Furious 7 (PG)
Directed by: James Wan.
Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez.
The pitch: The hard-driving heroes must work together again to stop a man bent on avenging his brother’s death.
Never miss a local story.
The formula: Start your motors with a charge of “Fast & Furious.” Kick it into second gear with bits of “The Transporter.” Cross the finish line with salute to “Bullitt.”
Go see it: If you love this franchise. This is one of the best in the series.
Don’t go see it: If you prefer slow-moving stories to fast cars.
Farewell: It’s very difficult to figure out which scenes had to be done through computer magic after the death of Paul Walker.
