Fast X Movie Review

Instead of X-wings, Universal has occasionally flying automobiles. They have street racers from Los Angeles who steal VCRs and nuclear submarines instead of superheroes. The Fast and Furious franchise’s open and expanding embracing of absurd mayhem has been a delight given how many filmmakers in recent years have adopted the po-faced, gloomy approach to maintaining old favourite characters and series alive. F9 from 2021 accomplished a number of crazy action scenes using the power of magnets. It sent a Pontiac carrying Tyrese and Ludacris into orbit. With a straight face, it informed us that John Cena was Vin Diesel’s sibling, and we took it at its value.

Or, at the very least, those of us who were prepared to suspend enough of our scepticism to accompany the crazy journey. But it turns out that you can only get so far without touching grass in that kind of insanity. The raucous Fast X, the huge and overcrowded first installment of a planned multi-part conclusion, replaces the roaring exhilaration of F9 and stuffs a potato in the series’ exhaust pipe. It is almost entirely saved by Jason Momoa’s deeply bizarre and quite hilarious portrayal as the villain.

Fast Five first encountered Hobbs pursuing Brian and Dom in 2011 as they were pulling the safe of drug lord Hernan Reyes through Rio. It was a pivotal instance of cartoon logic infiltrating a formerly self-referential series, and it went best with a bottle of Axe body spray and a PS2 copy of Need for Speed Underground 2. And what about that? The films that came after were generally superior as a result. Few could have predicted while viewing the 2001 original that not only would the Fast films take that risk at all, but that they would be so effective in transferring it to something uniquely bombastic. Significantly changing the tone of a franchise midstream carries vulnerability and danger.

Fast X Movie reveal

Fast X sloppily reveals, as this series is wont to do, that Hernan’s son Dante (Jason Momoa) was actually present during that entire chase scene. After witnessing his family’s ill-gotten wealth destroyed and his father killed, Dante has re-emerged to wage war on Dom (Vin Diesel), the ringleader of the world’s top group of car thieves/international spies, promising no death while suffering is owed. The means in which Dante exacts retribution on the Fast Family are as random as Dante himself, despite the fact that his reason for seeking vengeance is obvious and Fast X often emphasises his Anti-Dom foil status. He can only do much of anything thanks to the technology and mercenary soldiers that he has managed to collect.

The character’s looseness called for an actor willing to use it in their performance, and Jason Momoa arrived on set ravenous. Apart from Momoa’s endless chaos energy, Dante’s efficacy as an antagonist is the only aspect in Fast X that is consistently entertaining. There is no other way to put it: Dante is a genuine freak, and Momoa proudly waves that flag. He seems to have marathoned all these films and constantly makes fun of Dom’s macho and logical fallacies, both in front of Dom and all by himself. Momoa deserves a lot of responsibility for preventing Fast X from gaining weight. It’s the secret goatee-twirling that distinguishes Dante from other antagonists in the series so far.
