Director: Vinu Vinod Chopra
Cast: Vincent D’Onofrio, Anton Yelchin, Chris Marquette
The film is a tale of bromance focussing on older brother Buddy (Marquette) who joins a gang while the younger one, Jacob (Yelchin) is sent to New York to study. When Jacob returns after many years, he realises Buddy has been working with mobs. And when an assassination goes wrong, the brothers must fight for each other. While the plot fails in the cowboy setting, Chopra’s noir style comes through, in what is a luke warm film.

Fast & Furious 7
Director: James Wan
Cast: Jason Statham, Paul
Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris
After defeating Owen Shaw, Dominic (Diesel), Brian (Walker), and the gang are able to return to the United States. However, Deckard Shaw (Statham) seeks revenge against Dom and his family for his comatose brother.

A fitting tribute to the late Paul Walker, the last several minutes will bring on the emotion with his brothers filling in as Brian.
