The Fate Of The Furious Movie Review

Available on 4K, Blu-Ray™, DVD, and On Demand now

Jul 27, 2017

From a small cult movie in '01, to the number-one action film in the world, The Fast and the Furious franchise has no doubt come a long way. Depending on who you ask, the latest installment, Fate of the Furious, ranges from a great action flick with characters that are infectiously loveable, to a complete automotive culture disappointment. On top of that, director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) had to follow up after the intense ending of Furious 7, which many will argue was probably the ideal way to end the series.

This time around Vin Diesel's Dominic and his team are on the streets of Cuba, New York, and Russia. Fast and Furious fanatics will see something they never thought they'd see; Dominic going rogue and going against everything he's been preaching about family. Also for the first time in franchise history, we see a female antagonist by the name of Cipher played by Charlize Theron. Personally I would've liked to see a relative of Johnny Tran come back and get Dominic, but I digress. She's also the only person to have something on Dom so controversial it forces him to turn his back on his team.

While both the late Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner and his wife Mia (played previously by Jordana Brewster) are off the grid, his team is left to join forces with a previous enemy in Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw. Friends become enemies and enemies become friends — the story has more plot twists than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. The Fast and Furious franchise is fully aware of its cheesy additives and dives into it without hesitation with squadrons of self-driving cars, hi-jacking submarines, makeshift NOS systems, and cars with an alleged 5,000hp. The combined efforts of Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Statham, and Kurt Russel has gone perhaps a bro too far and is starting to feel like the abysmal Expendables movies. It's a good thing Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris are there for some comic relief.

At the end of the day we still want to watch these characters till the end game. If you're looking for some of the cinematic street racing like we keep hoping for, we suggest looking elsewhere — perhaps Option videos. And we still could use a little RJ Devera action in these movies as well.

The Fate Of The Furious is already available on digital and just went to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-RAY, DVD and On Demand on July 11, 2017, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. If you're a huge fan of the series, there are exclusive features on the Blu-ray for you to nerd out to. Now if we can only land a role in the next movie...
