Fast And Furious 9 sees Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) going up against his ultimate enemy… again, and this time it’s his brother, Jacob (John Cena – The Wall). Why? No-one really needs to care, but below is a synopsis, but first, note that Charlize Theron returns as Cipher – when her character should’ve been done and dusted in Fast And Furious 8, but so does Helen Mirren, who is Jason Statham’s mum, and his character is noticeable absent as is Dwayne Johnson, following their rather lacklustre 2019 spin-off, Hobbs And Shaw.
Okay, synopsis time…
No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past.
Summer 2020 is the time for F9, the ninth chapter in the saga that has endured for almost two decades and has earned more than $5 billion around the world.
Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob. (John Cena).
I’d never seen one of these movies before No.8, and loved it. It was more ‘James Bond’ than any of Daniel Craig’s Bond movies, and this one looks even more madcap, especially with the ‘car swinging’ late on in this trailer! Can’t wait to see it on the big screen!
