Fast and Furious 8 Review

Rating: 5.00/5 (1 Vote)

“Dom Toretto just went rogue”

Ah, Fast and Furious. The franchise that first launched back in 2001 with its first film, The Fast and the Furious, and is now on its 8th film and still going incredibly strong. I`m always wary when it comes to film franchises and the number of films that they go on for, as some franchises can have the tendency to drag them out. Fast and Furious 8 (or Fate of the Furious in the US) was released last week, and as the title suggests, is the 8th instalment of the franchise, the franchise that has no signs of stopping down, with a 9th and 10th film already in the works. Having broken records at the US box office, is it a good instalment to the franchise?

 

Fast and Furious 8 tells the story of the gang who are driven back together after veteran street racer Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), who has settled down with his wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) has his head turned and recruited to work for cyber-terrorist Cypher (Charlize Theron). Set out to stop Cyper and most importantly, gain back the family and bringing Dom to realise where he truly belongs, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Letty, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris) and Ramsey (Nathalie Emanuel) set out to cross from New York to Russia to stop Cyper.

I`ve been very lucky to see two screenings of this, once in 2D and the other in 4DX (which is ridiculous how good it is, but that`s for another story) and after seeing it twice it has made me understand the story more and actually realised what a good film it is. From the beginning scene where we`re taken to Cuba, the moment of shots of cars (the highlight of the franchise) and of course fast-paced car racing through the streets of Cuba, it`s a film that`s going to offer lots of action from the off throughout the film. Perhaps not the most actionic in the franchise, but certainly the most cars and I`d be pretty intrigued to see and hear how much car damage they did throughout the film, especially for those who have seen the film already, the scene in New York, because that was quite something.

Of course, alongside a story, You need the characters to be portrayed well and have a personality to each of them, and once again, the main cast do it incredibly well. There is a real spotlight on Vin Diesel`s character throughout the film as the story is based around his decisions to work alongside Cypher, but there`s more to it than just Diesel`s character. Each character in the gang has their own personality that one would probably be able to relate to in some shape of form, and each play their parts incredibly well. Dwayne Johnson`s character in Luke Hobbs seen as the more tougher guy that we`re known for Johnson, or The Rock known for playing in real life, and even the character of Deckard Shaw (For example in the final scene on the plane where he is shooting his way to confront Cypher) played by Jason Statham, is quite interesting, because you could compare him to some of the previous characters he`s played in other films.

Throughout Fast and Furious 8, there are several references too previous characters, most notably Brian O Connor, who was played by Paul Walker in the previous films before his death whilst filming Furious 7. The ending aswell also could be seen as a homage to Walker and his character which is quite nice to see one of the most iconic characters of the Fast and Furious franchise recognised.

Fast and Furious 8 is a good addition to the Fast franchise. Is it the best? I`d say not, but it certainly has done the franchise well, and with a 9th and 10th film lined up, it`s good to see it still going strong to when it first started. Fast and Furious 8 is still in the cinemas at the time of this writing, and is worth strapping yourself in for the ride if you`ve not already.
