The Fate of the Furious Reviews

Fate of the Furious is the worst film in the Fast and Furious series since the abysmal, forgettable 2 Fast 2 Furious.
April 13, 2017
Director F. Gary Gray is a high-end journeyman, and clearly any exposition is merely grist to the mill before the chases and explosions and crazy s--- can resume. And there is an awful lot of that.
April 25, 2017
Turbo charged and thoroughly mechanical, The Fate of the Furious is an empty-headed, essentially soulless popcorn film with modest aspirations in every regard but box office.
April 12, 2017
Is it so much to ask for dialogue that doesn't make you roll your eyes throughout "F8"? Or, you know, a story that adds up?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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]

If you've spent the last sixteen years investing in the family and their ragtag tapestry, you might find yourself a little disappointed.

No one thinks these are good movies. The question becomes, "Did this film numb your senses enough to forget the troubles of your life for 2 hours and 19 minutes?" Sort of!
April 13, 2017
The villain is weak, the big plot twist speaks to the series' exhaustion of original ideas, and all the crashing and vrooming is just getting bigger, not better.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
April 12, 2017
The strangest, darkest, most outlandishly bizarre entry in the series.

April 12, 2017
Everything blows up, nothing is at stake and Dom's team looks like the Power Rangers, except more cartoon-like.

April 14, 2017
A step back from the three previous films because they have not managed Brian O'Conner's absence. [Full review in Spanish]
April 12, 2017
Even as Fate has its fun and chases its highs (a few of which are pretty satisfying), it's hard to shake the growing sensation that the bloom might be coming off the rose.

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.

April 10, 2017
Gray's prosaic style robs Fate of the Furious of any real sense of self-awareness or humor, which could never be said about Lin or Wan's installments.
April 13, 2017
While there are a few fantastic moments to relish in Fate of the Furious, it seems Gray doesn't really get what got people so excited about this franchise.
April 12, 2017
The action has become incoherent, largely past the point of enjoyability.
April 12, 2017
The film finally tips the franchise over from modestly thoughtful stupidity into tedious, loud inanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 12, 2017
Buckle up knowing that this once-gritty franchise has officially reached the point of no return.

I get that these movies are not primarily targeted at English-speaking audiences, but they've got a writer (Chris Morgan, who's done a half-dozen of these) on payroll. He could try writing a little. It would pass the time.
April 21, 2017
(Maybe) the dumbest one yet.
