The movie starts with a flashback of Dom and his brother assisting their father while he was racing. Then an accident happened and their father's car hit the wall, exploded and killed him. 

Dom was arrested later for nearly beating another racer, Linder to death. He was sentenced. While serving, Dom remembers that it was Jakob that had worked on their father's care and concludes that Jakob causes their father's death. Upon release, he confronts and challenges Jakob to a race, upon which Jakob has to leave town if he loses. Jakob lost.

In the present time, Dom and Letty raise his son, Brian, away from the city. When Roman, Tej and Ramsey arrive and share about Mr. Nobody's plane was attacked mid-air after capturing Cipher, the family realises that they are needed again.

The team arrives at the crash site and finds a device named Aries that could hack into any computer-controlled weapons system before being ambushed by the country's military. Amidst running and saving themselves from the military, Dom realises that Jakob is behind the ambush. Jakob manages to steal Aries from the team.  

Mia joins the team and goes to Tokyo with Letty to find more clues as they learn that Aries is somehow connected to their deceased friend, Han Lue. In Tokyo, the duo manages to find Han, alive and is warding Elle, a teenager whose parents were the inventors of Aries. And Elle's DNA is the key to power Aries.

Jakob, with the assistance and funding from Otto, a spoiled rich brat, was the one who captured Cipher.

Determined to face Jakob, Dom seeks help from Queenie Shaw, the mother to the Shaw brothers about Jakob's whereabouts. Queenie sends him to Jakob's place, only to have Dom captured by Interpol, a few minutes after he met Jakob. And turns out, the Interpols are fake and are actually Dom's friends.

Dom manages to capture Jakob, only later to have Otto and his military come attacking Dom's hideout and capturing Elle.

With Aries is complete and ready to launch, Jakob is determined to kill his brother and the rest of the family. 

Cipher manages to entice Otto to take her as his partner and turn against Jakob.  

How will the family solve the world-saving mission? Is blood thicker than power and money?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.9/ 5.0 I have no expectation towards F&F movies anymore, to be truthful. I just want to be excited when watching high-speed chase and the actions.

But in this latest installment, you'll be amazed at the 'wondrous' and 'magical' stunts that race cars could do. Running up a fallen bridge, horizontally and swinging from a vine for instance. 

Just throw logic out of the window when watching this one OK. Don't start questioning the rules of math and physics and engineering while watching this.  

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 I am happy to see old and new faces in this one. Helen Mirren made a cameo here - an impactful albeit a very brief one.

Will I watch it again: Yes, I don't mind watching it again, along with the rest of the F&F movies.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
