#SundayReviews: "Fast & Furious 8"


So Fast & Furious 8 or The Fate of the Furious is here to take all the money in China, and all the gang is back plus extras:

Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell, and Nathalie Emmanuel.

From Google:

"With Dom and Letty married, Brian and Mia retired and the rest of the crew exonerated, the globe-trotting team has found some semblance of a normal life. They soon face an unexpected challenge when a mysterious woman named Cipher forces Dom to betray them all. Now, they must unite to bring home the man who made them a family and stop Cipher from unleashing chaos."





Well, it was better than Fast 7... Less madness (e.g. characters gaining superpowers or previously unrevealed super-assassin skills), and a more coherent plot.

However it suffers from some issues, like half the cast is superfluous, and the trailer (yeah that same one I linked above) gives away almost all the surprises that the damn film had to offer!

I liked that there is a lot more focus on certain characters though, who apparently will be getting a spin-off movie.

DON'T PAY MONEY for this movie, but it can watch. Especially avoid 3D pricing -- which is a rip-off -- because if you take off the glasses, only the far background gets blurry, while everything else remains in focus.

QBF Rating: 3.0/5
