Fast And Furious 8 Film Review (Spoilers Alert)


fast and furious 8

There have been many iconic petrolhead films over the years, which proved to many global audiences that the idea of cars and driving can be SO much more than trundling down the A3 in a dimwitted and boring Vauxhall Astra diesel.

They make us dream, they make us wonder; “What if I had a car like that? When will I ever be like Steve McQueen?”

And as far as everyone’s concerned, it was Justin Lin and a bunch of kitted out Japanese cars that really caught the imagination of those millions of converted car fans.  The fast and furious series over the past 15 years is amongst one of the most popular movie franchise, EVER!

Overtime though, the fast and furious films have changed…. a lot!  And last night, I met up with my friends to watch the latest version: Fast and Furious 8!  (Or Fate of the Furious….whatever it is…)   Anyway, lets get on with the review.

 

The Story/Plot

This was perhaps Vin Diesel’s finest hour of acting throughout the entire series!

The plot of Fast and Furious 8 was definitely much more emotional and personal than the previous instalments.

So basically, Dom (Vin Diesel) was very explicitly persuaded by the main villain: Cipher (Charlize Theron) to work for her in order to save his son, in which he had with Elena (Elsa Pataky).

Many teenage girls will now be getting dread-locks…

It’s effectively a mentally furious Dom being blackmailed by Cipher, and working with that dread-locked witch meant that he had to turn his back on his crew!  (Which explains why the Fast and Furious icon went rouge!)

It’s important to know that Dom never wanted to rebel against ‘family’, he pretty much had no choice until he could think of a way out.

Overall, it’s such a tense story.  I imagine everyone in the cinema was sat still, waiting as to what was going to happen.  For once, everyone had to think fast, and furiously!  Great story.
