FAST AND FURIOUS 8 is the latest addition to the US action franchise, in which Dom is drawn back into the world of crime by a high-tech criminal called Cipher.

Violence

Scenes of moderate violence include fights with crunchy punches, kicks and head-butts, as well as un-detailed shoot-outs. Other moments include men being tasered down.

Language

There is infrequent strong language including 'f**k' and an unfinished use of 'mother**ker'. Milder terms include 'bitch', 'wanker', 'son-of-a-bitch', 'bullshit', 'shit', 'damn', 'arse', 'asshole', 'goddamn' and 'bloody'.

There are mild sex references throughout, and a reference to cars being seized from drug dealers.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally seen for advice. The company was informed it was likely to be classified 15 uncut but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by reducing one scene of violence. When the film was submitted for formal classification, that moment of violence had been acceptably reduced and the film was classified 12A.
