The title of this movie has a cool story behind it, as you can see, it’s the eighth film in the franchise, “Fate” sorta sounds like the number “8”, and the franchise called “fast and furious”. The only problem with this is that there is no fate here, no finish to this immortal story. As long as these films make a billion dollars every time they make a new one, there will always be a new one in the pipeline, because honestly, everyone involved likes money.

Wing suits, submarines, billions in R&D, and entire governmental agencies are now in play with stakes so unbelievable there’s not a whole lot of emotional investment required for any of the characters.
