The film of the summer has started its engines for the penultimate time. With adventure, between chases and explosions. In the Vatica. Thinking about philosophy while watching a film with Vin Diesel seems like a real nonsense, almost an oxymoron.
Fast X Trailer
Yet it is like this.
Fast X, from May 18 in cinemas, starts with distillates of wisdom , explores the concepts of legacy and eternity. In fact, the Fast & Furious franchise is in excellent health even after 25 years and perhaps this chapter will no longer be the penultimate but the second of a trilogy. There are some clues but mouths are sealed, especially those of director Louis Leterrier.
Historic faces return in style.
Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena and Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron . They are joined by Brie Larson (Tess, a crooked Agency representative), Alan Ritchson (Aimes, the new head of the Agency); Daniela Melchior (Isabel, with a secret tied to Dom and his past), Rita Moreno (Abuelita Toretto, the grandmother of Dom and Mia).
The blockbuster of the summer, Fast X manages to outdo itself on all fronts. And it’s not said just because for the first time in the history of the saga there is a good part of the events set in Italy (in fact Rome hosted the world premiere with the cast).
That certainly makes us proud, as happened with 007 and Mission: Impossible (just to mention two recent Hollywood legendary projects shot on the streets of the capital), but it is only the starting point. This time the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty does not explode but the aim is directly at the Vatican .
The villain of the moment, Jason Momoa, is called Dante, sings O’ Sole Mio and is a vengeful mythomaniac who likes blatant gestures, otherwise instead of using a big ball when a two-story building could, for example, exterminate enemies in a more subtle way, with some new generation toxin.
But that’s how he is, he opens his arms to heaven, feels very powerful and finds no peace until the defeat of the Toretto clan, headed by Vin Diesel/Dom.
The reason is quite common.
A feud between crime families goes badly, someone loses their skin and takes an eye for an eye. These are the premises of the film. What happens in the various scenes is as bombastic and spectacular as ever, but it has all the airs of a high school reunion.
They are all there, or almost all
Paul Walker appears in an image, but even more important his daughter Meadow makes a cameo in the story. Meanwhile there are chases, explosions, derailments, kidnappings, injuries, hand-to-hand combat, secrets and anything else you can think of. The characters are scattered around the world and do everything and more, continuing to repeat that the family is the maximum value to devote oneself to.
At a certain point you move between so many countries and see so many intertwined stories that it’s hard to keep up, as if the director wanted to compress an entire life into two hours without leaving anything to chance.
