This title has:

Too much swearing
age 14+

One heck of a car chase...

A fun rock-rolling ride of over-the-topness. It has summer blockbuster written all over it. Lots of ridiculous action and plenty of banter and silly lines. A memorable villain and a great crew of supporting characters. An always classy Helen Mirren and a super awesome surprise cameo that comes out of nowhere to assist in placing this film into the stratosphere of ridiculousness. The locations are great and the final shootout in Samoa is beautiful and a lovely nod to the Rock's heritage continuing the work Moana started. Kirby's performance is much better in the film than how she was portrayed in the trailers. A slick and slippery ride.
