The highly anticipated film ‘Furious 7’ speeds into theaters

Marcus Castro, Reporter

“The Fast and the Furious” movie series has once again made an instant hit.

“Furious 7” is a film that is the most recent in the timeline of the movie series. The way this film tied in the third movie in the series, “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift,” was perfect.

This film is about a crew of old street racers and heisting pros. Right when the crew thought they were finally done with a life full of insane action, they get side busted by Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham. Deckard is the older and more ruthless brother of Owen Shaw, played by Luke Evans, from the “Fast and Furious 6.”

When the crew, consisting of Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Tej (Ludacris), and Roman (Tyrese Gibson), realize they are being hunted, after their friend Han (Sung Kang) was killed by Deckard, they know that they have to fight back.

The crew needs help with finding the highly skilled assassin Deckard, and it’s help they got. Doing a favor for Mr. Nobody, played by Kurt Russell, in return for his help was the only way of finding Deckard. So the crew once again gathers some fast cars and other essential equipment to take on the task at hand.

The stunts in the film were great. It was awesome to watch scenes packed full of unrealistic stunts that had me biting my fingernails out of nervousness. The intensity level of the stunts was much greater than previous movies in the series.

I was looking forward to the inevitable fighting scenes that the series in known for. When the scenes came on screen, I was on the edge of my seat and not disappointed.

The acting and filming was once again outstanding. I believed every bit of emotion portrayed by the characters.

One of my favorite parts of the movie was the scene dedicated to the deceased star Paul Walker. It was hard to fight back the tears, as the scene was truly a beautiful goodbye to Walker.

Overall, the movie was extremely good. It has become one of my all-time favorites, and I suggest that everyone watches it as soon as possible.
