The Best 60 Seconds From Each Of The 11 Fast Saga Movies


The Fast and Furious franchise constantly pushes the boundaries with jaw-dropping stunts and intense driving sequences. Each movie has its standout moments, from street races to prison riots and even a space launch, showcasing a wide range of action sequences. The franchise’s sense of humor allows for increasingly unbelievable scenarios, giving it the license to outdo itself and keep audiences hooked.

Since 2001, Fast and Furious has been a non-stop source of high-speed thrills, and the best scenes from each movie showcase what the franchise is all about. Although there have been a lot of changes along the way, every Fast and Furious movie includes jaw-dropping stunts, and some of the most tense driving sequences ever put on film. Dom Toretto and his crew start out as street racers and petty criminals, but they escalate to multi-million dollar heists and government-sanctioned espionage. The franchise constantly attempts to outdo itself, but its sense of humor gives it license to get more and more unbelievable.

With an exciting batch of upcoming Fast and Furious projects in the works, the franchise looks set to push its boundaries even further. It’s bizarre to see how far things have evolved since The Fast and the Furious over 20 years ago, but even the first movies have some remarkable scenes which are just as thrilling today as they were back then. From old-fashioned drag races to prison riots and even a space launch, the franchise has an incredible range of action sequences. Looking back on the best moments from each of the 11 movies released so far gives a taste of what makes Fast and Furious so popular.

11 The Fast & The Furious (2001)
Brian and Dom’s first race
Two cars line up for a drag race in The Fast and the Furious.

Although Brian ends up finishing second, he shows everyone that he’s a serious contender.

Brian joins up with the rest of the street racers as a complete outsider, and he has to fight to earn respect. In his first drag race, he goes up against Dom and two other racers, and although Brian ends up finishing second, he shows everyone that he’s a serious contender. The first race of The Fast and the Furious isn’t just a great action scene with punchy visuals and palpable tension. It also tells a story and reveals a lot about the two central characters. The Fast and Furious franchise is known for its increasingly outrageous stunts, but the first movie provides hair-raising action without anything too complicated.

10 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
The demolition derby

Dom doesn’t appear in 2 Fast 2 Furious, so Brian needed another partner to team up with. Roman Pearce eventually becomes one of the key members of the Fast and Furious family, but his introduction makes him seem like an unstable wildcard. Brian watches Roman competing in a demolition derby, smashing into other cars with reckless abandon and kicking in his own broken windshield, showing his ankle tag. Brian and Roman have a history together, but even after some troubling times, Brian knows he can trust Roman. The demolition derby is a great way to introduce Roman as a loose cannon with little regard for safety.

9 The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
Dom’s cameo
Dom Toretto cameo in The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift follows a completely new set of characters, but Dom makes a surprise appearance in the very last scene to challenge Sean to a race. Dom’s American muscle car looks out of place against Sean’s Japanese drift car as they line up, symbolizing how Tokyo Drift marks a departure for the franchise. The credits roll just as the race is beginning, so the result is a mystery. The franchise eventually reveals who won the final race in Tokyo Drift, but not for many years. The cut-to-black ending shows that although Sean’s story is complete, his racing career is just getting started.

8 Fast & Furious (2009)
The gas tanker explosion

The confusingly named Fast and Furious reunited Brian and Dom for the first time since the franchise’s first movie. Fast and Furious uses more CGI than its predecessors, which allows for some truly ridiculous stunts, but the movie’s most memorable moment is primarily achieved with practical effects. As Dom and his crew attempt to hijack a gas tanker in the Dominican Republic, their plan is hampered by a strangely tenacious truck driver. The driver eventually grabs his pet iguana and jumps to safety, but this sends the truck tumbling over a cliff. It remains one of the best stunts in any Fast and Furious movie.

7 Fast Five (2011)
The favela chase
Hobbs chases Dom across Rio in Fast Five.

Fast Five could be the best Fast and Furious movie of them all, as it turns the street-racing franchise into a more broadly ambitious crime saga. Fast Five is a heist movie, and it brings in action elements that aren’t specifically limited to cars. One memorable scene features Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs chasing Dom, Brian, and Mia over the rooftops of the favelas in Rio de Janeiro. Johnson’s relationship with Vin Diesel has become notoriously fraught, but Fast Five sees Hobbs and Dom in a thrilling game of cat and mouse, and they bring the best out of each other.

