Fast And The Furious 8 – Trailer
So, Fast And The Furious 8 starts in Cuba, where Dom (Vin Diesel) with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) is having the best part of his life, they are supposedly on their honeymoon and driving cars and racing the hell out with tough guys. Dom continues to earn respect there as well. Soon, Dom is approached by Cipher (Charlize Theron), a woman with some vicious intensions for the entire world. Things take a dreadful turn when Dom accepts to work for Cipher and turns his back on his “Family”. This gets messier when Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) is sent to prison because of Dom. In the prison, he encounters Deckard (Jason Statham) and they start wrangling. Soon, Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) makes a plan to fetch Dom and Cipher with the team of Dom, whom he recently ditched. What happens next is what makes Fast and the Furious 8 worth a watch. There is emotion, there’s drama, there’s genuine fun and there are larger than life stunts which are brilliant.
When you have a good list of mega stars in a movie, it is difficult to give every star their due moments but in Fast and the Furious 8 this aspect is brilliantly handled. Everyone in this sequel have their fair share of moments, be it Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron and Tyrese Gibson. Performance wise, everyone stands out in their characters. Vin Diesel looks and breathes his character and he is a natural in the entire movie. Dwayne Johnson is the highlight of the movie. He is good in comic scenes and fabulous in fight sequences. Jason Statham steals the show especially in the climax fight and when he comes face to face with Johnson.
Charlize Theron as “crocodile in the sea” is very effective. She flawlessly holds her command on her character. Tyrese Gibson brings smile in multiple scenes and “Number 11, My Ass” is a sure take home dialogue, along with “Revenge of The Nerd or Black Knight”. Even Scott Eastwood (Little Nobody) does pretty well.
Fast And The Furious 8 is as expected in terms of flying cars, gigantic stunts, heroic punchlines and hard to believe storytelling where just one man is fighting against the national armies (Cuba, Russia and New York etc.) but it has a heavy dose of entertainment. Two and a half hours of non-stop entertainment. If you are a Fast And The Furious series fan this one is by far the most interesting watch! GO watch it.
