VIN DIESEL & PAUL WALKER IN FURIOUS 7
|2015 rating: ***1/2|
What 7 is to the entire franchise can be compared to MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, and not only because there’s a sequence taking place in the Arab Emirates. It's a straight-out action flick while the cars, and the characters… really one in the same… are but instruments being carried by instead of literally driving the plot, handed-off onto various agendas: first to rescue a hacker and then to find the main bad guy, played by Jason Statham, related to the previous villain and seeking hardcore revenge.
So for fans of the series, this will definitely be a worthy climax (although obviously not a conclusion) – and for those who don’t care much for the hip-hop MTV style testosterone of the previous ventures (like yours truly), there’s a lot to enjoy in a franchise that’s become so unbelievably farfetched, it all seems completely believable, somehow.
