I have been waiting on pins and needles for this movie. I am undeniably Paul Walker’s biggest fan. (Based on an extensive poll I conducted during lunch today with my daughter.) I had absolutely no idea how they were going to proceed with his last film. They didn’t disappoint me. It was tastefully done, they didn’t go cheesy.
Throughout the entire film I was worried that the movie was going to take a turn that was going to devastate me. I won’t lie and say that I didn’t cry, I did. It was touching. At the end of the movie the screen flashed, “For Paul.” The theater erupted into a furious applause. I felt a wonderful sense of pride for a truly talented actor. Paul will be forever missed.
I have to do a special shout out to Tyrese Gibson, that dude is hysterical! He has such a presence that you can’t help but cackle at what and how he says things. He brought another special layer to this movie. I was appreciative of the fact that there was a bunch of humor thrown in. It helped pull the movie together.
I can’t decide who gets the bad ass award. Jason Statham, The Rock, Vin Diesel or Michelle Rodriguez? They all kicked some serious arse. All the fight scenes were incredible. No complaints in that department.
The cars. Oh man, the cars. They are racing down the sides of mountains, parachuting out of planes and crashing through skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi. Enough said, that stuff was off the charts.
If there were a grade better than an A, this movie would get it! Thank you movie makers. You made this fan super happy.
