Filled with action and adventure the latest movie in the Furious catalog does not disappoint. The Fate of the Furious proves to be thrilling and entertaining, even for the novice fan of the franchise.

With Dom gone rogue his crew is forced to work with Deckard (Jason Statham) in an attempt to get back what Dom has taken. The official synopsis is at the bottom.

The action in this movie never stops. Car races, car chases, quick whit and a German submarine keep the audience on their toes from beginning to end. Bring your sense of humor and a large popcorn.

This movie gets a solid 4 stars. There is some course language and fighting violence which means it will not be the best choice for younger audiences. All it all it is a great addition to the franchise.

SYNOPSIS

On the heels of 2015’s Furious 7, one of the fastest movies to reach $1 billion worldwide in box-office history and the sixth-biggest global title of all time, comes the newest chapter in one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time: The Fate of the Furious.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life.  But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell.  In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar® winner Helen Mirren.  The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Diesel.
