KEEPIN' IT REEL

Furious 7, Universal Pictures

Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for his comatose brother.

THE GOOD

Great job making Paul Walker’s posthumous scenes with brothers and stunt-doubles as stand-ins blend well. Awesome practical stunts, such as cars being dropped from planes. Finishes the series well with a fitting tribute to Paul Walker.

THE BAD

Deckard Shaw’s character is too unrealistic, popping up wherever the crew is and not killing anyone despite being well-trained. Important tech is left in the hands of a random, unimportant character.

FINAL RATING: ★★★★☆
