We were able to screen the movie in order to bring you this Fast X Parents Guide.
I am a long-time fan of the Fast & Furious series. I own almost every movie and enjoy rewatching the series, especially leading up to a new release like Fast X.
I felt like the movie was really great at making sure the storyline moved along as well as building and keeping character development. I felt like things were a little jumbled and some of the scenes dragged out a little too long and they didn’t spend enough time on others.
Up to this point, I felt like Jason Momoa was a little one-lane in what I had seen – but this movie really broke everything I had expected. He did a phenomenal job as his character and really stole the show.
This is part 1 of 2, so don’t expect it to all tie together by the end. There is a post-credit scene that you need to stay for (but once the real credits start rolling you can head out).
Overall I enjoyed the movie. I wish Paul Walker was still alive so he could add his great flavor to the films, but overall I really think it was entertaining and I am looking forward to seeing the next one.

Fast X is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, language, and some suggestive material. It runs for 2hr 21m.
There is one end-credit scene for Fast X. When the main credits start rolling, feel free to head out.
Sex & Nudity – 2/5 – Shows a girl jumping up and wrapping her legs around a man (both are fully dressed). He lays her on the bed. They kiss then sit up and talk. A 1-2 minute interlude where it shows all the street racers dancing. Most wear skimpy clothing. Close-ups on behinds, etc.
Violence & Gore – 3/5 – Car chases, people involved in kidnapping, held at gunpoint, explosions, stabbings, intense fighting scenes, impalement, car crashes, and more.
Profanity – 3/5 – Several uses of GD, shit, damn, bitch, OMG, pussy. Some language in the lyrics.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking – 3/5 –A man is shown eating muffins containing drugs, with brief scenes of drinking.
Frightening & Intense Scenes – 3/5 – Car chases, crashes, shooting. A man is talking to two corpses and has contorted faces because they have been taped.
Fast X is a great continuation of the Fast and Furious movies. I really enjoyed it and felt like the storyline moved great. Jason Momoa is absolutely great! He played his part very well. I enjoyed the new additions to the cast and the old ones as well. I would recommend 13+ on this as suggested because of the violence and language.
Fast X Parents Guide
About Fast X:
Fast X, the tenth film in the Fast & Furious Saga, launches the final chapters of one of cinema’s most storied and popular global franchises, now in its third decade and still going strong with the same core cast and characters as when it began.
Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fueled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.
In 2011’s Fast Five, Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and decapitated his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know was that Reyes’ son, Dante (Aquaman’s Jason Momoa), witnessed it all and has spent the last 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.
Dante’s plot will scatter Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica. New allies will be forged and old enemies will resurface. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his own 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry, Black-ish) is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance.
Directed by Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) and written by Justin Lin (F9) & Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans), Fast X stars returning cast members Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena, and Scott Eastwood, with Oscar® winner Helen Mirren and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron.
The film also features an extraordinary new cast including Oscar® winner Brie Larson as Tess, a rogue representative from the Agency; Alan Richtson (Reacher) as Aimes, the new head of the Agency who doesn’t hold the same fondness for Dom’s crew as his predecessor, Mr. Nobody; Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad) as a Brazilian street racer with a powerful tie to Dom’s past; and legendary Oscar® winner Rita Moreno as Dom and Mia’s Abuelita Toretto.
