Fast X receives an official rating from the MPA promising the new Fast & Furious film will feature “intense sequences of violence and action.”
Fast X receives an official rating from the MPA promising some “intense” action scenes. The tenth and penultimate film in the street racing-turned-globe-trotting action franchise is going bigger than ever before. Fast X finds Dom protecting his family from the fury of Dante, the son of Fast Five‘s Hernan Reyes who is now seeking revenge for his father’s death. Vin Diesel returns once again alongside franchise regulars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, John Cena, Jason Statham, and Sung Kang. The cast also includes high-profile newcomers Jason Momoa and Brie Larson.
Now, with the Fast X release date coming up this spring, the Motion Picture Association of America has issued its official rating for the film. According to their Film Ratings website, Fast X has unsurprisingly received a PG-13 rating. A description specifies the reason for the rating is “intense sequences of violence and action, language and some suggestive material.”
What To Expect From Fast X’s Action
Fast X‘s official rating or its reasoning doesn’t reveal too much about the film. In fact, it’s nearly identical to F9 and nearly every other PG-13 action blockbuster. However, the description’s use of “intense” suggests Fast X should continue to deliver the franchise’s signature style of action. Director Louis Leterrier, who stepped in to replace franchise veteran Justin Lin early in production, has teased Fast X‘s action scenes by saying he prioritized practical effects and real stunts as much as possible.
This type of intense action is on full display in the Fast X trailer, including Dom taking down two helicopters with his car and a giant metal ball rolling through the streets of Rome as a reference to Raiders of the Lost Ark. There is also a renewed focus on street racing, which the franchise has mostly abandoned in recent installments. The intense violence is also on display, including hand-to-hand combat between Letty and Cipher and John Cena’s Jakob slamming a man through a floor.
