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

Fast & Furious 4

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”

Dom, Brian, and Mia hug in Fast Five

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”

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 7

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 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.

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
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

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.

is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
