★★★★★ - A Review by Cameron Kanachki
"I don't think I need to remind you why you chose to be here." "I got no choice!" That's a part of an argument between Charlize Theron & Vin Diesel in The Fate of the Furious, one of the best films in the Fast & Furious franchise. Diesel reprises his role as Dominic "Dom" Toretto, who is approached by cyberterrorist Cipher (played by Charlize Theron) to work for her. After declining at first, Dom is shown something by Cipher that changes his mind. After working on a job in Berlin with Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson), Letty Toretto (played by Michelle Rodriguez), Roman Pearce (played by Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (played by Chris "Ludacris" Bridges) & Ramsey (played by Nathalie Emmanuel), Dom forces Hobbs off the road, eventually leading to the arrest of the rest of the crew. Hobbs is imprisoned with Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham), who the crew defeated in Furious 7. Eventually, Hobbs & the crew are forced by Mr. Nobody (played by Kurt Russell) & Little Nobody (played by Scott Eastwood) to work with Shaw to find Dom & get him back.
The cast is great. F. Gary Gray's direction is excellent. Chris Morgan's screenplay is excellent. And the editing by Christian Wagner & Paul Rubell is excellent. This is definitely an over-the-top but excellent film.
