Fate of the Furious

Plot: Dom (Vin Diesel) gets blackmailed by evil hacker Cipher (Charlize Theron) to do three crimes, in Cuba, NYC and in Russia. Spy Mr Nobody (Kurt Russell) recruits the F&F team including Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej Parker (Ludacris Bridges), Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) as well as former enemy Deckard (Jason Statham) to stop Dom. What follows are many over-the-top car chases leading to a yet more over-the-top finale.   [imdb]    [photos]

Review: Fast cars, showy chases, party music -- it is fun movie. The shadowy spies are not serious enough to make us worry; and the movie becomes comic and self-satire as it progresses.

Jason Statham beating up bad guys one handed while holding a baby is just funny.
