After the events of the previous films Dom, Brian, Letti, and Mia return to the United States of America to try to resume their normal lives. Letti is trying to remember who she was, but all she gets is pain. All parties are trying to figure if their racing days are over, though they still love cars.
Meanwhile, Deckard Shaw, brother of the last film’s antagonist is there to avenge his comatose brother. He murders Han (seen in The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift) and then comes after Dom’s family. Dom and Brian gather the crew together, including Roman and Tej to go after Deckard with the help of Luke Hobbs and a CIA Special Agent Frank Petty, who helps in exchange of them stopping a terrorist find a computer program called God’s Eye.
As Deckard gets closer and closer to home, Dom and the crew must come to terms that this might just be their last ride.
As with previous films in the franchise, this film has physics defying stunts, unrealistic car chases, over-the-top action, and some cheesy dialogue. In other words, it is awesome! The film is the best one in the series and I am looking forward to the next installment.
On a personal note, it is sad that this will be Paul Walker’s final film in this series. His brothers make great stand-ins and the Weta Workshop (yes, the same from The Lord of the Rings trilogy) did great job with his recreating him. He was such a staple in the series and they do a good job of sending him off.
