The Fate Of The Furious is a 2017 American action film directed by F. Gary Gray and starring Vin Diesel, Jason Statham & Dwayne Johnson. It is the eight installment in the Fast And The Furious series.W ith Dom and Letty married, Brian and Mia retired and the rest of the crew exonerated, the globe-trotting team has found some semblance of a normal life. They soon face an unexpected challenge when a mysterious woman named Cipher forces Dom to betray them all. Now, they must unite to bring home the man who made them a family and stop Cipher from unleashing chaos. The score is composed by Brian Tyler.
There have been many films about cars and action, but never a franchise such as this. And the difference between the latest movies and the series and the first ones are massive. It used to be about racing and cool cars, but now it’s a full blown action franchise featuring cars. The music has changed as well, but personally I have a soft spot for the first film with it’s more EDM like score. Most of the later films has been scored by Tyler and it’s always good fun, if somewhat similar fun. I don’t expect it to be any different this time. The score opens with the title cue ‘The Fate Of The Furious’, and some Spanish guitar and rhythm can’t disguise the true nature of the music which is pure adrenalin-filled action music. Tyler’s Fast And The Furious theme is present as it should be. I still enjoy it. The new bad “guy” ic Cipher, and the theme for her is a bit of a mysterious one, slow and tense, but a bit boring.
Despite all the fun action, I am still a bigger fan of Tyler’s guitar. It seems like a blast from the past when ‘Reunited plays’, like a mix of Bubba Ho-Tep and Battle Los Angeles. That’s very beautiful, and unless I’m mistaken, Letty’s theme is in here as well. I don’t think I need to tell you that not much has changed from the previous Fast & Furious scores and if that’s your thing, then you’ll likely love this one. I didn’t expect anything different, and although I like it quite a bit, I can’t really tell the difference between the scores. That sounds negative, but it’s all about managing expectations. This score lines up perfectly in the long line of F & F scores and that’s fine by me.
