I would like to start the review stating that “Fast & Furious 7” is a beautiful tribute to the late star Paul Walker. I actually had tears roll down my chin as the movie ended with the song “See you again”. The movie has everything. It has rib tickling funny scenes from Tyrese Gibson’s character, mouth shutting dialogues from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, stunts that would make you sit on the edge of your seats and this goes without saying, jaw dropping action scenes by virtually everyone in the movie. In one scene Dwayne actually ‘Rock Bottomed’ Jason Statham.
I will try to refrain myself from letting out any spoilers (Sorry for the ‘Rock Bottom’ spoiler above though!). The movie has everything that you would expect it should have and everything that you never thought that any movie could have! I had seen all of the trailers a minimum of 50 times each before I went for the movie, and the movie still managed to make me feel as if I was watching for the first time! I even had the dialogues by hearted from the trailers, for instance Dwayne’s “Daddy’s gotta go to work”, Tyrese’s “Can somebody just walk me through what we’re supposed to do” and Diesel’s “I don’t have friends… I got family”, but when these were said in the movie, they had so much more impact to them.
The stunts that have been performed in the movie are just stupendous, even though they defy all the laws of Newton! For instance the one where the FnF crew jump off of a plane while sitting in their cars, following which there is another amazing heart stopping stunt where Paul Walker jumps off a falling bus towards Michelle’s car which she drifts to the edge of the cliff to catch Paul!
For me personally, the movie had a huge sentimental attachment, alongside all of the stunts and action and emotions that were flowing through the movie. All for the one without whom the franchise might not have been what it is today… “Paul Walker”. The movie without a doubt would have been way better had things been otherwise, but following the unfortunate tragedy, I would say that there could not have been a better way for the movie to end and have a curtain call for the character ‘Brain O’ Conner’. And hats off to Paul’s brothers Cody Walker and Caleb Walker who helped filling in Paul’s shoes to finish a few bits of scenes that were yet to be shot by Paul.
“See You Again”
It’s a beautiful song dedicated to the late Paul Walker.
The movie is most definitely set to break loads of box office records. It has already broken the pre booking record set by the second installment of ‘Captain America’ last year (2014).
My rating : ***** (5 Stars)
Hope you all enjoy/ed it just as much!
God Bless Paul Walker!
