So I ended this weekend sitting in a comfortable movie chair watching The Fate of The Furious. I must say although each movie tends to get more and more unrealistic they keep getting better as well. There were so many instances in this film where i just scratched my head and asked why.
My original thought that since this would be the first movie of the series without Paul Walker that it would go back to the roots of all the movies that had Paul in them. I thought that the film was going to be full of street racing, and American muscle, but it wasn’t that way by any means and I wasn’t upset in the slightest. It was action packed with fighting and shootouts (right down my alley).
The story line had me upset for the first bit of the movie because i did not know what Dom’s reasoning for his action was. Once i realized what was going on i saw the great theme of American life presented. This theme presented was family, it is not a new theme because Dom has preached this message in every movie, but because of his circumstances he brought another meaning to family. I won’t spoil the movie for anyone, but Dom joins forces with enemies and individuals that have killed his family all to bring his family back together. I really want to spoil this movie right now, but I won’t i just encourage individuals to go watch because the ending will touch you in a way you didn’t think it would.
