This film is all action with a small plot and terrible dialog? Multicolored birds like peacocks could be on the screen with all the preening, muscle flexing and tattoo adoration?? There are a LOT of stunts that I’ve never seen before and some are fantastic, especially with motorcycles. There is a LOT of CGI too. I think this film is overload on everything!! I don’t know if there is one quiet moment in the entire film?? Diesel is going to be fifty this year, he will need to add more installments and rake in as much money as he can before he ages out!! 2 ½* (This movie is so-so)
