There was a double showing of Fast and Furious 6 and 7 (review for 7 to come next) at the cinema. Although I missed the opening credits, I did manage to see all of the rest of the movie.
Having only watched the first and fourth (and fifth ages ago) movies in this franchise, I only knew how some of the characters were connected to each other. At the same time, I felt that the actors did such a fantastic job, I didn’t need to know the events of the previous movies to see how much the characters cared for each other.
It was pretty cool to see Letty in this movie, even though she clearly didn’t recognise Dom… or anyone else. I was happy to see that Dom still cared for Letty and it was good to see their interactions with each other.
I did like seeing Luke Evans in this film. Even though he was playing the bad guy, I thought it was good to see him in a different type of movie to the ones I’ve usually seen him in. I like him as an actor… but I really didn’t like his character in this movie. Means he did a good job.
There were a lot of moments in this film that made me (and a lot of the viewers in the cinema) laugh out loud. I especially liked the banter between Roman and Tej. They seemed to have a brotherly teasing each other thing going on.
I think one of my favourite parts of this film was the brotherly relationship between Dom and Brian. I think Brian might be one of my favourite characters in the franchise. Although they’re all complicated and likable, I especially felt that Brian hit a lot of the qualities of characters who I like the best. I also really liked the relationship between Han and Gisele.
There were some pretty cool stunts in this movie and I especially liked this ending. There was one thing in particular I did see coming, but it wasn’t terribly obvious and the movie succeeded in keeping my attention throughout. Although I haven’t seen all of the other movies, my sister told me that it does tie in with the Tokyo movie especially.
