F9 (also known as F9: The Fast Saga and internationally as Fast and Furious 9) is a 2021 American action film directed by Justin Lin from a screenplay by Daniel Casey and Lin. It is the sequel to The Fate of the Furious (2017), the ninth main installment, and the tenth full-length film in the Fast & Furious franchise. The film stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron. In F9, Dominic Toretto and the team come together to stop a world-shattering plot headed by Toretto’s brother, Jakob.
F9 was originally scheduled for worldwide release by Universal Pictures on April 19, 2019, but was delayed several times, first due to the release of Hobbs & Shaw (2019) and the planned release of Eon Productions’s No Time to Die (2021), and then the COVID-19 pandemic. It premiered in South Korea and release internationally on May 19, 2021, and in the United States on June 25.
The film received mixed reviews with praise for the stunts and Lin’s direction, but criticism for its unrealistic action sequences and formulaic script. F9 set several pandemic box office records and grossed over $721 million worldwide, becoming the third highest-grossing film of 2021.

Storyline of Fast and Furious 9
In 1989, Jack Toretto–father of Dominic, Jakob, and Mia–participates in a late model race, with his sons working in the pit crew. Dom argues with rival racer Kenny Linder about his dirty tactics. During the race, Linder’s car clips Jack’s bumper, causing his car to crash, killing him. A week later after the race, Dom is arrested for nearly beating Linder to death. While serving his sentence, he recalls that Jakob had worked on their father’s car the day he died and concludes that Jakob killed their father. Upon release, Dom confronts and challenges Jakob to a race, forcing him to leave town when he loses.
In 2019, two years after the confrontation against cyberterrorist Cipher, Dom is retired and raising his son Brian with his wife, Letty Ortiz. Roman Pearce, Tej Parker, and Ramsey arrive with news that, shortly after arresting Cipher, Mr. Nobody’s plane was attacked by rogue agents and crashed in Montequinto, Central America. Dom agrees to help them after realizing Jakob is involved.
Searching the plane, they find part of a device named Project Aries, which can hack into any computer-controlled system. The team is then ambushed by a private army led by Jakob, who steals the device. The team rendezvous with Michael Stasiak en route to their safe house. Dom’s sister Mia arrives to help, and Dom reluctantly allows her to join them. The team learns that Han Lue is connected to Project Aries, and Letty and Mia go to Tokyo to investigate.
Meanwhile, Jakob meets with Otto, his associate, and financier. Cipher, who is being held at their base, tells Jakob that the other half of Ares is in Edinburgh. Dom meets his father’s former mechanic, Buddy, who took Jakob in after his exile, and learns that Jakob is in London. Letty and Mia find Han, still alive, along with his ward, Elle. Roman and Tej recruit Sean Boswell, Twinkie, and Earl Hu, who have been working on a “rocket car”.
In London, Dom meets Deckard and Owen Shaw’s mother Queenie, who gives him Jakob’s location. Dom confronts Otto and Jakob, who tells Dom to leave. Otto has Dom arrested, but Leysa, an old friend of Dom, rescues him.
Tej, Roman, and Ramsey join Dom in Edinburgh, where Jakob is using an electromagnet to steal the other part of Project Aries’s device. Tej and Roman find the truck containing the electromagnet; as they fight Otto’s men, Ramsey commandeers the truck to chase after Otto. Dom intercepts Jakob and the two fight throughout the city. Before Otto can extract Jakob, Ramsey runs his car off the road and uses the electromagnet to capture Jakob.
At the safe house, Han reveals that he was assigned by Mr. Nobody to protect Elle and Ares, as Elle’s DNA is its final component. When one of Mr. Nobody’s agents, later revealed to be Jakob, went rogue, they used Deckard Shaw to fake Han’s death and protect Elle. Otto attacks the safe house and frees Jakob, who reveals to Dom that their father, wanting to escape his debts, was attempting to throw the race on which he died, and had instructed Jakob to tamper with his car. Jakob and Otto kidnap Elle and take the other part of the Project Aries device.
Otto launches a satellite into orbit, while Jakob has Elle activate Ares. They begin uploading Ares to the satellite, moving throughout Tbilisi in an armored truck. Dom, Letty, Mia, Ramsey, and Han give chase to stop the upload. As Mia and Han try to breach the truck, Otto betrays Jakob, throwing him off the truck. Dom and Mia save Jakob, and he helps Dom access the truck.
Using the rocket car, Tej and Roman enter orbit and destroy the satellite, stopping the upload. Cipher, now working alongside Otto, bombs the truck using a UAV, killing Otto; Dom uses the ricocheting truck to destroy Cipher’s drone, forcing Cipher to escape again. Dom and Mia reconcile with Jakob, and Dom allows him to escape in his car. Tej and Roman reach the International Space Station and are safely returned to earth.
The team celebrates their success with a barbecue at Dom’s house. While preparing to say grace, Brian O’Conner arrives in his car. In a mid-credits scene, Deckard is surprised when Han arrives at his door.
