A long-awaited release now emerges closer to us as Fast and Furious 9 sets the theatres up for some miraculous action. After the necessary delay of the movie last year, due to the pandemic, the fans had to contain the excitement for Dominic Toretto and the family to return for another mission.
There have been talks about the long-living franchise and how after many years of its initial establishment, there have been some defining characters and moving events through the movies that have given shape to what the franchise stands for today. It is no doubt that after F8 original installments, and a spin-off, the Fast & Furious series has begged serious critical claim and has left the audience in awe of the storyline and its progression.
It now comes down to the new movie, which includes the unforgettable ensemble of Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, and Nathalie Emmanuel. These few actors have now stood through a major part of the franchise and have been deemed as fan favorites on a global scale. From teenagers and young adults and going up till the elderly, there has been an eternal feeling created for everyone. Fast and Furious 9 is set to hit theatres by the end of June.
Welcome, Jakob Toretto!
Adding on the ensemble is another renowned celebrity, one of the best of his time, and deemed to be one of the legends of the WWE Raw and Smackdown arenas, it is none other than John Cena, who has now step foot in the Fast and Furious universe as Dominic Toretto’s diabolical brother, partnering up alongside with a former antagonist of the series, Cipher, which has been respectively portrayed by the Academy-Award winning Charlize Theron.
As time speaks for itself, John Cena has diversified himself like many other WWE superstars and has also been welcomed graciously into the Hollywood industry as a big name. With some intense action projects like 12 Rounds and The Marine, John Cena has really made a name for himself in the industry and has come across as sweet, humble, and hardworking.
It is safe to say that this time, you may be able to see John Cena if you know what that means. After recruiting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is now considered to be one of the most billable stars in all of Hollywood as Agent Luke Hobbs, the makers of the franchise has now decided to take in John Cena for this adventure of the family. In all honesty, this movie is definitely going to portray a star-studded performance all around the globe, as the events of the last film had left us on some pretty gripping cliffhangers.
The Return Of Han
After the events of Tokyo, the audience was left in complete shock as to how Deckard Shaw was responsible for the death of Han, which was caused by a tragic car collision in the streets of Tokyo. After losing Giselle, Han felt like going back to Tokyo was the only thing left for him to do. As the franchise progressed, none of the fans had the slightest clue that the events of Tokyo Drift would be directly connected right after the 7th movie.
It was shown that Han’s funeral was held for good and his character would depart from the series. But after the trailers, the audience has been left in complete shock as Han makes the surprise entrance and it looks like the character has been resurrected from the dead.
Han, like many others, has always been a fan favorite. What he brings to the table is a sense of calm and bravado like no other. Especially in the latest franchises where he has made close connections with all the members of the group, even including people such as Tej Parker and Roman Pearce, we would definitely love to see how this love only gets more intense. All thanks to Sung Kang, we now welcome back Han with open hands and we are all impatient to know how he got back. Let’s wait and watch.
Defining the Action!
In all the time that Fast and Furious has been around, the movie has built a reputation for getting some of the fastest and most savvy cars that a series can portray. For years and years, cars like the Lykan Hypersport, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan GTR Skyline, and many others have made appearances and it only keeps getting better over time. The action along with these cars has been taking along to unimaginable heights, literally. From driving cars out of an airplane to jumping one car through multiple buildings, the series has given us action like never before.
But even after all this action, there has been certain feedback from the fans which claims that the sole purpose for which Fast & Furious initially stood for, was the racing. When the first few movies came out, the sole objective was not just getting missions done and saving people, but yet it included the exciting element of racing. And that is something that has been deteriorating with each and every movie, as the new releases come by.
Many fans still crave the races and do give their humble feedbacks to base the storyline around more of a racing theme. The sole purpose of the movie is not just holding missions and taking down some vicious enemies, but also to give the fans what they demand the most, to race. As long as the franchise does continue to make more installments, it is only better if they continue to include more races just like it was originally planned before.
It would definitely uplift the spirits of the fans and let them know about the original feeling of what the franchise actually aimed for in the first place. Other than that, the action has been undeniably fantastic, and more than that has been creative in ways no one imagined. The best point about all movies is that they never fail to keep the audience on edge and immerse them in a feeling of intense automobile action.
In The End
It all comes down to the fact that the fans cannot wait any longer for the movie to hit theatres and immerse themselves in an experience like never before. Through the long-living name of the series, audiences across the world have now fallen in love with these characters like a family. The movie not just displays action and adventure, but leans towards the more interconnected feeling of a family. After the demise of Paul Walker, the family has grown stronger in spirit to entertain the audience even more. We hope that the love for the series remains the same. Buckle up! F9 hits theatres this month!
