Warning: SPOILERS for The Fate of the Furious below

First of all You will not find paul walker in the latest installment of the franchise Out of respect for Walker, the Brian O’Conner character won’t be recast. His character is simply retired, and the franchise continues without him but they didn’t forget him and pays a lovely and emotional tribute to the late star.



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 (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.



As  Kurt Russell as  Mr Nobody says: “Rule number one. Know your audience.” , Oh yes, Furious franchise knows their audience very well.


The opening sequence where Dom is racing a car backwards and while on fire, Dom agrees to race a Cuban hipster-bully who tried to make off with his cousin’s car.the good news is that his car will go fast, and the bad news is that his car will definitely explode. The entire scene is ridiculous and crazy, Dom hooked a tank of nitrous oxide to the engine.[‘nitrous oxide’ And that is enough for most of us to give us a goosebumps !!] .you’ll probably be on the edge of your seat throughout the race and nailed the hipster bully and with his style by not taking his car ‘The Dom Style’ a Good heart thief as always.


This is a major strength of this movie, starting from this scene and continuing through the finish: The action is not just big — big is easy. It’s creative. It’s well choreographed. It’s unexpected and delightful.


We meet Dominic, happy and smiling through life, enjoying a with his wife in Havana and then comes a villain , an international cyber terrorist in the form of Charlize Theron as Cipher,

asked dom that he’s about to go to work for her and against his family. When he refuses, she shows him something on a cell phone that force him to change his mind. What is it? The film keeps us in suspense for a while.


In the other side Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell), using force or threats asked Dom’s crew into going back to work for him this all process also include Johnson’s Hobbs in prison, and plot his escape  along with Statham’s Deckard Shaw,  with this two you can feel old bromance of fast series like paul walker and vin diesel. The real star of "The Fate of the Furious" is Jason Statham, the finest addition to the "Fast" franchise since The Rock in "Fast Five.".  "Fate" uses Statham to its full advantage as he's seen flipping off of prison cages and taking down men to get his way out of the place in an early scene.  


It's one of the single most enjoyable scenes of the entire movie. And that's not even the best scene with Statham. And over the movie goes you might forget that he was the killer of Han.


A chase through Manhattan, with an army of remote-controlled “zombie” cars trapping the vehicle of the Russian defense minister, who is toting a suitcase of nuclear codes, really seems to be taking place in teeming, anything-goes New York City. It culminates in Dom facing down his colleagues, who spear his jet-black Mad Max mobile from four directions, and that still isn’t enough to stop the guy.


The movie climaxes with a showdown at a military outpost in the frozen Russian wasteland, and the sequence has everything: Dodging a submarine, redirecting a torpedo with your hand, arm curling a steel bench, and pretty much stopping World War 3 are only a few of the things the team have to do.


When all this was happening Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) was busy in fighting against all crew of villain Cipher on her plane. He takes down a plane full of men while holding a baby. And not just any baby.( here comes a spoiler) He's protecting Dominic Toretto's baby boy in a car seat. Shaw places a set of headphones over the baby's ears and puts on "The Chipmunk Song" to keep him occupied as Shaw moves from one man to the next.


The final scene of the movie also features the whole team together for a rooftop cookout, as we have seen in past series a famous family dinner. Where dom was about to get his special delivery from Deckard Shaw -is that Elena (Elsa Pataky) gave birth to Dom’s son without telling him, and Cipher had kidnapped them both, which is why Dom “went bad” . But Dom Could not save elena , cipher killed her. As for why his son was unnamed,  Before her death Elena tells Dom she chose a middle name — Marcos — but that she wants Dom to pick his first name.


So, in the last shot of the film, Dom introduces everyone  by saying “Everyone meet Brian.” and it surely will bring tears to your eyes if you are a true Paul Walker Fan.
