F9: The Fast Saga | 2021 | PG-13 | – 2.6.4

content-ratingsWhy is “F9: The Fast Saga” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “sequences of violence and action, and language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a kiss, a scene of provocative dancing, and cleavage revealing outfits, many dangerous car chases and races with one ending in the death of a driver without gore, many explosions and property damage, a space launch, and some strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


In the ninth installment of the car-centric action franchise Dom (Vin Diesel) has retreated to an isolated farm, living a quiet life and raising his son; he is enticed to take on another dangerous mission when his team realizes that a previous nemesis is causing new mayhem — and Dom’s long forsaken brother (John Cena) is implicated in the scheme. Also with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, Finn Cole, Sung Kang, Anna Sawai, Helen Mirren and Kurt Russell. Directed by Justin Lin. [Running Time: 2:25]

F9: The Fast Saga SEX/NUDITY 2

 – A man and a woman kiss.
 Women wearing tight-fitting, short and low-cut dresses dance at a party with hip thrusts and shakes (cleavage, bare legs to upper thighs and backs are shown). A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage and bare shoulders.
 A man says that another man is compensating for something, when he drives a very large, armored vehicle. A man says that he is creeped out and “sort of turned on at the same time” about a woman locked up in a cell. A man says, “Some birds can’t be caged,” about a woman. A man offers another man women at a party.

F9: The Fast Saga VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – Cars race around a track and two cars spin out causing another car to swerve to avoid them, a car slams into a wall and the driver struggles to get back on the track, a car hits another car and the other car spins, flips gets caught in the metal fencing around the track and blows up (the driver dies).
 Two men point guns at each other and many armed Interpol agents surround them holding their weapons on one of the men (he is taken away in a vehicle). Military vehicles chase and shoot at people in and around plane wreckage; they speed away in cars and are chased, one man is left at the scene and he tackles another man into a hole in the ground and shoots several armed men outside; the vehicles continue to speed and one slams into another, they drive into an area marked dangerous because of land mines and the mines explode as they drive over them and several cars are blown up and thrown; one vehicle is thrown and lands between two walls directly over a land mine and the driver gets out just before the vehicle falls on the mine, and when it does, it tips over and the man runs away (he is shown with a scratch on his face and he seems dazed but is otherwise OK). Several ATVs chase a woman on a motorcycle across rough terrain, one man jumps out of the vehicle and onto the motorcycle where the rider throws him and he slams into a tree; the rider is then thrown and lands on the hood of a car and seems unharmed. A vehicle speeds toward a rope bridge as another vehicle crashes into it and the bridge breaks apart; the first vehicle speeds along the remaining bridge and to safety on the ground. A helicopter shoots at several vehicles and a car speeds off a cliff and is swooped up by a drone that flies away. An extended chase sequence between cars and a large transport vehicle causes a lot of property damage when other cars and items in the surrounding streets are pulled in the path of the vehicles, people inside the vehicles exchange gunfire and some vehicles flip and crash in flames. A car on the back of a transport plane is dropped off the back of the plane and it engages rockets attached to it; it soars out of the atmosphere and floats in space. A man and a woman climb into a large vehicle and fight two men inside, one man is shoved out the driver’s side door and tumbles on the ground, and the other is shoved out of the back hatch and is pulled away by a parachute into the air where he explodes from a device placed on his chest. A woman shoots a large weapon at a large transport vehicle, with police cars chasing and shooting at them; electrical lines are pulled onto the roadway and the police cars get entangled in them, and many cars are pulled in the transport’s path eventually causing it to overturn and slam to the ground nearly crushing a man in a car. Two men in a car in space crash through a satellite destroying it (we see the men OK Later). A large transport vehicle rolls down a hillside, a man runs through it inside, it rights itself on a roadway before being shot at by a drone shooting rockets at it, it blows up and goes over a cliff (the man jumps out to safety) and the drone crashes into it and disappears.
 A man fights many men as they charge into an area, they push him to the floor and punch and kick him, he gets up and fights throwing a few men over a railing with some getting wrapped in chains and snaps one man’s back over a railing; he is surrounded by many men and pulls on two chains that bring the structure down on top of them all; they plunge into water below and we see the first man revive later. Two men fight on top of a moving transport vehicle, one is struck in the back by a billboard but is unharmed, they continue to fight and one man falls off the vehicle and onto the hood of another car, he slips and is helped up by a woman in the vehicle. A woman with a retractable baton attacks a man that enters an apartment with his gun trained on two other women; all the parties fight with punches, kicks, hits and throws as other men enter and join the fight; one man is slammed into a TV, another into a wall, and another is pushed out of a window and a woman lands on top of him unharmed and someone in the distance shoots other people preparing to attack her. Two men attack two other men and they punch them unconscious. A man punches another man in the face and he hits the first man repeatedly with a wrench off-screen. Two men fight in a building, one man jumps out of the building and we see shattering glass, and they jump between vehicles and crash onto a truck. A man is punched in the abdomen and others are held at gunpoint by guards wearing protective vests that emit a gas that causes them to cough and fills the room with smoke.
 Several cars, armored vehicles and a motorcycle speed along a narrow road near a ledge over a sheer drop-off over water below. A car drives along a road toward an isolated farm where a man and a woman arm themselves and a young boy is sent into a safe room. A car with a rocket engine strapped to its roof is tested and it reaches a plane; the three men testing it are excited that it didn’t blow up, but then it explodes in the distance. Police cars chase another car through a city after the driver steals a piece of jewelry, the car spins and reverses and the police cars crash into each other. A woman drives a large truck through a city street and crashes into other vehicles while men fight in the back of the truck and are thrown around. A man slides across cables between several buildings. A man yells at another man and says, “I showed you mercy.”
 A downed plane smolders on the ground and several armed people search through it for evidence of a survivors or important cargo. We see a recording of a mayday message where a man says that his plane is under attack by a rogue agent and that he has very dangerous cargo. Electronic devices are knocked out by a device in a truck. A woman presses a button in a truck and a magnetic device in the back is engaged causing two men to be pulled into it. A man’s necklace is pulled off his neck and sticks to the side of a truck as he walks by.
 A man says that another man is living in his brother’s shadow. Men argue about a dangerous mission and they overhear another man talking about the potential for their survival, causing one of the men to become upset. A man says, “I just grew a new bunion” after walking a lot.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
