Poll: Do We Really Need Furious 8?

After Paul Walker’s tragic death over a year ago, the future of the Fast & Furious franchise was temporarily up in the air.

Furious 7 wasn’t quite complete so they had to use Walker’s brothers and some CGI to finish the movie.

It would then go on to make over a billion dollars worldwide and become one of the biggest movies of all time.

It’s pretty obvious that a Furious 8 was always going to happen but after revisiting Furious 7 on Blu-ray it’s hard to to justify it after everything was wrapped up so well. Paul Walker got a fitting send off and the story is essentially done.

Hell, the tagline for the movie is “One Last Ride” so you’d think that the classy thing to do would be to just end it. Then add to the equation that both James Wan and Justin Lin are not interested in returning to the franchise as directors and you have to wonder is a Fast and Furious 8 really necessary?

Of course it will still happen and will make another billion most likely but personally I would leave it with Furious 7 as a nice send off for Paul Walker.

What do you all think? Should there be Fast and Furious 8? Or is it the right time to put the brakes on?
