Dominic Toretto has gone rogue. Ooooooooooh. We know something is wrong with this picture, and the answer to what that is comes halfway through this massive movie. The rest of the team has to use all of their might to stop him. The never ending fast and the furious saga has always been about cool cars, hot girls, buff guys, ridiculous action exotic locations, and one-liners. That formula has worked to make a few outstanding films, and, like this installment,  a number of just okay movies. The ridiculous action sequences are as cool or inspired as previous films. The drama feels especially soapy. Overall, Disappointing after the series best seventh film, Fate is still a pretty good action film and hopefully a harbinger of more to come from The Rock+Statham. -Note: The Rock and Vin Diesel, who are feuding, are, at times cleverly, never in the same shot.
