Film Review: F8

Well, we have the other 7 so it made sense to buy Fast and Furious 8 for Hubby’s birthday.
I like Vin Diesel. He’s not exactly what I’d call handsome or oozes sex appeal for me, but there is ‘something’ that attracts me to any film he’s in.

This time around, Dom goes rogue, ditching his family and joining leagues with the bad guys, or in this case Girl, played by an excellent bitch in Charlize Theron.
It is up to his Team to hunt him down.

This is a good caper, with the old crew (except Paul Walker of course, though there is a  mention of Brian and Mia) and a few familiar faces from previous outings providing ‘pissing contests’ for light relief between two hothead tough guys. The fight scene in the jailbreak is brilliant.

Great locations where we shift from the theft of EMP weaponry to the launch codes for nuclear warheads and hijacking a submarine, computer hacking wizardry which is all way over my head, fantastic car races (it’ll make you think twice about having a driverless car), plenty of action, humour and loads of things being blown up all over the place.

All terribly OTT of course, but great fun.
A well deserved

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I thoroughly enjoy these movies (they’re absurd, but fun!). We still haven’t seen the latest one, though.
