Movie Reviews – ‘Fast and Furious 8’
Have you gone to see the new Fast And Furious movie? I did, and I got to tell you there were a lot of explosions, but I think the story line was solid.
A lot has changed in the 'Fast And Furious' line of movies. What started out as a thinly veiled car show about street racing, has evolved into at an Armageddon, end-of-days, super cyber hacker, nuclear submarine, hundred explosion-epic movie that rivals the super hero blockbusters. There were many plots and sub plots, but it was still easy to follow. The fact that there was character development, and family values tells me the movie went above expectations. It was PG-13 and I felt no cringe moments when looking around the room at the kids. It was appropriate, except for the violence, but hey, it's just a movie.
It was no secret that Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson were not getting along during the filming of the movies. Even watching the film, there might have been 2 or 3 times that they even appeared in the same scene.
There is talk about in the future they are all going to get their own spin off movies. Keeping the franchise going far into the future for both actors. So I look forward to more explosions and exotic vehicles.
I give the movie 4 out of a possible 5 Lamborgini's. I liked it, but I also love action movies, so if you like watching things blow up "real good" this one is for you.
