Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.
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.Written by
The Fast and Furious franchise has followed a non-linear path, in terms of timelines, but Furious 7 (2015) finally provided some clarity as to when most of the films take place. Letty's tombstone, seen early in the film, shows the year of her supposed "death" as 2009, the year Fast & Furious (2009) was released in real life. Furthermore, after Letty's funeral in Fast & Furious (2009), Mia states to Brian that it had been five years since Brian first met her, Dom, and Letty, which sets the events in the first film in 2004. Mia discovers she is pregnant early on in Fast Five (2011), the lone film in the franchise to start off at the exact point where the previous film ended (with Brian and Mia breaking Dom out of a prison bus), so its events most likely took place circa 2010. Mia gives birth in the opening sequence of Fast & Furious 6 (2013), but the remainder of the film takes place afterwards when Brian and Mia's son, Jack, is roughly a year old. Consequently, it appears to be set around eighteen months later, likely in 2012. Jack has reached preschool age at the beginning of Furious 7 (2015), or roughly three years old, which places it circa 2014 (the film's original year of release, later changed after Paul Walker's death). This also means that The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) is set circa 2013-2014, since Han's (retconned) death in the film takes place immediately before Deckard Shaw calls Dom and blows up the Toretto house. Finally, an early scene references Dom's arrival in Tokyo at the end of "Tokyo Drift," which was for the purpose of bring home Han's casket, following his murder by Shaw. See more »
Although the drone was crushed by an ambulance vehicle, its machine gun and the bullet clip were still intact and functioned normally. Additionally, as this was a machine gun attached to the drone, there should be nothing like a clear press-and-release trigger for Hobbs to use. See more »
[Hobbs walks toward his office when he notices Shaw accessing his computer. He clears his throat to get Shaw's attention]
You sure as hell ain't the I.T. guy.
You just earned yourself a dance with the devil, boy. You're under arrest.
Like I said: I'm here for the team that crippled my brother.
There was no damn team. It was just one man... and he's standing right in front of you.
[Shaw removes his USB flash drive]
The lady was right. You're a terrible liar.

The IMAX intro for the film features the statement "Can't Outrun the Truth", a spinning tire wheel, and the sound of racing cars and police sirens. See more »
The 140-minute extended version of the film has the following additions:
No doubt the biggest addition is the longer opening sequence where Deckard narrates their shared past as children including him punished by their father for what Owen would steal. He also knew that Owen would end up in the current predicament despite being a gangster, smarter, better and being trained by him. It then continues to the theatrical-version's opening of laying the machine gun on Owen's chest before he leaves the hospital.
A different line when Deckard responds to Hobbs why he's in his office: "I don't care for your computer. I'm here for the team that crippled my brother."
The graveyard chase is slightly longer.
The number of punches, kicks and head butts between Letty and Kara is almost doubled.
The shootout at the warehouse is longer, especially it has Mr. Nobody killing a three more of Jakande's mercenaries.

Furious 7 is a great addition to the Fast and the Furious series! It has all the great action and humor from the previous movies, but also has more character development and heart. The movie of course has its over the top scenes and cheesy dialog, but that is easily forgotten with the amount of fun you have with this movie. The cinematography is also much better in this movie, thanks to the new director James Wan. James wan gives you all the great moments from the last movies, but steps it up. The movie also handles Paul Walkers death in great way. He also has a tribute at the end of the movie. Furious 7 is an amazing time at the cinemas!
