Fast & Furious 9 review – Vin Diesel and crew kick Isaac Newton’s ass

The gang are back for another bout of deafening and magnificently silly, gravity-defying action, leaving plot logic in the dust and driving their cars into spaceAfter nine films, the gigantic steroidal humungousness of the Fast and Furious franchise has finally rolled over me like a tank. This deafening fantasia of internal and external combustion delivers outrageous action spectacle magnificently divorced from the rules of narrative or gravity. There is one shot of a car driving up the far side...

F9 is finally blasting into theaters this week after more than a year-long delay due to COVID-19.

The Vin Diesel/Dwayne Johnson Feud Reignites as Diesel Takes Credit for Johnson’s Acting

It wouldn’t be a modern Fast and Furious press tour without the scent of feud permeating the air. Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, who have repeatedly and publicly clashed while making these high-octane action movies, are seemingly at it again, with Diesel reigniting the feud by claiming his behavior was actually just a manipulation tactic all along, implemented in order to coax out the performance he wanted from Johnson. (And no, he does not seem to be joking.) In a new Men’s Health profile, i...

‘The Fast and the Furious’ Turns 20 Today – Take a Look Back at the Franchise With New Featurettes

To quote the great street racer Dominic Toretto: “It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile: winning’s winning.” And “winning” is exactly what the Fast and Furious franchise has done for two decades. Today marks the twentieth anniversary of 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, the film that launched one of the most unlikely and arguably the most important global franchises in cinematic history, and Universal is celebrating one of its crown jewels with a pair of brand new featurettes.

‘F9’ Director Justin Lin on Returning to the Series and How You Top a Rocket Car [Interview]

When Justin Lin was directing 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, the idea of bringing the action series to an end was a pipe dream. Lin was preparing to exit the Fast and Furious franchise, moving on to direct a Star Trek film and episodes of prestige TV like True Detective, and the concept of bringing the Fast and Furious movies to a satisfying close was something better suited to casual chatter with star Vin Diesel, not something that was actually on the table. Cut to nine years later, and Lin is prepa...

QOTD: Too Fast, Too Furious?

The Fast and Furious franchise is apparently coming to an end, at least in terms of movies that feature the main cast (who knows what other content there will be, in terms of video games or spinoffs, et cetera).

‘F9’ Director Justin Lin on the Stunt That Was Too Crazy (And Too Expensive) to Make It Into the Movie

For the Fast and Furious franchise, the sky is the limit. Quite literally in F9, a spectacle-filled action sequel in which just one of the many wild action scenes involves sending a car up to space. But director and co-writer Justin Lin — returning to the franchise after eight years away — found that even the sky has limits.

‘F9’ to Play at the Cannes Film Festival, Finally Establishing the Series as a True Work of Art

We did it, boys. Living life a quarter mile at a time has finally brought us to the finish line: the Cannes Film Festival. A film festival so prestigious that women are forced to wear heels at screenings, Cannes has always been upheld as the pinnacle of the festival circuit, awarding all-time classics like Parasite, Apocalypse Now, and more.

‘F9’ Review: The ‘Fast and Furious’ Franchise Reaches New Heights of Absurdity

The Fast and Furious franchise has never cared about staying grounded. Even the scrappy 2001 original hovered an inch or two off the streets it burnt up every night with cans of NOS. But F9, the latest installment in the streetracing-turned-spy-heist series, does pose the question: how high is too high? Director Justin Lin, who makes a glorious return to Fast and Furious after stepping away from the franchise following Fast & Furious 6, hasn’t found that ceiling yet. And lord help us if he ever...
