Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
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.

At the beginning of the film, before the race, Dom tweaks the engine of the car he is about to use to make it faster. He uses the opener ring of a soda can to attach a hose to a part of the engine, calling it a "poor man's turbo". Later during the race, when he engages it, he says, "Ok Buster, lets see if this works," hinting that Brian O'Connor taught it to him. Dom's crew constantly referred to Brian as "The Buster" or "Buster" throughout the first film. See more »
When Tej fires the Ripsaw machine gun, spent brass is shown hitting the ice. However, they are crimped at the end, revealing that they are blanks and not from live rounds. 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.

Do not bother spending your hard-earned money on The Fate of the Furious. It is yet another lame sequel of one of the lamest franchises from Hollywood. Honestly cannot believe that this is the 8th installment.
The writing and dialog is painfully cliché, like a 6 year old wrote it. The story, despite their intentions is so predictable that you cannot help but roll your eyes for the entire movie.
The acting... ohhhhh... the "acting"... some of the worst I have ever seen. Can Vin Diesel actually get worse at acting? Yes, he can. Even the performances from seasoned actors like Charlize Theron and Dwayne Johnson felt wooden, no doubt due to the horrid script and direction.
Not even the action sequences nor special effects could save this movie, as they were fake enough to repeatedly kill your suspension of disbelief and distract from what little story exists.
Dear Hollywood: Enough with the tired sequels. Enough with super hero movies. Take a chance on some original ideas.
