Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Fast X story is decent and could have been much better. The screenplay is not up to the mark and could have been much tighter. The emotional connect is missing in this film, which is a major drawback. The story mainly focus of Dom trying to save his son but I didn’t find a strong connect in it. I enjoyed the entry of Dante, pre-interval action and the climax scene. This film will surprise you with the two re-entries at the end of the film. Sit for a while after the end as there is a mid-credit scene too. As a cinema lover, I find the film slow, mixed with emotions and felt the thrill is missing to some extent. Best thing for me is the action and I loved it. In terms of performance, Jason surprised me as villain. He is the highlight of this film. The production value is huge and you will enjoy the action sequences a lot. I got a bit emotional for John in the film but I won’t reveal the reason. Not the best of Fast and Furious film but definitely one time watch on big screens. The cinematography is good and I personally loved the shots taken during action scenes and street race sequences. The background music is good and I enjoyed it on big screen.
The movie has been directed by Louis Leterrier. It have been produced by Vin Diesel, Neal H Moritz, Justin Lin, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Samantha Vincent. The story have been written by Dan Mazeau, Justin Lin and Zach Dean. The musical score has been given by Brian Tyler and the cinematography done by Stephen F Windon. The Editing work have been taken care by Dylan Highsmith, Kelly Matsumoto, Laura Yanovich and Corbin Mehl.
Fast X movie budget is reportedly around USD 340 Million (2803 crores rupees).
Altogether, Fast X is definitely a film for Fast and Furious franchise fans and you can also watch it once as a cinema going audience. I personally think this movie will recover the budget but couldn’t be a big game changer. Definitely, this film hyped for the coming installments of this franchise films.
Last Word: Watch it for Jason Momoa and Vin Diesel. Also watch it for the end surprises.
