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.Written by
An EMP would damage the electronics in Dom's car, rendering it inoperable after the first usage. See more »
We swap in parts from Fords... Plymouths and Cadillacs. My grandfather bought it in 1957. When he died, it passed to my father. Then my brother, and now me.
[in Spanish, to Letty]
Look at this. This is an engine from a boat.

The 148-minute Director's Cut has the following additions:
In Cuba, there are extra lines by Raldo, especially when he tells that the car that is Dom's cousin is no longer his and reprimands Letty for interjecting. During Dom's race with Raldo, there's extra shots of Letty and Dom's cousin to emphasize they are keeping an eye on the race as well as Dom at the burning cockpit. One of Raldo's men takes a phone call.
At the bed, Letty asks Dom whether he has enough faith and would he ride for the world.
Roman calms Letty after she confronts Ramsey.
Dom finds it amusing for Cipher to watch everything from 30,000 feet. There's also an extra line by her describing him: "That engine. That open road. Being free."
In the prison block, Hobbs' sexual-reference line "So why don't you get your candy-ass back out there and toss some more salad, boy?" has been restored. When he and Deckard fight their way out, he stabs and inmate, throwing him over the railing before beating more of them.
The debriefing on Cipher and Dom is longer: Hobbs tells Tej that Nobody and Little Nobody are like a maze; Little Nobody says no one knows of Cipher except for one photo; Letty doesn't understand why Dom and Cipher work together; Roman brags his awesomeness for having Ramsey's program to track Cipher, he also backs down after Little Nobody is annoyed at him. Just before Dom and Cipher attack the base, Tej pulls out the live surveillance footage - Cipher snarky remark, "Surprise!"
Ramsey thanks Deckard for saving her. It makes Roman nervous that he called Tej over to talk about both of them.
Cipher tells Dom of another possible outcome from an attempted escape by him.
At the car warehouse, Hobbs is irritated by Deckard's jeep being British that he smashes a side mirror. Roman makes imaginary fly talk to deliberately mess Little Nobody.
Dom tells Magdalene that he can see in his little boy's eyes.
There's more lingering shots on Dom and Cipher when Rhodes executes Elena.
Extra line by Letty about Rhodes: "He must have been working with that bitch the whole time."
When Dom and Cipher talk about the submarine hijack plan, she summarizes Dom's urge for revenge. He then psychoanalyzes her.
Roman calls Tej a fake Barry White.
During the soccer match, Hobbs yells something explicit to the men who wanted him for the Berlin assignment. This pays off here when after he shouts again, his attackers were irritated. Tej fights a Russian.
As Roman is pursued by enemy jeeps he keeps swearing but warns his team about the jeeps.
Deckard kills a few more of Cipher's goons at the plane.
Extra line by Roman: "I'm not going back to the water!"
Dom humorously complains to Deckard of the baby glove that is British.
Well, as usual after watching a Fast and Furious movie, I was always amazed by how crazy the action stunts in every installment. It was like they tried to make it bigger, better and crazier in each movie. This one is no exception. The action sequences were all there, from the street car racing (which is the movie's unique specialty), the fighting scenes (made even more special with the addition of Jason Statham), and of course the car chase involving sooo many vehicles.
In term of story, I think the writers were quite smart to make the story intriguing with the betrayal of Dom to his family. They even made some surprising twists (though they were quite easily guessed by us audiences), nevertheless, kudos for their effort. The most surprising thing about the movie was the amount of funny scenes which I think were quite significant. The moments involving Tyrese Gibson were hilarious and even Jason Statham also had some moments as well.
The movie also had some brief appearances and cameos by few characters from previous movies and a new interesting character played by Helen Mirren. I think she would appear in the future installments as well. One thing that I am quite amazed was how smart the people behind the franchise were. They have made the movie evolved again from originally a street car movies, to heist and now more like spy thing. But of course all the ingredients of Fast and Furious were still kept in tact. The special effects of the movie were good, the sound effects should be good (though I did not experience it as I watched it in the studio with normal sound system). I am seriously tempted to watch it again in a cinema with the cool sound system just to re-live the scenes with better sound.
My wife and I certainly were entertained by this movie. We had tons of enjoyment from the cool action sequence, the amount of funny moments, and even few of dramatic moments. So if you are looking for another outstanding action movie with all those qualities in this kind of movie, then this one certainly would not disappoint you. But if you are looking for deep conversation type of movie with heavy story line for an action movie with logic, then it may not suit you. Just a reminder that this is a pop corn action movie suitable for thrill action movie seekers like most of us.
