Yes I did find the plot interesting.

I find this film enjoyable and forgettable.    

My favorite bits are the banter between Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). All the New York cars getting hacked and going on a serious zombie Car rampage. The Prison breakout scene where Hobbs & Shaw breakout cost mayhem before Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) breaks it up to arrange both Hobbs & Shaw to work together & Shaw final fight scene on a plane trying to Rescue Dom’s son.      

The Main Characters are Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, a former criminal and professional street racer who has retired and settled down with his wife, Letty. He is coerced by Cipher to work against his team.

Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs, a Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent who allied with Dom and his team following their outings in Rio de Janeiro and Europe.

Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, a rogue special forces assassin imprisoned by Hobbs and the DSS after his defeat in Los Angeles, who serves as an ally to help Dom’s team take down Cipher.

Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Dom’s wife and a former professional street racer.

Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, a former criminal from Barstow and a member of Dom’s team.

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges as Tej Parker, a mechanic from Miami and a member of Dom’s team.

Scott Eastwood as Little Nobody, a law enforcement agent working under Mr. Nobody.

Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, a computer hacktivist and a member of Dom’s team.

Elsa Pataky as Elena Neves, the mother of Dom’s child and a former Rio police officer who moved to the United States to become Hobbs’ new partner at the DSS.

Kurt Russell as Mr. Nobody, an intelligence operative and the leader of a covert ops team which previously aided Dom and his team in taking down Deckard in Abu Dhabi.

Charlize Theron as Cipher, a criminal mastermind and cyberterrorist who coerces Dom into working against his team by holding Elena and their son hostage.

Would you recommend this film to a friend?

I will recommend this one to die heart fans.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars – Rotten Tomatoes/Flixster
