Fate Of The Furious Is Disjointed, Nonsensical, High-Octane Action — And No One's Complaining! See The Fate In Our Review Roundup!

no title

In the span of 7 films, the Fast and the Furious franchise grew from a fast-paced B-action film to a full-blown, star-studded blockbuster franchise — and if Fast 8 is any indication, this series doesn't plan on slowing down.

But from the absence of series favorite Paul Walker to an overcrowded cast of action stars, how did The Fate Of The Furious fare with the backseat drivers of cinema, the critics?

Not so bad, it seems — as the film currently has a 79% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Because nearly every early viewer knew the mindless action they were getting into, and praised the film for raising the bar with even more over the top stunts and explosions! (Dom racing a heat seeking missile? Sure, why not!)

Of course, those who actually paid attention to the story had a laundry list of complaints including: logic-defying action plots, a disjointed narrative, and unfathomable character decisions to make old enemies part of the gang.

Still, critics couldn't help but love Vin Diesel's grunty dialogue and testosterone-fueled one-upmanship between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham — not to mention series newcomers Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren adding some much needed femme fatalism!

These 'Freelance Journalist' Bros Asking Their City Council To Build A Statue Of Paul Walker Will Give You Hope — Even Though It Was All A Prank!

The city of San Clemente needs a hero to look up to in these dark and gnarly times, and two surfer bros have the perfect solution: erect a giant statue of Paul Walker in the middle of the coastal California town.

Last week, two unassuming bros petitioned the San Clemente City Council to construct a 12-foot-tall steel statue of the late actor, making him the official icon of the town.

Speaking to the council, the impassioned dudes said the Walker statue could be "a beacon of headlights that can guide us down the poldusty road" in an otherwise "bummer year."

The speeches from a guy named Chad Kroeger and his pal Bodhi are caked with plenty of references to the Fast & Furious franchise — and even nods to more obscure Walker titles like Meet The Deedles and Eight Below.

Though it all comes crumbling down when the council asks if the actor has any ties to the town of San Clemente. (He does not, but his cousin went to high school there!)

If these two earnest surfer bros fighting to erect a statue of their bro-y icon seems too good to be true — it's because it is.

The fact that the first speaker's name is the lead singer from Nickelback tipped off some viewers that this stunt is actually

Paul Walker's tragic death could have been prevented, and his daughter isn't going to rest until she proves it.

Meadow Walker's latest legal filing in her wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche accuses the car company of hiding key information by heavily redacting what they were legally forced to send to her legal team.

Apparently one of Meadow's lawyers was able to see through the blacked out sections on a more advanced computer. And what Meadow and the team saw sickened them.

In a series of emails, employees actually joked about the high number of crashes of the Carrera GT, the car in which Paul and his friend Roger Rodas died.

In an excerpt, one employee writes:

Vin Diesel doesn't want to let the late Paul Walker down.

The upcoming The Fate of the Furious will mark the first Fast & Furious film to not feature Walker since 2006's Tokyo Drift.

And because "Pablo" is never far from Diesel's mind, the actor once again paid tribute to his fallen costar, who died in a car accident in 2013, in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

In the caption, Diesel spoke on the "challenging task" of shooting the successful franchise's latest installment without Walker, writing:

We can't believe it's been three years…

On November 30, 2014, just two days after Thanksgiving that year, Paul Walker was taken from us in a tragic automobile accident at the ridiculously young age of 40.

While we'll never see that smile again IRL, at least we can look back on a surprisingly broad body of work.

After all, the Fast & Furious star started acting way back in the 80s! Take a moment to remember the late great Paul's long career (below):
