Fate of the Furious 8

Postby Prey » Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:18 am

Anyone seen this yet then? Currently sat at 64% on RT...

The Fate of the Furious is the start of a new trilogy, according to Vin Diesel. A trilogy that continues the ridiculous path taken by Fast 5, 6, and 7, but bringing in more spy elements and pushing aside the heist part of the series. Much like Furious 7, this film finds the team of Dom, Letty, Hobbs, Roman, Tej, and Ramsey once again being targeted by someone. Last time, the team managed to take down Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham, who was out for revenge. Now, a tech-hacker-terrorist played by Charlize Theron. Let me say this upfront, most of this movie doesn't make any logical sense. In fact, this movie probably makes less sense than all of the other previous films combined.

Also on a $250 million budget the movie has grossed $240 million of that back on its very first day so it looks like these movies are here to stay.

I nearly cried at the end of the last one. Not because of that whole Paul Walker thing, but that I'd wasted over 2 hours of my life sitting through it. Fucking thing went on forever!

The previous film ended up making a little over $1 billion. They do really well in China. Critics are always going to hate it but apparently it's pretty good brain-out action film.

Seen a bit of one of them once. Really not my thing at all. The reek of horse shit took ages to get out of the living room.

Fast & Furious 8 is now officially the biggest opening weekend box office, ever...

The Fate of the Furious made $532.5 million in its first weekend.
:shock:

That's genuinely insane numbers right there for what many are calling the weakest movie of the series.

For a film with so much shit happening that was real boring! Needed about 30mins shaved off its runtime.

I really like the Fast and Furious series, but I've had my expectations tempered a bit for this eight film. Will go see it in my week off next week.

This has made just shy of $1 Billion in just two weeks. Talk of both a Hobbs spin off and one for Statham's character also.

I think the talk is for a Hobbs and Shaw spin-off together.

I went to see this last week and I thought it was OK. It suffered from having a poor villain and the reason for Dom changing sides was rather trite however the action was still cool though so I mainly enjoyed it.
