Most people I hear were buzzing about Fast & Furious 8, some positive and some negative. I’ve heard people say “Oh here we go… another Fast & Furious movie” followed by rolling eyes. However, I’m a huge action movie fan and I was anticipating a great action movie that included “The Rock” and Vin Diesel.
The story starts off with a great racing scene complete with almost hard to believe details, but I didn’t mind. What’s a Fast & Furious movie without racing and cars blowing up all over the place. I have always loved the story line, my favourite being Tokyo Drift. Joined by villainess Charlize Theron, in this movie, it had all the twist and turns of a race track.
The story was that of betrayal and involved a lot of history. I loved that the villain was a woman and the story takes you all the way to the arctic. Many reviews have not been favourable but I happen to love the cheesiness and the unbelievable events that happen. It’s hard to be cynical when I think about Alien, Commando, even the latest great saga of The Game of Thrones.
If you like movies like Mission Impossible and the 007 movies, you will enjoy this movie. For me, it was nonstop action and I was locked onto that screen. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves good ol’ fashion action sprinkled with humour and drama.
I’d love for you to let me know your thoughts after you watch it.
Happy movie watching
