    Furious 7, starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson is a movie that had high expectations before its release, primarily due to Paul Walker’s death, half-way through the filming of the movie. In my opinion, the movies in the Fast & Furious series have been disappointing but Furious 7 excels when I thought it wouldn’t. I found myself liking the movie and finally understood why so many people fell in love with this franchise.

    Furious 7 starts off from where Fast & Furious 6 left off. Fast & Furious 6 ended with the main antagonist of that film, Owen Shaw, nearly being killed. In Furious 7, Owen Shaw is comatose and his older brother Deckard Shaw, vows to take revenge on those that caused such injury to his brother.

    To get information on the people that did this to his brother, he engages a Diplomatic Security Service agent, Luke Hobbs in a fight and extracts the identities of the people from Luke’s office.

    Dominic Toretto, Brian O’Connor and their crew are the ones responsible for putting Owen in a coma in the previous movie. They’re former criminals and professional street racers that have settled down and tried to move on peacefully with their lives. Dom has settled down with his wife Letty, a professional street racer who suffers from amnesia. Brian is married to Mia and they have a son, Jack. Mia is also Dom’s brother and tells him that she’s pregnant again but is reluctant to tell Brian because she doesn’t want him to feel burdened by another child.

    Unfortunately, Deckard Shaw, bent on seeking revenge for his brother, attacks Dom’s crew. Dom and his crew try to track down Deckard to take him out but he slips away. Soon they are given the chance to retrieve a special program known as the God’s Eye, which utilizes complex technology to track anyone. If they retrieve this program and save it’s creator, they would be able to use the program to track down Deckard.

    Furious 7 had a good story and over the course of two hours, director James Wan was able to make the story flow extremely well. The one thing standing against this film was the over-the-top stunts; for example there’s a scene where cars are dropped out of an airplane when the team is going on their rescue mission. It doesn’t take a scientist to see how implausible that is and yet it didn’t bother me that this movie was full of these unrealistic stunts, simply because the movie was engaging and the story was good.

  • This is Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, otherwise known as Dom. He’s a former criminal and professional street racer, married to his wife Lettie. Vin Diesel did an excellent job in his role. He seemed to be the leader of his crew and showed genuine care for each member of his team. He displayed affection towards his wife and tried his best to deal with her amnesia in his own way. Diesel’s role, like every role in this film, is not complex, however he took his role and made it his own and it shows in this movie.

  • This is Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner a former FBI agent, criminal and professional street racer. As many of you probably know, Walker passed away halfway through the filming of this movie. He’d filmed a good portion of his scenes before he died and his brothers were used as stand-ins for the few remaining parts that he was needed in. Needless to say Walker as Brian was perfect. He came out strongly in action scenes and showed himself to be a man that truly loved his family. It was the last scene of the movie however that really touched me. It was a true farewell to Walker/Brian, with Dom remembering the times he’s had with Brian. Brian and Dom bid farewell to each other and head off in separate directions. Although the character of Brian still lives, it was a true goodbye to a man that has entertained everyone in many Fast & Furious movies.

  • This is Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs, a Diplomatic Security Service agent. Johnson pulled off his role effectively but what stood out to me was the incredible fight scene between Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. It was choreographed extremely well but the highlight for me was when Luke Hobbs performed ‘Rock Bottom’ on Deckard Shaw (Dwayne Johnson’s signature move as a wrestler was the Rock Bottom). It was done so well that for me I felt this scene stood out the most in the movie and overshadowed some of the other fight scenes a bit due to the sheer brilliance of it.

  • This is Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, a former special forces assassin and older brother of Owen Shaw, the main antagonist of the previous film. It was a delight watching Statham play this role because with his fighting expertise and his natural ability to maintain a stone facade, he was able to bring something new to his role. His main motivation is to avenge his brother and it drives him to do terrible things in the movie. Deckard Shaw vs Luke Hobbs, as I mentioned before was truly the best fight scene in this movie.

    Furious 7 is by far the best movie in the Fast & Furious franchise. It’s not a perfect movie, especially seeing how the movie takes a lot of liberties with basic physics, however it all comes together and the story moves smoothly. The fight scenes are fantastic, especially between Dwayne Johnson’s character of Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s character of Deckard Shaw. I would recommend this movie.

This movie is great, Im not really fond of action movies but this one’s good. I Love the part when the car flew. Haha It was so amazing and Ending part was the best I was actually expecting that there will be a tragedy at the end with Paul Walker. They thought of a really nice ending and a tribute to Paul Walker. So by far Fast and the furious 7 is awesome.

I agree. Too many action movies focus on the sequences, rather than how the story is told. This movie really stood out
