I watched Furious 7 tonight. It was an excellent movie, and may possibly be my favorite one. But the thing that makes it my favorite isn’t the ridiculous scenes and high-octane action seen in every movie within the series, no. What makes this movie my favorite is the heartfelt way they honor Paul Walker. Many people may think it’s silly to be so upset at the death of a celebrity, or a tribute on film or even the end of a series but these movies were a huge part of my childhood. I was in my pre-teen years when the first one came out but since that first film, I’ve been a huge fan of these movies and they’ve molded me. Paul Walker became my hero. Even now, those who know me know my influences. They can see it in the car I drive and how I drive.
I teared up at the end of this movie and I’m not ashamed to say it.
Gone too soon.
