But I have to say, with this seventh edition, they’ve gone so far over the top, so big, with so much more, the silly quotient has rolled back the fun of the last two movies a bit.
If big budget action and fast cars are what you want, there’s more than enough of those.
We begin with Shaw (Jason Statham, all grit), visiting his hospitalized crime lord brother (Luke Evans), and swearing revenge on the people who put him there.
Then we have Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) indulging in a little desert racing. Paul Walker died in a car accident as this film was being completed, so if there’s stuff about his character that feels sketchy, the way the script was rewritten to accommodate his absence may be to blame. Once Shaw puts Hobbs in hospital, he starts to show up all over the place, like at the funeral for Han.
The thing is, since Shaw keeps appearing wherever our team goes, why they sign up with Kurt and his crew beggars reason. Director James Wan sustains the established style as well as his franchise-saving predecessor, Justin Lin, including the gratuitous models in butt-floss bikinis, there’s something that feels a bit off this time.
Sure, the vehicular stunts are as inventive and outrageous as ever, including dropping a bunch of cars out the back of a cargo plane and having them parachute handily onto a mountain highway, which I gather wasn’t a special effect. But it’s the overuse of CGI in Furious 7 that turns some of these stunts into absolute cartoons.


But then, like the Lego Movie, the entire Furious franchise feels a lot like a story imagined by a little kid, so maybe its pointless to ask for too much realism in either the FX or anything else, and just enjoy the boys with toys. The outrageous manliness of all the cast (even Rodriguez) is still a consistent through-line.
At one point, Hobbs, still recovering from injuries sustained by a bomb and falling three storeys onto a car, tears off his cast and arms himself with a rotary cannon in order to take down a helicopter.
Vin Diesel is still the core of these movies, his Groot growl more grumbly and mumbly than ever,  though I was a bit bummed we don’t get to see him cooking up a BBQ for his peeps in this one. Or it just could be the already existing ham-handedness of the story, which is probably the clunkiest since 2 Fast 2 Furious.
Han’s the team member who died at the end of the last movie (and also at the end of the third movie, Tokyo Drift ). The American government wanting control of this thing seems scary to me, but it doesn’t bother anyone in the cast, who clearly are too busy living their lives a quarter mile at a time to worry about issues of privacy. I love the idea of driving a supercar out the side of a skyscraper and into another one (twice!), but at no time did I actually believe what I was seeing. It made me yearn for the days of Blue Thunder, when the actual chopper hung in the skies over the city, with Roy Scheider and Daniel Stern peeking into people’s windows. They dissolve the character he played with the actor he was, which makes for a touching montage and final drive into the sunset.


Offering the lowdown on everything that's anything in Halifax, Nova Scotia - where to eat, what to do, places to see, people to watch, opinions to read! If you ever wondered what a fight between The Rock and Statham would look like, here ya go. Literally everywhere they go to track down Ramsey and then her program—whether it’s Azerbaijan or Abu Dhabi—Shaw shows up with a big gun.
This isn’t Tom Cruise actually hanging outside the Burj Khalifa, this is really obvious computer animation. The explicit bromantic moment conjured with Diesel might be laughable if it weren’t so bloody sincere.
At night he stares out at the rain-slick streets, watches movies, and writes about what he's seeing.
