film I have is: Why is shaky cam in the beginning of the fights between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and on the end of the fights between Vin Diesel and Jason Statham that really hurts this film. I got a migraine because of the shaking cam.Dwayne Johnson was only in the beginning of the film and for the rest of the film he was departure he appeared only on the end of the film in the final showdown I only wish he would be more in this film and he would have more to do but I still have enjoyed his performance awesome. Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto is useless in this movie she doesn't do nothing her character is just wasted and useless. I don't know why they put her character in this movie. Lucky Michelle Rodriguez fulfill the emptiness in Dom's crew. Car's with flying parachutes also doesn't fit in the film because of the metal weight parachutes can't hold that kind of metal and some unnecessary CGI was used in this film that also hurt the movie. Those are all the issues I have, I can't wait for The Fate of the Furious to see it I heard it is a good film.The rating this film get's is a A 9/10 I would have give it 10 but those issues in my opinion hurt the film. Paul Walker died in November 30 2013 so his two brothers Caleb and Cody Walker replaced him and they help to make this film right so I have enjoy from all three brothers performance. R.I.P. Paul Walker my favorite actor and my all time favorite character of the franchise Brian O'Conner. This film is dedicated to his memory which I love.
