Just got back from “The Fate of the Furious.” I worked at the New York Auto Show this week (actually, I’m not even done yet, my site’s coverage isn’t up yet so I have to spend tomorrow copy editing) and attended Dodge’s unveiling of the Challenger Demon SRT Tuesday night at which Vin Diesel showed up, so you’d think I’d be a little sick of this by now, but nah.
I enjoy these movies so much. They’re kind of cheesy, but I love the cars and the action, and I think they did a great job turning it from a racing series to an action series, and there are some really fun female characters.
I missed Paul Walker’s character, and two of my favorite characters died in previous movies, and then another character I liked was written out of this one, but the action was enough to keep it going. Keeping this brief so I don’t spoil it for anyone here who might end up seeing it, but... anyone else planning to go? Or am I all alone here? :)
