Review: Fast & Furious – Hobbs & Shaw

So far removed from the franchise that it is almost bearable in its stupidity. For no discernible reason, different agencies from America and Britain team up two men who hate each other to stop a cyborg from destroying the world. If it weren’t for the utter paranoia of studios unable to release a movie without…

Review: Fast and Furious 8 (aka The Fate of the Furious)

All principles be damned. When a super hacker is bent on starting World War Three, stealing an EMP device and codes to nuclear weapons isn’t enough, she needs street racer and all around family guy, Dominic Toretto, on her side.
