Vin Diesel was not first choice for Fast & Furious tough guy

It was highly rumored that he was referring to Vin, which was recently reinforced by the actors being kept apart while promoting the movie.

Ever since "Fast Five" came out, the franchise shifted more into a vigilante outlaw group that goes through great length to stop drug lords or to save the world. If you've never really cared for this series, The Fate of the Furious isn't going to convert you. After The Fate of the Furious, I still don't feel the imperative to check out volumes 1 through 7.

But the cast and crew found creative ways to complete the project, and made a decision to go one step further.

If you're muttering, "Ho'dup.I'm going to need a little more than the gist of this".

I am always in awe of the amount of work that must go into shooting these vehicle chase scenes. The Fate of the Furious proceeds with relentless ferocity: flashes of destruction involving million dollar cars, tanks on ice, and the Rock just kicking a torpedo to the side. The story is just an excuse to partake in a slew of ridiculous action sequences, but the filmmakers manage to up the ante with each new set piece. In fact, everyone should go see it this weekend.

To me, Jason Statham stole the movie. He delivers what you expect from one of these movies - and by now, you know what to expect from a Fast and Furious movie.

EPL: Manchester United defeat Chelsea 2-0, revive fight for title
The only top-six side the Blues have to face is Everton, while Tottenham will take on both Arsenal and Manchester United . They showed more desire, more ambition, more motivation to win. "In this case, the fault is the coach.

After breaking into the hospital where his brother Owen is being held, Deckard finds himself in a fight with Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). They definitely upped the RPMs when it comes to trying to add comedy in this installment.

And that's still what you get eight films later. Not surprisingly, Dom ends up having to play along with the villains, especially after they show they mean business by killing Elena. Dom's victory was short lived as he runs into a mysterious woman named Cipher (Charlize Theron). Nobody (Kurt Russell) assembles an elite team.

Now that I've seen it I'm so disappointed.

But all I could think when I was watching this movie is how bored I was of watching him and his storyline. It also has its fair share of plot holes, but once again, I know the plot and acting take second place to the cars and the action. While the cars are cool and the chase scenes are spectacular, they aren't enough to keep the viewers' least they couldn't keep mine. On top of the fun, there are some genuinely touching, cute moments as well. Fate of the Furious entertains absolutely, without mercy. It is definitely not the best movie in the franchise, but for the most part, it does its job and is satisfying.
