    Still Fast, Still Furious

    The Fate Of The Furious is the 8th movie in The Fast & The Furious franchise. Remember to watch the franchise in this order: The Fast & The Furious; 2 Fast 2 Furious; Fast & Furious; Fast Five; Fast & Furious 6; The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift; Furious 7; The Fate Of The Furious This franchise started out as a uncover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of street racers who are suspected to also using their cars to hijack shipments of electronics. The agent ends up becoming part of their family and later movies in the franchise have their team using their driving skills to pull off incredible heists and missions. Each movie in the franchise furthers the overall story line and the same core characters keep returning while each movie adds new characters and stories. There is lots of action, lots of fast cars, danger, comedy, and things you never thought you would see a car do. In The Fate Of The Furious, the team leader is black mailed into using his skills to help a cyber terrorist steal different things that will allow the cyber terrorist to control a submarine full of nuclear missiles. The CIA recruits the rest of the team to stop him. This movie is like Gone In 60 Seconds meets Ocean's 11. [NOTE: Best Buy sells The Fate Of The Furious movie by itself, but if you are interested in checking out the whole franchise Best Buy sells a box set of The Fast & The Furious that includes all 8 movies (including this one)]

    On par with Furious 7 no doubt

    When I first heard the news of Paul Walker's passing during the filming of Furious 7, I was devastated because I literally grew up watching The Fast and the Furious movies and to me, Paul Walker was an integral part of what made these movies great in my book. I wonder how this would affect Furious 7 but somehow it didn't for as far as I am concerned, the movie was great. This however lead me to another question, how would these movies continue without Paul Walker?, well I'm glad to report that The Fate of the Furious is on par with Furious 7 no doubt and while there are certain things character and story wise that I didn't agree with, it in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the film. This entry has without a doubt elevated the action even more than in the previous installment (aside from the plane sequence, the tower sequence, and the end sequence). In the end, those who loved Furious 7 will most certainly enjoy this follow up.

    Fantastic Film with Fun Extras

    The film as a whole is delightfully fun. It's especially rewarding to long time fans who have grown with the characters over the course of the first seven films, because this one has the most continuity nods with bringing back older characters that may have been forgotten in the shuffle. It's a blast to watch and absolutely focuses on fun. The Rock and Statham are especially great with their chemistry bounding off the screen time and time again. Definitely a well crafted movie, and one that's for the fans while also entering a new era of the Furious franchise. As for the extras there isn't much. Some cool mini behind the scenes on how they do the stunts, but what's worth your money is the commentary by director F. Gary Gray. He is hysterical and absolutely a joy to listen to as he gushes over their process to destroying multi-million dollar cars, and how scenes were shot and set up to perform those amazing stunts. Definitely recommend.

    You know, I totally get that some people think these movies are really stupid because they're fake as can be. And they've got story lines that are choppy at best. That's fine. I totally agree with all of that. And yet . . . I still get sucked in. There's just something fun about watching the action & the interaction between the people. And they just keep adding more big-name actors/actresses. I thought it couldn't get any better after Jason Statham, but Helen Mirren too? Love her! I laughed so hard at the end with the baby scene, even though it was cheesy as can be! And Kurt Russell's "Mr. Nobody" character has cracked me up since he first appeared in a prior movie, and he continues to entertain in this movie! So if you enjoy the series, this movie's definitely worth the watch!

    I highly recommend this movie. I'm a fan of the Fast and Furious movies but Fate of the Furious (#8) is by far the best out of the last 3 or 4 movies. When you buy it, cause I know you will, make sure to get the steel book version. The "die cast aluminum" type material they use for it is much better quality that the basic plastic case. It made a real cool addition to our DVD collection. The 4K picture quality was amazing. This movie deserves to be watched on either 4K or at least blu-ray. You're wasting your money if you get this one on standard DVD.

    Another Furious with a lot of action and noise

    Hey, this is a franchise that continues to please its loyal followers. The movie has a lot of action and keeps you wondering what the heck is going on with Vin. Has he really double crossed his team or does some nasty chick have something over on him. Well, that is why you need to watch this movie. I am personally a big Jason Statham fan, but prefer to see him in his own movies where he is the protagonist, not the other guy. This movie does have some interesting plot twists and the end is crazy.. If you liked the other Furious movies, then this will probably be one you will want to see. If you are new to the franchise, then you should start with at least the 5th one, then 6, then this one IMO.

    I'm a true Fast and Furious fan, one who saw the original movie in theaters and has stuck with the series all along, even after the overall catastrophe that is Tokyo Drift. I feel that how the extended edition of 7 ends with the Paul Walker tribute is how the series should have wrapped up permanently. That said, I have to admit that 'Fate' drew me in and kept my attention. The action is solid, and the driving scenes are top notch, as always. Story line was better than I initially expected. Overall, I believe If you're a true fan of the series you won't be disappointed. I believe this is one of Vin Diesel's best performances as Toretto. Worth a watch for sure.

