- 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.
- 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 .
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!
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 .
