REEL DEAL: Furious 7 REVIEW

I'm excited when after Fast 6 is that they will have Furious 7 which we wanted to be filmed here in the Philippines when they went here for the Asian premiere. Unfortunately Paul Walker got into a car accident during a fund raising event for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. A gesture that touched his fans here and made his name immortal with his role. Now with Fast and Furious 7 shows here, it will be the last time we will see him and many are curious how his last ride will be.

And it was indeed another festival of cars, lots of them. And in the tradition of the series, it will involve explosions, crashes, races, and technology. Coming for the crew is the "big bad brother" Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) who is after revenge for his fallen brother, Owen Shaw. There is another dilemma with the involvement of another terror group after a highly valued hostage.

The value of family beyond friendship still persist as the driving motivation for the gang with the demise of Han in Tokyo, they become the hunted with lives on the line. Ronda Rousney also makes an on screen debut with what she does best, fighting. It was pretty emotional with the tribute for Paul brought tears to everyone's eyes including mine.

Furious 7 is now showing in cinemas. Distributed by United International Pictures.

Deliberation time kids!
