Storyline

Now that Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and Brian (Paul Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) 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.

Goofs

Most of the streets seen in parts set in Manhattan are bidirectional, based on the road markings visible throughout. Nearly every major thoroughfare in Manhattan runs in one direction, however, making it obvious that the scenes were not filmed on location. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Plymouth Owner: [in Spanish] 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.
Dominic Toretto: [in Spanish, to Letty] Look at this. This is an engine from a boat.
Letty: No way.
Plymouth Owner: [in Spanish] Whatever it takes to keep it running

Alternate Versions

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.

The movie did its job
16 April 2017 | by alissarios-100See all my reviews

Fate of the Furious, or Fast 8, was exactly what you wanted it to be and more. The storyline wasn't as interesting as Fast 6 or 7, but still made for a good plot. The pacing was a bit weird, and I felt like some characters were kind of left out of the storyline (Letty and Tej), but overall it was a great time. Hot girls, beautiful and fast cars, AMAZING action sequences, and just enough emotion and drama to remind us what really matters: family. Definitely recommend if you liked the other movies, or you're just looking for a fun, entertaining, and visually stunning action movie.
