The fact that Furious 7 is messier than any of the past installments is more than mitigated by its grandeur. "Dom, cars don't fly! Cars don't fly!" Brian yells before its biggest stunt. Furious 7 makes you believe they can.

The director, James Wan, sends cars repeatedly airborne and seems himself to marvel at the results; the movie's real subject is the stunt work, but its stars' authentic chemistry lends melody to its relentless beat.

As zippy, playful and amiably preposterous as the best of the previous models.

"Furious 7" could have come across as ghoulish, but it's not until the very end that we're reminded of Walker's fate, and the filmmakers handle it with taste and respect.

Who would have thought that a series addicted to the high of movement could also summon a solemnity that leaves you moved?
April 3, 2015
The only grace note in this otherwise determinedly graceless movie is the classy way Walker's exit is handled. To say more is to say too much.
April 3, 2015
The latest instalment of the franchise cost a pretty penny, yet often feels less like a slick blockbuster than a demented day-time soap.
April 3, 2015
Furious 7 kicks the biggest and hardest, but it's far from the best.
April 3, 2015
This is an immensely entertaining movie, and if the filmmakers are wise, they'll quit on this high note.
April 3, 2015
It's all entertaining enough, I suppose. But there's a twisted coldness under the action that's anxiously concealed by the characters' refrains of the importance of "family" and sticking together and other ostensibly nice stuff.
April 3, 2015
The real stars of these films are the bonkers action setpieces, and "Furious 7" achieves new high points in that department.
April 3, 2015
It's all dumb, but it's wonderfully, comfortably dumb in just the right way.
April 2, 2015
"Cars don't fly!" is the recurring cry in Fast and Furious 7 and in scene after improbably hilarious heavy-metal crashing scene, this idea is disproved.
April 2, 2015
What transpires is grimmer than what's come before, and without the sense of fun, the absurdity of the action becomes less enjoyable.
April 2, 2015
Superior set pieces continue to sustain this most dumbly enjoyable of franchises ...
April 2, 2015
A remarkably satisfying and entertaining action movie, one of the best in the series. Put your brain in neutral and enjoy the ride.
April 2, 2015
The movie doesn't hold together as well as the previous chapter, but that's really a function of expanding the cast still further.
April 2, 2015
Furious Seven provides what viewers have come to expect from the long-running The Fast and the Furious series: a string of high-octane, physics-defying action scenes loosely connected by a narrative that occasionally makes rudimentary sense.
April 2, 2015
The film follows an exceedingly well-traveled road, though the formula-a crew of racer-adventurers who put dual premiums on speed and family values-has been spiked with ever more spectacular, or preposterous, effects.
April 2, 2015
For a franchise known for cheesy, heavy-handed lines, Furious 7 served up a classy, heartbreaking send-off for its departed star, one that acknowledged the tragedy of real life without allowing it to overwhelm the fictional world.
