    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    At the risk of taking this way too seriously; there is a deep conservative and Catholic ethos surrounding The Fast and The Furious franchise that I find ethnographically interesting. I understand that prayer and emphasis on the family in this movie is nothing new, but F9 really takes it to the next level beyond parody.  To clarify: I don’t believe this to be any kind of high art, or necessarily intentional, but all underlying in pandering to its demographic.
