The Fate of the Furious Review

Given that The Fate of the Furious is the eighth entry in the surprisingly enduring Fast & Furious franchise, we all know what to expect from a Fast film by now: muscular men in muscle shirts driving muscle cars, scantily clad women cheering them on, increasingly outrageous action set-pieces and, most important of all, family. As much as the series’ focus has shifted from street racing toward grand-scale heists and globe-trotting espionage, it has also doubled down on its focus on the family at the centre of it all. Familial themes powered both Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7 and are once again integral here, with one particularly juicy hook: fiercely loyal patriarch Dom Torretto (Vin Diesel) has turned on his makeshift family.

Where the '79 film was filled with horror and drenched in the paranoia that was so prevalent in that decade, Prometheus has a sense of curiosity and wonderment running through it's ambitious but messy plot.

Reuniting for the first time since 2007's Oscar winning Juno, writer Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman have dialled back the quirk for Young Adult, a darker, edgier character study of Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron), a divorced 37 year old ghost writer of young adult fiction.
