Movie has the least sexual innuendo than others.

This movie is great, I watched the movie with my 10 yr old son and he LOVED IT. Me and my son watched F9 In the theaters and that movie was pretty fine for my child so we thought we would give this one a go. Violence: The violence in this movie is pretty much the same as in all the f&f movies, lots car chases and explosions. Language: This movie contains pretty mild language, 8 s-words 2 son of a b---h 1 quiet f bomb 4 what the hell 2 jesus Sexual content: This movie contains less sexual content in before but still has scantily clad woman at a party, but nothing serious. I think that a mature 10 yr old can watch this. Thanks for reading my review!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (52 ):

Talented horror director James Wan takes over the Fast & Furious franchise helm and brings a definite freshness to it in the seventh installment. The action scenes have more gleeful energy and absurd humor, and there are more showstoppers than ever before. Additionally, the characters are less about machismo and more about "family" bonding. This element is likely due to Walker's untimely death; his presence lends the movie an elegiac tone. (With the aid of digital magic, Walker's brothers stood in for the actor's uncompleted scenes.)

All that said, Furious 7 keeps up the series' unfortunate take on women as objects; no female appears who doesn't look good in a bikini. It's also the longest movie in the series so far, and it can't keep up the pace for two-plus hours. The energy eventually flags, and the explosions grow tiresome -- which is too bad, since the blocky, chunky writing could easily have been trimmed. But there's a spectacular 90-minute action movie hidden somewhere within...
