NEW ROADS AHEAD.
The old team is rounded up one more time for a top secret government mission, but they’re all seemingly betrayed by Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) who’s working with a new dangerous foe (Charlize Theron)… The eighth chapter in the Fast and the Furious saga has a razor-thin story for a movie as bloated as this, but plenty of outlandish action to satisfy die-hard fans, including a silly, icy showdown in Russia involving a nuclear sub. Combines street racing with spy-movie trappings and a lot of comedy; unwieldy, but boosted by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
