Chris Andrew Ciulla,
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.
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.
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
The movie quite purposely contains a number of references to other movies, in addition to events within the F&F series itself dating back to Fast Five (2011). Deckard Shaw compared Hobbs to Hercules, which is particularly notable given the fact that Hobbs' role in Furious 7 (2015) was deliberately minimized because Dwayne Johnson was slated to film Hercules (2014) (as its titular character) during most of Furious 7 (2015)'s original filming schedule. After filming was postponed following Paul Walker's death, making Johnson available again, the producers retooled that film's ending to incorporate Hobbs as a major part of the action. Other references include a riff on "Miss Parker" (Ramsey) based on a line from Friday (1995), also directed by F. Gary Gray, and "Jaws," when Hobbs comments - while on the run from the submarine under Cipher's control - that "we're gonna need a bigger truck." Deckard woken up by his mother in the ambulance also references the Crank (2006) movies in which Jason Statham starred. See more »
The tracking device in Dom's cross has a red blinking light. If the aim is to provide tracking without being detected, a red blinking light is the last thing you'd want. This is a common error in movies with trackers placed on cars and such. It shows the audience the device is active, but it makes no sense whatsoever. 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.

Look at this. This is an engine from a boat.

This was painful. Action? Yes, but we're talking Physics that Sharknado would be ashamed of. Failure to understand or accept how reality works, even at a basic level. If you know the basics of cars, computers or physics, this will inflict pain to your brain.
No part of this movie made sense, it makes all 7 prequels seem like a real life documentary about cars. By far - Worst of the series. By going so far off the deep end, it made it too improbable for me to enjoy.
