F9 ★★★½

“You’ve got to make peace with the past if you want hope for the future.”

Han, the best character in the series, back; jokes about the team being immortal and invincible that might just seem to be true after this one; and some emotional moments that actually hit very hard. Triumphs and trumps the previous films in its scale and stakes, by an enormously and wildly large amount, whilst grounding itself in a personal story about... family. Didn’t expect some parts of this to hit as hard as it did, but damn if family isn’t a powerful essence to the F&F saga. The craziest film in the saga so far, as well as one of the best, with a personal message right at its core that ties it closer to the franchise’s heart and soul than ever before - family.
