Every Member Of Dom’s ‘Family,’ Ranked By Bravery

To Dominic “Dom” Toretto, family is the most important thing. In his mind, the noun doesn’t cover just Mia, Jakob, Letty and his children. In the Fast & Furious franchise, everyone in Dom’s tight-knit heist crew is considered family, and over the years, each of them has proven why they deserve to be seen as brothers and sisters.

The kind of tasks that Dom and his buddies carry out on a regular basis are often dangerous. For that reason, each member is required to demonstrate extraordinary levels of valor. But who in the family is more fearless than the rest? Judging from past events, there are a number of top contenders

Roman Pearce

Roman visits Tej at his garage in Fast Five

After getting paroled and helping Brian take down Carter Veron, Roman ends up becoming one of the most important members of Dom’s “family.” He also establishes himself as one of the best drivers.
Since he is a character used mostly for comic relief, Roman Pearce’s funniest quotes also qualify as some of the best franchise quotes overall. However, he is defined by cowardice. This is first proven before the Rio mission when he almost backs out before learning that the reward is a whopping $100 million. He is also the only member of the team that chickens out during the incredible cargo plane car airdrop in Furious 7, forcing Tej to activate the parachute on his Chevrolet Camaro.


Jesse prepares to race Johnny Tran in The Fast & The Furious

Before Tej ever gets into the picture, Jesse serves as the crew’s mechanic and tech guru. Thanks to his penchant for using car jargon in speech, he has some of the best quotes in The Fast & The Furious.
Unlike Tej, Jesse never actively participates in the heists, preferring to stay behind closed doors. He isn’t keen on facing the consequences of his actions either. When he loses a bet with Johnny Tran at Race Wars, he flees in fear, forcing the team to conduct a heist without his tech support. This leads to failure. Sadly, he dies as a result of a drive-by shooting before he ever gets the chance to redeem himself.


Ramsey drives a truck as she pursues Otto in F9

The latest addition to Dom’s crew is introduced as the creator of God’s Eye. After being made a permanent member, she focuses on helping Tej in tech matters.

Though she constantly finds herself having to engage in fieldwork, Ramsey isn’t cut out for it. She mostly shies away from fights and relies on others to protect her. Basic tasks like driving scare her too. Nonetheless, her tech knowledge is admirable and it’s hinted that she is more skilled than Tej.

Mia Toretto

Initially, most of Mia’s arcs revolve around her relationship with Brian. Later in the franchise, the becomes more involved in her brother Dom’s criminal activities.
That Mia mostly stays out of the action during the first few movies puts a question mark on her level of gallantry. For the most part, she prefers to stay at home and raise her children. The only time she truly steps out of her comfort zone is in Fast 9, where she is seen battling Otto’s henchmen. And that’s in line with actress Jordana Brewster’s request for more action scenes for her character.

Tej Parker

Tej’s character development is quite good, as he is first introduced as a race referee and mechanic only for him to morph into one of the best hackers on the planet. As a result, he is relied upon to provide tech support for his team during missions.
Tej’s hands are mostly on a keyboard or steering wheel, hence he never really finds himself in situations where he needs to display extraordinary amounts of courage. Regardless, going to space does count as a bold act on his part since anything can go wrong, especially if it’s a modified car, rather than an actual spaceship being used.


Vince confronts Brian over Mia in The Fast & The Furious

Vince is introduced as one of the first members of the ‘family’ but he isn’t so lucky. He gets badly injured during a heist before dying of gunshot wounds while saving Luke Hobbs.
RELATED: Every Fast And Furious Movie, Ranked By Budget
Vince isn’t one of the smartest members of Dom’s family but he has guts. Despite knowing that such an action might make him get viewed less favorably, doesn’t shy away from getting into conflict with Brian over Mia. He is more than happy to be the one that tackles truck drivers during the early heists. Eventually, his boldness costs him his life.

Han Lue

Han starts out as a member of the team before retiring to Tokyo after Gisele’s death. There, he establishes himself as a skilled thief and street racer.
Stealing from a dangerous criminal organization such as the Yakuza requires plenty of pluck but gladly does so. And whether it’s a race, a heist, or a fight, Han never doubts his abilities. In the post-credit scene of  Fast 9, he takes his chances against Deckard Shaw, who is a certified badass and one of the best Fast & Furious fighters.

Gisele Yashar

Gisel and Han joke about Tej and Roman's fight in Fast Five

A former Mossad operative and associate of Arturo Braga, Gisele permanently joins the team when she gets recruited for the Rio heist. She ends up falling in love with Han too.
Spies face many dangers hence no one expects Gisele to be skeptical about performing a dangerous task. And she never does, with Dom describing her as a person that “isn’t afraid to throw down.” She gladly infiltrates Reyes’ inner circle in order to get the villain’s handprint ad above all, she sacrifices her own life just so Han can live.

Letty Ortiz

Letty fights the Jordanian prince's bodyguards in Dubai in Fast & Furious

Having known Dom since she was a teenager, Letty falls in love with him, leading to a wholesome relationship. She later goes undercover in Arturo Braga’s crew before being reunited with Dom.

Letty’s bravery is best demonstrated through her fight scenes. She gladly takes on corrupt DSS agent Riley Hicks and Kara, the leader of the Jordanian Prince’s all-female security team. She also threatens Klaus, the Hulk-like enforcer of Owen Shaw. Letty is shown to be at the forefront during most of the heists too.

Brian O’Conner

Brian in a prison cell in Fast and Furious 6

The former LAPD and FBI officer veers into outlaw territory when he chooses to help Dom yet he was sent to build a case against him. Afterward, he not only becomes a major part of the operations but also marries Dome’s sister, Mia.
Undercover work requires plenty of courage too since one can be outed at any moment but Brian carries out his mission effectively in the first movie. Throwing away his career in order to become a robber is a huge risk too but luckily, it pays off for Brian. The former lawman is always at the center of every mission too.

Dominic “Dom” Toretto

Over the years, Dom rises from a street racer to a heist king. And as someone who is always open to reconciliation, he gets to work with some of his enemies too.
The more dangerous a task is, the more appealing it is to Dom. Perhaps his boldest ever moment comes when he launches himself over a bridge to perform a midair, romantic rescue of Letty. And he does so without knowing whether there’ll be a car to break their fall. No other moment in the franchise tops this impressive act of bravery.

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.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

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.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
