Fast & Furious 7 (2015)
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
I can’t say I am the biggest fan of the Fast and Furious franchise as I have only seen around about 2 of these movies. However, saying that I know enough to able to watch this movie 🙂 . It is quite entertaining and captivating enough to keep you watching from beginning to the end. There are plenty of big action scenes in this that are pretty impressive 🙂 . Such as the driving the car through buildings or sky diving with the cars 😛 . Also the fight scenes with the villain Deckard Shaw ( Jason Stratham) were really cool. He made an impressive and deadly opponent plus the hospital scene at the beginning was a cool introduction to the character. I also really loved Paul Walker’s character and his scenes in this such as his “Jump from Coach on Cliff” and “slamming door shut to protect child” were great 😀 ! However, the overall awesomeness was not carried over entirely and some moments struggle to deliver. Of course we have the bikini’s, fast cars, bums on show and the occasional “sexy” car wash but that is expected with the franchise 😛 . There was a weak fighting scene with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and the female guards. It was not very impressive and looked weak compared to the men fights in the movie. If you took this scene out I don’t think the movie would be affected at all. Even the character of Letty and the other female characters weren’t that good. She came off a little bit boring even with her amnesia storyline and no other female character was memorable. Though, some of men were not good either such as Roman (Tyrese Gibson), who at times became irritating to hear his over-the-top jokes. This is not to say it’s a terrible movie because I did enjoy watching and the ending was good 🙂 . I think you have to watch all the other films first to appreciate this movie as for me I felt at a disadvantage. The storyline was good, villain impressive, the action scenes great and a fitting movie in dedication to Paul Walker 🙂 . A must see for those who love franchise and a decent movie for those who don’t 😛 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
