A very busy week, but lesser pressure now, thanks to ‘Fast and Furious 7’
Sorry for not updating my blog for many days already. I had been very busy attending to design and drawings of my sisters’ upcoming salon shop. After I’m back from work, I had to deal with them till late night, wasting most of my time and effort on explaining many things they find it hard to understand. Couldn’t blame them since it is not their field. Finally, my part is considered mostly done for now, and I can catch a movie for a bit of entertainment this week at least. What’s the most recent movie that is not to be missed? Yes, it must be the ‘Fast and Furious 7’, latest instalment of the popular street-racing themed movie franchise that starred Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, Tyrese Gibson, etc.
Everyone is also very keen to watch this because it’s the last film for Paul Walker, an actor who died in a single-car accident two years ago while the filming is still taking place. Fortunately, many of his scenes were completed, and CGI, extra effects and his brothers were brought in later to cover the remaining scenes. We wanted to see his last work as we will no longer see him in future films anymore (so sad). And I’m glad that the film did very well especially in the ending scene that is specially created as a tribute to this great actor. I heard many were moved to tears when seeing the flashback scenes of him in the first six films in the franchise and then he drove off to the sunset (very beautiful and meaningful). What a moving conclusion to the film. This film is for Paul.
As for the whole movie, ‘Fast and Furious 7’ is absolutely fantastic. The actions are a lot and will surely put you to the edge of your seat. Eventhough most of the action sequences are over-the-top, but we definitely enjoyed it and didn’t bother of its illogicality. There are gun fights, martial arts fight, street fighting using tools, explosions, collapses, cyber-hacking, and of course, car racing; the main theme of the movie that it never gets away from. So many things, and all are intense. You wouldn’t want to close your eyes for a second while watching this exhilarating piece of work.
There is nothing to comment on the acting as everyone delivered average performances only in this category. This film isn’t for showcasing acting ability. It’s to showcase actions, and it delivered way over as I mentioned earlier. It raises the bar compared to the first six films. The camera works are also very good, particularly highlighted in several moments. James Wan is a perfect choice to direct this film. He is talented and could still direct other genres very well besides than horror movies he is famous for (Saw, The Conjuring, etc). And he is a Malaysian born. ‘Fast and Furious 7’ toppled the rest to become the best film for the first quarter of the year so far. Out of 10 points, I rate ‘Fast and Furious 7’ a total of 8.0. Crazily intense, exciting and moving. This movie is going to make huge money in box office worldwide. Don’t miss this one.
