Movie review : Fast and Furious 7

Headlines Movie review : Fast and Furious 7

fast-furious-7 (1)

After defeating international terrorist Owen Shaw, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and the rest of the crew have separated to return to more normal lives. However, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), Owen’s older brother, is thirsty for revenge. A slick government agent offers to help Dom and company take care of Shaw in exchange for their help in rescuing a kidnapped computer hacker .

PROS

  • Excellent well executed action sequences
  • Good send off for Paul walker , one of the main actors in the franchise , who tragically died in an automobile accident.

CONS

  • The movie takes a long time to really get started . The first 30 minutes is basically wasted in a poor attempt of character development .
  • Some of the dialogue is cringe worthy . Especially the banter between Ludacris (Tej)  and Tyrese’s(Roman) characters. .
  • The addition of random celebrities to play small roles added nothing to the plot of the movie and were more of distractions .

FAVOURITE QUOTES

Dominic Toretto: I don’t have friends, I’ve got a family.

Luke Hobbs: Daddy’s gotta go to work

Luke Hobbs: Woman, I am the cavalry!

CONCLUSION

If I had to summarise Fast and Furious 7 in one word , it would be disappointing . Don’t get me wrong,  this movie is jam packed with dazzling action sequences, impressive stunts , fast cars ,exotic locations , hot girls . What is missing is a cohesive story line . The plot is completely disjointed. In the previous instalments of the Fast and Furious franchise , the characters had a clearly defined mission . In this one the mission felt like an after thought after all the ridiculous and implausible, yet undeniably entertaining, action scenes .

RATING

stars-5-2

2 out of 5

  1. I didn’t like it. I however highly recommend ‘Run All Night’ starring Liam Neeson (Taken) and Ed Harris (The Rock). That is the best movie I have watched this year.

  2. the movie was ok but I agree it failed to live up to the hype..i loved fast 6, 7 felt a bit cringy they could have done more despite all those cwazy action scenes but its not a movie I would watch a couple of times like some of the fast and the furious movies………….
