How long is this movie? This trailer alone is 3 minutes and 43 seconds which leads me to believe this movie is 5 hours long. When I initially saw this trailer, I tweeted "Man, Fast X is a 4hr film...", I think I was being overly generous. Have you not seen this trailer? If you look closely, you will see the kitchen sink. My review for Fast and Furious 9 stated "There is only so far they can go and by this movie, surely they have peaked." but what is funny, this trailer looks like they have decided to not only go full circle with some tie-backs to previous movies, something they have done before, as well as Mission Impossible (another franchise I mentioned in the last review) but now I am intrigued to how they have done this and if ultimately it works story-wise.
This trailer does a lot of things but there are a few things it does right. The trailer brings back racing for pink slips which I feel has not happened for many years now. It has just been heist after heist, essentially. While there are a few unbelievable stunts, the stoppie "bunny hop-ish" manoeuvre in an alleyway was simply one of the coolest things I've seen with a motorbike in ages. Seeing some old faces return was cool because you now know the speciality of some of these characters. The trailer is bonkers, then the post-trailer clip of two women fighting for whatever reason having just woken up on what looked like some kind of operating table. It reminded me of Face-Off, to be fair.
I want to say I am done with the franchise, but it's that action, it keeps pulling me back in. Like, surely that is a mid-air NOS move, right? It could only be that. At this rate, we are only accepting a specific level of absurdity, there is a fine balance this franchise needs to maintain, anything above that and it is a no thank you. Lastly, Dom's face looks a little weird in some scenes. Anyway, bring on a second trailer.
