    It made bank, but it was the worst installment in the franchise. I suspect we will see a 65% drop off next weekend. Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson made the film. The “family” story line is played out.

    • I thought 2 Fast 2 Furious was the worst IMO but that’s just me. What I didn’t like about Fast 8 is how sort of stupid and unrealistic the action sequences are getting and they are just getting worst and worst. And yes the whole family thing is played out for sure.

        I think what is getting things mucked up is the fact that they went from street racers in the first film to international spy ring with more tech than 007. Its just getting way too silly. BUT that being said I would watch a Johnson and Statham spin off for sure.

          and Universal will keep making these films as long as they keep bringing in more than half a billion in cash.
