Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the rest of the crew has been exonerated-the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage... and to bring home the man who made them a family.

Family No More
14 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Fate of the Furious is the start of a new trilogy, according to Vin Diesel. A trilogy that continues the ridiculous path taken by Fast 5, 6, and 7, but bringing in more spy elements and pushing aside the heist part of the series.

Much like Furious 7, this film finds the team of Dom, Letty, Hobbs, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey once again being targeted by someone. Last time, the team managed to take down Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham, who was out for revenge. Now, a tech-hacker-terrorist played by Charlize Theron forces Dom to turn his back on family and help her steal nuclear codes. Let me say this upfront, most of this movie doesn't make any logical sense. In fact, this movie probably makes less sense than all of the other previous films combined. But did that impact my viewing experience in the slightest? Not one bit.

So even though this film can be perceived as the dumbest of the bunch, there's no denying just how fun it is. Embracing the silliness is an understatement. Dodging a submarine, redirecting a torpedo with your hand, arm curling a steel bench, and pretty much stopping World War 3 are only a few of the things the team have to do. However, there's a clear difference with this franchise than most. The F&F series has made it clear from the get-go that these stories always come down to family. So it may not seem like there are any consequences when they come out of fights without a single scratch, but if you buy into them as a family than it doesn't really matter how unrealistic the film can get.

With the passing of Paul Walker, there's a bit of a gap that may never truly be filled again without Brian O'Conner, but they did the best they could in spreading out what would have been O'Conner's screen time. The Rock certainly gets a boost to second billed, after his limited presence in Furious 7. Between him, Diesel, Statham, Gibson, and Ludicrous, there's probably close to 200 one- liners. And unlike with Triple X early this year, this Vin Diesel film actually made me laugh. They do a great job at giving each cast member their moment to shine. Particularly, the chemistry between Statham and The Rock really pops. If there's a world where Vin Diesel would let them have a spin-off film together, I'd be the first in line.

Theron is very good as Cipher, though I'm not sure how much I like the hacking/terrorist side of the villain. The "God's Eye" was the least interesting part of the last movie and that's easily the case with Cipher. I'll buy into Dom's crew taking down anybody with the rules (or lack thereof) that the franchise has set, but I'm just not all that invested in street racers taking on techies. I'd rather have a villain that our heroes can punch, which is why the last few films have been so fun. Which makes it even weirder that they didn't decide to make Cipher physically capable, considering how good Theron was in Mad Max and how good she looks to be in the upcoming Atomic Blonde. Perhaps that was a missed opportunity.

Overall, The Fate of the Furious once again ups the series in terms of ridiculousness and stupidity, which is exactly what I hoped for. It's not as touching as Furious 7 nor as fun as Fast 5, but it's no doubt a time worthwhile at the theaters.

+Upping their game once again

+Statham & The Rock

+Family, family, family

+Reinvents itself

-Theron was good, but I don't care for that type of villain
