Hops and Box Office Flops: ‘F9: THE FAST SAGA’

Space Cars!

The Poster for F9: The Fast Saga

F9: The Fast Saga—as utterly absurd as it is—is the natural progression of a series that’s always running on overdrive. Dominic Toretto, Vin Diesel, and co. were destined for this film’s convoluted, bloated, and baffling narrative.

Now, those may sound like knocks against it, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I just don’t care how illogical the plots of these films have become. They are just too much damn fun.

Dom has a secret spy brother? Sure. Why they hell not?! Magnets! How do they work? Doesn’t matter. Just bask in the awesomeness of the high octane action!

Dom, Vin Diesel, and Jakob, John Cena, Face off in F9: The Fast Saga

Han, who was killed twice technically in cannon, returns out of nowhere, you say? Bam! Check that shit off of my bingo card and let’s roll!

That is F9: The Fast Saga in a nutshell. It’s bonkers; it’s spectacular; and we’ll keep watching them as long as they want to make them. And it appears we’re not alone. F9: The Fast Saga is cruising its way to well over $600 worldwide; and its doing so faster than a 10-second car at Race Wars.

So sit back, sip on a Corona with a slice of lime, and toast to family! I, the Thunderous Wizard (@WriterTLK), Chumpzilla, and Mayor McCheese are living our lives a quarter mile at a time!
