F9 ★★★

As with 8, sorely misses The Rock's star power (even a little Statham would've gone a long way) and in filling that gap, John Cena simply cannot carry a non-comedic role.

The lengthy flashback diversions are miscast and broadly inconsequential. Still, it's wonderful to have Sung Kang back onboard and any serious criticisms melt away any time he hugs one of the OG cast.
