Cars and acting styles collide in 'Fate of the Furious'

Charmed by the city's vehicle culture, they're soon in a street race - a thrilling sequence with motorcycles swooping in to stop traffic as the drivers speed by. Would the cars actually be able to drive as well as they do in the movie? Fast and Furious 8 aka The Fate of the Furious is not good as the previous parts of the series. Well, it's something that will have major ramifications for the franchise, going forward. After a auto race between Dom and Cuban tough guy Raldo (an appealing Celestino Cornielle) ends with Dom crossing the finish line in reverse in a vehicle that is on fire, DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), whose wardrobe is entirely sleeveless, takes a break from coaching his young daughter's soccer team.

The botched Berlin mission lands Hobbs in a super-max prison, where he faces off with none other than Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), the tough-as-nails villain from the last movie. Nobody (Kurt Russell) and his comically unseasoned sidekick, Eric Reisner (Scott Eastwood). Mr.

While Vin Diesel has starred in the franchise for more than 15 years, he wasn't the first choice to play Dom Toretto. The film will be released in 3D, IMAX 3D and 4DX internationally. But for anyone who wants more than just vehicle crashes, deaths, and one-liners, The Fate of the Furious is a non-starter.

Many Hollywood franchises have clicked with the audiences and are eagerly awaited by the fans in India. No longer would Brian O'Connor risk his life chasing the rush of speed, bullets, and defending his makeshift, motorhead family. Nobody is back, but we'll get to him in a moment.

The cast and the cars are what carry this franchise. For a series that has made much of its characters being a family, there's very little that feels honest in this film.

So what do I think all this means?

The Fast and The Furious movies are always about the cars but in The Fate of the Furious, it's REALLY all about the cars, especially with a literal tidal wave of vehicles engulfing the Russian Ambassador's limousine in the middle of Manhattan.

I am always in awe of the amount of work that must go into shooting these auto chase scenes. Named The Fate of the Furious, the action movie is directed by Felix Gary Gray who's also known for directing "The Italian Job". And it definitely has fewer slow-motion close ups of butts. With Hobbs and Dom separated for most of the movie, they don't get to butt Alpha Male heads. Marvel's franchises - like Iron Man, Captain America, and the Avengers - have done the same as their heroes grapple with the realities of civilian casualties, PTSD, world-ending threats, the military-industrial complex, and politicians and a public demanding accountability.

Grand scale is an understatement in this one (as with most Fast And Furious flicks), so put your brain on hold and enjoy the ride of rides.
