Credit We Need To Do Something as one of those impossible to write about yet exciting festival discoveries that are so easy to spoil—so we remain vague.
F9 worships at the altar of “family” beyond retcons, resurrections, and more schmaltzy Toretto flashbacks than a Hallmark reboot of the speedster episodic could muster.
