David ehrlich on IndieWire:
… this franchise can never reach the good level it was with some of its previous films …
John DeFore on The Hollywood Reporter:
… it’s hard to see how this franchise could outperform itself, and based on the boring and over the top results of this movie, it seems silly to give it a go.
Owen gleiberman on Variety:
This installment is not built around an exciting mission. This franchise didn’t need any more “heart”. He needed everyone on screen to catch up.
Tim grierson on ScreenDaily:
This movie is fueled by its own goofy energy, offering comically great chase sequences and fanservice, all in the name of giving audiences a hassle-free good time.
Alonso Duralde on TheWrap:
Physics, gravity, and logic in general have long been thrown out the window, but the moments of pleasure are still present.
Erick davis on Fandango:
Massive and memorable action sequences with a lot of humor, heart, family drama … The most fans of this series will love all the nods to the previous films.
Courtney howard on Fresh Fiction:
It’s great fun. Bombastic, cheeky, bold.
Molly freeman on ScreenRant:
…It’s very funny. The action feels fresh and innovative …
Mike reyes on CinemaBlend:
The action is still pure adrenaline and the story reaches an emotional depth.
Joel meares on Rotten Tomatoes:
This movie had me smiling like a straight man at a sports convention. Winks from the first and second movies are included.
