    I loved it, the tribute at the end made tears fall for sure, I think they should leave this franchise alone now. It was a great farewell.
    Great action, it for sure brought new meaning To Fast & Furious, as well as Ride Or Die.

    I am not an avid fan of the F& F Franchise. The only reason I went to see this particular movie was out of respect for Paul Walker. His final scene on film really hit home that he is no longer with us. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and countless fans.
