The Fate of the Fu­ri­ous (M) Di­rected by F. Gary Gray Star­ring Vin Diesel, Dwayne John­son, Ja­son Statham, Char­l­ize Theron 136 mins Ex­pend­ables Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble more in­spired by Bros­nan-era Bond.

The dearly de­parted Paul Walker is hardly men­tioned or missed, as both Dwayne John­son and Ja­son Statham’s roles are beefed up, while the plot cen­tres around Diesel’s even less talk­a­tive than usual Toretto, as he finds him­self hav­ing to be­tray his ‘‘fam­ily’’ due to some un­re­solved per­sonal is­sues be­ing lever­aged by Theron’s cy­bert­er­ror­ist Cipher.

She’s per­haps the weak link of this oth­er­wise solidly silly slice of en­ter­tain­ing ac­tion, sim­ply repris­ing her ice queen shtick from The Hunts­man se­ries and of­fer­ing mo­tives more in keep­ing with a Batvil­lain from the 1960s.

Still, it’s pretty hard to hate some­thing as glo­ri­ously nutty as Fu­ri­ous 8. – James Croot

RED‘ The Ital­ian Job- Char­l­ize Theron and Vin Diesel star in The Fate of the Fu­ri­ous.
