“Fast & Furious” may have been known for its adrenaline, high-speed car racing scenes, but there’s more to it than meets the eye, says critics in an early movie review for the upcoming installment to the franchise. Read on for the synopsis and review for “Fast & Furious 7.”
“Fast & Furious 7” Synopsis:
“Fast and Furious 7” will revolve around Dominic Torretto (played by Vin Diesel) and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) being chased around by Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham).
Deckard has promised revenge against Dom, Brian, and the gang after getting his brother, Owen Shaw killed in the “Fast & Furious 6.” Dom, Brian, Tej (Ludacris), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Roman (Tyrese Gibson) finally decide to team up and help the government by looking for the stolen “God’s Eye” and retrieve the creator of the said program, Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel).
“Fast & Furious 7” Review:
“Fast & Furious 7” pretty much feels like an ending to the franchise, described Charlie Schmidlin of The Playlist.
The movie might not have Paul Walker in it anymore, especially when he died in the midst of filming the movie in Nov. 2013. According to John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter, fans of the hit movie franchise will still be able to see Walker in most parts of the movie, thanks to stand-ins and CGI’s.
DeFore teases fans that Walker will be caught in a number of death defying scenes, wherein fans may think that it would be the scene where Walker’s character dies, only to find out that he survives. The cycle where Brian almost gets killed and survives repeats and viewers will be left with wonder as to whether or not Brian will survive through the end of the movie.
“The ‘Fast and Furious’ films are about two things, family and getting to watch a slew of explosive car stunts, and in that respect, ‘Furious 7’ delivers big, and perhaps even bigger than ever,” reviewed Perri Nemiroff of Collider.
“’Furious 7’ almost certainly won’t be the last ‘Fast & Furious’ movie. But at times it feels like the series’ farewell… The setpieces are bigger and crazier than ever, and it’s hard to imagine anyone topping them,” said Matt Singer of Screen Crush.
“Fast & Furious 7” premieres on April 3, 2015.
