F9 (or Fast and Furious 9) was released in the theatres of South Korea and Hong Kong recently. It is scheduled for a June release in the US and India. This, of course, will rely on the COVID-19 situation. So, reviews are in for this ninth part of the gravity-defying Fast & Furious franchise. Many questions pondering- is it worth the hype or it is a failure? We are here with the answers.
Do fans wonder if it’s the most bizarre F&F movie yet?
Enthusiastic fans of the franchise were wishing that that series could return to being about cars doing things that could (possibly?) be emulated. But Fast and Furious 9 is sending cars into space, leaving many wondering if it’s the most ridiculous F&F movie yet. In this light, director Justin Lin’s endeavors to turn a semi-grounded fiction about illegal street racers…into a bonafide cinematic universe.
VIN DIESEL AND JOHN CENA – STANDING ON EXPECTATIONS
F9 has Vin Diesel and John Cena as long-lost brothers, Dominic “Dom” and Jakob Toretto, respectively, who duke it out, and fans are here for it! To the relief, they do not disappoint. Diesel and Cena are amazing. Tyrese (Gibson as Roman Pearce) is the stealth MVP (Most Valuable Player). It’s a clamor car-crunching confusion. Plenty of gas left in the tank, critic Courtney Howard said.
The much-awaited comeback of Han and Mia
Now, death is hardly final in this crazy franchise, and Fast and Furious 9 lives statement to that. It, after all, brought back the beloved Han from the Tokyo Drift film. But, the script scarcely does him justice. However, fans still found him just as cool and funny as the prior films. Dom’s sister Mia, last seen in the 2015 film Fast and Furious 7, returns as well.
Fast and Furious – The highest-grossing franchise
To note, the Fast and Furious franchise is one of the highest-grossing film series ever with collective earnings of around $6 billion at the box office around the globe. Allotted by Universal Pictures, it also motivated a spin-off called Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which was released in 2019 and burned cash registers. The Fast Saga will finally put up the ultimate fraction with the yet-untitled eleventh film.
