Fast X gets an official MPA rating that hints at some “intense” action scenes.
The franchise’s penultimate film takes the action to a new level as Dom faces Dante, the son of Fast Five’s Hernan Reyes who wants to avenge his father’s death.
Vin Diesel leads the cast again with familiar faces like Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, John Cena, Jason Statham, and Sung Kang.
The film also features high-profile newbies like Jason Momoa and Brie Larson.
As Fast X approaches its spring release date, the Motion Picture Association of America has given its official rating for the film.
Their Film Ratings website shows that Fast X has expectedly earned a PG-13 rating.
The rating is due to “intense sequences of violence and action, language and some suggestive material.”
The official rating and its reason don’t give away much about the film. It’s almost the same as F9 and most other PG-13 action movies.
But the word “intense” implies that Fast X keeps up the franchise’s trademark action style.
Director Louis Leterrier, who took over from franchise veteran Justin Lin early on, has hinted at Fast X’s action scenes by saying he used practical effects and real stunts as much as he could.
The trailer for Fast X shows this kind of intense action, with Dom destroying two helicopters with his car and a huge metal ball crashing through the streets of Rome as a nod to Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The film also brings back street racing, which was missing in the franchise of late.
The intense violence is also evident, with Letty and Cipher fighting hand-to-hand, and John Cena’s Jakob smashing a man through a floor.
It is safe to say that Fast X will be packed with action sequences to the brim, probably more than any film in the illustrious franchise.
