Furious 7 starts off with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) vowing revenge to his brother Owen (Luke Evans) and setting off to eliminate Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family. Shaw starts with a brutal battle on Hobbs (The Rock) that leaves Hobbs laying in a hospital bed for most of the film. Shaw then blows up Toretto’s house and kills one of his crew.
Shaw tracks down Dom and nearly kills him, but a secret agent known as Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) saves him and offers him and his team a mission to save a hacker, Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel). Doing so Toretto and his team will gain access to God’s Eye, a device that can track anyone on the planet. They find Shaw quickly but he turns it around and ambushes them and gains God’s Eye.
Outmaneuvered, outgunned, Toretto and the gang must rely on their driving abilities to survive almost certain death.
The last flick had action moments that were hard to believe, but this one blows them all away with many car crashes that do not result in deaths, cars breaking through several buildings, and tons of explosions that are just damaging. As long as you do not have a problem forgetting about reality there’s a lot of awesome entertainment.
Fans of Paul Walker will enjoy the sad tribute.
