“Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a peaceful life off the grid with Letty and his kid, little Brian, but they know that real problem lies just over their calm horizon,” according to the official F9 synopsis. This time, the threat will push Dom to face his past sins if he is to save those he values most. His team comes together to stop a world-shattering conspiracy arranged by the most experienced killer and greater driver they’ve ever encountered: Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, The Suicide Squad).”
F9 had a mixed response from critics. It currently has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 69 percent. “F9 sends the series flying more over the edge than before, but director Justin Lin’s talent for absurd set pieces maintains the action humming,” says the critical consensus.
