I don't usually recommend to readers of this site to go see a movie - I think the only time I ever did was for Warrior back in 2011 - because I'm not a film critic nor should anyone be told what they should or should not see.
But in the case of Furious 7, I'm willing to make another exception.
I get if you're not a fan of the series and have no interest in seeing a 7th installment of a franchise built on fast cars, crazy stunts and constant butt shots of scantily clad women. But for Furious 7, it's much more than just another entry into the franchise. It's a touching tribute to the late Paul Walker who died midway through the filming of this movie back in November 2013.
I saw the film last night, and while it's not the best in the franchise (that title still belongs to Fast Five), it's an entertaining, exhilarating popcorn flick with some very moving dramatic weight in saying goodbye to Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner character.
I'm not going to spoil the last 5 minutes of the film, but to say I didn't get choked up seeing what the filmmakers did to honor their fallen star would be an understatement. It was a touching sendoff that can speak to anyone about losing someone you love.
While they may no longer be there, they are always with you wherever you go.
Go see Furious 7, now playing in theaters everywhere.
