Fast and Furious drives back onto our screens for its eighth instalment, with the all star cast returning for more fast cars and mayhem!
Prepare for “The Fate of the Furious.”
Directed by F. Gary Gray, the new instalment finds Dom and the crew settling down into their lives. Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) have returned from their honeymoon and appear to be enjoying life as newlyweds until a strange woman arrives on the scene. She leads Dom to a life of crime and deceit tearing him apart from those closest to him.
The movie has been awarded 75% from Rotten Tomatoes, with critics supporting the nostalgic elements of the plot. The Playlist says “it is impossible not to like”. Entertainment Weekly also supported the movie saying it was “much funnier and lighter on its feet than previous outings, and a lot of that credit goes to Statham and Johnson, whose love-hate bromance feels like the real core of the movie”. The initial reaction to the film is overly positive, however The Hollywood Reporter said “Fate delivers exactly what fans have come to expect, for better and for worse” in one of the more negative reviews of the film.
The film is setting up to be very popular and if you’re a fan of the franchise this is a must, if you just like the idea of watching a big Hollywood budget drive cars into things, don’t let anything stop you!
