Film critic Chuck Koplinski stops by the Morning Show for this week’s Friday Flicks and this weekend another fast-and furious film and a follow up to a cult-classic on area screens.
The Fate of the Furious (Starts Friday) When a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom (Vin Diesel) into the world of crime and a betrayal of those closest to him, the crew face trials that will test them as never before. Reveling in the ridiculous nature of its story and stunts, director F. Gary Gray manages to bring a sense of fun back to the franchise. Though overly long and woefully obvious, this is a feature fans of the series will embrace. 2 ½ Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated PG-13. 136 minutes. AMC, CAR, HAR, SAV.
