I was watching furious 7 for about the 1000th time today, I love these movies they just get better in my opinion. But I read alot of comments about how the franchise is bolloks. Based on all the complaints I read the franchise's biggest flaw is realism. Spoilers!
In the 7th movie theres a scene where cars are dropped out of a plane and use car sized parachutes to land safely. This is one of the "unrealistic" scenes that people talk about. I dunno I you could actually pull that off in real life but I don't go to a movie to look for realism I go to be entertained. That's exactly what these movies do. I know they do unrealistic stuff but that's what makes the movie brilliant. Their stunts are bolloks but they make it look plausible and cool.
After 7 movies and the death of one of the stars alot of people (including me) would say that they should stop. However as alot of people know furious 8 has been confirmed with two other sequels confirmed after, making 10 movies in the franchise. I'm pleased with this announcement. It won't be the same without Paul Walker but that doesn't mean they'll be bad. With his brother confirmed to replace Paul I can't wait to see what they'll do next. After furious 10 they should definitely stop because 10 is a good number to stop on.
One of the best qualities of the franchise is its actors. In the last movie Jason Statham joined the series which I was buzzing for I knew he'd be excellent and I look forward to his return in f8.
"if I were to wrap this up tight with a bow whatever" I think the franchise is perfect for any action fan. Its got guns, girls and the most badass moments in movie history. If your looking for realism or flaws then this franchise won't be for you. Fast and Furious one of the best action franchises of the last 20 years.
