That's the spirit ;-)! Hail @Doubleoego!
It really depends what kind of action you prefer @Germanlady.
Do you prefer lots of CGI, over-the-top, Die Another Day-esque action? If so, then both the Bond film "Die Another Day" and the recent "Furious 7" have your favourite kind of action.
Or do you prefer gritty realism, long shots and easy-to-follow edited action, as if it could really happen to you? If so then movies like "Bullitt" (Steve McQueen), "Ronin" and the upcoming "SPECTRE" have your favourite kind of action.
I think we all knew it'd hit the billion dollar mark, just not this fast! ;)
I actually think this series is one of the greater action franchises on offer. They always find cool and clever stunts to do, many of which they're doing for real, like the cars piling out of the plane thousands of feet in the air. However, the films go beyond simple action with the themes of love and family that run between each of the core characters. A lot of people have gone out to the theaters to see Paul's farewell film and pay tribute, but there are also those there that simply love these characters and who want to see where their journeys go next.
My only worry is that the franchise is just going to continue on for more and more films now because of this massive financial success, which I feel conflicted about because from what I've heard, this film hits a sweet spot that signals that the story should end.

That's the beauty of them, how batshit insane and over the top they are. Thought the new one was a blast. A bit too much CG for my tastes at times, but overall, a solid installment.
Any bit of logic the series had was most certainly thrown out the window in 'The Fate of the Furious,' particularly the fact that:
To be fair people said the same thing about Bond and that was before the 60s ended. Let these movies and audiences have their fun, the FnF movies are harmless and aren't hurting anyone.
And they absolutely ravage at the box office, so there won't be an end in sight for them for a while. It's like all this superhero fare; I don't care for it at all, but there's a big enough audience for it that warrants an endless supply of these movies.
I agree that 8 is better than 7. I still like 6 and 5 the best.
I liked Paul Walker very much ever since Joyride and I am not good with people dying young.
Can somebody tell me without spoilering everything if Walker's Death has been tastefully incorporated into F7?
Haven t had any desire to watch any more.
I don't believe they could've given him a more tasteful, loving send-off than they did in 'Furious 7.' You really should give it a go some time, tugs at the heart strings.
@Thunderfinger, just like I've told the others who gave up around the time you did, you should give the new ones a try. They're quite different beasts compared to the first few installments.
Heh, you're not wrong there.
