When it rains, it pours. We received a pretty great Furious 7 Super Bowl ad just a few days ago. Now here’s a brand new full trailer. I’m not sure we needed it, but I’m not complaining.
Actually that’s not true. Brace yourself, because I’m about to say something negative about this film. Here it goes: I don’t like how cartoony the big moment CG stuff looks. Excluding those goofy NOS engine zooms from the first couple films, there’s always been a practicality to the effects in these movies (or they convincingly took on that appearance, at least). All these overly-colorful explosions and extra-shiny flying cars are kind of bumming me out a little.
On the other hand, I like how Statham-centric this trailer is. He’s everywhere! The guy really really wants to kill our beloved gang, and he seems eager to do it in person rather than with hired goons. The Fast and Furious series hasn’t been the best in terms of villains, so I’m excited to see them have to put up with a real menace like this guy.
