The only thing worse than a bad action movie is a boring one. F9 Is a comedy but it just doesn’t know it. F9 comes out flat and lazy without any new story for the fans to enjoy. My biggest issue with F9 is that it is everything the audience has seen before. The heart of the franchise seems to be missing in this installment. The absence of Dwayne Johnson is felt in F9.
They completely jumped the shark by sending Tej and Roman into space, then comparing them to Minions. F9 should do well at the box office as Americans race back to the theaters in search of an escape from covid restrictions. If you are a true fan of the Fast and Furious franchise, then check it out, if not, then wait for this to hit one of the many streaming services.
