The Fast and Furious movies were once about a rag-tag group of car enthusiasts with a penchant for pulling off daring heists… and basically anything else cool they could do with a bunch of expensive cars. Some crazy shit has happened over the course of the past six films, but at least Dom and the gang were all humans made of flesh and blood. After watching Furious 7, I’m not so sure that’s the case any more.
Seriously, this movie starts looking a whole lot like a superhero film. The film’s new villain, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), is basically Jason Bourne by another name. But even Bourne got bloodied up and knocked off his feet a couple of times. Shaw is a one-man killing machine who somehow conveniently zips around the world to greet Dom’s crew wherever they go. And I’m pretty sure he’s invincible.
