My Recent Review of: Fast & Furious 7.

WHAT I LIKE?

I like and love everything about Fast and Furious 8. I just loved how this movie gets even better and more insane on its 8th installment. The Fast & Furious is truly a rare and unique cinematic masterpiece that made a very bold and risky move in renewing its plot after the untimely death of Paul Walker and a somehow long overdue material. This 8th installment pleased all fans with its very superb and impressive high-octane sequences that will bring you at the edge of your seats all the time. The movie is an explosive array of well-choreographed stunts and very commendable production design especially the New York Scene and the Russian Ice mountains. Fast & Furious 8 is a record-breaking movie for me for having almost a long and continuous shot of car chases and crashes and a very impressive cinematography from beginning to end. The man-to-man actions were also commendable. I just admire how the camera angles were creatively played in some exciting scenes. Also, I loved how the cyber crime played with the plot and sequences. The plot was justified and was renewed for this film. It was a great move to add Cipher and her evil plans. For me, the film’s greatest strength aside from its visuals and action formula, is the cast. I am always impressed with a vibrant and talented characters in the movie. All of them delivered well and gave great compliments with each other. I still love the punch of comedy along the way. I also would like to commend the consistent sound engineering of the franchise. Overall, I loved how this 8th movie in the series placed everything in order for us to crave for more. I am just blown away with Fate and the Furious. One of Hollywood’s finest masterpiece so far best and among the franchise. Worth every admission ticket.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

The fact that Paul Walker didn’t make it on the 8th film still sucks but I still loved how they made a little tribute and remembrance to him.

WHAT I LIKE?

The film is as bad-ass as the characters. xXx: Return of Xander Cage is an action-packed film worthy of a 3rd installment. I was really impressed with the movie. I commend the jaw-dropping, edge-of-the-seat and superbly done stunts and action sequences that will literally blow your mind from beginning to end. Its like a never-ending action movie that never fails to entertain you and won’t leave you bored even for just a single minute. The adrenaline-rush of the film is manifested well as it lived by the brand of action and thrills only the xXx Franchise could bring. Loved the twist and turns of the story line as well. If you are in for some pure action genre, this movie is definitely for you. Aside from its impressive action formula, the movie is shot well on some great locations. Well, we have the Philippines here too (but I doubt if it was really shot here). Also, the film’s strength is attributed to its dynamic and very talented casts. Its rare that I love all the characters in this film. Everyone was pretty dope too. Great to see a majority of Asian actors and actresses here on this franchise. Well, Vin Diesel is Vin Diesel. Its worth-watching and highly recommended as well.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Well, it could have been slower but hey, its xXx!
