The Most Ridiculous Scene From Each Of The Saga’s 11 Movies


Fast & Furious movies thrive on delivering over-the-top spectacle and impossible stunts that audiences find entertaining. The franchise has featured wild stunts like jumping cars, dragging a safe through a city, and even going to space in a car. Each movie challenges itself to top the previous one, with Fast X showcasing Dom driving down a dam to escape an explosion as the most ridiculous stunt yet.

With each new movie in the Fast & Furious franchise, Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and his crew pull off increasingly impossible and ridiculous maneuvers while driving sports cars. The Fast and the Furious kicked off the series with a relatively down-to-earth story about street racers who hijack trucks on the side. From there, the movies’ heist and espionage plots only grew in magnitude to include ongoing battles with gangsters, terrorists, and the law.

Dom and his right-hand-man Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and their family pull off wild stunts ranging from “jumping” cars, taking down planes, and literally going to space in a car. Fast & Furious fans know that what they are seeing is impossible and are even able to laugh at how ludicrous it is. Yet the Fast & Furious movies maintain a steady audience by repeatedly promising and delivering over-the-top spectacle. Each movie boasts at least one ridiculous stunt, with the upcoming Fast 11 challenged to top them all.

Related Every Fast And Furious Movie In Chronological Order Fast and the Furious launched a massive franchise – but the films were not released in chronological order! Here’s how to watch.

11 The Fast And The Furious (2001)
Dom and Brian dodge a train.

The first Fast & Furious movie ends with Dom and his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) discovering that Brian is an undercover cop, and Brian killing Johnny Tran (Rick Yune) to avenge Jesse (Chad Lindberg). Dom takes off in his Dodge Charger and Brian drives after him. Despite the betrayal, Dom and Brian have a moment of begrudging respect when they race each other one last time before going their separate ways.

Dom and Brian speed across a set of train tracks, narrowly avoiding an oncoming train. Dom then crashes his car and Brian gives up his, so Dom can flee the police. While this scene might have seemed implausible at the time, it is shockingly realistic compared to the rest of the franchise.

10 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Brian jumps from land to a boat in a car.

2 Fast 2 Furious focuses on Brian and his childhood friend Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) working with undercover U.S. customs agent Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) to bring down the drug lord Carter Verone (Cole Hauser). In the finale, Monica’s cover has been blown, and she is being held on Carter’s boat, while Brian and Roman are on land. In order to rescue Monica, Brian drives a car off a ramp to jump to the boat. Roman is panicking in the passenger seat throughout the sequence. This scene makes Brian shouting “Cars don’t fly!” at Dom several movies later somewhat ironic.

9 The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
Sean drifts through a crowded intersection without hitting anyone.
Han drives a car in Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift serves as a standalone that is primarily remembered for introducing fan-favorite character Han Lue (Sung Kang) – but even the worst Fast & Furious movie needs at least one impossible racing maneuver. Tokyo Drift depicts average American high schooler Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) quickly gaining driving abilities on par with most professionals. At one point, Sean is racing and drifts through a very crowded intersection without hitting anyone. The Fast & Furious characters always seem to avoid killing random pedestrians, but Sean was exceptionally lucky.

8 Fast & Furious (2009)
Dom and Brian race through tunnels.
Cars racing inside a tunnel in Fast & Furious

When they reunite in Fast & Furious with the common goal of tracking down the heroin trafficker Braga (John Ortiz), Dom and Brian find themselves racing through tunnels inside a mountain range. The tunnels are just wide enough for the cars to fit and there is little to no light. Yet they are able to drive with the same precision as if they had plenty of space in broad daylight.

In the final race, Brian smashes his way out of the tunnel and crashes. Dom causes another driver to crash, triggering an explosion that destroys the whole tunnel system. Dom then speeds out of the mountain just as it collapses, and just in time to save Brian from Fenix (Lazaro Alonso).

