As he leaves the local hospital he informs the staff or what’s left of them to take care of his brother Owen (Luke Evans). This point on Deckard has one thought which is revenge towards the people that harmed his brother.
On an open road Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their way to the race wars something they helped create but since Letty lost her memory she of course knows nothing of the races or her past life with Dom and friends. Soon thereafter Letty leaves Dom in order to find herself again or so she hopes. Meanwhile Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) is racing his son to school in his new minivan.

Back to war on the streets where it all began the team takes one last ride against a predator and his army in order to protect the ones they love and bring justice back home for good. It’s never goodbye amongst brothers.
The film is not long on dialogue but it is truly filled with some of the best action scenes that I’ve seen in quite some time. Explosions, car chases, fist fights, CGI for days this film is action packed from start to finish yet still being able to make sense of a plot which is extremely brilliant. The CGI at times may have fallen a bit too heavy in terms of visual believability but that aside it is awesome to watch in IMAX. A great score with some superb written lines this film is definitely going to be another box office success. Tastefully done they even pay homage to a wonderful actor, Paul Walker, with some old footage and spoken words. He will be missed. As for the actors I can truly not say anything bad about any of them since by this time this Furious family is nothing less than exceptional from the leads, to the supporting actors to the extras. Overall a movie filled with what it sought for action, action and more action. Written and enjoyed with three paws out of four by Jon Patch.
