Before you read this review, you should know there are currently 2 more Fast&Furious movies slated since I personally think it should have ended at the previous F&F 7 but yeah here, I am reviewing the next instalment of the Fast & Furious. I will rate this movie a 3 out of 5 mainly because it has lost the core of what an F&F movie should have been. I would not spend much time reviewing this since this franchise is much more of a fanboy franchise since  F&F Tokyo Drift.


This time they have decided to not only involve car racing but also lots of fist fight. If you are always a fan of Jason Statham fist fight, you are in for a treat. A Certain part of the movie felt like Transporter and also then there are some directly taken out from Death Race. Dwayne Johnson had his fair share of fist fight busting out of the jail like you seen in the trailer and it is really really good. The range of car now has gone up to be more lavish and we are now exposed to more car branding mainly Mercedes, Mustang and many other. Surprisingly, there was a Subaru and Toyota featured. 


Trying to fit so many action scene in the movie feels so cluttered and cramped. Every single action scene was over the top. One point, it felts like Micheal Bay decided to shoot Transformer in Fast&Furious. I love it if they brought back something basic like Tokyo Drift, good racing and a good storyline with at least some meaningful dialogue. The current La Familia motto seems like overly forced into this movie where the only part of the family you felt was throughout the end of the movie. 


Fast&Furious seems to be much of a fanboy franchise currently. The only reason that you watched it is because you were still holding on to the memories of their glory days which in my case, that happen. I kept lying to myself that the movie would not suck but at the end only to be disappointed. Also, there are no Nissan cars anymore. RIP GTR.
