Yes, another MSMR.
I just finished getting caught up on the franchise. I've previously seen 1 through 6 and watched 7 last night and 8 tonight.
I'll keep it short.
While this franchise is largely a mess. The later films have taken on more of the typical "crew" style action film. There certainly is plenty of
ridiculous plot points and gratuitous action scenes.
However I think the latest is actually carving out a bit more of an actual plot than some of the middle films.
This one was much easier to follow than 5, 6 and 7.
I may be biased, cause Jason statham. Someone I'm a huge fan of and I like his characters return to being "good" in this film. Contrary to him being a
villain in 7.
Worth a watch, but certainly does require the viewing of the prior 3 films to understand the characters individual plots.
I loved the later half which could be summed up as statham baby sitting. If you are a fan you'll enjoy that concept of his usual action rolls.
It was enjoyable enough. While I liked the early films I do think the addition of such actors as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham helps to keep the
action franchise fresh(ish).
