That a series so proudly, artlessly idiotic continues to rake in so much money is perhaps only fitting in this bona-fide idiocracy. As blatantly sexist as ever, too, yet I doubt we'll see any Vice articles about it; no points for picking at something that isn't even trying.
In terms of sheer spectacle, no wilder film exists. Self-driving cars rain from the sky, Vin Diesel grabs tight to a flaming steering wheel, Jason Statham holds a baby (wearing Beats by Dre headphones) during a shootout, a submarine explodes and the heroes escape without a scratch. It's purely elemental: fire, ice, product placement. Also, no film more clearly shows that the modern family is built upon massacre.
27/100 (Beğenmiyorsan izleme diyeceksiniz doğru zaten ben olsam izlemezdim ama arkadaşımın ısrarları yüzünden açtık. Filmin bir çok yerinde siktir ordan demekten yoruldum. Arabaların ele geçirilip zombi gibi dolaşmaları ve son hızda giden füzeyi elle durdurma sahnelerine avazım çıktığı kadar kahkaha attım. Walker anısı, T.Gibson'ın esprileri ve Statham'ın oyunculuğu için bu berbat film benden yüksek puan aldı !)
If Fast Five was the franchise's Bad Boys II, Fate of the Furious is Transformers II: it make the series as bad, incoherent, contrived and lifeless as its detractors make it out to be, casting aside characters and directing. F. Gary Gray only set out to make a dumb action flick, but these movies deserve better.
Las explosiones y escenas de acción son lo que más te jala de la película. El guión no me gustó del todo. La franquicia de Rápidos y Furiosos se vende más por lo sensacionalista que por hacer películas con buenas historias. El cambio de bando de Toretto te hace preguntarte qué va a pasar entre él y Letty. 3.5 stars.
Diesel's oily-mits seem to leaving finger-marks all over my nice chassis; F8 stakes an emotional investment in the Charmless Giant's talents which don't pay off. Combined with a director talentless in action, misguided villain circa 1998, an over-reliance on bad CGI. Then again, the prison break.
I need to rant on this - not just on the film and how I felt about it, but also on criticism and the absurdity of the arbitrary scale system -, but I mostly feel really confused about how I don't think this should be considered a film (since one's got to categorize everything) and how that'd relate to a style of filmmaking I despise and the entertaining outcomes it comes with.
Fast the Furious: Villain Rehabilitation Edition. Seriously fuck this movie; the film goes out of it's way to drool over the villains of the previous films solely due their masculine and violent attributes. Statham's character gets buddy buddy with everyone and heroically defends a baby and a film that forgets he burned Han alive in 6. The sole vitriol is saved for Theron because she was Furiosa in Fury Road.
Vin Diesel goes from Christ-like figure (his "let the children come to me" moment happens before the title card) to traitorous Judas in this semi-overwrought, patently ludicrous sequel. The onscreen pairing of a never-better Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham helps "Fate" put some gas in the tank, with Statham in particular allowed to be more charming and lethal here than he was in any given "Expendables" flick.
