F9: An action-packed spectacle with little substance
I have been a fan of the Fast and Furious movie series since the beginning. But as time progressed, I found the movie’s action sequences over-the-top and the storytelling repetitive, following the same cliches and tropes. So, when I saw the trailer of the latest installment F9 a couple of years ago, I wasn’t very excited. However, when it was recently released on Netflix, I decided to give it a go, just for the sake of the good old times. F9 is just another road rage of a movie with the same people doing the same things, but this time taking the action sequences over the top. The stunts are so ridiculous that even my six-year-old son can’t conceive them when playing with his Hot Wheels collection. But none of the directors of the Fast and Furious franchise believe so, and director Justin Lin takes the car chases and action sequences to another level with an ensemble cast of some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and WWE. Vin Diesel reprises his iconic role as Dominic Toretto in this movie that showcases his family drama and history. Wrestling legend John Cena plays Jakob, his estranged brother, and arch nemesis in the movie. The plot follows Dom and his team as they try to retrieve a powerful device named Project Aries that can hack into any computer-controlled system, while also dealing with Jakob and a private army.

There is not much to write about the movie besides its action sequences, cinematography, and visual effects. Despite having an ensemble cast of actors and a family drama to portray, there’s not much feeling put into any of the characters. Their dialogues just fly by at high speed while the audience is taken for a spin through traffic every once in a while.

Maybe as a fan of the first few movies in the series, I was expecting a bit too much. But I’m just sad to see that I grew up emotionally while the movie series kicks out every bit of emotion from it. Still, it’s not a bad watch at all if you love all-out action movies. F9 is just an action-packed film that will satisfy fans of the franchise with its over-the-top stunts and action sequences. However, if you’re looking for an emotionally engaging and character-driven story, you might be disappointed. But if you are a die-hard fan of the Fast and Furious franchise, then F9 is a must-watch for you. The movie delivers on the over-the-top action, fast cars, and the ensemble cast that has become synonymous with the series. If you are a fan of action movies in general and don’t mind some moments of disbelief, then F9 can be an entertaining watch. The action sequences are impressive and there’s never a dull moment in the film. However, if you are looking for a well-rounded and emotionally engaging story, then F9 might not be for you. The plot is paper-thin, and the characters lack depth, making it difficult to invest in their struggles. Who should watch it? Overall, F9 is a mindless action movie that delivers on its promise of high-octane entertainment. If that’s what you’re looking for, then grab some popcorn and buckle up for a wild ride.
