Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
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

A submarine's propeller is made for propelling it through water, not air. Activating the engine while the submarine is propped up on land will not cause it to move. 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.
Whatever it takes to keep it running

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.

Manages to remain a strong franchise, despite the absence of Paul Walker's character.
The Fate of the Furious continues with the story of Dom(Vin Diesel) & his crew including Hobbs(Dwayne Johnson), his wife Letty(Michelle Rodriguez), Roman(Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker(Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges) & Ramsey(Nathalie Emmanuel). Dom is coerced to work with Cipher(Charlize Theron), who brings him into the world of global terrorism. Now, it is up to the rest of Dom's crew, to stop Cipher & Dom, before it's too late.
The Fate of the Furious is a highly entertaining movie. All the action set pieces in the film are mind blowing, especially the New York set piece & the climactic set piece. The 3D definitely enhances the action on screen. Director F. Gary Gray has successfully taken the reins from Furious 7(2015) director, James Wan. However, I liked Furious 7(2015) better, because it had more of an emotional impact, due to that fantastic tribute to Paul Walker at the end of the movie. The plot of the film is obviously nothing to write home about but, that is what is expected from the Fast & Furious franchise which is known for its insanely ridiculous yet epic, action set pieces. A note on the performances. Vin Diesel is effective as Dom. Jason Statham is awesome as Deckard. Dwayne Johnson is superb as Hobbs. Michelle Rodriguez is amazing as Letty. Tyrese Gibson is hilarious as Roman. Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges is impressive as Tej Parker. Charlize Theron is spectacular as Cipher. Theron steals the show in every scene she's in & is the best villain so far, in the Fast & Furious series. Kurt Russell is good as Mr. Nobody. Nathalie Emmanuel is great as Ramsey. Luke Evans & Elsa Pataky are outstanding as Owen & Elena, respectively. Kristofer Hivju is perfect as Rhodes. Scott Eastwood is brilliant as Little Nobody. Look out for a memorable cameo from an established thespian. The Fate of the Furious is a must watch for all the die-hard fans of this never ending franchise.
