Wrestling and filmmaking have an essential ingredient in their core that mirror each other: the need to convince an audience that something they know is scripted is real.
Once again, the set pieces are off the charts, nearing the pinnacle of being hard to top if your name isn't Mission: Impossible.
This is a fitting send-off for Paul Walker in a franchise that belonged to him just as much as Vin Diesel.
It feels like the action scenes sprung from drunken sessions of "Hey, you know what would be sweet?"
The core cast has as much chemistry as ever, and the addition of The Rock is a perfect fit.
The Rock is a great lead for this type of story, but you never quite get the Die Hard for the new generation that the trailer hints at.
