Furious 7 (2015)

Let me start off by saying that this is not a great movie, and if you did not like even one of the previous six movies (even the Tokyo Drift one), then you might be disappointed in this installment.  I hesitate to say that this is the last, because while Paul Walker died during the filming of this movie, they finished this one out with what they had plus some CGI, and there is no telling what they will do in the future.  there are plenty of action heroes in this film to mount a sequel.

The Furious team is reunited under the ever stoic Vim Diesel, and they are joined by FBI agent Dwayne Johnson, who has a relatively minor but memorable role in this film.  The opposition is valiantly played by Jason Statham, so it really is an action movie all star cast, and it does not fail to have endless chases scenes, frequent gun battles and the occasional hand to hand combat.  It was exactly as I expected it to be.
