Kurt Rus­sell, Tony Jai The au­to­mo­tive fran­chise sur­vives the death of Walker to de­liver a slightly ho-hum sev­enth edi­tion. De­spite the lengthy and sen­ti­men­tal trib­ute to Walker in the closing scenes (mon­tage, ahoy) his ab­sence is not as keenly felt as for­mer direc­tor Justin Lin. His re­place­ment, Wan ( Saw,

The Con­jur­ing) may be a dab hand at things that go bump in the night, but ac­tion is not his strong point. A Tourette’s flurry of fast cuts. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 134 min
