But the silly spectacle of "The Fate of the Furious" - with cars speeding about and Diesel and Johnson seemingly working on two different movies - makes it fairly irresistible. It's silly, sure, but thanks to dependable, honest performances from all the players and a bunch of well-executed and set up action sequences, Fast and Furious 8 is pretty darn watchable. It's like "The Fast and the Furious" franchise took all the best parts of "Crank" - in which Statham plays a professional hit man - and carried them over to the "Fast" movies. It even left the characters on a fitting note that could've acted as a grand finale. We can't wait to read your The Fate of the Furious reviews below! The eighth film in the franchise, which is also the first chapter of the final trilogy, starts off with a spectacular auto race through the streets of Havana. Now the series has ditched the heist element to become a spy caper of sorts. Nobody (Kurt Russell), who promises to assist in stopping Deckard if Dom can help him obtain the God's Eye, a computer program that tracks people down. After a vehicle race between Dom and Cuban tough guy Raldo (an appealing Celestino Cornielle) ends with Dom crossing the finish line in reverse in a auto that is on fire, DSS agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), whose wardrobe is entirely sleeveless, takes a break from coaching his young daughter's soccer team. The story also gives Diesel, who seems to think of himself as the Laurence Olivier of shaved-head muscleman actors, opportunities to trade dialogue with two Oscar winners, Theron and Helen Mirren (in a glorified cameo). So formidable are Dom's skills that characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Stathan - sworn enemies - must work together.

Through some poor and predictable storyline, the baby only had a temporary name as Elena believed a father should name his baby. Johnson walked the carpet at the beginning of the premiere, while Diesel arrived later. We then see Brian and Mia (Jordana Brewster) playing with their son at a beach while Letty, Dom and other look on. Couldn't he have clued them in before going rogue? Nothing in the Fast and Furious verse gets reinvented. You're supposed to check out your sense of logic at the door. And, as loyal fans know, Walker's legacy is never far from the franchise. All the while, director F. Gary Gray injects every shot with kinetic energy. But if you thought that the series' tribute to Walker would end there, you were sorely mistaken. Accelerating speed and furiousness is pretty much a given when you've had eight tries at this.
