Review:

I’ve seen all the Fast and Furious movies, but I’m not really a fan of them. They’re merely okay at their best, in my opinion. Furious 7 was no different.

The best part was when the Rock flexed and his cast burst off, that was pretty awesome. The rest of the movie was just eh. The action scenes are poorly shot so they could be good but you’d never know. There were also scenes where the camera was rotated and I assume I was supposed to think that was cool but it was just stupid. Since I’m not emotionally invested in any of the characters the parts where they were all being introspective were just boring. Which is just about my view of the whole movie.

I am excited about the idea of a Rock+ Jason Statham spin off.

2/5

Plot:

Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all.

Review:

So I’ve watched, and enjoyed, the Expendables movies, good acting is not a requirement for me to like a movie. That being said this movie was seriously lacking in the acting department. Also holy shit at that move with Vin Diesel jumping out of the car, that was ridiculous, and not in a good way.

I am not the demographic these movies are trying to reach, maybe that’s why I’ve never really liked them. I watch each of them (except Tokyo Drift), eventually, but I never really like them. At their peaks they’re mildly entertaining.

I like cheesy movies, but these just don’t crank my tractor.

2.75/5
