Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Dominic and his crew thought they'd left the criminal mercenary life behind. They'd defeated international terrorist Owen Shaw and went their separate ways. But now, Shaw's brother, Deckard Shaw, is out killing the crew one by one for revenge. Worse, a Somalian terrorist called Jakarde and a shady government official called "Mr. Nobody" are both competing to steal a computer terrorism program called "God's Eye," that can turn any technological device into a weapon. Torretto must reconvene with his team to stop Shaw and retrieve the God's Eye program while caught in a power struggle between the terrorist and the United States government.Written by
When Torreto gets cornered at the canyon with Ramsey and when Jakande comes out of his Chevrolet suburban, the director - wearing a yellow shirt - is reflected in the door. See more »
I do know you, Dom, which is why now I give you the brother to brother answer. You do whatever it is you gotta do. When you find that sumbitch, just do me one favor.

The 140-minute extended version of the film has the following additions:
No doubt the biggest addition is the longer opening sequence where Deckard narrates their shared past as children including him punished by their father for what Owen would steal. He also knew that Owen would end up in the current predicament despite being a gangster, smarter, better and being trained by him. It then continues to the theatrical-version's opening of laying the machine gun on Owen's chest before he leaves the hospital.
A different line when Deckard responds to Hobbs why he's in his office: "I don't care for your computer. I'm here for the team that crippled my brother."
The graveyard chase is slightly longer.
The number of punches, kicks and head butts between Letty and Kara is almost doubled.
The shootout at the warehouse is longer, especially it has Mr. Nobody killing a three more of Jakande's mercenaries.
so with fast 7 came the biggest budget yet but also the biggest anticipation yet and the acting did not disappoint. The chemistry between the actors was near perfect and the film flowed well thanks to this. The use of Jason statham could have been better and Dwayne Johnson was also widely underused. The fighting scenes did become a little too fast at times to understand what they were doing and this scores against the film.
Getting into the story and we know its going to be about furious toretto and fast cars but the story seemed a little lost sometimes in the need for more action and you find yourself thinking what is the need for this, a simple story got made complicated for no reason.
Let me be honest, this film looked astonishing in what they pulled off, some of the scenes were edge of your seat fingernail biting worthy, this film is not about realism, its about coolness and the way some sciences played out were breathtaking.
So overall this film has amazing acting, breathtaking scenes and offers you with amazing entertainment, definitely worth your money
