Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the rest of the crew has been exonerated-the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can't seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage... and to bring home the man who made them a family.

The heat-seeking missile launched at Dom would've hit Dom in a matter of seconds. The slowest heat-seeking missile, has a speed of Mach 2.5 which is a bit faster than a bullet. There is no way a car running on ice at approx 80 mph would've outrun a missile coming at him at 1,900 mph. See more »
We swap in parts from Fords... Plymouths and Cadillacs. My grandfather bought it in 1957. When he died, it passed to my father. Then my brother, and now me.

Look at this. This is an engine from a boat.

It puts the Carsploitation genre on another level. I mean, just when you thought The Fast and The Furious did everything with a car in the last seven movies, they do something bigger and better.
If you've seen Furious 6 (Which you should) when Tej (Played by Ludicrous) was like "hey guys, they have a tank". He thought that was a big deal, that the bad guys are riding around in a tank. Now two Furiouses later, he has a tank, but the enemy now has a submarine! And it was bad ass!! ridiculously bad ass!!! it's amazing how these movies raise the level of ridiculous and somehow not come across real stupid. I mean, they had Dwayne Johnson acting like he was literally made out of rock, with the feats of strength he pulled off. From tossing two bad guys into six with ease, to kicking missiles out the way, and no matter how stupid it got, I could not help but to love The Rock while he's doing it (But you know, it's The People's movie Star).
But I have to be honest, if you are a die-hard Fast and Furious fan (I don't know if this name is official but I like to call myself a Furiouso). It's not the best of the 8. Fast Five, Fast Six, and Furious Seven all seemed to go up in quality as the action got bigger on the budget getting bigger, but with F8, it's still a great flick, but the quality is not progressing.
Mostly with the character development. I felt other movies in the series allowed everyone in the cast their moment to shine, but the ensemble here is now far too big with too many super stars like Vin, and the Rock and Jason Statham and brand new Charlize Theron as an incredible villain. This leaves most of the other cast under used, like Tyrese Gibson who was funny, but it was all one liner after one liner without Roman Pearce doing anything.
Still, it's one of the best blockbusters of the year. It has all the bells and whistles needed to keep you cheering in your seat as you watch all the glorious action unfold.
Literally The Fast and The Furious is becoming like Avengers on Wheels.
