It would have be easy to just assume that audiences as well as critics would write off Furious 7, the SEVENTH movie in the Fast and Furious franchise as predictable; and it would have been the wrongest assumption. Because the movie has emerged a critical darling with over an 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.2/10 on IMDb and as an audience pleaser, already reeling in almost $140 million domestically in its opening weekend alone.

The franchise — which began 14 years ago with a less outlandish The Fast and the Furious — centers around a ragtag crew of street racers turned globe-trotting vigilantes, who occasionally use their skills in service of the U.S. government.

Furious 7

A lot has changed in 14 years. People now jump off trucks stuck on the side of a speeding train onto a car going full speed toward a cliff.

The franchise is sometimes outlandish, sometimes sincere, but is constant with improbable stunts and the overwhelming feeling that the writer and directors are continually flipping off death and the laws of Physics.

But we don't even care.

So if you would like to get lost in 2 hours of unbelievable stunts and graphics. This movie is for you.

Disclaimer: I still haven't seen the movie. *cries in lastma*
