Along with all of the nonsense, Furious 7 is built on a series of forced dialogues and a bad mix of different movie genres that make the story hard to believe.

I have now seen all of the Rápido y Furioso movies, and I can recall almost no salient details about any of them.

It remains a reliably entertaining series but if its to go on much longer those in creative control will have to sit down and think hard about how to give future sequels more life than pyrotechnic polish.
April 3, 2015
A tedious, vapid and over-produced bore that will surely please the shallow masses who are unashamedly entertained by bread and circuses.

Has a lot of the same problems as its most recent predecessors. The dialogue is flat, the action scenes are over-edited so that it's not always clear what you're looking at, and situations often get so implausible that it becomes a distraction.

James Wan directs Furious 7 like a boy tossing his Matchbox cars and action figures down the steps.
April 3, 2015
The latest instalment of the franchise cost a pretty penny, yet often feels less like a slick blockbuster than a demented day-time soap.

It's time to come back to earth, which this film only does in its memorial coda to Paul Walker, a fine sendoff which doesn't take the road most traveled.

...lazy and annoying, devoid of any hint of what might have once made it interesting. But that is not to say that there aren't exciting moments, it's just that none of them add up to anything we care about.

It's all entertaining enough, I suppose. But there's a twisted coldness under the action that's anxiously concealed by the characters' refrains of the importance of "family" and sticking together and other ostensibly nice stuff.

Spectacular action, chases, races and fight scenes are combined with plotting and dialogue of mind-numbing crudity and plenty of shameless product placement in the latest sequel.

What transpires is grimmer than what's come before, and without the sense of fun, the absurdity of the action becomes less enjoyable.
April 2, 2015
A huge, galumphing bore...the maelstrom of mayhem very quickly becomes an orgy of stupidity, and a remarkably tedious one at that.
April 2, 2015
The story takes place in LA, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, and the Caucasus Mountains, yet Wan has so few ideas about how to choreograph and edit action that the elaborate stunt sequences all feel exactly the same.
April 2, 2015
The grunted catch-phrases, the implausible escapes, the plot holes the size of the Bonneville Salt Flats - it's all pitched at a particular audience like a dog whistle that fully grown humans can't hear.
April 2, 2015
This is a cockamamie amalgamation of absurd car chases, ridiculous fights, and more noise than you can tolerate blasting away at you for almost 2 1/2 hours with no coherent plot or raison d'être outside of big box office.
April 2, 2015
In Furious 7, the unstoppable Fast and the Furious franchise sputters and stalls, edging from spectacular, tongue-in-cheek B-movie fun to soulless, insulting inanity.
April 2, 2015
Big and numbingly loud, "Furious 7" jets around the globe so we can watch cars crash, explode and repeatedly defy gravity. If that sounds like a great way to spend two hours and 17 minutes, read no more.

Physics and Gravity be Damned! "Furious 7" Aims to Please.
April 2, 2015
Alternately entertaining and annoying.
