Fast and Furious 8 is the eight installment in the Fast and Furious franchise starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and his other team members from the previous film F7. This time Dominic Toretto goes rogue while on a mission and his own team has to stop him at any cost.
For the first time in this franchise, we have a lady villain in the form of a mysterious cyber-terrorist called ‘Cipher’ played by Charlize Theron who blackmails Toretto to rob some Russian nuclear codes.
F8 has more humor and more realistic action scenes as compared to F7. Two of the action sequences are mind blowing and worth mentioning:
1. When Cipher hacks into thousands of cars and uses them as zombies
2. A huge iron ball blows away all the cars from the road
What may disappoint you is that the villain never engages in a physical fight or a action sequence and it’s only computers and technology along with some evilish dialogues.
Overall F8 has all the elements for which the franchise is known for. It is a thrilling and entertaining ride with lots of surprises at the end.
