The first ridiculous moment comes early in the trailer, showcasing the unreal strength of the newest Toretto, Jakob (John Cena). It’s a brief moment, but it shows that borderline super-heroic power runs in the family, as Jakob grabs a faceless goon and straight up slams him so hard against the floor that the poor bad guy goes directly through it down to the next floor. Jakob’s brother Dom (Vin Diesel) has shown similar preposterous feats of strength, whether it was fighting ten men at once in “F9: The Fast Saga” or stomping on concrete so hard that the parking garage he’s fighting Shaw (Jason Statham) in collapses all around them.
At this point, one has to wonder — are people like Jakob and Dominic Toretto really that strong, or is the structural integrity/architecture in the world of “Fast & Furious” just so weak that they can tear through walls and buildings with ease? Whatever the case, I’d argue you still have to be ridiculously strong to pummel people the way the Toretto family does.
