This is a must-watch movie, especially for long-time fans and followers of Fast and Furious. The ninth production sequel of the movie was to be released on May 21, 2020, but at the peak of the pandemic, Universal Studios postponed it by over a year to April 2021 and later rescheduled to May 28, 2021.
For the first time in the movie series, John Cena will be making an appearance in the role of Dom Toretto’s brother. Yes, that’s right, Vin Diesel’s brother is John Cena! There has to be someone who saw that coming right, and for the first time since 2013, Sung Kang, who supposedly died in the Tokyo Drift sequel, is back.
Justin Lin returning as the film director after the sixth movie, said the theme of family is what inspired the Fast and Furious 9. We are in for a whole new level of drama and an intense family feud between Dom and his brother Jakob played by John Cena.
After the events that transpired at ‘The Fate of the Furious’ in 2017, Cipher who is now planning his revenge on Dom recruits the help of Jakob to achieve his goal. It was possible for Cipher to form an alliance with Jakob because of an unresolved issue he has had with his brother Dom for a very long time, and family feuds, no doubt, are one of the most deadly to encounter.
In this new sequel to the Fate of the Furious, Dominique and the family now have to face his brother Jakob, a well-trained assassin. According to the movie trailer's popular quote, ‘No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past.’
Fans can be certain to see some amazing stunts as they have in the past and crazy fast cars. It’s important to see that those parts of the movie always get displayed even though the Fast and Furious movies have become more about the drama than the cars.
Many longtime fans of the movie sequels have been anticipating this part 9 and a lot of them were not big fans of the Hobbs and Shaw spin-off, which felt more like a delay to them. With the release of the last Fast and Furious: Fate of the Furious, it was announced that there would still be up to 3 more sequels after it. More for fans to watch out for.
On the other hand, however, some feel that the sequels are losing the originality that came with the first productions of Fast and Furious. Only time will tell how the viewers feel about the latest sequel and if they'll be interested to see more of the franchise.
Featuring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, and John Cena, the movie will also welcome some of the original cast in 2021 as the crew works together to survive the new threat.
