Yup. Was definitely super emotional to watch. Never would I have thought that a Fast and Furious movie would make me cry. I think it hits us hard since Paul Walker made such a big impact on our generation/community.

RIP Paul Walker

All the feels of the ending...and some of the vintage Dwayne Johnson moments are awesome. Small, but if you know his past, they were there.

I watched it today and without a doubt there were some ridiculous scenes, but it was highly enjoyable. The whole family theme will hit hard for those with young families, myself included.

Saw it at Riverport tonight, recognized a lot of cars in the parking lot so I know some of ya'll did as well.

All I can say is wow, 14 years later, what a trip. I didn't cry, but I definitely felt it.

RIP Paul Walker.

Wont mince words as that was a fucking terrible movie (I'm sure that's gonna be an unpopular opinion). I've a feeling that their continuity supervisor either fell asleep ten minutes into the whole filming schedule and never woke up, or they didn't even bother hiring one. Simply on a technical level, the film had far too many mistakes. Even on a practical level, a lot of it didn't make sense.

That said, it's an FnF film, so I wasn't expecting a realistic movie. Definitely a leave-your-mind-at-the-door and simply enjoy the moving pictures in front of you. A few of the technical errors did end up pulling me out of my enjoyment but overall it was a decent addition to the franchise. My only real issue with that aspect is that it's definitely veered far off course from it's origins, though I did enjoy a bunch of the nods to the original film (Race Wars, driving under an 18-wheeler, etc).

And I did genuinely appreciate the final few minutes of the film. Nice monologue by Vin Diesel (in Dom-guise) to Paul.

Not going to lie, I teared up a bit.

Logically, I know Paul Walker was just an actor in a movie.

But a huge part of me credits the FnF movies (mostly the first 3) with my love affair for cars. I remember being 9 years old and begging my dad to buy the VHS - yes, it was THAT long ago - copy of the first movie. We had to have watched it about 20 times the first week we owned it. To this day I can pretty much recite every single line in the film word-for-word. Growing up, guys like Walker were a huge role model for me. Not only on screen, but because he was a charitable individual who didn't do stupid-ass shit like the celebrities of today (Kim K, Kanye, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, etc.) but instead stayed low-key and true to himself. I saw that clip of him where he went to Japan to visit Mine's and test drive an R34 and thinking... damn, this guy actually is Brian O'Connor in real life!

RIP Paul. IMO Universal did a good job with paying tribute to him, I was really worried they'd be insensitive and kill him off but the way they did it was awesome. Especially at the end when the two cars split ways (that song too, DAMN!) was extremely touching to watch. You can see the pain in Vin Diesel's eyes, and you know he isn't just acting at that point. Paul really was his best friend and it shows in their chemistry. Personally, I was crushed when I received the news that Paul died, and doubly crushed when the news came out that he passed away during a charity event... it's times you wonder why a celebrity who actually does something constructive with their fame dies, but many of them live senseless lives of hedonism and worthlessness for 80+ years...

That being said, the movie requires a LOT of "suspension of disbelief". But then again, movies are entertainment, and I personally enjoy movies that don't take themselves super seriously. I pay $15 to be entertained, not to pull out my imaginary fact checker and tick boxes in my head.

Realistically, I'll probably watch Fast 8 if (and when) it ever comes out. But those movies will never be the same without Paul Walker.

P.S: the only way they could have made this movie "better" as a tribute was to have Ja Rule at some point screaming "NOOOOO, MONICAAAA"

^ Couldn't have put it better myself.

Watched the movie earlier tonight and goddamn, it definitely did not disappoint in the "no fucking way wtf how is that even happening" aspect. Hobb's one liners definitely deserve a honourable mention.

But those last few minutes hit way too hard. Tears were on the verge of falling out. The combination of the song, the tribute to the OG cars, Dom's words, and the cars splitting up was simply a perfect ending, while heartbreaking at the same time. You can tell it wasn't just a tribute to O'Connor and the family aspect, but a tribute to Paul Walker as a person. I was pretty speechless at the end of the movie and just sat there for a few minutes processing everything and gathering myself. The flashback scenes reminded me of back in early highschool when FnF marathons would air on MuchMusic on friday nights and I'd sit through all of them..oh man the memories. Never thought a FnF movie could make me feel this way. I thought the tribute at the beginning of Fast 6 was good, but this one just slammed everyone in the theatre with the feelz.

On a side note, while I was headed to the theatre, I drove behind a STI with the RIP Paul Walker decal on their rear window. Thought that was a cool little coincidence.

Lomac being a production guy, and me being a nerd for this sort of stuff, there was one technique in the fight sequences I don't think I have ever seen before. Curious to see if it stuck out to you as much as it did myself.

It happens atleast 3 times in the movie, I believe the first time being when Hobbs first fights statham, the next being when Brian fights the guy inside the bus when it flips on it's side, and the final time when Letty is fighting Rousey in Abu dhabi.

They "roll" the camera, it's a unique effect. If you watch as the fighters get flipped upside down, or as the bus rolls over the camera also does a roll. It sort of freezes the fighters in the frame, but you can tell what's going on. It's pretty cool.

I'd be interested to see how they achieved that. I looked through some of the behind the scenes stuff and didn't notice this mentioned.

I forget what the name of that technique is called, but it's a relatively simple process. Typically it's merely a matter of bolting the camera to a wall or piece of furniture that's going to be moving along with the actors. If a couch flips onto it's back, just tack the camera to the top and let it fall with the scene.

Another means of achieving this shot is to use a remote swivel head that can rotate upside down or to use an actual repurposed industrial robotic arm. The former is definitely cheaper but the latter can be programmed to do the exact same shot as many times as you need, at whatever speed you want.



Alternatively they could have been using an extensively modified version of a body harness.



Either way, it's definitely an effective shot.

One thing I want to touch on that I doubt most people will think about is the change of directors from Justin Lin to James Wan. A lot of people were critical of having a director that's done virtually nothing but horror movies suddenly in charge of an action thriller. Merely looking at the way Fast 6 and Furious 7 are visualized, I think it was a good decision to go with Wan. The thing about directing horror movies is that, at least in his case, it tends to be a very visual genre. Therefore a lot of shots have to be thought out well in advance and need to add something to the scene. Lin's visuals were good, yes, but still very generic shots. Wan, on the other hand, seemed to give his Director of Photography more freedom on the creativity aspect (as touched on in Meme405's comments). No, not all of the shots succeeded and some were definitely overused (far too many 360* dolly shots, imo), but overall it added that little extra visual eye candy that was missing from the other movies.

If you still don't quite know what I'm talking about, watch Ron Howard's Rush. The camera work and angles in that movie is probably the best I have ever seen in any movie, especially when it comes to the creativity of many of the angles.

I thought the movie sucked compared to the previous ones. It started off really well with race wars but then it focused too much on fights, guns and explosions instead of cars, became another typical action genre movie. I thought the military helicopter and the predator drone in the middle of LA was really ridiculous and not in the cool way.

PS the MMA girl can't act lol
