The Fast Saga isn’t out of gas yet. We’re back this week to review Fast X, the tenth installment in the “main” Fast & Furious series of movies starring Vin Diesel as everyone’s favorite Family Man. But this isn’t just any fast movie. For one thing, it’s the eighth most expensive movie of all time. But also, it’s the first part of a finale (that might span three films?) promising to bring this franchise to a dead end. This is a spoiler-free review, as usual, and stick around for the end of the show as we play the Rotten Tomatoes Game. Fast X also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Scott Eastwood, Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, Helen Mirren, Brie Larson, Rita Moreno, Jason Statham, Jason Momoa, and Charlize Theron. Louis Leterrier directs with Dan Mazeau and Justin Lin (who left the project) co-writing the script.
Our intro music this week is “Wind Flower” by Toti Cisneros.

Synopsis for Fast X:
THE END OF THE ROAD BEGINS. Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fueled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.
