Deckard Shaw’s 10 Best Quotes

Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), a former MI6 operative turned mercenary, is introduced in the Fast and Furious franchise as the brother of villain Owen Shaw. Seeking to punish Dom and his crew for what they did to Owen, he causes plenty of mayhem before eventually agreeing to work with them on missions.

Shaw has turned out to be one of the best characters in the franchise because he is not only formidable but also quite comical. Apart from cracking jokes as brilliantly as he beats people. Shaw may be an expert driver, but one way in which he impresses fans even more is through his brilliant dialogue.

When Shaw Calls Dom To Let Him Know He’s Coming For Him
“You Don’t Know Me. You’re About To.”
Deckard Shaw calls Dom to threaten him after crashing into Han in Furious 6

In the Fast & Furious 6 mid-credits scene, Deckard Shaw broadsides Han’s vehicle in Tokyo, appearing to have killed him. He then calls Dom to let him know that the hunt is on.

It’s quite the perfect way for a baddie to announce himself. It’s also scenes like these that make Shaw one of the Fast and Furious villains whom fans love. His words are a declaration of war, letting Dom know that he and his crew are about to pay dearly for what they did to Owen. He almost keeps his promise but in typical franchise fashion, he gets turned into a hero.

When Shaw Beats Up Baddies At A Party With A Champagne Bottle
“I’m What You Might Call A Champagne Problem.”
Shaw fighting with a champagne bottle in Hobbs and Shaw

In a cross-cutting scene in Hobbs & Shaw, Hobbs is shown muscling his way through a tattoo parlor while Shaw arrives at a party in London. Shaw then describes himself as a champagne problem before going on to actually brutalize everyone with a champagne bottle.

In literal terms, a champagne problem is something that’s actually not that big of a deal when compared to other problems. Trust Shaw to not only make things even more literal by using a champagne bottle as a weapon but by also proving himself to be a much bigger problem than expected. By the scene coming quite early in the movie, it helps pump up the levels of excitement.

When Hobbs Finds Shaw At His Office
“One Second…”
Hobbs and Shaw fight at the DSS offices in Furious 7

Soon after announcing his arrival, Shaw breaks into the Los Angeles DSS crew to extract files about Dom and his crew. Hobbs stops by and finds him but Shaw hilariously asks him to wait for him to finish before they can start fighting.

The best villains are always those that are composed and courageous. Shaw is portrayed as both on this occasion. He isn’t bothered that a huge lawman is standing right at the door. The former MI6 operative is confident that he will extract the files and walk out of the office without Hobbs stopping him.

When Shaw Faces Off Against Dom
“You Never Should Have Messed With A Man’s Family.”
Dom fights Shaw in the streets in Fast & Furious

As soon as Shaw and Dom get introduced to each other, one of Shaw’s best qualities becomes clear. Like Dom, he adores his family and will do anything to punish whoever messes with them.

Though the words depict Shaw as a badass character that’s about to inflict paint for grievances caused, they also paint him as quite the hypocritical character. As Dom accurately points out, Shaw’s brother messed with his family too. Letty even developed health complications while working for Owen.

When Shaw Babysits Dom’s Baby While Fighting Off Cipher’s Goons
“Where’s That Smile? There It Is!”
Deckard Shaw fights while holding Dom's baby in Fast & Furious

Shaw proves himself as one of the best fighters in the Fast and Furious franchise when he takes on several of Cipher’s men inside a plane. And he does this while babysitting Dom’s baby.

The manner in which Shaw easily juggles between soothing a baby and obliterating baddies is more than outstanding, making it one of the overall best scenes in the franchise. It’s also a sweet moment because Shaw and Dom couldn’t see eye to eye at first and now he is doing everything to ensure no harm comes to his child.

When Shaw Unsuccessfully Tries To Get Rid Off Hobbs
“This Job Requires Stealth. Look At You. I Mean, Granted, It’s Not Your Fault. But You’re Too Obvious.”
Deckard Shaw mocks Luke Hpbbs about his size in Hobbs and Shaw

Shaw isn’t too happy when he gets paired with Hobbs again in order to stop Brixton Lore. He tries to get rid of him at an airport but he still shows up on the plane, causing Shaw to tear into him.

Hobbs and Shaw enjoy throwing shady burns at each other and this is but one of the best ones. Shaw doesn’t hide his opinion about Hobbs’ physique. He believes he is too huge to do spy work, adding that his size makes enemies notice him easily. He is right but history has proven that Hobbs doesn’t need to hide in order to cause damage.

When Shaw Speaks To A Comatose Owen At The Hospital
“Rest Now, Little Brother. I Want To Settle Your One Last Score.”
Deckard Shaw looks at Owen in the hospital

At the start of Furious 7, Shaw visits his comatose brother at the hospital where he goes on a lengthy monologue about how he always finished fights for him when they were kids. He then promises to get revenge for him.

It’s a great family moment that also prepares audiences for the battles that are to come. With these words, Shaw also suggests that he is a better villain than his brother. He is confident he won’t struggle to take down Dom and his crew like Owen did. However, things don’t end up being as easy for him as he expected.

When Shaw’s Told He’ll Be Working With Hobbs Again
“She-Hulk Here Only Knows How To Smash.”
Hobbs and Shaw tear into each other after learning they'll be working together again in Hobbs & Shaw

Shaw is furious when he is told that he’ll partner up with someone to take down Brixton only to learn that it’s Hobbs. He jokingly claims that Hobbs knows nothing other than violently smashing people like She-Hulk.

It’s a nice pop culture reference that also doubles as burn. Shaw could have easily referenced the Hulk but he chooses to go with She-Hulk in order to piss off Hobbs more. Though Hobbs also gets to throw insults of his own, they don’t quite match Shaw’s superior verbal jobs. But as expected, the two eventually agree to work together.

When Dom Tries To Catch Shaw By Surprise
“Well, I Got A Lot Of Friends.”
Deckard Shaw stays calm when Dom ambushes him in Furious 7

At the height of their rivalry, Dom leads a team to ambush Shaw as he is eating. It turns out Shaw is expecting them with a backup team of his own that includes Mose Jakande. He goes on a monologue about friends and when Dom insists he has ‘family,’ not friends, Shaw says he’s different because he has plenty of friends.

Having previously worked in the military as well as the intelligence community, Shaw knows better than to be ambushed. On this particular occasion, friends turn out to be stronger than ‘family’ since Dom and Brian are forced to retreat and abandon their plan to acquire God’s Eye when Jakande’s team kills Mr. Nobody’s chief lieutenant.

When Shaw Visits Queenie
“If You Can’t Break Out Of A S—ty Prison Like This, Then You’re Really Slipping, Mom.”
Shaw advises Queenie to break out of prison in Hobbs & Shaw

Shaw isn’t impressed when he visits his mother in prison and realizes she is just sitting tight. Given her criminal expertise, he expected her to have broken out a long time ago.

Everyone in the Shaw family is somewhat of a formidable villain and no other moment illustrates that better than this one. Shaw is right about his mother getting too comfortable because she has demonstrated superior skills a couple of other times in the franchise. For example, she easily evades the police after stealing jewelry in the middle of a busy street.

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


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.

Hobbs & Dom Fighting In Fast & Furious 11 Would Bring Their Arc Full Circle

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.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

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


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)


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
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

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.
