“Furious 7 had one the best conclusions for a film series ever. I and was perfectly happy if the series ended there and continued with spin-offs or hell even a Netflix TV show. But the almighty dollar wants these films to continue. I really had my doubts going into this film. I didnu0026#39;t think the series had any fuel left. The story arch in the last 3 films was complete. What else can we tell now that the main antagonist was no longer in the series? Well, I was wrong, really wrong, I was very surprised by this movie, surprised to the fact that I was very entertained and had as much fun as I had with this series since Tokyo Drift (yes I liked Tokyo Drift). The main driving point of the story (which the trailers express) of Dom going rouge was a valid plot point and with a twist to the series that worked. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat I liked about the film was the main plot device and of course the action. All the action scenes were all fun to watch (personally, I like the opening sequence best) But this movie delivered on what it promises and thatu0026#39;s over the top action. At one point our anti- heroes seemed like superheroes who drive in their own u0026quot;Batmobilesu0026quot; and ride to the rescue.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat I didnu0026#39;t like was fact that a couple of action scenes were fun but very ridiculous and somewhat didnu0026#39;t work for me. And one of the characters in the film has an arch that just betrays the last two films and makes you question the motive of others. But on the downside, the franchise will run out of fuel soon and start to get that u0026quot;been there, done thatu0026quot; feel to it that will make the next films seem boring. You somewhat feel that in the climax of this film but itu0026#39;s the main plot point that keeps the action scene lifted because you know itu0026#39;s coming just when and how keeps you invested.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all the movie was really good and you will be entertained and I would rank it as well as parts 5, 6 and 7 but the finish line is near and I feel the next films (I read 2 more are coming) will not have enough fuel to make to the finish line. Will the next films kick in the NOS and project us to the finish line…I really do hope so.”
