Many people like to watch general Hollywood movies. It has cool actions and contains very energetic scenes. One of the most famous Hollywood action movies is Fast & Furious series. In this summer in this year, a new episode of Fast & Furious has rolled out in the many expects of the big fans of Fast & Furious Series. From this episode, Paul Walker sadly could not collaborate with this movie by the tragic traffic accident happened to him a few years ago. Before this episode, Paul Walker, who acted Brian, was the main character of this series. However, after he died of a miserable accident, it is not an exaggeration to say that Vin Diesel is the main character.
Other than the previous episodes, the plot has changed to make audiences keep nervous.
In this movie, I feel director tried to change the flow of the story unexpected way. For example,
in this movie, they changed the role of an actor in good and evil. For example, maybe this can be a spoiler, that the evil character changes to the good side and main hero character changes to the evil side for the moment of the movie. In this movie, Dom Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, plays some evil role in this episode. Many of you may see that he is betraying his team. Also, this is new form of
Hollywood action movie. Traditionally, many Hollywood movies were just simply that the male heroes defeat evil character by fancy actions. However, in this movie, the female comes as an evil
character who wants to get a nuclear weapon and hold power over the world. It is secret to tell you that this evil character will success or not for her purpose, but this movie has tension when you watch this whole movie.
Modern series of Fast & Furious changed a lot when compared to previous seasons decade ago. In the early series of this movie, the focus of these movies is car racing. Defeating evils from wicked act seems weak in the early series. Moreover, the structure of the story is mainly focused on car racing. However, season 4 came out, the plot of this movie has changed. The focus of this series has changed to chasing evils and defeating them. This episode is about chasing and preventing Cipher, who is the female villain in this movie, from launching stolen nuclear weapons. Moreover, the point is that the villain does not stay in the fixed base. In this movie, she stays in the air with her special aircraft. I assume this also is one of the differences between Hollywood action movies.
The trend of a movie is changing continuously. The representative example is Star Wars Series. On the movie of Star Wars classic episodes (Ep 1~6), the hero of the story is drawn as a male character. However, from the episode 7 which came out in 2016, the main character changes to woman. This means women's authority has risen and it has an effect on diminishing sexual inequality even in the movie. Moreover, technology has been developed in the movie these days. In Fast & Furious 8, there is one scene that the villain hacks all of the cars in New York City and controls them remotely. This can be interpreted that we must care about security as the
technology develops because our crucial information can be exposed to others. Also, in this
movie, there is a server that can control and track people and machine. This program is shown in
the Terminator series. The Skynet and God's Eye is the networking system that tracking person

Weird, my review for this seems to have not posted / disappeared, so trying again.

Great action. Love the cars on ice versus sub scenario.

Some new faces, and new life. A shocking loss of one of the family.

Did I just imagine that this is trying to get more respectful towards women? Hmmm, could just be my imagination.

The usual nostalgic get together at the end. And, as usual for the series, entertaining characters and plenty of stunts.

The rock and jason's banter is the only reason I watch these now. The rest of the film is trash.

Fun to watch and keeping true form with the matriculation of the franchise, Diesel and crew don't dissappoint. The story is thin, the plot predictable but its high octane fun coupled with special effects eye candy.

Outstanding cars catch your eye like diamonds and gold to the trained expert. When you see it you know you're guaranteed a visual that will keep you coming back for more.

I said no way I'll see this movie, it's the same concept over and over again with the same "family" that somehow softens the blow that these are criminals. I counted 17 times they used that. Maybe there will be 17 of these instant replays of the same script.

Dom Toretto played by the mono - syllabic Vin Diesel does turn a twist to the "Live fast, die young, and have a good-looking corpse." a quote James Dean used from time to time, before the careful what you wish for took place in 1955. Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Stratham) show their action chops and athletic skills that makes the other members of the family comic relief bearable. "You earned my Respect" will not be equated with some of the bad action sequences, (spoiler alert) Hobbs deflecting a high powered torpedo while someone held the wheel while being chased by a nuclear submarine. Ok now that's a stretch, no matter how much you believe they can do.

