When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.

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.
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.
The Fast and Furious franchise has followed a non-linear path, in terms of timelines, but Furious 7 (2015) finally provided some clarity as to when most of the films take place. Letty's tombstone, seen early in the film, shows the year of her supposed "death" as 2009, the year Fast & Furious (2009) was released in real life. Furthermore, after Letty's funeral in Fast & Furious (2009), Mia states to Brian that it had been five years since Brian first met her, Dom, and Letty, which sets the events in the first film in 2004. Mia discovers she is pregnant early on in Fast Five (2011), the lone film in the franchise to start off at the exact point where the previous film ended (with Brian and Mia breaking Dom out of a prison bus), so its events most likely took place circa 2010. Mia gives birth in the opening sequence of Fast & Furious 6 (2013), but the remainder of the film takes place afterwards when Brian and Mia's son, Jack, is roughly a year old. Consequently, it appears to be set around eighteen months later, likely in 2012. Jack has reached preschool age at the beginning of Furious 7 (2015), or roughly three years old, which places it circa 2014 (the film's original year of release, later changed after Paul Walker's death). This also means that The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) is set circa 2013-2014, since Han's (retconned) death in the film takes place immediately before Deckard Shaw calls Dom and blows up the Toretto house. Finally, an early scene references Dom's arrival in Tokyo at the end of "Tokyo Drift," which was for the purpose of bring home Han's casket, following his murder by Shaw. See more »
In the opening scene in the hospital, the location is the United Kingdom. Electrical outlets in the room (behind the bed) are those found in the United States. See more »
They say if you want to glimpse the future, just look behind you. I used to think that was bollocks. Now I realize... you can't outrun the past. When we were kids, you'd start fights with the toughest bastards in the yard. But I was the one who had to step in and finish them. You'd steal from the corner shop, but it was me who'd brave the old man's belt. I'd hope you'd outgrown it, that playing the gangster made you harder, smarter, better. But deep down, I guess I always knew you'd end up like...

I saw Furious 7 at a SXSW screening. The sudden death of Paul Walker shocked his fans and the people who were setting hopes for another F&F movie. Well, James Wan and his crew managed to pull it together using CGI and stunt doubles. I have to say, it was a bigger stake here than Furious 6, which felt more bang- bang than a GOOD movie. If you are looking for little story, more car chases, stupendous action and violence and hot babes, Furious 7 is your ticket. The scenes shot in Dubai are particularly spectacular, with lush resorts, exotic cars being driven off hotel rooftops and crashing into an art gallery, ah! What wonders F7 takes you to! You may know, James Wan from Insidious and Saw, and his crazy camera tricks are highlight here. But it comes with a little compromise, the acting, Diesel feels raw, while Rodriguez feels stale and bland. Walker is great, as usual (R.I.P) Tyrese Gibson is the worst, with his "cool guy" attitude and "bad boy" cliché character. Overall, this one last trip as Torretto calls it, is refreshing, bang on and full out spectacular. Furious 7 deserves to be watched.
