The conclusion of this film is truly heart-wrenching and emotional, as Paul Walker had only completed half of his role before his untimely passing in 2013. However, the movie boasts some of the most impressive action sequences in the entire franchise. Deckard Shaw, played by Statham, remains one of the best villains in the series – a cunning black ops spy who easily manipulates people against each other. His introduction scene, where he tears through a hospital during the opening credits, is nothing short of spectacular. The addition of Kurt Russell as spy leader Mr. Nobody is also a welcome one, as well as Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones, who plays the hacker named Ramsey.
In this movie, there are also some other crazy scenes. One of them involves Vin Diesel driving his car straight through a helicopter and then tossing a bag full of grenades onto it. Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is recovering in a hospital bed when he looks out the window and tells his daughter, “Daddy’s got to go to work.” He then proceeds to flex his muscles and break out of his full-arm cast (let’s not even think about how unrealistic that is), hop on an ambulance, shoot down a drone, and fire a turret like a maniac.