7 Fast Five (2011)
Dom and Brian drag a safe through a busy city.
Brian and Dom drag a vault through Rio in Fast Five

The plot of Fast Five revolves around Dom, Brian, and Mia planning a $100 million heist to buy themselves new lives. They recruit various characters from past movies to accomplish this, including Han and Roman, along with Gisele Yashar (Gal Gadot) and Tej Parker (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges). In the movie’s climax, the crew attaches kingpin Hernan Reyes’ (Joaquim de Almeida) massive bank vault to Dom and Brian’s cars. They then drag the vault through Rio with impossible dexterity. They also manage to hand off the real vault to the rest of the crew and carry away a replacement.

6 Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
Dom launches himself out of a car and catches Letty in midair.
Dom catches Letty in midair in Fast & Furious 6

Fast & Furious 6 saw the return of Dom’s longtime girlfriend Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), who Dom and the others believed to be dead. While Letty does not remember her relationship with Dom and is working with the movie’s villain Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), Dom is still determined to protect her. During a high-speed chase, Dom crashes his car into a highway wall to throw himself across the gap between two highway lanes and catches Letty in midair after she is thrown from the tank.

Letty later asks Dom how he knew there was a car to break their fall, and he says he didn’t. How this move worked at all is the bigger mystery. Then again, the crew does take down a plane using cars later in the movie, so nothing is impossible for them.

5 Furious 7 (2015)
Dom jumps between skyscrapers in a car.

Dom manages to scare even Brian by jumping a car between skyscrapers in Furious 7. The team travels to Abu Dhabi to track down the God’s Eye, so hacker Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) can use it to find Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). They go undercover to a party in a luxurious skyscraper to retrieve the device from a car stored on one of the highest floors.

When a fight ensues, Dom and Brian take the car and Dom drives it at top speed, smashing through the skyscraper’s windows and launching the car into the next building. When it turns out the breaks are malfunctioning, Dom repeats this to jump to a third building. And yet Brian barely climbing up a bus hanging off the edge of a cliff and jumping to grab onto Letty’s car is a close second for Furious 7’s most ridiculous scene.

4 The Fate Of The Furious (2017)
Cipher launches a “zombie cars” attack.

Cipher is regarded as one of Fast & Furious’ best villains, who introduces a new level of terrifying yet absurd threats in The Fate of the Furious. In the Fast & Furious scene known as the “Raining Cars” or “Zombie Cars” sequence, Ciper hacks into the systems of every self-driving car in New York City and sends them all falling out of a parking garage at once. Despite the realism behind its execution, “Zombie Cars” is one of Fast & Furious’ craziest concepts – even crazier than Dom blowing up a submarine in the same movie.

3 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
Hobbs and Shaw bring down a helicopter with a truck.

In their own spinoff movie, Deckard Shaw and Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) appear to have gained some of Dom’s ability to break the laws of physics. While on a mission to save the world from the cyber-genetically enhanced soldier Briston Lorr (Idris Elba), that movie’s main duo find themselves in a truck vs. helicopter fight. Shaw is able to drive the truck briefly into the air, so Hobbs can hook Brixton’s chopper with a cable. Hobbs and Shaw are able to avoid being pulled off a cliff and bring the helicopter down with several more trucks adding to their weight.

2 F9 (2021)
Roman and Tej go to space.

Roman and Tej going to space in a rocket-car in F9 tops everything else in the Fast & Furious franchise. In order to prevent Cipher from uploading the Ares device to a satellite, which will enable her to take control of the entire Earth’s digital network and weaponry, Roman and Tej are sent into space in a car outfitted with rocket boosters. They don space suits and take off from a plane. Fast & Furious’ space scene is the punchline of many jokes about how insane the series has become.

1 Fast X (2023)
Dom drives into a dam and escapes an explosion.

Fast X has many ridiculous stunts, but none quite like Dom driving down the face of a dam to avoid a massive explosion. With his young son Brian (Leo Abelo Perry) in the car, Dom drives almost straight down, narrowly escaping the flames caused by two trucks crashing into each other, and lands in the water. This tops almost everything else in the movie, including smashing helicopters, making dangerous jumps between cars, and Dom lifting a car. Yet Fast & Furious is expected to produce more sequels in the future, which will doubtlessly include more ridiculous stunts.

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.

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.