6 Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
Shaw drives a tank

The Fast and Furious franchise steadily introduces a new raft of vehicles with each movie, but none have had the impact of Owen Shaw’s tank in Fast and Furious 6. Dom’s crew try to stop Shaw from assaulting a highway military convoy, but as they stop a truck in its tracks, a tank comes bursting out from the back. Tanks are usually limited to low speeds, but Shaw’s tank easily chews up cars as it barrels down the highway. The entire tank chase is a highlight, but nothing tops the initial moment when the tank appears and the crew finally understand the scope of what they’re dealing with.

5 Furious 7 (2015)
Paul Walker’s farewell

He and Dom share one last emotional drive alongside each other before the road splits, and they head off in separate directions.

Furious 7 was rocked by the tragedy of Paul Walker’s death part-way through production, after the actor was involved in a car crash unrelated to the movie. Despite this devastating incident, Furious 7 found a touching way to pay tribute to the man who had played Brian O’Conner since the franchise’s first movie. Using cutting-edge visual effects and the help of Walker’s brothers, some of Brian’s scenes in Furious 7 were completed after the actor’s death. Brian’s story receives a happy ending, and he and Dom share one last emotional drive alongside each other before the road splits, and they head off in separate directions.

4 The Fate Of The Furious (2017)
Hobbs and Shaw’s prison riot

Before Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw got their own spinoff, The Fate of the Furious showed some glimpses of their dynamic partnership. The pair are locked up together in a high-security prison, but Shaw soon engineers a prison break which frees every prisoner from their cells simultaneously. The ensuing riot is a cacophony of violence, and it highlights the contrast between Hobbs and Shaw’s styles. Shaw is wiry and agile, using parkour and advanced martial arts to weave his way through the prison guards. Hobbs, on the other hand, is a human battering ram. Rubber bullets bounce off him without any effect, and he can toss people like action figures.

3 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
Brixton chases Shaw through London

Hobbs and Shaw has its flaws, and one is that it wastes the potential of Idris Elba’s villain, Brixton. One scene which shows Brixton’s potential is his motorbike pursuit of Hobbs, Shaw and Hattie through the streets of London. Brixton’s specialized motorbike allows him to ride up on a wall, bounce between the roofs of cars, and even slide under a truck. In the end, he gets sent crashing through the top of a double-decker bus. There are only a few scenes which indicate Brixton’s abilities, and his motorbike pursuit is an example of the heights Hobbs and Shaw could have reached if he were better utilized.

2 F9 (2021)
Going to space
Roman and Tej wearing space suits in a Pontiac Fiero in F9.

The Fast and Furious franchise’s most notoriously ridiculous scene occurs in F9, when Tej and Roman blast off into outer space in a Pontiac Fiero. For another franchise, this would constitute an egregious “jumping the shark” moment, but Fast and Furious is built on one-upping its outlandish stunts. The movie knows that this scene is nonsensical, but it’s proud of its absurdity. It says a lot that Roman and Tej are chosen to become astronauts, as they usually provide comic relief. There’s no telling where the franchise could go in the future, but Roman and Tej’s journey into space shows that anything is possible.

1 Fast X (2023)
Dante’s challenge to Dom

Fast X introduces the Fast and Furious franchise’s best villain, Dante Reyes. He’s similar in some ways to Deckard Shaw or Jakob Toretto, due to the fact that his family history has given him a reason to clash with Dom’s crew, but he’s not the usual Fast and Furious villain. He faces up to Dom, causing a tense showdown, and challenges him to a race. His flamboyant persona and quirky charm are very off-putting for a villain, and Jason Momoa steals the scene. The Fast and Furious franchise will always be about high-octane stunts, but some of its quieter moments which focus on character can be just as memorable.

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.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

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.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge
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
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.
