It's all more ridiculous and implausible than ever. But it's so entertaining that I haven't stopped smiling yet. (Splice Today)
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Ridiculous is fine. Ridiculous while trying to be deep and dramatic just doesn't cut it with Vin Diesel at the forefront...and its way too long.

Autos cascade like a waterfall from the top of a parking garage; sometimes their on-board computers are cyber-jacked so that they besiege midtown Manhattan in an attack wave of shiny expensive plastic and chrome.

The sheer excess of this series that keeps pushing on the accelerator is, undeniably, kind of fun, and fans won't be disappointed. But it's a tiring kind of fun.

(Maybe) the dumbest one yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 21, 2017
Fast and Furious 8 is ridiculously large and largely ridiculous and it sure as hell knows it and it's to this series' credit that it continues to successfully exceed the boundaries of its own preposterous enjoyment.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
April 21, 2017
The nonstop action is so blatantly implausible that there's not a second's worth of genuine excitement in the whole two hours and 16 minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The Fate of the Furious is the reason moving pictures exist. Not the only reason, just the main one: the glory of dynamic motion which involves the pulse and the heart.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

F. Gary Gray, of "Friday," "The Italian Job" and "Straight Outta Compton," takes the wheel, and he manages to hang on. He doesn't improve on anything, but he doesn't stall out, either.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 20, 2017
The Fate of the Furious has plenty of callbacks to previous movies for die-hard fans to enjoy, and it's the franchise's most entertaining installment since at least Fast Five.

There's nothing new about it but there's enough to make an efficient and entertaining film that doesn't disappoint at all. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

There's no doubt that The Fate Of The Furious doesn't have the necessary power to augur a good future for the series. [Full review in Spanish]

The silly spectacle of The Fate of the Furious -- with cars speeding about and Diesel and Johnson seemingly working on two different movies -- makes it fairly irresistible. As with any multiple-car pile-up, one steers into the skid and hopes for the best.
April 20, 2017
Transcendently stupid, flat-out nuts and pretty damned irresistible, The Fate of the Furious is the eighth in the series of vroom-vroomers that started off as modest B-movie drag-race stuff ideal for triple-bills at old time drive-in theaters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Basically the action movie equivalent of your dad catching you smoking a cigarette and then making you finish the pack.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
April 20, 2017
For a movie that pretends to be an elaborate thriller, it's ridiculously simple, and just doesn't even seem to be trying anymore.
April 19, 2017
Big, , loud, fast, dumb fun -- without any brakes.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 19, 2017
Human scale and recognizable emotions are a poor match for the ever-escalating spectacles of a franchise veering cosmically-deranged one mile at a time.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 19, 2017
If you hate what the Fast movies represent, this won't win you over (try #5 or #7 for that). If you love the Fast movies, this won't disappoint.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 18, 2017
A stupendous mash of soap opera dramatics and gloriously over the top action.
