Now that Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and Brian (Paul Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape, and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage, and to bring home the man who made them a family.Written by
While backstage at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Vin Diesel hinted in an interview that this movie would be set in New York City. He stated that "Furious 7 (2015) was for Paul and The Fate of the Furious (2017) will be from Paul". Before his tragic death, Paul Walker told Diesel that "Furious 8" was guaranteed to be made. Diesel reiterated the dedication in numerous other interviews while promoting this movie. This explains why the beginning of this movie opens with a street race, paying homage to the first two movies in the franchise, whose opening scenes contained street races involving Paul Walker's character.

We swap in parts from Fords... Plymouths and Cadillacs. My grandfather bought it in 1957. When he died, it passed to my father. Then my brother, and now me.

The 148-minute Director's Cut has the following additions:
In Cuba, there are extra lines by Raldo, especially when he tells that the car that is Dom's cousin is no longer his and reprimands Letty for interjecting. During Dom's race with Raldo, there's extra shots of Letty and Dom's cousin to emphasize they are keeping an eye on the race as well as Dom at the burning cockpit. One of Raldo's men takes a phone call.
At the bed, Letty asks Dom whether he has enough faith and would he ride for the world.
Roman calms Letty after she confronts Ramsey.
Dom finds it amusing for Cipher to watch everything from 30,000 feet. There's also an extra line by her describing him: "That engine. That open road. Being free."
In the prison block, Hobbs' sexual-reference line "So why don't you get your candy-ass back out there and toss some more salad, boy?" has been restored. When he and Deckard fight their way out, he stabs and inmate, throwing him over the railing before beating more of them.
The debriefing on Cipher and Dom is longer: Hobbs tells Tej that Nobody and Little Nobody are like a maze; Little Nobody says no one knows of Cipher except for one photo; Letty doesn't understand why Dom and Cipher work together; Roman brags his awesomeness for having Ramsey's program to track Cipher, he also backs down after Little Nobody is annoyed at him. Just before Dom and Cipher attack the base, Tej pulls out the live surveillance footage - Cipher snarky remark, "Surprise!"
Ramsey thanks Deckard for saving her. It makes Roman nervous that he called Tej over to talk about both of them.
Cipher tells Dom of another possible outcome from an attempted escape by him.
At the car warehouse, Hobbs is irritated by Deckard's jeep being British that he smashes a side mirror. Roman makes imaginary fly talk to deliberately mess Little Nobody.
Dom tells Magdalene that he can see in his little boy's eyes.
There's more lingering shots on Dom and Cipher when Rhodes executes Elena.
Extra line by Letty about Rhodes: "He must have been working with that bitch the whole time."
When Dom and Cipher talk about the submarine hijack plan, she summarizes Dom's urge for revenge. He then psychoanalyzes her.
Roman calls Tej a fake Barry White.
During the soccer match, Hobbs yells something explicit to the men who wanted him for the Berlin assignment. This pays off here when after he shouts again, his attackers were irritated. Tej fights a Russian.
As Roman is pursued by enemy jeeps he keeps swearing but warns his team about the jeeps.
Deckard kills a few more of Cipher's goons at the plane.
Extra line by Roman: "I'm not going back to the water!"
Dom humorously complains to Deckard of the baby glove that is British.
Now, "Fast and Furious" is more like a Brazilian soap opera, where everyone knows each other and addresses names. After the death of Paul Walker, many, and I among them, thought that the film would be the last, but not the same. Producers and creators do not want to kill a chicken carrying golden eggs. Each film of the franchise brought a good cash and there was no rating below the seven. I watched this movie and I'm ready to share my impressions of the view and thoughts on this matter.
The plot of this film will lead our heroes to the most ill-fated places in the world: from Havana to New York and this time it is necessary to prevent the capture of the world from the charming and pretty hackershee with the pretentiousness and intelligence of the Joker, who talks about world domination and total control with philosophy on the verge of insanity. The action goes on increasing and reaches the boiling point at the time of betrayal, the team faced the most dangerous enemy, with its ideological leader. Not everyone can immediately understand what Dominic saw in that smartphone that immediately stepped on the dark side of the force. The main tie for the drama of the film is family values, which I welcome in any form and let the plot be compared with a soap opera, this is a new generation opera with steep wheelbarrows, well-chased pursuits with dashing tricks, bright and colorful explosions.
A separate article should mention the humor of the picture, built on the recklessness and absurdity of some decisions like rain in fifty cars from the window of a shopping center or "Niva" in the Atlantic Ocean with a submarine. While you are in the cinema your mind does not want to think about the logic and unreality of some tricks and phenomena, perceiving everything as a popcorn blockbuster with an element of situational humor and absurdity, especially well in the verbal skirmishes of Dékard Shaw and Luke Hobbs, in prison they are each other simply they continue to complain and they are no better, but it's so ridiculous! The main humorist was Roman Pierce. As before, he always sticks in curious situations, not without a caustic commentary and in itself he is a good comedian.
It seems to me in my new capacity as the franchise organically exists and is fully capable to please the eye, if it does not think about the story logic and violations of the laws of physics, the eyes and the brain in such films have a rest, but here it seems to me the strongest concentration of the humor in the whole franchise and this share of self-irony and banter smoothes not all but many roughness, which for me personally is a good plus. The picture does not stint on the visual beauty and assembly, especially would like to mention that our localizers even translated the names of cities visited by the characters, and that's the solution when mounting the sea white reads "Havana. Cuba "seems to me a good decision, plus I will note the camera and composer work. Why do I evaluate them in a single segment, because often when we see a beautiful landscape picture, or just kinds of beautiful female beauty always comes music and some tunes well as memorable, and the camera in the moment of the explosion, chases and fights pulls out a general plan good angles , helping us to see in detail the environment or just enjoy the action.
Actor's work is not bad. Vin Diesel throughout his career earned three images with which he is associated: Dominique Toretto, Xander Cage and Riddick. Recently released a third film about the agent "Three X" and something he did not particularly like, the top five. Here he plays as if this is what he is, at the same time is the producer of the franchise from the fourth film. In our dubbing he speaks with the voice of Sergei Chonishvili, a strong dubbing actor with many roles in our cinema. Dwayne Johnson, once known as "Rock", wins Hobbs well. In our dubbing he speaks with the voice of Yuri Brezhnev, I do not often hear him, but his timbre is pleasant. Last which sounded: "The Secret Life of Pets", "trolls", "Straight Outta Compton" (director of nominal this film set the eighth "Fast and the Furious"), Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson as always good, their voices sound Alexander Noskov and Peter "Glanz" Ivashchenko, voices and types of actors, it seems to me, coincided.
As a result: Watch only in the cinema, because the spectacle is perceived well in the big hall and looking not particularly analyze the plot and enjoy jokes. The plot completely fits into the coordinates of "afterburner dramaturgy", and the visual emphasizes virtues, humor covers some shortcomings. I liked the movie, I'll appreciate it at eight points, take it as a popcorn blockbuster and enjoy it. All good and pleasant viewing!
