10 Fast & Furious Scenes Viewers Love To Watch Over And Over

Nothing gets the heart racing like a fast car, and the Fast and Furious franchise has an abundance of them. With eight movies out so far and F9 coming out soon, there are plenty of scenes available to fuel every car fanatic’s desires. Although the movies go back all the way to 2001, they’re still a favorite of many fans all around the world.

In preparation for the F9 release, fans have been streaming the Fast and Furious movies to remember the story so far and their favorite crew of drivers. The franchise has plenty of memorable scenes that fans can’t help but rewatch. Whether it’s one of the many epic street races or the death-defying car stunts, these are some fan-favorite scenes, worthy of a repeat.

The First Race

Dom and Brian race forr the first time in The Fast and the Furious

The one that started it all. In a bid to gain Dom’s respect and some street cred, Brian raced against Dom for the first time in The Fast and The Furious. While he was confident his Mistubishi Eclipse GSX would win against Dom’s Mazda RX-7, he was in for a rude awakening when his car started falling apart and he lost.
For the audience, this scene was an adrenaline-filled introduction to the world of street racing. It set the tone for the movie and set up the two protagonists in a memorable way. While Brian learned an important lesson on winning, the audience discovered being fast and furious is about more than just the make of a car.

The Bridge Jump

By the second movie of the franchise, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Brian had a little more street racing experience. It came in handy during the last stretch of a street race when he had to drive his Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R over a movable bridge. This time around, he knew just the right move to make and when, which led to him winning the race.
Apart from Brian making a smooth landing without a single wheel or bolt out of place, this was an exhilarating scene. While the Fast and Furious franchise has certainly delved into more chaotic car stunts in later movies, this bridge jump was definitely an impressive one.

The Race In Tokyo

Han teaches Sean how to drift in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift

Han’s last race in The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift became his final one. While racing for his life in the orange and black Mazda RX-7 against Takashi, Han weaved through traffic, people, and dodged bullets—all without breaking a sweat.
Although the race through the streets of Tokyo was invigorating and filled with seat-gripping suspense, the explosive ending made the scene worth rewatching. In addition, the F9 trailer showed that Han survived this tragic accident, making it even more interesting as the audience tries to figure out how Han is alive.

The Train Heist

Dom drives a car out of a train in Fast Five

Fast Five shifted the focus from street racing and moved the franchise into bigger storylines. One of the earliest scenes of the movie was the train heist. What began as Mia, Brian, and Dom stealing a 1965 Ford GT40 ended with the two men driving off a cliff and into the water, seconds before they would have smashed into a bridge.

With the new tone this movie set for the rest of the franchise, the stunts did get bigger and more dangerous. The hand-to-hand combat on the train, Brian’s near-miss, and Dom’s epic last-minute save were just too good to watch once.

The Prison Break

Dom escapes from prison bus in Fast Five

Initially set up at the end of Fast and Furious 4, Dom’s escape from the prison-bound bus culminated in a high-speed chase in Fast Five. Unlike other scenes in this movie and the rest of the franchise, this one wasn’t heavy on the car stunts, but the bus roll is still memorable.
The fifth installment of the franchise leaned heavily on the message of the importance of family and this daring breakout was one way of showing that. Even though Dom had accepted his fate to go to prison, his family didn’t give up on him and they saved him the best way they knew how.

The Dom Vs. Hobbs Fight

Although the expensive cars, stunts, and drift racing were a big part of what made the Fast and Furious franchise popular, some of the fans’ favorite scenes didn’t involve cars at all. For example, in Fast Five, Dom and Hobbs went against each other in a hand-to-hand combat scene worthy of a WWE screening. The tension between the two was set up in the famous “This is Brazil” scene, later leading to this fight. Both men showed off their strength, throwing punches and taking blows with barely a break in between.
For a franchise focused on the characters showing off their strengths through their ability to pull off the most complex car maneuvers, this fight scene was refreshing. It not only showed that their abilities went beyond shifting gears in the blink of an eye, but also set up Dom and Hobbs as equal rivals.

The Vault Heist

If there’s one scene that made a lasting impression on the audience, it’s the vault heist in Fast Five. After pulling off an impressive, albeit conspicuous, heist, Dom and Brian drove off with a vault full of money hooked to their cars. Seeing them drag that large metal structure as they drove fast to escape the cops in pursuit was both awe-inspiring and hilarious—especially when Roman and Han joined in.
The most impressive thing about this scene was when Dom cut Brian’s car loose, changed direction, and turned the vault into a wrecking ball. As the vault crashed into several police cars, it was impossible to look away, right up to the moment Dom jumped out of his car. The plot twist at the end of the vault switch added to the intrigue of the scene, making it a must for most to rewatch and see how they pulled it off.

The Tank Rescue

Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez as Dom and Letty in Fast and Furious 6

The franchise got a little more daring in Fast and Furious 6, bringing in a military tank in one of the most epic scenes. Although watching the tank roll over everything in its wake was quite iconic, the scene became even more memorable when Letty got thrown off the tank and Dom caught her mid-air.

The scene, which never fails to get the heart racing even for viewers who know it’s coming, is a mastery of action stunts. Besides the action, Dom saving Letty added an emotional component that made it one of the best scenes of the entire franchise.

The Airplane Chase

Dom escapes from burning plane in Fast and Furious 6

The Fast and Furious franchise is popular for displaying the most impossible stunts with unbelievable finesse. In Fast and Furious 6, Dom and his team chased Deckard Shaw onto a plane and then brought the plane down, armed with nothing but some fast cars and some pretty sturdy grappling hooks.
The scene had everything fans love about the franchise; from a fast car chase on the runway to a furious fight scene on the plane, to the emotional toll of Giselle’s untimely death. Each aspect was balanced perfectly, making for a scene that’s hard not to watch over and over again.

The Last Ride

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel as Brian and Dom in Fast and Furious 7

Fans of the Fast and Furious franchise, along with the cast, were hit by the sad news of Paul Walker’s (Brian) death just before the filming of Fast and Furious 7 wrapped up. As a touching farewell to him, the final scene of the movie showed Dom and Brian (with the help of his brothers and CGI), having one final race.
The memorial scene to Paul struck a chord with many fans, making it a scene worth remembering and rewatching. Not only did it pay respect to Paul’s memory in a beautiful way, but it also gave fans a fitting farewell to Brian, a character who was part of the beloved franchise from the very start.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.

Fast & Furious 11
