It was probably another Point Break version, with cars that the
Fast and Furious started their journey back in 2001. Since then the
franchise has come a long way with releasing their latest 8th
instalment of the series.
Unlike other franchises, the Fast and Furious team has always
tried developing its bloodline on the basis of outrageous stunts
and insane actions more than its storyline. And that insanity of
stunts grew further with each and every release.
The Fate of the Furious a.k.a Fast 8 settles into this scheme
effortlessly, escalated only by high-octane escapism and
extravagant stunt sequences which will take the audiences into a
new height of realisation and excitement.
The Italian Job, Friday, Straight Outta Compton fame director F.
Gary Gray takes the direction wheel on his hands for Fast 8, though
he doesn't go out of the box for this film, he ensured that there
remains enough juice for insane action lovers.
People often talk about the robust storyline to analyse a film's
credibility, but then if you can buy comic-book superhero films
which is generally built on the aspect of over-exaggeration of
human ability and term them as the superpower, then you should not
be whining about this film.
Fast 8 provides a great hook with Dom betraying his family for
mysterious reasons and joins the malefactor Cipher played by
Charlize Theron in her iniquitous agenda. This manifested betrayal
develops all the required tension and conflict in the movie.
The superficial hunt for Dom brings in Ian Shaw (Jason Statham)
to the team dissolving all enmity and then they venture out to New
York City and Russia in style, accompanied with over-the-top action
and outrageous stunts.
Out of all the insane stunts, 'Manhattan sequence' is sure to
leave you breathless and then the Die Another Day type climax is
absolutely intense and engaging.
Overall, The Fate of the Furious is a great movie to watch this
weekend, adrenaline gushing vehicular mayhem and high-octane
escapism will surely add up to your excitement along with its
open-ended curtain drop that will only build up your anticipation
for its next part.
