Storyline

Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey... before someone else runs them down first.

Alternate Versions

The extended cut is a minute longer with slight more graphic violence with the following additions:
  • After Hobbs' team shootout with Zizi's gang, he asks whether all is clear while they are aiming guns at Neves.
  • Tej admits that the safe they're going after is the hardest to crack and they need another duplicate safe to practice.
  • The crew talks about breaking into the safe and how to transport the money. Brian founds out that there's an adjoining wall to the toilet room. Roman and Han, tasked to transport the money says of a possible solution : a ventilation shaft that leads straight into the garage so they can transport the money from the shaft into the transport cars.
  • Hobbs' and Dominic's brawl is slightly longer: Hobbs lands a cracking elbow check on Dom's back and Dom punches Hobbs in the ribs. Then another hard headbutt and a punch at Hobbs' face. When Hobbs hit back, there's another punch at Dom before Hobbs spins around for another lunge. Finally, when Hobbs is down on the floor, there's another punch from Dom.
  • When rescuing Hobbs' team who are being ambushed by Reyes's men, Dominic fires two more shots at Reyes's men while Hobb's is still lying on the ground
  • Instead of a black screen, the start of the end credits has a warning on stunts shouldn't be imitated at home.

Definitely one of the best ones!
26 January 2020 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

Amazing action, cars, solid story, comedic, and very entertaining! What more could you ask for except for epicness! I love all the badness in it and Tyrees Gibson is always a delight so is everyone else. Great Fast and furious for any fan of the series or not. Exhilarating as well too!
