As if answering moviegoers who left Furious 7
asking, "How could they possibly top that?!
" the action is escalated once again in Fate
, as dumb as it is cool, as ridiculous as it is brilliant. Dwayne Johnson said they shot a "'holy sh*t' iconic prison breakout
," and he was not lying. (The Rock stabs a dude in the heart while Jason Statham does parkour.) A mob of "zombie" cars on auto-drive gives new meaning to hellish traffic. When Fate of the Furious
eventually has the team racing a nuclear submarine across Russia and the stakes have escalated to Dom & Co. stopping World War 3 and saving the literal world, you may wonder, How did we get here?
Who cares. Buckle up and enjoy the f**king ride.
