Fast & Furious has emerged from a simple B-movie about a couple of street racers into an international crime epic spanning multiple continents and more than a dozen characters. Fast & Furiologists tend to oppose on the relative merits of each film. Some prefer the earlier, more grounded entries; others like the outrageous stunts and action of the later films.
This film isn’t just about fast driving cars, luxurious ones, and sports cars. But it is more than just that. It’s cars and brotherhood and real action sense. (If you want to buy second-hand cars in UAE click here)
Basically, these enthusiasts can only agree on one thing, that is the fact that this series is terrific. So to settle these online debates, I have compiled a list to rank the best ones to the worst. Let’s check this out!
9. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Look, any Fast and Furious movie is going to be fun to watch, and listening to Tyrese and Luda deliver hammy one-liners is a great time, but the best part about 2 Fast is that it convinced Vin Diesel he needed to come back to the franchise.
8. Fast & Furious (2009)
Fast and Furious fares better with a rewatch than it did on initial viewing, but that’s probably because you already know the franchise revives itself in subsequent entries. At the time it mostly made you wonder, Is this all they’ve got left?
7. Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
The best-kept secret in the whole Fast universe is that Tokyo Drift is actually pretty great! The concept needed a reset after the band got broken up in 2 Fast, so the series went to study abroad in Japan for a semester. However, Much like Fast & Furious, Drift is improved by the way the franchise grew up after it. So thanks for the memories, Tokyo.
6. The Fate of the Furious (2017)
The living character who has passed through the Fast family, and it’s these guest stars — particularly Jason Statham, who has a wonderful sequence with a baby — who lift Fate of the Furious when it starts to drag. The dynamic between the primary players is so ingrained it works like clockwork by now, and if Dom and Letty and the rest of the Family become some kind of Impossible Mission Force overseen by Russell’s Mr. Nobody, well, that’s a Furious future worth exploring.
5. Furious 7 (2015)
The ending of Furious 7 — in which a digital Paul Walker gives one last sun-dappled smile before driving off to heaven in a white car — could have easily felt exploitative, but it’s so big and so heartfelt that it’s a perfect cinematic moment. Who doesn’t dream of getting the chance to good-bye to a lost friend one last time? Indeed, this was a very emotional film.
4. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham pull off a pretty awesome Fast and the Furious movie without him. Of course, the DNA of the Fast foundin9g father is still all over this franchise extension, what with the requisite monologues about family, the extreme vehicle chases, and the penchant for nitrous oxide.
3. Fast Five (2011)
After Fast & Furious, things were looking a little bleak for the franchise. Fast Five was a go-for-broke attempt that would either rejuvenate Fast films or be their death knell. Fortunately, it was very much the former. Five juiced up the franchise by abandoning car races in favor of a series of ever more elaborate heists and became the first in the series to make more than $200 million at the domestic box office
2. Fast and Furious 6 (2013)
The second and third spots on this list are so close, we had to go to the photo finish for verification. But in the famous words of Dominic Toretto, “It doesn’t matter whether you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning.” But Furious 6 has a few key factors that push it over the top.
1. The Fast and the Furious (2001)
No matter how big it gets, The Fast and the Furious is still about protecting the family you’ve chosen and stuck together until the end. That groundwork was laid in the original movie, and that’s what makes it the undisputed best entry in the franchise.
