WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

At its very best, there's something positively life-affirming about F9, the fifth Fast & Furious movie directed by Justin Lin. - Oliver Jones, Observer

Man, it's fun! Partly that's because the action set pieces, if not quite up to Mission Impossible or MC Universe standards, really are choreographed with flair. - Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

If you can stomach the macho melodrama, these movies are ridiculous big-screen ballets, with cars shooting out of skyscrapers and airplanes, that at their best are the right kind of stupid. - Jake Coyle, Associated Press

The acting is of a soaring ineptitude; the deeper Diesel emotes, the more he resembles a man who dabbed too much wasabi on his tuna roll. - Anthony Lane, New Yorker
