If you haven’t seen Furious 7 then I must say the following is a spoiler so stop now…

Ready?

At the end of Furious 7, Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw is locked away by Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs in a maximum security cell somewhere in what looks like the center of the Earth, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of him. Statham tells Access Hollywood he’s ready for another go in Furious 8.

“We’re already talking about doing another one, Part 8,” says Statham. “I’m a newcomer! I just got invited to the party in this last one so it’s nice to know I’m gonna be doing another… They’ve always got something good up their sleeve, and I don’t want to be the one who spoils the plot lines but there is some great stuff I already know about.”

Vin Diesel at this year’s CinemaCon that an eight film was in the making and that it would likely be set in New York City.  Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are also expected to return, along with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black.

Furious 8 arrives in theaters on April 14, 2017

Michael’s Review: ‘Furious 7’

Furious7onelastposterbig

Nevermind the overall story, Furious 7 is a wonderful tribute to the late Paul Walker. The actor, who died in a single car accident during a break in filming, left a huge void for the cast and crew, who scrambled to piece together their lives and reinvent the film so it would not only continue the franchise, but also honor Walker’s legacy following the tragedy.After thisa lot of the member started  to be more careful at driven and even a few talked about the Blackbox my car products, cameras for the dash of your car for more safety and to avoid any misunderstanding in the future to have it all in a recording.

Director James Wan (Insidious) takes the helm for this ride as the the crew take on their toughest opponent yet. Buckle up, this fast paced, action packed franchise shows no signs of slowing down.

The events of Fast & Furious 6 have begun to haunt the crew as the older brother of Owen Shaw has come to claim vengeance. Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British secret service assassin who is more dangerous than anyone the crew has faced in their lives, is on a mission to take down those who almost killed his brother. After Shaw puts Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in the hospital, Dom (Vin Diesel) realizes that his family is in danger. A simultaneous attack on his home and the death of long time friend Han, heightens the situation and Dom decides to take matters into his own hands before anyone else dies.

Frank Petty (Kurt Russell), a covert ops director, enlists Dom to complete a mission to find a hacker named Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) and bring back a high tech surveillance program called the God’s Eye, but getting Ramsey back isn’t an easy task. Kidnapped by a known terrorist named Jakande (Djimon Hounsou), things gets complicated and Dom must rely on his crew to help complete the mission as only they can.  With Shaw in toe and the prize in sight, the mission will take the crew across the globe in the race of their lives. Brian (Paul Walker), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), and Tej (Ludacris) set off for one last ride, to take down the bad guys and protect the lives of those they love.

Director James Wan should be commended for finding a way to complete this film in the face of such adversity. Paul Walker was the number two most important character in this franchise and his loss will be a huge one moving forward, but the way that Diesel, Wan and the studio found a way to complete his scenes and send the actor out on a high note is tremendous. Cast and crew pulled this film together after the tragedy and you can tell the passion they felt to honor the fallen actor with the best film they could.  Like the other films in the Fast and the Furious franchise, you need to turn your brain off before entering the theater, but this film is an action packed thrill ride from beginning to end that won’t disappoint. Furious 7 may not win an Oscar, as Diesel suggests it should, but it sure is a blast to watch.
