I’ve finally watched Fast 9
And it’s s**t
Fast 9 is probably the worst movie I’ve ever seen, maybe not in absolute terms but it definitely is in relation to the budget, and, more importantly, considering the weight of the name it carries.
The plot, the ultra-exaggerated special effects, and just an overall anger-inducing level of bulls**t. The Fast Saga was best described by Screen Junkies in an interesting series on YouTube called ‘Honest Trailers’.
”The franchise that was good, then bad, then so bad it’s good has [now] reached its final form: so bad but they think if they admit it, you’ll think is good.”
On-screen characters often get very close to breaking the fourth wall to remind the audience how unrealistic everything is. It’s supposed to be funny, but it’s irritating.
I don’t mind the fact that the Fast franchise has long abandoned the street racing theme and is now essentially an action series where cars are just side characters, I do mind the fact that none of what I’ve seen makes even the slightest dollop of cinematic sense. It’s supposed to be entertaining but it’s not, it’s like a parody of itself.
I only spent €0.99 to watch it on Prime but I still feel robbed. Sorry for the rant, I’ll have a cup of tea now.
