Fast and Furious: The Robin Hoods of Modern Times

Meeting timeCRNSession
Wednesdays 11:15AM-1:15PM 25564First

If you are a “gear head,” this class is for you. We will watch the “Fast and Furious” movies, including “Furious 7” that was released in April of 2015, and discuss how they relate to society. Can “bad guys” have a code of honor that they will not cross? Can “bad guys” do good things? Can an “outlaw” be a hero? How important is family? We will discuss the ramification to society.
