When Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) goes rogue you know there is going to be trouble, but the good kind of trouble, meaning, cars flying around, explosions, secret weapons and much more.

Welcome to the fastest ride ever, The Fate of the Furious, the 8th edition of the Fast and Furious franchise. This Billion Dollar franchise looks like it will just never go out of fashion, after all when have cars gone out of fashion?

The Fate of the Furious brings in the past and future into play. Dominic Toretto is on his honeymoon with Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) in Cuba when Cipher (Charlize Theron) runs into him and blackmails him. Dominic turns rogue and the entire team has to reassemble, including Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris), Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) with Frank Petty (Kurt Russell) and introducing to the team Eric Resiner also know as Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood).

Soon the fast cars come in and world travel starts as the team is trying to find out Dom and why he is what he is up to. A twist locks in through the Shaw brothers, when Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) has to join the FF8 crew to help find Dom. Helen Mirren makes an appearance as his mother and Luke Edwards joins in the action at the end as the brother Owen Shaw from Fast & Furious 6.

Thus, the entire film is about reunions and disappearances but of course the fast rides, death-defying stunts and they go big this time with a submarine. The action does not fail you, the story does not disappoint you and the team does not let you down.

Becoming the first major blockbuster film to be shot in Cuba, the visuals from start to end are stunning. Charlize is an excellent choice for a female in a negative role and you have to watch the film to find out who completes the family and who bids adieu.

The Fate of the Furious lies in your hands, love it, they will keep on making more.
