A key principle to the Fast & Furious series has been “family”. The sheer length of the series has made this equally true for the cast and crew themselves. In the middle of filming Furious 7, that cast & crew suffered the tragedy of the untimely passing of Paul Walker. With the cast in shock and filming delayed, the production of the film was in serious jeopardy. However, with heavy hearts the cast and crew decided to finish the film in honor of Paul. This resulted in a movie that delivers upon the expectation of the franchise but succeeds in being more. It succeeds in being a heart felt tribute and good bye to Paul Walker.