I get it have some fun with it. Cipher has that Black Widow charm throughout the movie, Charlize Theron was equal parts bad, cunning and visually captured the scenes she was in. Helen Mirren showed her flexibility to take on roles to have a measure of success as Deckard's mom and is a treat whenever she is on camera.

I guess Mr. Nobody, played by Kurt Russell, brought this viewer some memorable moments. It's good to see these actors have some fun and leave a few good scenes to show how much can be done with the same concept. Wait for the "Know your audience" remark. Very funny.

The visuals and the opening scenes in Cuba were outstanding, it draws you in like Cipher does into a web of mystery and just plain fun to watch. The cars, people and sites are beautiful and I promise l won't see the next one like this one. Action packed and gave a good booster Car Nitrous Injection System to this humble viewer's heart. This is what the doctor ordered enjoy.

I don't know about you guys, but I think "Furious 7" should have been the last one in the franchise. Sure, it was cool to see Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson kick ass together on the big screen, but was it enough though? Hell, even Charlize Theron wasn't good of a villain here, and she's one of the best actors around. "The Fate of the Furious" is a big step back in both storytelling and action, since everything looked like it was shot behind a green screen. There's so much you can do behind the wheels, which is why they should use a lot CGI to make things happen. Maybe it's time to go back to street racing since that's more thrilling than watching explosions pop out everywhere.

The franchise known for its fast cars and the "best crew in the world," blessed us with yet another spectacular movie. The eighth installment of the franchise, Fast and Furious, brought both action and somewhat comedy (by Roman Pierce) to the big screen earlier this year. Generating nearly a hundred million dollars in its opening week, the movie was a success. I, for one, enjoyed the movie as much as everyone else in the theatre. However, I'm somewhat dissatisfied with the turn the franchise took to some extent.
With his son and baby mama being held hostage by cipher for her biddings, the crew leader (Dom) must go rogue and turn on his. In doing so, his crew is forced to hunt him down and stop him with the help of a convict (Deckard), Hobbs and Mr. Nobody. This showed that the crew is ready to stop anyone, even one of their own, at any cost if they have to. Adding nuclear weapons in the mix, nobody can accuse this latest adventure of playing for small stakes. Still, the Fate of the Furious, which eschews designating its sequel status numerically, only sporadically sparks to life, with the best recurring bit involving the macho banter between Dwayne Johnson's Hobbs and Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw, which eventually prompts even these tough guys to burst out laughing.
From An orange Lamborghini to a submarine in Russia and hacking cars halfway across the world, the fate of the furious is shied away from its original movie. The opening scene, however, showed promise as it's a classic fast, an exhilarating street race in Havana that Dom wins by stripping down an old Junker to its barest bones and giving it a flaming shot of NOS. It's the one classical old-school race in the entire movie, and it's a true rouser, with Havana making for the most decorous of Old World mazes, and Dom, in the home stretch, driving the car in reverse, its engine engulfed in flame. But when a slow-motion overhead shot shows him inching ahead across the finish line. No one anticipated that a movie that once begun as a bunch of illegal street racers robbing petroleum would later escalate to juggling not only nukes but an EMP device and a Russian submarine.
Overall, The Fate of the Furious is a movie where Vin Diesel races a car that's on fire - backward, Jason Statham battles untold minions on a plane, all while holding a baby. During the climax, the crew has to outrace a submarine. And then somewhere in the middle, an innocent supporting character is shot in the head by Charlize Theron's Cipher, execution-style.
"The Fate of the Furious" isn't the first movie to dramatically shift gears, slipping an unpleasant death into a movie that otherwise didn't give a care about human life. There's one in "Fast & Furious 6." As a movie whose climax involved the longest airport runway in history ends, we see Han, a quiet yet very likable member of the franchise, walking around, minding his own business, when all of a sudden there's a big explosion, followed by the first appearance of Statham's Deckard Shaw, who swings by to announce himself the bad guy of the next sequel by shooting Han in the head.
