Our Score
Has Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) really betrayed those closest to him by joining forces with cyber-terrorist Cipher (Charlize Theron) to cause nuclear anarchy? She has some hold on him and it's up to his crack team of friends (Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, etc) to foil her sinister plans in this utterly ludicrous but sublimely thrilling episode of the motor mayhem franchise. A nonstop blast of kinetic energy from the opening car race in Cuba to the astonishing Arctic action finish, everything rip-roaring this now vintage series is famous for is present and correct in a captivating Bond-style plot finessed with turbo-driven spectacle and tongue-in-cheek smarts. The giant wrecking ball cutting a swathe through a fleet of cars and the auto-avalanche chase through Manhattan are worth the price of admission alone, with Johnson and Jason Statham's anti-bromance the stuff of classic buddy movies.

Summary

Street racing criminal Dominic Toretto is drawn out of retirement by an encounter with a ruthless cyberterrorist, who recruits him for an international criminal scheme. As he sets out to steal the technology she needs to unleash chaos on the world, he is drawn into conflict with both old enemies and his former gang. Action adventure sequel, starring Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell.
