Now if we could just get Vin Diesel to finish Hannibal and the next Riddick movie, I'd be happy. Very, very happy.
Empire Online gives it 4 out of 5 stars and concludes, "Verdict: A group more bulletproof than The Avengers, causing more mayhem than General Zod. Think Universal doesn’t have a superhero franchise? Think again." Slash Film calls it a "frantic yet respectful goodbye to Paul Walker". Forbes calls it "the best of the bunch". Rolling Stone says, "Furious 7 is the best F&F by far, two hours of pure pow fueled by dedication and passionate heart. This one sticks with you."
Vanity Fair says,
The latest film, which opens Friday, can’t help but take on some deeper meaning, as the death of main cast member Paul Walker, killed in a car accident in late 2013, looms large throughout. But it doesn’t overwhelm—Furious 7 is respectful, even solemn, when it needs to be, but is still, thank God, plenty of crazy fun.Roger Ebert's site opens a positive review with this: "“Furious 7” is a glorious overcompensation, a film so concerned about its rampant machismo that the casual viewer might miss how it Tokyo-drifts atop soap opera bubbles." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 82%.
