In 2013, a man had a dream vision while being struck by the lightning bolt of inspiration: To make a movie with three titles and to use them interchangeably in various forms of marketing and representation of the film. That man was Justin Lin and this film is his last (in this franchise). And if the confusing title is any indication, the plot is just as confusing. What’s not confusing, is how much family means to Dom Toretto. And it means everything. If Dom would have to work for the government to take down an evil Crew of equal, if not greater, skill just to get a chance at winning back Letty Ortiz (who has lost her memory) and reuniting the family once again, he’d probably do it. Now if you’re a man like Shaw, the leader of the evil Crew, you might just do everything in your power to have the most confusing motivations, actions, plans, and schemes as possible, just because villains are hard. But hey, all your favorite characters are back and introduced in the title sequence to cut down any chance of surprise and joy you may have had.
Anyway, our feelings about this movie might be transparent, but the plot of this 3 hour headache sure isn’t.
