Furious 7 Review: The franchise tie-in lives up to the hype


The Hit:
Furious 7 did not disappoint. The entire franchise ties in and we see the main character in that movie for just a glimpse by the name of Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) and he talks to the main man Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and is set out to get back at the person who killed Han (Sung Kang). I really don't want to spoil anything and would urge you to go watch this movie. New people are introduced like Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), Owen Shaw's older brother from the last movie. He turned out to be a great villain.The fight scene between him and the Rock is pretty sick.

Others like Kurt Russell, the new babe Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Ronda Rousey, and Eden Estrella, a little girl who turns out to be Hobbs' daughter with an attitude were magnificent and some came with comedy to make it even better. There's others I didn't mention and besides the regular crew this movie was full of action, action, and even more action but there was also some comedic relief.

Some scenes were out of this world and could never happen but it's a movie and was really enjoyable. I would love to tell you what happens and what scenes were my favorite but again I want you to go see this movie on your own asap. If some of you were wondering if Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) dies in the movie, I'm not spoiling anything by saying this but he does not die and the way he parts ways with the group is so touching that if I wasn't around my bros I'd probably have shed a tear or two. It was good how they did it. Big respect to the crew, director and writers, they did the right thing. 

If you like the Fast and Furious franchise you can guess what I will say: so go to your nearest movie theater, grab some popcorn and drinks and enjoy the show. Take your friends and if you leave the parking lot speeding off after the show, may you live life fast and furious. 

The Verdict:
Green Light (Go See It)
