If you love cars, The Fate of the Furious 2017 is one of the most exciting movies you’ll ever watch. And one thing that you can count on is that the latest instalment in the franchise will be bigger and better than the last. And this movie didn’t disappoint us because it was action-packed from start to finish. The importance of family is a running theme in this series, and so when it starts with Dominic Toretto betraying his team to work with a villain called Cipher, played by Charlize Theron, viewers were thrown off balance. Toretto’s crew can’t believe he’s turned his back on them and they’re compelled to work against him if only to bring back to their fold.
The series gets better due to the inclusion of new characters like Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, and Kurt Russell. The popularity of this movie series is definitely down to the use of cars in ridiculous situations. In the Fast and the Furious 7, they dropped cars from a plane in one of the most stunning movie scenes you’ll ever see. I mean, who does that? And you can be sure that in every instalment, there will be car races, high-speed chases, and cars and building exploding all over the place.
Ludicrous Car Scenes
But the Fate of the Furious 8 took things to the extreme by dropping cars from cranes and building. The number of cars dropped from the building is staggering and only adds to the fascination with this series. And they didn’t need a garage door opener because these cars were falling from windows onto the street below. We also had mass hacking of vehicles with their onboard computers being used to drive them. It led to yet another crazy scene in which hundreds of cars are used to create a diversion while the good guys escaped.
Destruction of Property
The amount of car carnage in the movie is astonishing, and it would be interesting to find out if the film franchise has car insurance. According to informed sources, the Fate of the Furious 8 had a budget of $250 million. Before the Fate of the Furious 8, the estimated cost of car and property damage caused throughout the Fast and the Furious movies would be half a billion dollars in real life. And it is such a casual attitude towards loss and destruction of property that keeps the viewers hooked and coming back for more.
Car Lovers Heaven
This movie franchise appeals to car lovers, and they have used every supercar to thrill petrol heads. Dominic Toretto drives a Dodge Charger while his wife Letty drives a Rally Fighter. Roman being the flashy guy that he is, drives a Lamborghini while his best friend Tej Parker drove a Ripsaw during a thrilling car chase over snow. The Rock being a hunk of a man gets to drive an Ice Ram while his nemesis Deckard Shaw drives a Jaguar F-Type Coupe. You can expect plenty of car action when you watch this movie, and there are rumors that the next instalment will take us to outer space.
