Furious 7, in memory of Paul Walker.

11 Apr

Jeremy and I had a movie date night together after not catching a movie for a while, and he decided on Furious 7.

The feels were really strong, especially in light of the fact that Paul Walker’s very untimely death was right smack in the middle of filming Fast and Furious 7 back in 2013. His presence in the movie doubly highlighted the fact that the Fast and Furious series will never ever be the same without him 😥

I’m not an overly huge fan of Paul Walker, but his acting is enough for me to be convinced of his legacy in the series because his role as Brian O’Conner is a very significant one, right from the first movie. It really can’t be denied that his acting is actually really quite good, and his death came as a great shock too because I had watched some of the movies in the Fast and Furious series before in the past. Not to mention that he’s the co-lead alongside Vin Diesel right from day one, and with their partnership and friendship on and off screen very strong too, it makes the impact of his death felt very strongly in the last scene of Furious 7.

The last song in the original motion soundtrack for the movie is enough to set the waterworks off – so much that at the end of the movie when the words ‘For Paul’ appeared on screen, I nearly cried and I heard someone behind me sniffle too 😦 Just 2 words, but the meaning behind is so poignant.
And to all who’re wondering if the movie is worth the watch, I’d say it’s a yes.

The lyrics to the soundtrack are a very fitting tribute to Paul Walker.

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn who knew all the planes we flew
Good things we’ve been through
That I’ll be standing right here
Talking to you about another path
I k
now we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up look at things different see the bigger picture
Those were the days hard work forever pays now I see you in a better place

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
when I see you again

First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong and what’s
Small turn to a friendship a friendship
Turn into a bond and that bond will never
Be broke and the love will never get lost
And when brotherhood come first then the line
Will never be crossed established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn and that line is what
We reach so remember me when I’m gone

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

So let the light guide your way hold every memory
As you go and every road you take will always lead you home

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again
