Qatar & Fast & Furious 7 – Been There Done That – Sort Of!!!

Netflix in Qatar is pretty selective.  So when number 7 of all the Fast & Furious movies is approved….I take notice….

Especially when the franchise has a journey to the Middle East!  Abu Dhabi….. but hey….if you look closely…..Qatar is red flagged!!  Very cool!!

Screen shot of the location of where the good guys are looking to find the bad guy who is somewhere in the UAE…and Qatar is colored to stand out!!

So in my excitement of being able to relate to locations in a movie……I had a bit of fun taking more screen shots!!

Yup, this is what typical streets look like, off the main highway in Qatar.  Now the movie location is in Abu Dhabi, but hey, every day when I drive to work, strip malls like this are the norm.

Pink Palaces/Hotels are the norm here in Qatar.  But in Qatar, women in bikinis are only found at the beach – not strolling in the parking lot!!

Pink Palace in Qatar – Marsa Malaz Kempinski The Pearl – Doha

Real life in Doha!
Real life in Doha!!

As the lead characters drove/ flew through the Etihad Towers, seems they wiped out some rather priceless art…..good thing I was able to see the real thing in Doha!!!

  3. Hey! How did that happen? Did someone upload the picture there or did a computer program do that and didn’t realize it was a screen shot and so the reference to artificial stupidity? Or maybe I’m the artificial stupid one? Maybe I should have clarified that it is a screen shot of a movie that is happening in that moment in the UAE and that the hotel in the background seems pink like the Kempinski in Qatar – that is why I captured the image – for comparison.
    It is funny that that picture was posted to be a picture of Qatar….when it is so not!
