Another (mostly) electrifying instalment.

The Fate of the Furious is now rolling out in cinemas around the world, and looks set to be a stonking box office success regardless of what the critics think.

That said, reviews so far are mostly positive and fairly consistent with what audiences have come to expect from the series since its radical reinvention with 2011's Fast Five.

Is the eighth movie the pinnacle of the series to this point? Absolutely not. But is it a ton of fun and a more-than-worthy addition to the franchise? Without question.

Going by those insane box office projections you're probably going to see it regardless, but here's what worked and what didn't in Furious 8.
