Johannesburg -  “Dominic Toretto has just gone rogue.” With these words, The Fate of the Furious kicks off with familiar high-octane action and probably the best cast the franchise has offered to date.

While I found the last movie lame and a bit cheesy, this new joint is dark, no-nonsense and butt-kicking - thanks mainly to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vin Diesel and Jason Statham. The banter between the rivals The Rock and Statham is laugh-out-loud-worthy. The fight scenes are absolutely staggering, especially when the two fight their way through a prison riot.
