Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Dominic and his crew thought they'd left the criminal mercenary life behind. They'd defeated international terrorist Owen Shaw and went their separate 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 the terrorist and the United States government.
The scene where the bus is hanging over the cliff, and Brian (Paul Walker) hangs out of it, and climbs on the bus while running, before the bus falls over, is reminiscent of the game Uncharted 2's opening sequence, where Nathan Drake, the main character finds himself in the same situation (although in Uncharted 2, it's a train car).

During the opening scene, as Shaw leaves the hospital and gets into his car, the registration plate is missing from the front of the car making it illegal to driven in the UK. See more »
How 'bout you tell us where that device is?
I mailed it to a friend. In Abu Dhabi.
That was pretty easy. That other team wanted to torture you for that information.
I didn't trust them. I trust you.
Now why would you trust us? You barely know us.
I know enough.

Ex-cop. Military, something like that. The way you took out those guys shows training.

Tech guy, offended by the hacker remark, naturally.

Before the credits, there is a title card that reads, "For Paul", dedicating the film to deceased star Paul Walker. See more »
This film tells the story of a team of daredevil drivers who ate recruited by the secret service to rescue a kidnapped hacker who has invented a powerful surveillance software.
With the series being the who's who of conventional action superstars, "Fast And Furious 7" finally corrected the conspicuous absence of Jason Statham. He certainly doesn't disappoint, as every star deliver awesome action scenes. This film is different from the others because it's really good. It's not ridiculous and brainless like "The Expendables" series; and it's not attention deficit like the Bourne series. This combines action, brains and emotions, which is a perfect blend for blockbuster success.
The action scenes are simply awesome. The scene of a car flying between buildings is superb, but by no means the best. There are so many other astounding scenes that got me holding my breath, literally. For example, Paul Walker trying to escape from a bus is a scene that made me stop breathing because it's so intense. The film is so packed with action, but it doesn't feel fragmented or attention deficit. That is what makes it stand above other action films.
"Fast And Furious 7" constantly surprises me with jaw dropping action. Just when I thought I have seen everything, and nothing can surprise me anymore, the surprises keep on coming. I'm truly amazed by the film. I guess no one thought James Wan could make such an awe inspiring film, after establishing himself as a great horror director.
