The final installment of the Fast and Furious franchise titled Furious 7 hits theaters in the United States of America on April 3, 2015, and the makers have left no stone unturned to ensure a blockbuster ending. The film has an additional emotional angle to it due to the unfortunate demise of Paul Walker in a car accident. The film is loaded with a number of car chase sequences and judging by the trailers, James Wan has put his best into the Fast and Furious 7.

Though the film promises to be a complete joyride for fans, some sequences are worth watching out for. The makers of Fast 7 have done excellent promotion by releasing behind the scenes footages from the film’s shooting. One of the best chases in the film looks to be the one shot throughout the Abu Dhabi desert. To make the scene more action packed and exciting, camels and helicopters have been used as well. Another scene will see one of the cast members involved in a chase with a bus as well. Not only this, some amazing cars have been used in the making of this film, such as Aston Martin DB9, 2011 Bugatti Veyron, 1970 Dodge Charger R/T and 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia.

There has been a lot of build up around Furious 7 ever since the sixth film ended. The introduction of actor Jason Statham aroused great interest and excitement among fans of the franchise across the world. Unfortunately, the film franchise lost one of its protagonists, Paul Walker, in a car crash. The cast, including Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson, has worked endlessly to ensure that the last film is a superb success.

Though the film is deemed to be a superb success at the box office, it is not likely to get any love from the Academy. Speaking on this in an interview to Yahoo! news, Vin Diesel said, "Do I shy away from aiming high? No, I don't. And yet we all know that there's a little stigma towards action films, we know it, we've heard people complain about it, we've heard Marvel complain about it, we've heard DC complain about it, and now Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Batman has never gotten a shot at that."
