The fate of the Furious (2017)

The Fate of the Furious: The Eight instalment of the franchise by director F. Gary Gary has enough adrenaline to bridge you to a part nine, but isn’t a patch on part seven, which made a whopping 1.5 billion dollars worldwide, and rightfully so.

Yes they think out of the box and have shots and sequences which make for great action and stunts, but the bar was set high with the last film and it’s antics. The conflict has an interesting resolution but somehow the complexity doesn’t match the treatment.

F8 is fun in parts but bogged down by unnecessary drama and a villain trying too hard.

2.5/5

Furious 7 (2015)

When horror director James Wan punches out such a high intensity billion dollar grossing action film, you can’t do anything but let adrenaline take over.

This time round the stunts are crazy, they are REAL ( yes even the air drop one) and there isn’t a lot of CGI used. Some witty and well timed one liners call for an applause, but the most commendable achievement was keeping true to its core theme: thrills galore!

While the villains are menacing, we have an indefatigable bunch of people who stick it out in seemingly impossible scenarios. Yes some of the stuff is unbelievable, but what else did you expect?

A fitting tribute to Paul Walker and guess what? Vin diesel does have a new facial expression 🙂

A thrilling ride that doesn’t stop even at part 7!
