Not in 20 minutes in Fast and Furious 9, when Dom and Co move across a minefield and tries to deal with explosions, will you find that yes.
That’s what we’ve been waiting for.
Vin Diesel was the subject of some jovial gels on Twitter when he fell in love with “The Movie” during his recent Fast & Furious 9 promotions. However, there’s no doubt that this series, despite its ridiculous fame for the big screen and perhaps only the MCU, can pull it together for sheer scale.
The fact that Fast & Furious 9 doesn’t become one of the most critical points of the series is almost controversial. Nevertheless, its release signals that the blockbuster is finally back where it belongs, and it means any logic-defying stuntman will be as comfortable as a warm blanket.
Where is Fast & Furious 8’s main catch, “What if Dom collapses?” Fast & Furious 9 takes the “What if Dom has a long-lost sibling?” Of course, Dom (Diesel), who wanted some crowns with Jacob Toreto (John Cena). Couldn’t make a big blockbuster. So obviously Jacob had to be a little wrong.
Suppose this action sounds familiar to you.
At the latest show in the series, Dom and his crew always seem to be chasing MacGuffin technology. However, this time it’s “a very dangerous weapon that shouldn’t exist for another half a century,” says Schiffer (Charlize Theron).
Apart from the added wrinkle from its long-lost sibling, Fast & Furious 9 can feel a little out of date in the plot, especially with a few revealings that enhance the “be there, do this” feeling. However, there’s a fine line to give fans what they want and bring the old country back, and you want to be very concerned about making plots as creative as action freaks.
Even if, after a year of uncertainty, there is some benefit in entertaining knowledge. More than most other franchises, the “Fast and Furious” movies can feel like taking a walk with old friends, and F9 is sure to put together a repeat cast that stars throughout the series.
Defenders of Tokyo Drift will be thrilled, and it’s nice to think of newcomers:
To be confused by Shea Whigham’s recent performance. However, they exist primarily as fan service, along with a nod to the previous films. So if you want to make this film the introduction to your series, you won’t get lost completely.
Of course, the main cast will be Jordana Brewster’s Mia, who missed the final film, and Sung Kang’s Han, who allegedly died in Fast and Furious 6. The secret to how Han returns may not be entirely satisfying, and it’s regrettable. The rising of Skywalker echoes, “Somehow Palpatine is back”.
However, fans will forgive him for how great it is to see Khan again, and one can get emotional when he reunites with Dom.
Mia’s return is a lot easier to navigate for director Justin Lynn’s return:
But luckily, it’s not Mia who’s left on the sidelines in Fast and Furious 7. Instead, as Rodriguez previously praised. The female characters are drawn into the action. The film may sound familiar elsewhere, but it’s an improvement over the previous show.
John Cena didn’t do well as a significant newcomer to the Fast & Furious 9 cast. Not spending enough time on Jacob’s antagonistic relationship with Dom. That reveals why they broke up. Unfortunately, there aren’t any significant revelations here. So they’re there primarily to smooth out already improved performance times. And to show off the things Dom already talked about in the series.
However, the son tries to bend his sizeable chunk of action:
And no matter what flaws the film has with its plot, the action sequences go on. That says a lot as Jacob darts past Edinburgh. While Dom chases the rooftops, and it’s one of the best action rhythms in film.
Maybe if Fast & Furious 9 comes out in March 2020, if everything is “normal”. We’ll be more critical of the familiar plot. But delivering the cinematic adrenaline that’s been so lacking in the past year makes it easier to admit the fun.
With the two-part finale on the coming way (something made up for with a delicious credit scene here). We have no doubt the series could be revamped. And come up with something fresher for an epic conclusion. Welcome back to the Dom family. Nice to see you again.
