Some individuals have had the privilege of seeing F9: The Fast Saga and their reactions indicate it may be the best in the franchise yet.
After having its initial release date of April 2019 shifted forward as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, F9: The Fast Saga will finally premiere on May 19, 2021, in Hong Kong and South Korea, arriving in the United States on June 25, 2021.
The ninth film is perhaps the most anticipated yet because of the introduction of John Cena, who plays Jakob Toretto, the vengeful younger brother of Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto, the return of Han (Sung Kang), and some of our heroes literally going to space.

Below are some of the reactions of those who have seen the film:
I've seen #F9 and can say it's a TON OF FUN!! The action feels fresh & innovative, if not necessarily bigger. It weaves in John Cena's Jakob in a smart way that builds on the theme of family, giving it some real heart. This is ultimate Fast & Furious.— molly freeman (@mollyrockit) May 18, 2021
also HAN IS STILL GREAT!!! pic.twitter.com/SfLCBKsypR
I watched #F9 today & it’s exactly what you hope it will be. It is the perfect summer blockbuster. Massive memorable action sequences w/ lots of humor, heart, family drama, super magnets and THEY FINALLY GO TO SPACE! Longtime FAST fans will adore all the nods to previous films. pic.twitter.com/qqidMqrWX0— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) May 18, 2021
F9 is ~by far~ the biggest & most ridiculous Fast & Furious yet.— david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) May 18, 2021
miles from the precision of Fast Five or the fun of Tokyo Drift, but with Justin Lin at the helm it feels like things are finally moving in the right direction. #JusticeForHan

#F9 had me smiling like a straight man at a sportball gathering.— Joel Meares (@joelmeares) May 18, 2021
It's all wink wink, nudge nudge, vroom vroom and I loved. The over-the-top set pieces you want + some old-school F1-2 vibes.
As for #JusticeForHan? There will be takes. But Tokyo Drift heads are in for a treat. pic.twitter.com/aPtTgnDJxF
#F9 is grandiose fun. Bombastic, brazen, bold. Supercharged stunts & ambitious action set pieces mix with combustible soap opera dramatics. It’s a cacophony car-crunching mayhem. Vin Diesel & John Cena are terrific. Tyrese is the stealth MVP. Plenty of gas left in the tank. pic.twitter.com/oi1gygUtQz— Courtney Howard (@Lulamaybelle) May 18, 2021
My F9 reaction: The Fast movies 4-8 work well because they embrace the ridiculousness. But at some point it's way too much. The couple of moments to of laughs and charm are totally overwhelmed by the eye rolling nonsense. It's the worst FF movie to date.— Giovanni Campea (@johncampea) May 18, 2021
