The Fate of the Furious is action & adventure, it’s the eighth film in The Fast and the Furious series. Many actors from the previous films have returned, two newcomers to the series are, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren.
Vin Diesel, (Dom) finds himself under the influence of an evil woman Cipher, who brings him to the world of terrorism. He betrays all of those who are closest to him, forcing the crew to face trials that will test them as never before. Yep, Dom goes rogue, and it does make for an intriguing storyline.

The Bottom-Line? I’ve seen all eight of the Furious films and have enjoyed most of them. I love the adrenaline rush of the opening race in Havana, Cuba with the old-time 50s cars. Dom does some crazy backward driving that’s worth the price of admission. I saw it at the IMAX and would recommend the big screen. The quality of these films has enhanced over the years; you know what you’re in for when you buy a ticket, which is typically an enjoyable ride.
