Now that Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and Brian (Paul Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) have retired from the game, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape, and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage, and to bring home the man who made them a family.Written by
While backstage at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Vin Diesel hinted in an interview that this movie would be set in New York City. He stated that "Furious 7 (2015) was for Paul and The Fate of the Furious (2017) will be from Paul". Before his tragic death, Paul Walker told Diesel that "Furious 8" was guaranteed to be made. Diesel reiterated the dedication in numerous other interviews while promoting this movie. This explains why the beginning of this movie opens with a street race, paying homage to the first two movies in the franchise, whose opening scenes contained street races involving Paul Walker's character.

Poltava is in Ukraine, not in Russia as Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) mentions in the movie. Yalta is in former Ukrainian territory of Crimea which was annexed by the Russian Federation on 18 March 2014. As of 2017, the United Nations still maps Crimea as belonging to Ukraine. See more »
We swap in parts from Fords... Plymouths and Cadillacs. My grandfather bought it in 1957. When he died, it passed to my father. Then my brother, and now me.
[in Spanish, to Letty]
Look at this. This is an engine from a boat.
Whatever it takes to keep it running

The 148-minute Director's Cut has the following additions:
In Cuba, there are extra lines by Raldo, especially when he tells that the car that is Dom's cousin is no longer his and reprimands Letty for interjecting. During Dom's race with Raldo, there's extra shots of Letty and Dom's cousin to emphasize they are keeping an eye on the race as well as Dom at the burning cockpit. One of Raldo's men takes a phone call.
At the bed, Letty asks Dom whether he has enough faith and would he ride for the world.
Roman calms Letty after she confronts Ramsey.
Dom finds it amusing for Cipher to watch everything from 30,000 feet. There's also an extra line by her describing him: "That engine. That open road. Being free."
In the prison block, Hobbs' sexual-reference line "So why don't you get your candy-ass back out there and toss some more salad, boy?" has been restored. When he and Deckard fight their way out, he stabs and inmate, throwing him over the railing before beating more of them.
The debriefing on Cipher and Dom is longer: Hobbs tells Tej that Nobody and Little Nobody are like a maze; Little Nobody says no one knows of Cipher except for one photo; Letty doesn't understand why Dom and Cipher work together; Roman brags his awesomeness for having Ramsey's program to track Cipher, he also backs down after Little Nobody is annoyed at him. Just before Dom and Cipher attack the base, Tej pulls out the live surveillance footage - Cipher snarky remark, "Surprise!"
Ramsey thanks Deckard for saving her. It makes Roman nervous that he called Tej over to talk about both of them.
Cipher tells Dom of another possible outcome from an attempted escape by him.
At the car warehouse, Hobbs is irritated by Deckard's jeep being British that he smashes a side mirror. Roman makes imaginary fly talk to deliberately mess Little Nobody.
Dom tells Magdalene that he can see in his little boy's eyes.
There's more lingering shots on Dom and Cipher when Rhodes executes Elena.
Extra line by Letty about Rhodes: "He must have been working with that bitch the whole time."
When Dom and Cipher talk about the submarine hijack plan, she summarizes Dom's urge for revenge. He then psychoanalyzes her.
Roman calls Tej a fake Barry White.
During the soccer match, Hobbs yells something explicit to the men who wanted him for the Berlin assignment. This pays off here when after he shouts again, his attackers were irritated. Tej fights a Russian.
As Roman is pursued by enemy jeeps he keeps swearing but warns his team about the jeeps.
Deckard kills a few more of Cipher's goons at the plane.
Extra line by Roman: "I'm not going back to the water!"
Dom humorously complains to Deckard of the baby glove that is British.
Dominic Torreto just went rogue - a well done sequel a bit underrated
The Fate of the Furious (2017) in my opinion is a well fast paced a well done sequel. I just got this film on Blu-ray and I just finished watching it what can I say? I enjoy watching this film I had a fun a lot, I love this film to death and I like it a lot. I think is my number one favorite in the series Fast Five (2011) is still my number two favorite film in the series but this one just become my favorite number 1 film. Since Paul Walker died in November 30, 2013 both of the characters Brian O'Conner and Mia Toretto retired and the seventh installment completed the story arcs for both of their characters.
I think Vin Diesel who took over the movie without Paul walker did a great job I also finished him watching in his early action movie xXx (2002) pretty good movie. Dwayne Johnson was far way better than he was in Furious Seven. He had much more to do than in here than he did in the previous film that was my biggest problem in the previous installment. He was only in the beginning of the film and on the end of the film in the final showdown the rest of that film he was absent but in this film he had much more to do. Jason Statham is back as Deckard Shaw and he had much more things to do then he did in the previous film. Charlize Theron as Cipher was outstanding as the bad guy I liked her performance. Michelle Rodriguez as hot chick mom was really great I love her performance in this movie. Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey from the previous film is also in here. I love performances from Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges and Tyrese Gibson they were great.
F. Gary Gray did not do a bad job directing this film I thought he was good. I think this movie is a good action movie and way better than the new Transformers films and Terminator films. I rather watch The Fast and the Furious films then those I mentioned. Chris Morgan was excellent writer in this movie.
In this movie Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the rest of the crew has been exonerated-the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage... and to bring home the man who made them a family.
Also the movie takes on icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea which are cars on the ice, that idea was from James Bond 007 Die Another Day but still the movie borrowed I have enjoyed this movie. Everyone in this movie did great I am so happy I have this film on Blu-ray.
I am not sure if hackers can hack into new cars and drive them during on the road with the computer I don't think that is impossible not with the technology was created in the decades, that's my opinion.
I wasn't happy that Charlize Theron's character escaped but I hope we will see her in the next installments. I hear there are 2 installments planed and the 10th will be last one in the series.
I don't think this movie is great or the best or better than Furious Seven I just think it is a good film.
I love that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham put their sides behind and start working together. I love the prison escape and love that Jason Statham saved Dominic's son on the plain. Deckard kill Han but he pay for it when he rescue Dom's son. I love the chemistry between Dom and Letty they are still married and together that's awesome.
Scott Eastwood is also in this and even tough he isn't that great he is enjoyable in this flick. I also love the poster and the cover on Blu-ray about this film it think it is excellent.
This film get's a 10/10 I have enjoyed this film a lot the submarine was awesome and I am glad that the crew save the world again.
