Discover the first reviews of the film:

“Those who are already steeped in the franchise’s lore will appreciate the care that ‘The Fast and Furious 9’ has given to supporting characters, including some whose return to storytelling is sure to bring cheers in crowded theaters. But some of that fan service ends up looking forced. Either way, the movie makes us feel like the franchise has already lost its creativity and uniqueness. – Daily screen.

“Like in Lin’s last film, the disappointing ‘Star Trek: Without Borders’, the director takes a quantitative rather than qualitative approach, there is more action, more subplots and a lot of characters in the mix. More than any movie needs. Still, ‘The Fast and the Furious 9’ leaves the feeling that something is missing. The maximalist strategy does not allow the plot to develop the relationship between Dom and his brother. – The Hollywood reporter.

“Sometimes, when you least expect it, a successful franchise essentially turns into something different. Over time, “Mission Impossible” became similar to “007”, and “The Fast and the Furious” became “Mission Impossible”. But ‘Fast and Furious 9′ is not built around an exciting mission. It is built around Vin Diesel and John Cena who live through the anguish of the Toretto brothers’ past. The family story “works” (although you know how badly Cena’s character is written), but it’s not enough to sustain the film; it’s more like an excuse. The truth is, this franchise didn’t need more excitement. – Variety.

Enjoy watching:

“This is by far the biggest, craziest and toughest in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise (one scene at the end is sure to wow you at the silly daring of some characters), the direction of [Justin] Lin and Daniel Casey’s script is able to take action to ridiculously satisfying levels, and it all pays off when we dive into the character of Dom, on a more personal level than the franchise has ever achieved before. . – IndieWire

“For audiences who want to come back to the movies in 2021 with a big, noisy and exciting show, ‘The Fast and the Furious 9’ makes cars go fast, jump high and generally do the impossible. It’s extremely whimsical, yes, but it’s also ridiculously stimulating if you need a hobby. – The Envelope.
