The Fate Of The Furious has now roared into theaters, and anyone who likes seeing preposterous action that defies logic and gravity, but is always tremendously entertaining, is overjoyed to have it back. After eight films, the franchise continues to just get better with age, as those involved revel in taking its set-pieces to new heights. Which is quite an accomplishment considering what has come before.
With that in mind, and to commemorate the release of The Fate Of The Furious, CinemaBlend has decided to celebrate the rollicking history of The Fast And The Furious by taking a look back at the fastest and most furiouest scenes from each movie. There's plenty to choose from, too, and you can have a gander at our choices below. For those of you that are looking for clarity, "Fastest" is the film's most dangerous and nimble moment, while "Furiouest" is its most aggressive and thoughtless. Also, if you were looking for clarity, I still love you, but you need to calm down.
Warning: spoilers for all the Fast And The Furious movies are ahead!
The Fast And The Furious
Fastest: The debut Fast And Furious outing actually stands up better than I thought it would as a film, even if its action scenes pale in comparison to what were to come after. That being said, the first ever street racing scene is particularly remarkable, as director Rob Cohen creates a vivid and visceral purview into this world and these races, especially when Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) deploy their NOS to try and gain an advantage. It's almost enough to make you forgive the use of Limp Bizkit in the soundtrack.
Furiouest: When it comes to the film's most aggressive moment, there aren't really too many to choose from. The opening scene is underwhelming, while its biggest set-piece sees the gang go up against one man, a truck and a shotgun; a far cry to what they'd go on to tackle. Instead, its most furious moment sees Dom and Brian taking part in a quarter-mile drag race over a railway crossing, with the pair then barely managing to evade a speeding train. The race ends in a dead heat, and even though Brian has the opportunity to arrest a stricken Dom, he decides against it, and their bromance is born.
