CelebnMovies247.com reports that every sequel in the Fast & Furious franchise has notably upped the ante.
The first movie focused on street racing, but by Fast 5, Dom and his crew were performing full-blown heists. In Fast & Furious 7, they were driving cars through skyscrapers, and in The Fate of the Furious, they saved the world from a nuclear catastrophe. But as unlikely as it sounds, Fast X can return to the franchise’s roots.
Released exactly 20 years after the first movie, F9 continued to raise the stakes with stunts that included rope-swinging cars, a landmine-field chase, and a rocket car. The global conspiracies and near-superhuman antiheroes that Dom and company have had to face are also a far cry from the street races of the first film, which centered solely on one police officer, Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner, in pursuit of one street racer, Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto.
While these elements seem to be long gone in F9, the ninth installment dropped some hints that the franchise hasn’t lost all its initial essence.
As we all know, The Fast & Furious franchise hasn’t crossed the line to become pure sci-fi yet. It still honors other, more grounded parts of the franchise, with the return of Tokyo Drift characters such as Sean Boswell, Twinkie, and Earl, as well as younger versions of Jesse, Leo, and Santos. If Fast X and Fast & Furious 11 aim to conclude the franchise with a heartfelt bookend, they could tell a story that’s a higher-stakes version of the original movie’s plot.
What we do know is that The Fast & Furious franchise would contribute to this trend with a street racing blockbuster released in 2023. Fast X will undoubtedly invest its huge budget in unprecedented spectacle, but that doesn’t mean it has to stray further away than previous installments already have.
Fast X will hit theaters in 2023.
