I always admire when a film's budget isn't even a question. Give an audience what they want and don't be cynical about it. I don't know how much Furious 7 cost, but with an opening take of $384 million Worldwide, I have to think this is a film where everyone earned and deserved their large paychecks, from the writing and directing, through the cast and stunt team and down through the marketing. Congratulations all around.
BTW, I haven't seen the film yet but considering the hype of the team going against Jason "Transporter" Statham, it's interesting that he hasn't been mentioned on much of the advertising.
