What happens in this episode?

Iain is joined by Hugh K. David from Reel History UK to take a look at two action-packed sequels. First up is The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard where Ryan Reynolds is trying to take a break from all that bodyguarding but Salma Hayek and Samuel L. Jackson have other ideas.

Then it’s all about fast cars, furious people and of course, family, with F9: The Fast Saga. The long-awaited ninth instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise (or 10th if you include Hobbs & Shaw). The latest outing seeing Vin Diesel and his family trying to save the world from rogue superspy extraordinaire John Cena.
