The tenth film in the “Fast and Furious” franchise returns to deliver more insane action sequences, ridiculous dialogue, and a story that abandons all logic and reasoning so that you have to question everything onscreen. Louis Leterrier takes over for Justin Lin as the director, and his direction does feel identical to Lin’s. Leterrier’s direction is action-packed and manages to tie the events to “Fast Five” perfectly to show that there is an exciting story to tell. Vin Diesel once again delivers an excellent performance as the character of Dominic “Dom” Toretto. In this film, Toretto is put through the ultimate test when he faces the son of the criminal drug lord Hernan Reyes from “Fast Five,” who threatens to destroy Toretto and his family. Jason Momoa portrays Dante Reyes, son of Hernan Reyes, and delivers a fantastic performance as the main villain. Momoa looks like he is having the time of his life, going from a range of emotions, including comical, charismatic, and intimidating, making him easily the best villain in the franchise. The supporting cast contains a bunch of returning favorites that helped make the franchise what it is today, which includes Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Sung Kang as Han Lue, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, John Cena, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. Also joining the cast to give some pretty good performances in this movie include Daniela Melchior, Alan Ritchson, Brie Larson, and Rita Moreno. “Fast X” has a premise that is literally on autopilot. Still, thanks to the action sequences and great performances led by Vin Diesel and Jason Momoa, fans of the franchise will be delighted with the first part of what is supposed to be a three-part finale to the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
