Fast & Furious 8 Movie Review
This is the for the first time since 2001, the movie has showcased mindless, over the top, unthinkable action. Also, the charisma of the lead actors and some mind blogging actions sequences go hand in hand. Unlike the previous edition, when the film used to be centered around shoulders of lead pairs Paul and Vin, this time it was just Vin, but what the director tried not to let the film one man-centric.
The good thing about Fast and Furious are the amazing action scenes which begin from the start. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jason Statham, and rest of the cast managed our eyes glued to the screen just for the sheer spectacle of complete mayhem in the flick.
Although the film does have plenty of loopholes which has more to do with the scripts. Some of the characters were not up to the mark, one of the Jason Statham’s. Also few of the twists in the middle of the story were surprising, most of them were predictable. More often, it seemed that the crew failed to portray the desirable character, which certainly leads to lost its space in the middle.
Fast & Furious 8 Movie Review by Critics
Review By: Shalini Site: Indian Express
As the case is, we have ourselves a Charlize Theron as the digital whiz-kid ‘Cipher’. She is wicked, she is evil, she is stunning, and she rules this one, without even getting behind a wheel. What about the cars, you ask? Even as the films come fast and furious (eight in 16 years), there are fewer and fewer grounds left to break. This one, with Gary Gray at the helm for first time, skates on thin ice. Literally.
Review By: Neil Site: Times Of India
Eight movies into ‘Fast and Furious’, one would think the testosterone-fueled concept of speeding cars that defy the laws of physics would begin to start losing steam. But Vin Diesel with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jason Statham and crew manage to keep our eyes glued to the screen just for the sheer spectacle of complete mayhem that ensues.There’s much to enjoy when cars are flying around the screen, even if logic takes flight with them. Some of the sequences are absolutely preposterous, but make for such a dazzling display of destruction that allow you to appreciate the audacity of the filmmakers to even conjure them up! Traditional to big-budget films today, the plot leaves room for yet another outing, although at this point one wonders how much gas is left in the tank of this franchise.
Review By: Rohan Site: Hindustan Times
Fast and Furious 8, or The Fate of the Furious if we were to call it by its more inventive title, is not as deliriously over-the-top as 5, it isn’t as emotional as 7, and it isn’t as all around awesome as Tokyo Drift (which is, unconventionally, my favourite of the bunch). But none of this matters. Because in it, Vin Diesel races a nuclear missile. It is, however, the strangest, darkest, and the most deviant film in the series.
Fast & Furious 8 Ratings
More than the story, the movie seems to be focused on CGI, action scenes and music score. Also, the movie is highly filled with actions scenes which seem too far away from reality. Well, Keeping the not so – real- scenes aside, the movie is a pure fun and entertainment experience mainly for the youths out there.
Though the movie isn’t better than the previous franchise, it is fun on its own way which is a worth to watch on a silver screen.
Fast & Furious 8 has received an average Ratings on its first day of release with 3.5 out of 5 stars.
