Al and Linda Lerner review “The Fate of the Furious” on Movies and Shakers


Strap yourself in for this one. It’s over the top with creative cartoonish action the characters in this cast could not possibly survive. Sit back and get ready for another Fast and Furious ride. The audience giggled at some of the outrageous stunts, but the actors take it pretty seriously. This time they get chased by a Russian submarine.

Director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, music videos for so many big names) put his stamp on this one with screenwriter Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious series). The previous installment of this franchise, Fast and Furious 7, broke records with $1 billion at the box office worldwide. This is on the fast track, too. It’s takes the action to Cuba, the first movie to be shot there since the 50 year embargo was lifted.
