The Fate of the Furious: Review

The series continues to defy all logic, with nuclear submarines to self-driven cars, proving to be thrilling as ever. Fast and Furious never fails to deliver for the audience.

The plot is of the story is ever so engaging, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) siding with master villain Cipher (Charlize Theron)  and betraying his family or ohana, due to reasons unknown. The team comprising of Letty, Tej, Ramsey, Roman and ex-agent Luke Hobbs face one of their toughest challenges yet, stopping Dom, now that he has seemingly turned rogue.

The Fate of the Furious continues to show that there is no limit to the power of cars, defying logic with car bombs and turbojet engines for cars.

The movie also brings back Deckard Shaw ( Jason Statham), the antagonist of Fast and Furious 7. He has quite a few hard-hitting combat sequences, both hilarious and entertaining.

Dwayne Johnson, who reprises his role as Luke Hobbs, is hilarious, injecting fun and coolness whenever necessary. He has his glorious moments as well, like drifting a torpedo away from danger and showing off his tank masculinity.

Charlize Theron is excellent as the creepy Cipher, the tech-savvy terrorist behind the curtains, who manipulates Dom. She emits an uneasy tension with her mind games and cold-blooded actions, making her a diabolic villain indeed. It would be nice to see her returning in coming sequels.

The Manhattan sequence is the best part of the movie, with Cipher displaying her wicked skills to hack all auto-drive cars. Dom also proves why he’s the best racer there is in this sequence.

One notable downside is in Mr.Nobody’s assistant (Scott Eastwood): his debut performance in the series seems rather average and he lacked the tone and mood that matches the hype of the franchise.

Ultimately, Fast and Furious 8 is all about family, as it has been for recent editions already.

The film is as great as previous editions, and you can bet that the Fast and Furious series is far from over. Action-packed and comedic with much entertainment value, The Fate of The Furious is simply a routine success of the series yet again.

Rating: 8/10
