Movie review : Fast and Furious 8

Headlines Movie review : Fast and Furious 8

With Dom and Letty married, Brian and Mia retired and the rest of the crew exonerated, the globe-trotting team has found some semblance of a normal life. They soon face an unexpected challenge when a mysterious woman named Cipher forces Dom to betray them all. Now, they must unite to bring home the man who made them a family and stop Cipher from unleashing chaos


  • Excellent performance by the entire ensemble cast. Every character was utilised effectively. I especially enjoyed the performances of Charlize Theron(Cipher) and Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs).
  • The movie was littered with breathtaking stunts, car chases and action sequences , but still managed to have a strong, believable storyline.


  • Time was not taken to introduce the numerous characters to audience members not familiar with the Fast and Furious franchise.


Dom Toretto :“it’s not what’s under the hood that matters, it’s who’s behind the wheel”

Hobbs: “What’s it gonna be? You’re gonna close your eyes on world war 3 or you’re gonna saddle up and save the entire damn world.”

Cipher: “One thing I can guarantee… no one’s ready for this.”


I was not a fan of Fast and furious 7 , so i went into this one with very low expectations. The hype around Fast 8 was huge as is to be expected from this popular franchise. I happy to say that Fast and furious 8 (The Fate of the furious) was head and shoulders above it predecessor. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It had a nice blend of the adrenaline-spiking action scenes  ,stunts, and fast car, that you expect from a Fast and Furious movie, coupled with a splendid storyline. The standout performance came from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (Hobbs). His character could easily be the lead if Vin Diesel were to step down. That being said Diesel ( Dominic Toretto) delivers his most dramatic and emotionally-rich performance in a Fast & Furious movie to date. Tyrese (Roman Pearce) was simply hilarious. Charlize Theron brings an air of malice and ice cold villainy to her character, Cipher.

This is a must watch for fans of the Fast and Furious saga. Indubitably this is not the last instalment in the franchise. I am exited to see what they will come up with next .
