The Weekender: ‘Furious’ Vengeance

Movie of the Week

Furious 7
This is the story of a franchise that figured out how to play up its camp and entertainment value, and further the careers of a diverse cast that didn’t have anywhere else to go. James Wan (The Conjuring) steps into the director’s chair for an installment that takes the crew to the Middle East to compete in the poorly named Race Wars.
