Buy it... if you can forgive Brian Tyler for perpetuating one of the most consistently anonymous franchises of film scores in modern cinema.

Avoid it... if you cannot accept the replacement of the concept's established main theme with a new, more darkly dramatic identity dedicated to this plot.

F9: The Fast Saga: (Brian Tyler) At some point, simple racing cars weren't going to be cool enough to float the "Fast & Furious" concept, so director Justin Lin resorts to train-like armored vehicle battles and rocket cars in space to retain audience interest. That's right, in 2021's F9: The Fast Saga, a rocket car takes characters of this franchise into orbit so they can ram a satellite and, naturally, return safely to the planet. With even more sequels in the pipeline, this franchise exists only for two reasons: to conjure up impossibly ridiculous stunts involving machines that could be classified as street-legal vehicles and to extend the side-drama of the many characters portrayed by actors still alive and willing to make some money. The plot of this entry involves the revelation that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto (the actor is in his 50's at this point, but who cares?) has a brother, Jakob, conveniently played by John Cena. Their competition and reconciliation drives the typical evil mastermind plot that might have existed at one time as a sticky note on the big white board of James Bond villain ideas. Really, the highlight of the plot is the return of several affable characters set to join Dom's team once again to do all the cool things that attractive mercenaries do. As one might expect, critical reaction to F9: The Fast Saga was muted due to the idiocy of the action sequences, but less discerning audiences propelled to movie to impressive grosses. Himself a stalwart of the franchise, composer Brian Tyler has contributed music to most of its movies, and two of the entries for which he didn't compose the music tracked in his material instead. Few composers get the opportunity to compose the music for half a dozen scores in the same blockbuster series, and Tyler's personal affinity for auto racing and functionally modern action music continues to make him the perfect fit for these films. Amazingly, the composer has managed to maintain extraordinary consistency in the quality of music for the "Fast & Furious" franchise, his scores increasingly comfortable in their role as song placements become less intrusive in later entries. Oddly, though, that consistency entails a lack of both superior and detrimental music, each score in the concept earning a decent but underwhelming three-start rating. Nothing in this equation has changed with F9: The Fast Saga, but how Tyler gets to that rating is different, the composer opting for a more standalone identity for this venture.
