Fast X marks the 10th entry in the Fast & Furious series. It’s amazing to see how these movies have grown from their humble beginnings. The story began as a police officer going undercover to track down a street racing gang who are stealing a series electronic devices (we’re talking about DVD players). Since then, the franchise has evolved into a superhero movie about heroes who have to save the world with amazing vehicular stunts.

This feeling is amplified by FastX, which is the first part of what will be billed as the two-part finale to the series that spans more than 20 years. What’s in store for Dominic Toretto and Letty, Roman, Tej, and all the other Fast-& Furious characters? This is all we know about FastX.

What is the plot of Fast X Plot?
We don’t know the plot details of FastX and, after F9‘s time-bound madness it’s hard to predict where this last chapter will take us. However, we can make educated guesses.
FastX could be looking to the next generation of crew members, particularly Dom and Brian’s children, considering this is the final story. The movie could be finished with a flash forward showing how these kids become great racer agents like their parents. Jordana Brewster also suggests that this is something she would like to see in the last movies.
This would be a more symbolic passing of the torch if that is the direction the story takes. If so, it is likely that the crew will have some difficult moments as they fight to protect the world for their children. The villain is still a question.
In the final scene of F9, Deckard Shaw met Han again and was surprised to see him alive. The possibility exists that Shaw and his family his will be again enemies of Dom ‘s crew in the upcoming film. However, Cipher is still alive and was on the run at F9 so it’s possible that she will return as the villain.
Fans can expect the familia, no matter who they are up against to undertake yet another high-stakes mission filled with crazy levels of action. We don’t know where this story will take us, so we’ll just have to enjoy it.