    Each movie in this series is better than the last. Looking back at all the movies in the series there is one that is not so great you know the one ;) (at the time it was different cool then - looking at the entire body of work so far now not so much) The series has done a great job of taking viewers through the ups and downs of the characters which have you looking forward to the next movie. Additionally A+++ to the writers who out do themselves with each new movie when they bring new stunts and actions sequences that top the ones in the previous movie. These movies do not disappoint if you are a F&F fan. Looking forward to the next one.

    It was fate I wouldn't be furious. Yet another winner from the acting team that hasn't disappointed since movie #1. Treat yourself to slam bang action and special effects unrivaled by most movies you've seen to date. Sure, we know that Dom and crew will always save the day. The fun part is seeing how they'll do it this time. Well folks, this time they took it up a notch, made new friends out of enemies, oh and yeah, Dom even told on one dude to his mom. I laughed, I enjoyed, I was entertained from beginning to end and you will be too. Strap yourself in for another wild ride. Make THIS your next movie night.

    I have been a fan of "The Fast and The Furious" franchise since the 1st movie was introduced in 2001. Since then, the series has had it's ups and downs, however, when "Fast & Furious" was released, I felt the saga was back on the right track. Since then, the movies have steadily become more and more entertaining. "Fate" finds a way to put a few new twists on the story while still sticking to the overall theme of the saga. One of the best FF movies yet and another solid entry. My only wish would have been to see how much better Paul Walker would have made it. If you like the series, add it to the collection; especially in 4K!

    With this many movies in, most people likely have their opinion of the "Fast & Furious" franchise set. If you dislike the movies, this one isn't going to change your mind. If you're a fan of the movies for what they are (as I do), you'll likely enjoy this one. The conspiracy/betrayal angle was a bit better than the one with Hetty's return a while back. A few twists and a cameo add to the intrigue. The BluRay looks & sounds great. I was a little disappointed that the extended version is only available through streaming (not in the package itself), so I'll finally have to get that set up.

    Was skeptical of this movie with the absence on Paul Walker (RIP), but was stunned by the beautiful scenes and overall plot. This movie has a great way to show little bits that leave you hanging until the motives (or tactics) are revealed later in movie. Story wise, the movie flows very well and keeps you entertained throughout the movie. Would definitely recommend for both people who are new to franchise and those who have followed all along, like I have as this movie provides a new story environment while also incorporating what F&F fans have grown to love. A++

    The only other movie that I had seen in this franchise was the first. So I missed a lot of history in between the first and this one. That being said, I loved this movie for the pure fun of it, and I did not feel that I needed to see the others to enjoy this one. There was only one point regarding the antagonist, that may have helped me a bit regarding motivation, if I had seen a previous movie. Still, it was great fun, especially if you like the main actors in this one! Give it a shot, and enjoy!

    These movies are awesome. Whats even better is the 4k on this disc, and the dolby vision takes it to another level. Im very picky about what 4k titles to buy because picture quality is important to me. Theres this reviewer on youtube "Brass Tax", honestly, the best 4k reviewer out there (very funny but extremely knoledgable on 4k) I dont buy a disc without watching his review first as he is spot on!. Heres the link for his review on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_Ah5ycpH0I&t=64s Check him out, you'll thank me!

    Movie full of drama and stunts, all very well done and quite entertaining. Love Best Buy's Steelbook collections, they bring a touch of additional prestige to done of today's best movies and most legendary past movies. Highly recommend getting Steelbook movies when possible as they tend to keep Blue Ray movies in safe packaging for a long time all while providing a special esthetic look. I'm a movie collector and look to purchase Steelbook movies when possible and when price difference is not overly different.

    * some spoiler * Actually, the opening sequence was not satisfactory, but later I found that this story was linked to the other moment. In that sense, it is quite well organized story. So far, the scene of BB8 from Star Wars was the best part of my movie moment, but now I can tell that Jason's moment on the plane with the baby is my new best part. Its scale gets bigger and bigger, so somewhat worrying about what next, but still it is one of the best action movies so far. Much better than Transformers.

    The story continues with the great cast. I am sad the Paul Walker is gone and to me he was a big part in making these films great. The story is good and Vin is awesome. The Rock is his standard character. The rest of the cast is fantastic. Lots of action and over the wall scenes. In a way I miss the good car races and chases of the other films. Hollywood is dumbing down movies for the limited attention span of the young generation. Worth watching and everyone will enjoy this, besides that fact.

    A fun and fast ride which has all of the gang chasing down Dom who went rogue for no reason(to them). Stunts are getting to be too over the top, but it is still a fun trip. Ending is begging for a sequel. Action scenes are very good and intense. Don't like that the franchise wants to keep killing characters that you love. Jason Statham was great as always with good performances by Vin Diesel and the Rock. I would recommend this movie and it adds to your collection of Fast and Furious.

    I mean what more is there to say than Vin Diesel carries this franchise. With the loss of Paul Walker may he R.I.P. I was seriously worried about where the franchise might go. Could Vin and The Rock carry it. The answer is yes. Vin Diesel did the heavy lifting here by providing the layers of complex character that were once solely on Paul Walker. The Rock threw in his comedic notes along with Jason Statham. But over all the franchise seemed to carry on despite the loss of Pablo.
