In the summer of good guys gone bad guys, The Fast and the Furious Franchise’s latest entry brings us a very big question; why did Dominic Toretto abandon his “Family”? Overall I think The Fate of the Furious lands just below the middle of the pack for the franchise. It has some great stuff going for it but I think a lack of an adequate script and mediocre direction keeps it from soaring like the previous installments.

From a technical aspect, you’re going to have fun watching The Fate of the Furious, it doesn’t stray too far from the regular franchise. In fact, the film I most closely associate it to quality wise is Fast & Furious 6. So if you’re a fan of the series, I would definitely recommend you watch this one in theaters, it’s the only way to see it as the excitement will wear off with your home theater system (or laptops). If you’re not a big fan, this isn’t the one for you nor is this the place to start. I’d recommend watching Fast Five.
