Artistically, there are better franchises - and certainly, there are better movies. Rarely, however, is a movie this big such unabashedly dumb fun.

Like a good car the series needs all of its parts to work. And also like a car, if you keep adding more parts, it only works better. (I know nothing about cars.)

Fast and Furious 8 knows exactly what it is and what it has to offer. [Full review in Spanish]

While The Fate of the Furious never quite reaches the heights of the last few installments, it still goes by at a breezy pace, and on the way delivers everything we've come to expect and love from this franchise.

... if the worst thing to say about the eighth movie in a 16-year franchise is that it's trying too hard, no problem.

As always the banter between Roman (Gibson) and Tej Parker (Ludacris) provides the funny, Hobbs gets an excuse to painfully body-slam several people to the floor, and Letty comes up with a clever bit of mechanical know-how to save the day.

A very fun adventure. The formula that has worked so far is still here, but it doesn't scale beyond. [Full review in Spanish]

A perfect balance of action and story, F8 seems designed to push back against all the bad things said about sequels, franchises and Hollywood's "cookie cutter" mindset. In a way, the film's message is "if you're going to do it, do it like this."

Still, this series gets its power and popularity from its salud, mi familia shtick, which as far as I can make out is perfectly genuine.

The film arrives with the brand new body, but its plot fuel is not as effective as in previous deliveries. The fans will support it, but it becomes repetitive. [Full review in Spanish]

The franchise shows that it continues to maintain a good rhythm and chemistry. [Full review in Spanish]

My favorite scene? Deckard and his Mom. This could be a film by itself.

You'll laugh and even sometimes roll your eyes and the ridiculousness on screen, but that is exactly what we want with Fast and Furious, and in that, The Fate of the Furious delivers.

Vin is king.

The Fate of the Furious tops its predecessors not in its action scenes, but by applying that familiar, reality-confounding aesthetic to its characters. The result tests the patience like nothing short of a Diesel crying scene.

It's all more ridiculous and implausible than ever. But it's so entertaining that I haven't stopped smiling yet. (Splice Today)

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.

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.

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.

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.
