My rating: 8/10
This movie has more ups than downs. The scenes are amazing and I have a feeling that small screen will not do them justice. If 10$ is too steep for you, wait for a Saturday morning show at a local AMC or use the free movie ticket options that mobile carriers hand out on Tuesdays. Do what you have to do, go check this one out at a theater.
- The sequence the movie begins with is quite cool where Dom is challenged to race with a pitiful excuse of a car.
- Rock and Jason Statham. The chemistry they have is amazing. Their witty interaction makes you smile every single time.
- I loved the Car\Van\Jeep\Tank\Submarine Chase on the snow. It was something new that I had not seen before and this sequence alone is worth watching the movie for.
- It is the right dose of comedy and action and it does have its thrills.
- Scott Eastwood is a fresh face and looks like he will be here to stay. (I Cannot help it, I am a sucka for a pretty face).
- The individual stunt scenes are as amazing as the ones with the cars. Jason Statham wins the day.
- I know the movie is about Fast cars and its share of car crashes. But sometimes, there is a limit on the number of cars that you can watch getting crashed.
- Cheesy Dialogues. Let us be thankful that there are very few non-comic scenes where people are talking. And most of it is very cheesy. I personally love cheesy but I can picture a few folks twitch every time Vin Diesel said ‘Family’.
- I am a huge fan of Charlize Theron. I believe they could have made her look more glamorous. I personally did not dig her look in the movie.
- Didn’t Statham kill one of their own? wonder what happened to put them all on the same side. So much for Familia.
- Scott Eastwood character flip. He started out goofy and towards the end, he was one of them? Transition was too quick to be true.
- I love Michelle Rodriguez. They could have done so much more with her character.
- It would be interesting to see what they have in store for Luke Evans. (Owen Shaw)
- It would interesting to see if Charlize Theron makes a come back in the next movie(s).
- It would be interesting to see if we get #JusticeforHan.
