The Fate of the Furious Review: Revs Up the Absurdity and Excitement for the Series!
The Fate of the Furious continues the story of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). While on his honeymoon with Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) Dom is confronted by a woman named Cipher (Charleze Theron) who forces the once criminal to work for her. After betraying his crew, Dom disappears and goes along with Cipher's scheme. With the help of Frank Petty (Kurt Russell) Letty, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) and rest of the crew (Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Nathalie Emmanuel) have to track down Dom and stop Cipher; which is easier said than done as the group must enlist the help of once antagonist Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham).
While it could revel in its own absurdity The Fate of the Furious managed to live up to the standards of this action series. Although its sense of storytelling, character development and action felt typical the execution of each made all the difference as they managed to work within the confines of this installment. To put it simply The Fate of the Furious was simple, crazy and pretty much just another addition to the Fast and the Furious franchise-but that did not make it any less entertaining.
