I went to see Furious 7 this weekend. First of all, if you haven’t seen it, and want any details, S-T-O-P reading here!! Otherwise keep reading.
Furious 7. The next installment of the Fast and Furious series. I must say I was HIGHLY impressed. I think they did a fantastic job with the movie and honoring Paul Walker. The movie was fast pace and highly action packed. The movie started off fast and ended just as explosive! I loved how they didn’t kill Paul Walker off like they initially thought about doing. Paul’s brother that filled in on some of the last scenes that were filmed worked really well with the technology. It was delivered flawlessly.
The path and journey they take you on starting with the attack on Hobbs is a totally roller coaster. You will l laugh, sit on the edge of your seat and possibly shed a few tears by the end of the movie. All the actors and actresses did a wonderful job with their roles. Needless to say I hate that they made Jason the bad guy, but he played it so well, I didn’t like the character. LOL That’s a good thing. It was nice to see the link from Tokyo Drift blend in well with the movie. I thought at first it was going to be forced, but they did a great job with that. Some of the fight scenes, they could have done a better job with. I mean, the Rock and Jason fighting. Both strong men, but why did some of the scenes seem so one-sided like one or the other wasn’t fighting. This movie had a lot home humor than the previous movies. This installment will not fail you. You will thoroughly enjoy it on every level.
My favorite part of the movie was the end, the tribute to Paul Walker. I stated before, it was a very nice tribute. Almost had me in tears. I know I may not know him personally, or have seen ALL of his movies. What I do know is this, the ones I have seen, he’s done a great job. The way they wrapped up the movie was very fitting. Very good movie all the way around.
Rating: 5 stars
