Fast X : Movie Review

How do you know too much is finally enough? You make and release Fast X.

I suspect that I won’t be in the minority when I say that James Gunn’s foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one impressive piece of escapism, and that it might be the most visually extravagant movie you’ll see this summer.
