‘Fast X’ review: Overspeeding thrill ride

Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved, and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, for the tenth installment in the long-running series, they must confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: a terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who is fueled by blood revenge and is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything–and everyone–that Dom loves, forever.

“Fast X” marks the franchise’s beginning of the end, and it does so with a bang. The movie continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of high-speed car chases and adrenaline-fueled action. This action-packed ride is a wild, visual spectacle that will leave you breathless. The franchise has driven itself into a dead end, giving the audience what they want without anything new or surprising. Yet, seeing the reunion of the Fast family on the big screen is still both exhilarating and entertaining.

In addition to the mind-blowing action, “Fast X” still manages to strike an emotional chord. The well-developed characters, played by a talented ensemble cast, bring depth and complexity to the story. Vin Diesel’s portrayal of Dom Toretto continues to be the heart and soul of the franchise, but “Fast X” belongs to Jason Momoa. His performance as the villain steals the show and solidifies his place among the stars of the franchise. Even the newcomers to the franchise — Brie Larson, Alan Ritchson, and Daniela Melchior — also make a memorable impact, bringing their own unique energy and personalities to the table.

“Fast X” is the ‘Infinity War’ of the franchise, bringing another impossible entry into its legacy. The movie is just revving its engine for more sequels to come, kicking off more stories one way or another, yet it offers an appropriately overwhelming finale to a no doubt temporary ending. “Fast X” hooks you in the same way, and part of what makes “FAST” so enjoyable is the awareness of its entertainment, action, and adrenaline rush while still retaining an immense heart to the story.

The movie is tailor-made to entertain fans and impress them with its impossible, yet awe-inspiring, stunts. In the end, “FAST X” delivers yet another mind-blowing finale that will have fans begging for more. There is a post-credit scene that will surely shock its longtime fans.
