Trivia

During the London premiere of Furious 7 (2015), Helen Mirren raved about the film and her wish to appear in a role if there would be a sequel been made. She would reiterate her wish in an appearance on The Graham Norton Show (2007) saying that she wouldn't need 'to act' and would just have fun on the movie. Word got round to Diesel who wrote a role for her in this movie. See more »

Goofs

When Dom is cutting a hole in the gas tank of the Russian Limo with the saw, the sparks from doing that would have ignited the gas fumes and the resulting fire would have negated the threat of the flare. See more »

The Fate of the Furious Review
21 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

So, all the promotional material that anyone has seen for this movie has stated the movies is called The Fate of the Furious. Although, the title card for the movie simply says Fast and Furious 8. I don't know what the actual title is, but it doesn't change the movie. Here's what I thought.

Synopsis: 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. Starring: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludicrous, Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood Director: F. Gary Grey

The movies have steadily been getting better since the fiasco of Tokyo Drift. I do have to say, this one took a small step back. It is still an exceptional movie, but it wasn't as good as seven with the sentimental value or five with the all-around great movie.

And by the way, the mention I just used is all you're going to get about the Paul Walker situation. They did a good job of keeping the characters involved with him out of the movie.

I do have say, the only thing I didn't like about the movie was the lack of story here. You didn't find out what Cipher was doing until the movie was almost over. And, if you remember the end of six where there were two major action scenes within twenty minutes of each other, it happened here as well. Maybe if they had about another twenty to thirty minutes of movie they could have added more.

As far as the story of the family goes here, it was okay. Sure, you had a few more people added to the movie, but that's okay. Kind of had to happen, although I don't think two of them are going to be part of the family come FF10. All the actors did step up their game a bit for this movie. They showed why they want to keep the franchise going. Scott Eastwood coming in was okay. He didn't really show anything different, but apparently he is supposed to become more centralized in the next movie.

Bringing in a new director did give the movie a since of something different. We pretty much had the same director for the last four movies. Grey offered a different point of view on the action here. Did I like it? It was okay. He used a lot of jump cuts and close- combat camera methods. I'm not a fan of those, but I'll still watch the movie.

The main selling point of the movie was the cars and the action. Neither one disappointed in the end. There were several parts in the movie where the action was some of the best in the series (see the plane scene at the end), and some of the best cars in the movie, well at least one. And that one didn't even race. You saw it drive at the beginning of the movie. The '63 Impala was just gorgeous.

Final Thoughts: Definitely in the top three of the series so far. Go watch the movie. I think watching it on IMAX did give more of an advantage. Again, watch it.

Rating: 8 out of 10
