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
Because cinematographer Stephen F. Windon was unavailable to finish shooting the film following the hiatus in production, his job was taken over by his longtime friend and collaborator Marc Spicer, who was originally on the film shooting visual effects plates for the Abu Dhabi scenes. The two share billing in the opening credits. See more »
A mini-gun cannot be fired without a power supply to run the motor that rotates the barrels, forget anything about a trigger and carrying handle. This is not actually a gun that is meant to be fired by a human being, and as a result needs to be modified specifically for that purpose. The power supply would also not be a battery because the gun motor would have been powered by the drone's power systems and a battery would be entirely useless as if the power was out, they wouldn't be able to fly the aircraft anyway, not to mention that a battery is just extra weight on the vehicle.

You drove a car through 2 buildings.
Actually, I think it was 3.
Oh, I'm sorry. 2 buildings, insult. 3 buildings, honor.

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.
The ending made me cry and it was a GREAT way to put Paul to rest.
Just got back.
Here is my short review:
If you've been following the series from the start, watched it grow, seen how the cast have become a family you will absolutely love it.
The tribute Paul at the end is poignant and very touching and will just cut you up.
As for the film as a film, they action is crazier than ever, there's some unnecessary camera moves and this one needs an even bigger suspension of disbelief, it barely pauses in between set pieces.
Statham is Statham – all that Transporter / War fight training is still present, Dwayne, missed you fella, always need more Rock.
Kurt was fabulous , see how his role expands for 8 New chick is okay, guess she'll be promoted to regular
But this film was all about Dom and his relationships with Letty and Brian.
The action, hey take it or leave it, call it stupid or enjoy it. The fights are absolutely amazing..But the character beats especially the last 10mins (Dom & Letty and the goodbye on the beach)..Tej as (Ludacris) and Roman as (Tyrese Gibson) were amazing and they had their moments..Everyone did a wonderful job! the stories in this series might be questionable but the character work and the relationships .. NOTHING comes close to matching The Fast and Furious Family
The ending had the entire theater crying.. RIP Paul
