The Fast & Furious franchise has become famous for anything over the years (other than family), it's the series' abrupt left turn from a somewhat grounded illegal street racing plot to a straight-up superhero film series in which Dominic Toretto and his ever-growing list of foes take the reigns.
It's best to avoid (pun is absolutely intended here) adolescent action fun that it is — and that is exactly the sentiment that has been expressed on Twitter in the days since the Fast X trailer was released, and in the aftermath of the Super Bowl commercial.
We must naturally progress from there, starting with the completely implausible demonstrations of strength introduced in Fast & Furious 6. When Dom leapt from a moving vehicle across a freeway, caught Letty, and landed on a stationary vehicle in the oncoming lane.
Jakob Toretto (John Cena) is slamming through a hardwood floor, newcomer Tess (Brie Larson) is slamming everyone in her vicinity, and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher (Charlize Theron) are all just yelling at each other:
With Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) doing a poor mono then a 360 degree bunny hop over a barrier, we've got the absolute batcrap vehicle acrobatics:
We have an inanimate object wreaking havoc all over an unsuspecting city, much like in Fast Five's safe extraction scene.
And last but not least, another time we see Dom's Dodge Charger demonstrate its unlimitable power by clapping two attack helicopters together like bread:
All of the ingredients for the Fast & Furious films since the early 2000s have been established, and now we're waiting on Jason Momoa to become another of Dom's foes, and for the crew to go time-traveling now that they've already been in space.
On May 19, 2023, Fast X will be released in cinemas.
