It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
It was very worst fast and furious movie I see. I love Paul walker init
Never has so much acting talent been wasted on such a stupid plot.
This movie is a bit better than the rest of "Fast&"... more funny moments and dialogues and full of cool ideas with a bit of fictional details :) a good choice for a chilled night
The eighth outing for the automotive crew makes the Oceans film cast list look small. When acting royalty, in the shape of Dame Helen Mirren are uncredited, you have to question why. Given the script, it was never going to win her another Oscar . The car stunts try to out do the previous seven films, with big explosions and a seemingly unlimited number of crashing cars. Yet compared to the previous films, the street racing and precision driving that made the previous films so enjoyable has been replaced with Dwayne Johnson coaching little league soccer and my favourite character: baby Toretto (James Ayoub/Carlos De La Hoz), who totally upstages Jason Statham - who is in competition with Tyrese Gibson for the most amusing scene - without speaking a single word.
The film is a bunch of set pieces, with a bit of story to tie them together; cliches of being able to avoid any injuries while facing an army of heavy fire or wrecking a city with technology that would make Elon Musk jealous and just walking away.Charlize Theron makes for a decent foe, though for all her apparent power and infamy, her execution leaves a lot to be desired, as well as enough room for the usual array of supped up muscle cars to drive all over and through it.
While Kurt Russell reprises his role as Mr Nobody, basically taking the role of trying to direct the super egos by being secretive/mysterious and cool at the same time.Whether the next film in the series has Dom's nitrous boosted stallion sporting ISO fix seats, I don't know. But given kids born when the series started can now drive themselves, I wouldn't put it past the directors having him driving a V8 minivan a quarter mile at a time.
