The film also received mixed reviews from various critics. But the “Fast and Furious” films continue to be an audience favorite, with the film reaching an average rating of B+ on CinemaScore.
This franchise, which began in 2001, has made USD 6.3 billion globally. It also includes the earnings of the 2019 movie spinoff "Hobbs & Shaw", starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
In Fast and Furious 9, the actors were seen as Vin Diesel playing Dominic Toretto along with Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson playing Roman Pearce, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Charlize Theron as Cipher.
