age 14+


I knew the others in the series were bad so when I saw this one I wasn't really expecting anything good but this isn't about racing cars in cliched races that we've all seen before, no, this one is an actually very exciting heist movie that would be pretty good still but they made the best choice that the franchice has ever made and casted Dwayne Johnson. As I stated this movie would've been good even without him but It was really good with him. It was nice to have a charecter like Dwayne in this movie someone you like and want to see more of. Dwayne Johnson indeed reved life back into the "Fast & Furious" Franchice.

Too much violence
