The Most Emotional Scene From Every Movie

Aside from that scene in Fast & Furious 7, the Fast & Furious series isn’t exactly known for its emotional moments, even if it is one of the most melodramatic movie franchises in cinematic history. However, thanks to the connection these characters have built over the series, there are a surprising amount of meaty and emotive performances.

The Fast & Furious series is built off grounded crime and high stakes drama, but even when the franchise shed it’s very 2000s skin and abandoned its street racing novelty in favor of becoming an imitation of Mission: Impossible, the emotional scenes still remained intact. In fact, some of the most emotional scenes come in the series’ later years.

2 Fast 2 Furious: The Car Scramble

2 Fast 2 Furious

As the Fast & Furious series is known, almost to a humorous extent, for its emphasis on family, there tends to be a lot of melodrama underlining most of the movies. But on the other side of the coin, there are entries in the franchise that don’t even try to make the audience feel anything.
Though 2 Fast 2 Furious doesn’t exactly make viewers cry, it’s fun as hell. The closest the movie gets to audiences feeling any kind of emotion is on an exciting level, and the most exciting moment comes with the car scramble, in which dozens of souped-up imports bounce out of a huge garage as Brian tries to confuse the feds.

Hobbs & Shaw: Samoan Warriors

Hobbs & Shaw isn’t exactly one of The Rock’s best movies, as it’s a spin-off considered inferior to the main series and introduces the franchise to superpowers. If the series hadn’t jumped the shark three films ago, it certainly has now.
However, there are some highlights that keep the film from being terrible, most of which is the camaraderie between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. But even better than that are the Samoan Warriors, in which Johnson was able to include a lot of his culture into a huge blockbuster movie, and it’s the only passionate moment in the film.

Fate Of The Furious: Elena’s Death

Elena’s pregnancy is one of the things about the series that makes no sense, but it doesn’t make her death any less shocking. As she is the mother of Dom’s son, the FBI agent was Dom’s one-time lover who got caught up in the middle of one of the F&F crew’s covert missions.
Being one of the reasons why Cipher is the best villain of the series, she shows no mercy as she holds Dom’s child behind glass whilst one of her henchmen murders Elena at point-blank range.

Fast & Furious: The Reunion

It just goes to show how strong the acting actually was in The Fast And The Furious, as even though they’ve only featured in one movie together, when Dom and Brian meet for the first time in eight years, it was a transformative moment.

Fast & Furious is sometimes seen as the worst movie in the series, and it’s the first in the franchise to sloppily mesh the street racing and grounded crime of the original with the globe-trotting, espionage superhero-ness of the recent movies, but it nails the first scene between the two stars. There’s so much weight to the history Dom and Brian have together, and with it being so long since they last met, that weight is felt in just the looks that they share.

Tokyo Drift: Han’s Death

Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift Han Car Crash

Hans’ return to the franchise was one of the moments the series was so bad it was good, as it made no sense and totally turned the Fast & Furious timeline into a contrived mess. But before that happened, Han had one of the most hard-hitting deaths in the series.
Tokyo Drift gets a bad rep, but it continues not only the hair-raising races but the high stakes too, as killing off one of the lead characters rarely happens these days (just in case the studio wants to make a sequel). Though audiences had only spent an hour with Han until his nasty death on the streets, it was tough to watch after he had become somewhat of a mentor to Sean.

Fast & Furious 6: Gisele’s Death

Gisele Yashar in Fast and Furious

Before donning the whip and invisible jet in the DC cinematic universe with Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot’s breakthrough was in the Fast & Furious series as Gisele Yashar. Though it’s only Gisele’s second outing with the Fast & Furious crew, she definitely made her mark as one of the gang, which makes her death all the more devastating.

As Gisele forms a romantic relationship with Han, who is holding on to her when she’s hanging from an airplane, she sacrifices herself to save his life, and it almost makes audiences forget how ridiculous the whole scene is.

Fast Five: “I’m Pregnant”

Being Brian’s love interest ever since The Fast And Furious (except for Monica in 2 Fast 2 Furious), which had been going on for 10 years at this point, his relationship with Mia is surprisingly one of the most earnest in any movie. In a genre where the lead actors bounce between relationships with every new release, it’s endearing to see Brian stay in the same happy relationship for the whole series, and that’s why Mia’s pregnancy announcement is so powerful.
The scene is made even better when she tells Dom, as she’s almost scared about how he’ll react, only for him to be completely emotional. However, this scene might be to blame for being the catalyst of the whole “Family” meme.

The Fast And The Furious: Brian Blowing His Cover

Though the razor-thin storytelling is one of the franchise’s flaws, the original The Fast and the Furious is a grounded crime movie with a lot of heart. Throughout the whole movie, audiences see Brian and Dom form a brotherly bond, and that’s why it’s heartbreaking when Dom finds out Brian is an undercover cop.
At the end of the movie, Brian is at odds over whether or not to blow his cover. If he doesn’t blow his cover by radioing in for medical help, Vincent will die, but if he does blow his cover, Dom will most likely want to kill him. When Dom does find out, his anger and sense of betrayal are visible, and there hasn’t been a more intense scene in the series since.

Furious 7: “It’s Never Goodbye”

The final five minutes of Furious 7 seems as if it could very well be from a completely different movie, as the whole 140-minute movie doesn’t slow down between action set pieces. From jumping off sky-scrapers to cars reversing out of airplanes, the movie was for all intents and purposes a theme park ride, as Martin Scorsese would say.
However, after Paul Walker died during the production of the movie, he was given the most beautiful send-off possible, as it showed Brian playing on the beach with his family before a final drive with Dom. It then ended with a montage of clips of Walker bonding with the cast from the previous movies, and it’s one of the times the franchise could have ended.

Fast & Furious 11 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)

Summary

Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death

Summary

Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)

Summary

Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
