Movie Review: 'Fate of the Furious'

To read our official Red and Black preview of "The Fate and the Furious," check out our earlier article here.

I recently had a chance to see “The Fate of the Furious,” which was released on April 14th. As a fan of the series, I was excited to see the film, and it did not disappoint me. In fact, I thought it was one of the best movies in the series.

The main character in the film is again Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel. In this film he is forced to make a tough decision which may cause him to betray his crew, or "family."

The action scenes were the most exciting part to me. The filmmakers have really stepped up the special effects over the course of the films in the franchise, and the stunts are also more thrilling than before.

However, in every "Fast and the Furious" film, they have tried to make it not only about the action. You have to have humor in every film for it to be interesting, and the directors of the series have tried to do that more and more with each film. Hobbs, played by the Rock, was the funniest character and had some great lines.

The acting has also improved with each film. For a couple of seconds, I felt like I was in the movie. I also enjoyed the costumes. My personal favorite costume was Vin Diesel‘s when he was on a mission to get a briefcase.
