Storyline

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the rest of the crew has been exonerated-the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage... and to bring home the man who made them a family.

Absurd and Outrageous Fun
15 April 2017 | by nandidotSee all my reviews

Do you remember eating Pop Rocks as a kid? The popping candy that created a fizzy sensation in your mouth as it dissolved was more about fun than taste. 'The Fate of the Furious' reminded me of that long forgotten candy. The 8th film in the Fast & Furious series arrives in theatres this weekend with much hype and a billion dollar movie behind it. Many, myself included, thought the series should have ended with number 7. The death of a beloved star, the emotional quotient, and an adrenaline filled plot took the story to new heights and it looked like the series would end on a high. But, of course not. You don't walk away from a money making machine. You milk it for all its worth. And as it turns out, there's some juice left in the franchise still.

Dominic Toretto, lead star Vin Diesel, betrays his family and everything he stands for when he walks away from his life to work for the evil genius, Cipher (ingeniously portrayed by Charlize Theron). Together they steal nuclear codes and destroy cities while Dom's team, which now includes a previous villain- Deckard Shaw, hunts him down across the globe. Why has Dom gone rogue? Well, you'll see the answer coming from a mile away but watch the movie anyway.

The plot isn't innovative, in fact it's the weakest one from the last 3 films, but fans won't care… too much. The cars are faster, the stunts more unbelievable, world domination seems to be a finger click away, and stars still display their muscles more than their acting chops. The reason this series works is because it embraces the over the top, outrageous fun. It doesn't shy away from doing the impossible (read: unbelievable). Take the sequence in New York, for example, which is absurd but wildly imaginative. Keep the crazy alive, team.

The cast is an ensemble of stars led by Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Jason Statham. Not one can suggest acting skills as their claim to fame. The franchise needs stars, though, the more you can overstuff the better. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the ample screen time given to Charlize Theron's Cipher. I enjoyed watching her cause chaos without doing much actual heavy lifting. Most villains bash their way through the narrative; she smiles and presses a key. Refreshing!

The Fate of the Furious is not nearly as good at Fast Five or Furious Seven. 5 reinvented the franchise and 7 was an emotional roller-coaster yet F8 still provides decent fuel to an already raging series. There is a distinct lack of emotional connect and a Paul Walker sized hole in the plot but if fun is what you're looking to have at the movies, you won't be disappointed. I was entertained. Bring on 9 and 10, let's see how far this can go.
