So was there ever any explanation given for what happened to Brian and Rome's plans to open up a garage in the second film?
73% on RT & 59 on Metacritic — not far from the sixth film.

It's now at 79% on RT — the second-highest score for the franchise (after #7).
Bad news guys: they won't be going to space
DUDE. That article suggests Dom racing Marty McFly's DeLorean through time. That would be even more awesome than going to space. That has to be the movie after Dom ramps his Dodge Charger off a space station.
I'd rather see them meet the Transformers. You can have Rome be Epps' twin brother he doesn't talk about.
Or maybe they'll meet the Ghost Rider.
Moviebob review and spoilers
Fate is probably the closest you'll ever get to having a Pacifier 2, except instead of Diesel, it's Jason Statham protecting a baby
It is gloriously self-aware, cheesy in many parts (Deckard Shaw is extremely humanized and becomes a hero by the end of the film, and there's even a baby poop joke) and yet it's eminently watchable and entertaining.

I liked it. It was fun, the acting was decent, Charlize Theron makes for a good villain, and there's one element in particular that I absolutely loved, which was a nice surprise.
However, there was also one thing in here that I REALLY didn't care for. In fact, I had to stop myself from audibly groaning in the theatre because I cannot believe that they went there.
how do they reconcile that with him killing Han in the previous film?
That wasn't actually what really bothered me.
They don't. Deckard starts off being his villainous self, but he's basically conscripted into working for the heroes after they tell him Owen is locked up. Hobbes then gets hold of Deckard's service record in the SAS and points out that he was awarded with medals for valiant actions, which immediately changes the focus of the latter character. By the end of the film, he's sitting with the rest of the group at the barbecue. He and Dom basically have a truce because they helped each other.
The climax of the film is probably the oddest part. It cuts back and forth between the team racing to flee from trucks/snowmobiles/a nuclear sub to Deckard cracking jokes with a baby as he kills everyone on Cipher's plane, intercut with flashbacks that explain Dom's plan and how Deckard and Shaw got roped into helping him.

Odd. I was expecting a truce but actually inviting the guy to a BBQ is out of left field. Guess I'll have to see it for myself
Just watched it. Holy shit. I mean...just...holy shit.
When I watched Furious 7, I thought that they could never top that one in terms of action. I'm so happy that I was proven wrong.
Based on writing, which I thought was okay but pretty wonky at places, I would give this movie about 2.5 stars out of 4. But holy fuck, the action is so mindblowingly awesome I will rate this one 3.5.
I mean, Jesus. When I watched the very first race, I got at least half worth of my ticket.
Guess which film just broke The Force Awakens' worldwide opening record…
I'm about to watch the movie. I just realized I picked seat F8 at my theater.
Not sure if there was something subconscious going on there...
I'm 100% for this idea (and 110% if they bring Helen Mirren and Luke Evans back as well).
Also supposedly Charlize Theron might return as well, cool.
you know for an action movie series, the villains tend to survive a lot.
Just caught this on DVD.
Pretty ridiculous. Now that he's fought a tank and a sub, all that's left is an alien invasion.
Dwayne Johnson confirms that he and Vin Diesel refused to film any scenes together on The Fate Of The Furious
Promising trailer for the ninth installment.
As for that Wham Shot at the end, well, I guess Luke Skywalker was right. No one is ever really gone
Okay, this is hype-inducing. This seems like the best one since Furious 7. That See You Again music sting was really sweet.
