Movie Review: The Fate of the Furious

AMC Storyline: Now that Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game and the rest of the crew has been exonerated; the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. Then a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and finds himself betraying those closest to him. Our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

Fangirl Thoughts: This movie is everything you would expect it to be. Hot guys, chicks, and cars and the outright disregard for physics is what the series is about and this latest installment keeps that going. I enjoyed the over the top testosterone of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Stathum. I enjoyed watching the team bumble along while going up against Dom. Overall it’s a solid movie.

Gripes (Spoiler filled) Sometimes the movie ignores logic and physics too much. Five cars take on one car and that one car is able to flip the 5 other cars. I do not care how Dom modded that car, he cannot win like that I am sorry. Also Dom’s baby out of nowhere….no! I am trying to think back to the previous movies and I am sorry but Dom was with Elena in Fast 5 and we see her in 6 and 7 so someone please break down the timeline that she was pregnant and not showing. Also the sports cars driving on ice and not spinning out like we all know they should have. I only saw the enemies’ tires with chains on them. Anyone who drives on ice and snow know that you have to drive with sense and you will not be able to stop on a dime. And a few cars cannot stop a wall of fire and that’s all I am going to say about that.

What did you think of the movie? I gave it a solid 7.5 out of 10.
