“Bhaiya! Yeh Cloromint kyon khaate hai?” You don’t ask that question in India as much as you shouldn’t ask “Is it worth it?”, “Shall I watch Furious 7?” Well, the most notable aspect of this film is, it marks the last feature of The Great Paul Walker and yes, it’s a must watch for the F & F series lovers and action enthusiasts. The bewildering and thought provoking idea is that, there is literally nothing new except for the few things like drones firing missiles, better visual effects and better actions sequences and still it enchants the viewer.
You can watch the trailer right here:
James Wan has created the perfect blend pairing with Chris Morgan for the audience to savor. His virtuoso is impetus in the film with lack of depth in the story. He might have created the dandiest film in the F & F series.
No one steps in theater with much expectations from the story from Fast and Furious movies. In fact, not having much scope in the storyline is what makes the screenplay more salient. A few eye catching scenes is all that it takes to glue audience to their seats. The most intriguing part was when Roman and Tej are sitting on a beach and Ramsey gets out of the water, flaunting her body in a bikini, conjuring the oomph effect and Roman calls dibs on her. Though, it’d have be a real transition if the story was profoundly crafted.
Dominic Toretto, the ‘Alpha’, with his voice having special base, takes you on a fun ride and you just wish it was never over. This character was built only for Vin Diesel with his serene and tranquil complexion.
Paul Walker’s acting simply cannot be judged. As his acting skills precedes his reputation and he is (was) the best in business. Secondly, CGI image and body doubles were used after his demise. Albeit, one could congratulate the efforts of technical staff.
Jason Statham really brings out true emotions of seeking revenge on Dom and his team. He plays a robust and spellbinding villain and a pivotal role in the film.
Dwayne Johnson has created the most invigorating image in the recent years of American Cinema. This wasn’t the sharpest arrow in his quiver, but it certainly gets the work done. It’s difficult to identify whether it’s Dwayne Johnson or Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he picks up the machine gun and starts shooting the helicopter.
Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Kurt Russell in their small roles give their best. But, Kurt’s performance protrudes among all. Nathalie Emmanuel is stunning in her character and brings out her best play from Game Of Thrones.
A noteworthy and captivating aspect was magnificent camera work. Cinematography was of the top notch keeping things exciting with unimaginable angles used during fight scenes. Organization and choreography of stunts felt almost out of the world. It was like every extraordinary action movie combined into one.
The Final Word:
Furious 7 has undergone many changes in turbulent times and still it soars up as a spellbinding commercial release. This is an astute endeavor by James Wan considering the weakness of the plot. This opulent and extravagant film is the last memory of the great actor Paul Walker and I invite you cling on to this opportunity and enjoy the show. The story digresses and there is a hiatus, but clicks the right emotions, so I am going with 3.5/5. I assure you, the ride’s not bumpy.
