Dominic Torretto and his crew thought they left the criminal mercenary life behind. They defeated an international furious-7terrorist named Owen Shaw and went their seperate ways. But now, Shaw’s brother, Deckard Shaw is out killing the crew one by one for revenge. Worse, a Somalian terrorist called Jakarde, and a shady government official called “Mr. Nobody” are both competing to steal a computer terrorism program called God’s Eye, that can turn any technological device into a weapon. Torretto must reconvene with his team to stop Shaw and retrieve the God’s Eye program while caught in a power struggle between terrorist and the United States government.

Alright everyone, the apocalypse has happened. I actually enjoyed watching a Fast and Furious movie. I know I know, I should have known better. Anyway Furious 7, which I wish I could say is the last Fast and Furious film, was actually incredibly entertaining. The stunts were even more ridiculous this time around, most notably during a major Furious-7-Dwayne-Johnsonrescue scene (no spoilers though). The soundtrack again was also top notch, with a blend of electronic, Latin, and hip hop.

Now to my favorite part, lets tear Furious 7 apart. The acting, just like the rest of the series, was quite sub par. I do want to call out to Vin Diesel and give him props. Who stood from the convoluted crowd as I genuinely felt the pain that he suffered after Paul Walker’s demise. While retiring his character was the right thing to do, I felt they could have done it differently. Amazing tribute to the standout actor of the series.

PROS:

  • Vin Diesel Performance.
  • Paul Walker Tribute.
  • Stunts.
  • Soundtrack.

CONS:

  • Remaining cast performances.
  • Lack of street racing,
  • Ridiculous plot.

SCORE: 6.5/10
