The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - | SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

In­de­scrib­ably silly eighth episode in the car-chas­ing and he­li­copter-ex­plod­ing fran­chise. This time round, Theron comes on board as a ruth­less hacker with am­bi­tions to do some­thing ter­ri­ble. She and Mir­ren - as an ab­surd East End moll - are slightly mis­used, but the stunts are as ex­trav­a­gant as ever. The cen­tre­piece sees evil Charize send a mass of re­mote con­trolled cars about the streets of Man­hat­tan. It’s completely stupid. It’s completely awe­some. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 135 min
