The Fate of the Furious

Suspension of disbelief in overdrive.

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and crew are quite an accomplished lot now, what with having around 7 movies under their belt. It's for this reason Cypher (Charlize Theron) decides that the only way to best them is to simply turn Dom against them.

The result is a fantastical action packed movie with some crazy stunts, nice action sequences, many unbelievable plot points, graphical hacking (lol), and quite a number of very nice automobiles (which is mandatory in this series). Your suspension of disbelief will be well and truly tested, more so than any previous Furious movie.

This is far from the most ridiculous part.

It's also great that they have plot continuity from the previous films and that there are many returning faces. Definitely entertaining if you can turn your brain off for long enough. I give it 3 crucifix necklaces out of 5 and would definitely watch it again. For best effect, you should at least watch the previous 2 movies in the franchise though.


  1. This movie was by far the funniest comedy I've ever seen. I had a grin on my face the entire time.

    Wait, what's that you say? It's an action/adventure and not a comedy? Sure could have fooled me.....

    1. I bet you loved the zombie car part. :P

    2. Funny thing is, I watched it with my manager on the clock as a "team building" exercise. He's got a thing for Charlize Theron, you see..... But anyway, after it was over, with his typical gift for understatement he simply said "I don't think some of those things could have actually happened..."
