‘Fast & Furious X’ delivers vertigo, action and unexpected returns

The tenth film of ‘Fast and Furious’ has arrived in cinemas in Ecuador. As always, it’s packed with cars, chases and challenges to the law of gravity.

‘Fast and Furious’ is one of the guilty pleasures of 21st century cinema. Since the premiere of the first film in 2001, the saga has grown in followers who are captivated by these adventures aboard amazing cars that perform impossible feats.

Now, with the premiere of the tenth part, the saga begins to say goodbye to its viewers and it is inevitable to feel nostalgia for the new story.

‘Fast & Furious X’ is the first of a trilogy that will kick off the careers of Dominic ‘Dom’ Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, and his family of benevolent robbers.

This first part has all the ingredients ‘Fast and Furious’ fans have come to expect, and they are listed below:

  • The soul of these films is in the automobile, which is created in the imagination by the characters to prevail in the race.

    But those vehicles are also modified to handle the hustle and bustle of just out-driving a military aircraft on the highway.

    The star of ‘Fast & Furious X’ is of course Dodge Charger R/T Day 1970 That manages Toretto.

    Impalas, Nissans and Porches also parade. But connoisseurs will appreciate the beautiful 1971 Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce driven by Han Seol-oh. How dare they even scratch the paint on it!

  • The film includes a commemorative gymkhana around the world with races and chases. And, as always, a trail of explosions, crushed cars and destroyed scenery is left behind.

    This time, the car action takes place through the narrow streets of Rome, the avenues of Rio de Janeiro and the dusty roads of Portugal. To spice up the challenge, the pilots will have to fight with helicopters.

  • Slowly, the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies are tracing the adventures of superheroes.

    For this reason, scripts allow for absurdity from the point of view of physics. In this tenth film, a car drives into a 90-degree inclined hydroelectric dam and the occupants escape unharmed.

    The iconic scene, which everyone is already commenting on, is Toretto enduring high-caliber bullets with a car door as a shield, Captain America-style. Well, that is the thing about ‘Fast & Furious’ where the script is beyond all comprehension.

  • villain, joker style

    Actor Jason Momoa creates a villain very reminiscent of Batman’s rival the Joker.

    Dante is a character who mixes cruelty with endless devastation.

    But in reality, he is always one step ahead of Toretto and his friends. Yes, just like the Joker does in the comics.

  • many characters return

    Apart from the cars and action, the film features the return of several characters from the previous installments as an attraction for the fans. It’s a celebrity parade that gasps.

    Also in the post-credits scene, a character that everyone wanted to see briefly appears and will be the key to the second part.

And those who don’t know anything?

For all of the above, it would be better to have seen something before ‘Fast & Furious’ to fully enjoy this tenth installment. For the new insider, it’s imperative to review ‘Fast & Furious 5’ (2011) and the previous two films to get the most out of what’s happening now.

But, if the audience just wants to watch an action movie and enjoy the cars, they can walk into the show and let themselves go. After all, Toretto is behind the wheel.
