11/10/2015 by Alison WillmoreThe fact that Furious 7 is messier than any of the past installments is more than mitigated by its grandeur. "Dom, cars don't fly! Cars don't fly!" Brian yells before its biggest stunt. Furious 7 makes you believe they can.
4/6/2015 by Richard BrodyThe director, James Wan, sends cars repeatedly airborne and seems himself to marvel at the results; the movie's real subject is the stunt work, but its stars' authentic chemistry lends melody to its relentless beat.
4/5/2015 by Mark JenkinsAs zippy, playful and amiably preposterous as the best of the previous models.
4/4/2015 by Richard Roeper"Furious 7" could have come across as ghoulish, but it's not until the very end that we're reminded of Walker's fate, and the filmmakers handle it with taste and respect.
4/3/2015 by Wesley MorrisWho would have thought that a series addicted to the high of movement could also summon a solemnity that leaves you moved?

4/3/2015 by Peter RainerThe only grace note in this otherwise determinedly graceless movie is the classy way Walker's exit is handled. To say more is to say too much.

4/3/2015 by David EdelsteinFurious 7 kicks the biggest and hardest, but it's far from the best.
4/3/2015 by Odie HendersonThis is an immensely entertaining movie, and if the filmmakers are wise, they'll quit on this high note.
Globe and Mail
4/3/2015 by John SemleyIt's all entertaining enough, I suppose. But there's a twisted coldness under the action that's anxiously concealed by the characters' refrains of the importance of "family" and sticking together and other ostensibly nice stuff.
4/3/2015 by Adam GrahamThe real stars of these films are the bonkers action setpieces, and "Furious 7" achieves new high points in that department.
4/3/2015 by Molly EichelIt's all dumb, but it's wonderfully, comfortably dumb in just the right way.
San Diego Reader
4/2/2015 by Matthew LickonaWhat transpires is grimmer than what's come before, and without the sense of fun, the absurdity of the action becomes less enjoyable.
4/2/2015 by Peter HowellA remarkably satisfying and entertaining action movie, one of the best in the series. Put your brain in neutral and enjoy the ride.
4/2/2015 by Tom RussoThe movie doesn't hold together as well as the previous chapter, but that's really a function of expanding the cast still further.
4/2/2015 by James BerardinelliFurious Seven provides what viewers have come to expect from the long-running The Fast and the Furious series: a string of high-octane, physics-defying action scenes loosely connected by a narrative that occasionally makes rudimentary sense.
Wall Street Journal
4/2/2015 by Joe MorgensternThe film follows an exceedingly well-traveled road, though the formula-a crew of racer-adventurers who put dual premiums on speed and family values-has been spiked with ever more spectacular, or preposterous, effects.
The New Republic
4/2/2015 by Elaine TengFor a franchise known for cheesy, heavy-handed lines, Furious 7 served up a classy, heartbreaking send-off for its departed star, one that acknowledged the tragedy of real life without allowing it to overwhelm the fictional world.
4/2/2015 by Ben SachsThe story takes place in LA, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, and the Caucasus Mountains, yet Wan has so few ideas about how to choreograph and edit action that the elaborate stunt sequences all feel exactly the same.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
4/2/2015 by Joe WilliamsThe grunted catch-phrases, the implausible escapes, the plot holes the size of the Bonneville Salt Flats - it's all pitched at a particular audience like a dog whistle that fully grown humans can't hear.
4/2/2015 by Chris NashawatyAt this rate, the next chapter will have to take place in outer space. Fast & Furious: Venusian Drift.
