Presently, they must join together to bring home the man who made them a family and halt Cipher from unleashing chaos.

F9 – Dom Toretto is living the quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son Brian (who is named after his late best friend Brian O’Conner), but they know that danger always lurks just over the peaceful horizon. This time, that threat forces Dom to confront the sins of his past to save those he loves most.

Now, they must stand up to the most deadly rival they’ve ever confronted. Fueled by revenge, a frightening threat rises from the shadows of the past to smash Dom’s world and devastate everything — and everyone — he loves. This movie ends on a cliffhanger where Dom and little Brian are stuck in a dam that is filled with explosives that is about to explode. This then is supposed to lead into Fast X Part 2 that is being released next spring so fans will have to wait until April of 2025 to see what happens to Dom and little Brian.

The series has not come to an end, rumor has it that there is going to be a part 2 to Fast X that is supposed to be released on April 4th, 2025 and then two more movies after that. Lead actor Vin Diesel who portrays the role of Dominic Toretto has teased that Fast 12 will be the final movie in the saga. The saga is looking to conclude around 2029 or 2030 which would make it one of the longest lasting movie series with the same cast outside of Star Wars, Star Trek, and all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe lasting a whopping 24 years at the moment.

I really loved this series, it is definitely my favorite movie series. I give this series a 9.5 out of 10, with the movies that have been released. My favorite movie in the series is Furious 7, especially after the tribute they gave to Paul Walker. Brian O’Conner was one of my favorite characters in the series. If you ask anyone who is a fan of the series about Brian O’Conner, 9 times out of 10 they will say that he was a great character.

This franchise is something that will be a part of cinematic history forever. It’s arguably one of the best movie franchises to ever be created. It will be extremely hard to top this franchise.
