About Fast X
The end of the road begins.
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) is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance.

Age Rating of Fast X: Parents Guide (7 Big Things)
Can your kids watch this one? What is the age rating of Fast X?
This parent’s guide will help you decide if your family can handle the seven big issues with movies and shows: mature topics, gore, violence, language, sex, romance, and nudity. We’ll also give the Fast X age rating and age-appropriate recommendations.
There is some language in Fast X that parents need to be aware of.
There are no F-bombs dropped, however.
Your kids will hear:
- g-d d@mmit (multiple uses- this seemed to be the most frequent curse used)
- holy sh!t
- bull sh!t
- sum b!tch
- curse in Italian with hand gestures
Age Rating of Fast X: Is It Safe For Teens When It Comes To Sex, Romance, and Nudity?
There is no nudity in Fast X.
Women are wearing skimpy outfits as seen in previous Fast and Furious movies.
There is one scene where a married couple are hugging and kissing while in bed, but no sex or undressing takes place in the romantic moment.
One comment is made where a man says “Yes, the carpet matches the drapes.” Depending on the age of your child, they may not get that as a sexual comment as it’s not said in a sexual moment.
Violence and Gore: Is Fast X Too Scary For Kids Under 13?
If your kids have seen any of the Fast & Furious movies before, they won’t be scared or shocked by anything in this one.
There is a Weekend At Bernie’s type scene where dead men are propped up to look like they are alive that’s a little gross.
A few scenes offer mild blood after stabbings and shootings, but nothing overly gory or gross in those moments.
Guns, fistfights, car races and crashes, explosions, and knives are all used to affect the action sequences in Fast X.
Is Fast X Ok For Kids: Mature Topics
The main plot point in this movie is revenge.
The manner in which Dante seeks his revenge is pretty hard-core: he’s looking to take out anyone that Dominic Torretto cares about. Including a child.
Characters are seen drinking alcohol and doing drugs (“funny muffins”) in the movie.
Deaths do occur in the movie, including one Family member.
Age Rating: What Ages Can Really Watch This One?
Fast X is rated PG-13 for violence, action, some suggestive material, and language.
Parents Guide: Is Fast X Appropriate For Kids Under 13?
As always, you know your kids best.
If your kids are fans of the Fast and Furious franchise and have had permission to see the previous movies, then this one should be safe for your kids to see.
There’s nothing new or shocking when it comes to violence or action in this one, and the language isn’t too terrible.
We think kids 10 and up who have watched previous movies from this saga can handle Fast X.
If you are new to the series, however, we suggest pre-screening it before you allow the younger kids to go to the movie theater.
We also suggest watching the Fast & Furious movies in order because this one has a ton of callbacks and easter eggs that you may miss if you aren’t familiar with the crew.
