The Fate of the Furious

– I’ve watched most of this series with my Dad, and I think he would’ve enjoyed this one (even if it is a bit long [seriously, can they STOP making action movies so dang long? This one is ALMOST THREE HOURS]).
– An extremely entertaining movie in an always entertaining series.
– There were rumors that this was the last movie in the series, but you know how studios get when they can keep making $$$.
– The Rock is ENORMOUS. He looks like a drawing on some 12 year old boy’s paper-bag book cover that has now come to life but that boy has no idea how anatomy and body structure work and thinks “this is how a really muscular dude looks. More veins! Bigger shoulders!”. Take a life-drawing class, junior.
– They always seem to have a really fun soundtrack too, full of Caribbean hip-hop and American r&b jams.
– How do you not want to drive really fast after seeing one of these movies?
– I’m pretty sure the Rock is just recycling some of his old pro-wrestling trash-talk in this movie.
– Vin Diesel makes ANY dialog seem intense. I wonder how intimidating it is when he tells people he has to go to the bathroom. Get out of his way, folks.
– I wish Tyrese would get less “annoying character” roles and more mainstream “regular character” roles.
– Shout-out to Nathalie Emmanuel and her English accent. Yowza.
– There’s a submarine in this one. They race it. Submarines are fast.
– Final Letter Grade: B-
