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 »

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.

I liked the previous movies of the franchise. They were decent action flicks, exactly something you go to watch in a cinema with friends. But this? This is beyond awful, it's worse than a parody. Every line is a cliché, the acting is not even mediocre, the plot line is exactly like something a 12 year old boy has come up with.
There's no way the 10 star reviews are NOT paid. This movie is an insult to anyone who pays to see it.
