Finally, being able to rent Fate of the Furious this week, I sat down to eagerly learn their… fate. While much has already been said about the absurdity surrounding the eighth instalment of the franchise, there is one major issue that no one seems to be addressing; WHAT IS WITH THE HANDHELD WALKIE TALKIES?
Aside from portraying a visual that makes the whole thing seem dated back to the VHS era, they plain make no sense. Are you putting it down every time you need to shift or hit the NOS or fire a missile? Is there just a loose walkie floating around in the passenger seat next to them 90% of the time? Or during these crazy driving scenes are we just to accept that Tyrese has a walkie jammed between his legs? All of this could be solved by a headset like in every other action movie of the modern era.
