Fast & Furious 8 trailer review: a reassuring, obscene platter of murder
Death! Statham! Market stall hair! The Fate of the Furious is an explosive return to the Fast franchise’s hoariest old tropes ........watch trailer>>>>>>
The Fast & Furious series will soon be eight films long, which means that nothing it can offer will be remotely surprising any more. Over the course of the last seven films, a formula has been devised and rigidly stuck to and – even though I’m writing this before I’ve pressed play on the new Fast 8 trailer – I already know what to expect.
There will be much talk of “family”, all of it delivered in an indecipherable sub-bass rumble. There will be good guys who turn bad, and bad guys who turn good. There will be sequences where Ludacris says “Oh shit” into a walkie talkie. And, naturally, there will be an obscene platter of endless joshing murder. So, can the Fast 8 trailer actually surprise me? Let’s break this thing down.
