The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Probably the worst in the series since Fast & Furious but, as ever, the characters and the bloated ensemble manage to make it overwhelmingly entertaining. It’s also the first FF in a long time to feature action sequences that left me kind of numbed and indifferent. It severely lacks the physical crunch of the last few instalments and Statham’s promotion to BFF undoes a lot of Furious 7‘s groundwork. Then again his bromance with The Rock’s Hobbs is one of the film’s undeniable delights. Also, can Diesel and Johnson please kiss and make-up? Their lack of screen-time together and fudged chemistry here could be the virus that eventually tears this family-fuelled franchise apart. Let’s face it, nobody wants that.
