I have loved the Fast & Furious franchise since the beginning (yes, even Tokyo Drift).
This series has never been famous for its intelligent plot ever. Just made for entertainment with cars , action and girls in bikini. And Furious 7 delivers everything and more.
Dom and family are now back in LA where it all began so long ago, but things are now different. With them going back to Los Angeles, we get a trip down memory lane from seeing old sets that were in the first one as well as a few cameos from some of the cast that was there too.
What makes this movie stand out from its predecessors is how it goes beyond the modding of Japanese street cars to engaging the viewer with a very decent storyline that pulls together all of the previous movies.
Apart from the Brilliant Babes, Remarkable Rides and the Climactic Clashes, what strikes most in the movie is the truth in emotion felt throughout the movie.
So, does the film actually match the excitement?
U know what, it exceeds it and takes action film limits to an even further level. There is no place on earth where you will find better crafted entertainment, action is an art and boy do these filmmakers excel at it.
It is a two hour rush of adrenaline. Scene after scene you're thinking how the hell are they going to top that? The action--oh my god!
The franchise might have lost Paul Walker, but it manages to keep the film to the edge of the seat climax.
The tribute given by Vin Diesel for him is absolutely superb. It was very touching when he said,"It's never Goodbye" and when they separate in cross roads, it was really amazing to give such a tribute to Paul Walker.
After this scene, you finally realize that you will never see Walker starring in a movie ever again. But you also realize that his final movie was one worth remembering him for.
If you are looking for little story, more car chases, stupendous action and violence and hot babes, Furious 7 is your ticket.
The scenes shot in Dubai are particularly spectacular, with lush resorts, exotic cars being driven off hotel rooftops and crashing into an art gallery, ah! What wonders F7 takes you to!
'Furious 7' has style & substance. The Script is perfectly done, while the Action-Sequences leave you stunned. You will cheer each time a car collides with another, or when a car flies from one building to another. When was the last time an Escapist flick left you awe-struck, been a while right? Finally, 'Furious 7' does that!
This movie is way different than the previous installments, due to James Wan. After the success of The Conjuring, Director James Wan has not let me down with the movie.
You will not be disappointed.
I give it a 9/10.
