This has been a fascinating year for all the Fast and Furious fans around the world. With Dom and the team taking on Dom’s brother, Jakob, and known cyberterrorist, Cipher, the game just got more complicated. There has been a lot of action at play. And to be honest, some events have taken a turn that shocked fans to their very core. So let us what F9 did to us. We want to see the possibilities that the new movie has opened up for us.
The gang, although it has not changed. They are back with the original flame. Although, some new characters have made some great introductions, and possibly some of them have reprised their roles from the previous movies. Nonetheless, it is a surprise to witness from all four corners!
Jakob, the evil Toretto
This movie served as an honour to a new character: Jakob Toretto, the evil twin of none other than Dominic Toretto. The film starts with the flashback of Dominic and Jakob at a young time. At that point, they wanted to be in a race with their father as part of a pit crew. Their father’s name was Jack. Unfortunately, Jack was up against a racer who didn’t have the cleanest ideas. Kenny Linder, a man with a bag full of tricks, was terrible news to the party.
Linder’s cap bump was now in click with Jack’s, and that caused the car to hit a wall and then explode. This eventually led to Jack’s death. After this incident, Linder had an offset beat out with Dom, which led to Dom spending time in prison. Dom served his sentence. While he came out of jail, he remembered that Jakob had worked on Jack’s car on his death, which meant that Jakob killed their father. In light of this vengeance, Dom challenged Jakob to a race, upon which if he loses, he has to leave town.
This gave birth to two brothers separated by a great tragedy. Now, Jakob is on the other side of the table, fighting Dom and showing him the better Toretto. But, for that, he has been in arms with Cipher.
The kick-off of F9
After beating Cypher and his gang, Dom went on a long and then eventually retired from the fight. He raised his son, Brian, along with his wife, Letty. Then, all of a sudden, while the good life goes on, a fire is lit. A fire that causes Dom to get out of retirement once again.
Now enter Roman Pearce, Tej Parker, and Ramsey, the good old trio we can never forget. They come bearing the news that Mr. Nobody has captured Cipher. Cypher’s plane was crashed, and along with that, a unique device named Ares can hack into any computer-controlled system in the world. It’s safe to say that this one may be better than God’s Eye. Dom now realizes that partnered with Cipher is his big bad brother, Jakob. Jakob is now also partnered up with an associate of his, who goes by the name of Otto.
As soon as all of this happens, Dom brings the team back into action and takes matters into his own hands. But along with the original group, there are some new additions and some ultimately surprising comebacks! Let’s take a look.
The cast and some wild comebacks!
Of course, we had to mention some of the most fantastic cast members of the game. The original stars are back to raise some more anarchy. Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez, and Nathalie Emmanuel are back for their leading roles! It is once again Dom, Roman, Tej, Ramsey, and Letty!
Along with the originals, another member joining back is Dom’s living sister, Mia, which is once again reprised by none other than Jordana Brewster. She has come out of retirement while Brian raises the kids. Unfortunately, she is nowhere to help Dom.
We’ve already been introduced to the man of the hour, John Cena, who is here to give us the best entertainment. He has been partnered up with Charlize Theron to become the main antagonist of this movie!
Some good surprises came out! For one, we had Lucas Black in some impressive cameos as he came back as Sean Boswell from Tokyo Drift. The legendary Helen Miren also comes back as Queenie, mother to the Shaw brothers, once again helping Dominic.
With that, stars like Cardi B have also made an appearance as Leysa. Finally, Kurt Russell comes back as the lovable boss, Mr. Nobody. He has been such positive reviews for his work in the franchise over the past few years! Jason Statham also makes an uncredited performance as Deckard Shaw in the final cameos.
And for the biggest comeback of all time, we have Sung Kang, who returns as Han. Han’s death is explained through the eyewitness of Deckard Shaw, the man who crashed his car in the first place. Shaw now goes to Tokyo to see that Han has a ward named Elle. In light of this, Shaw confesses how Han has been alive to keep the safety of Elle. So Han was never dead indeed!
Will there be the 10th film?
Not to spread any false news, but there have been reports that the creators are now looking forward to the 10th part of the film series. It looks like Dom and the gang will come back for more action. Fortunately for the fans, Dom always comes out of retirement. It is not a one-time thing. It looks like the family will come back for more.
Along with, the one director who has made multiple returns now and then is Justin Lin. He has directed more Fast & Furious movies than anyone till now. And for the 10th movie, it is rumored that he will come back as director. However, these rumors have not been confirmed as the 9th movie still plays in theatres.
But while this movie has been released, it opens up many possibilities for the next film. And this is a question to ask as to how long the franchise will go on. Not that we are complaining. But it is fantastic to see how a few movie franchises like this one have stood the test of time. It’s been precisely two long decades since the Fast family has been around. There have people who come and gone. And now, some people are staying as keepers. So we can only expect more from the next movie. Fast & Furious has hit theatres all across the country. Get yourself the best of the best!
