I have been binge watching the Fast and Furious franchise recently and I am OBSESSED! With that and all of the memes taking over every social media since Fast and Furious 9 came out, I knew it was time to cover it. There were MANY ways this could go. Do I cover the lore? Or maybe the insane physics? Not today. Theorists, I decided I need to answer the most important question. Which Fast and Furious movie is the MOST fast and furious?

    MatPat's theories are strong. But not as strong as family.

    As a car lover and as someone who loves the whole world of racing the first 4 are the best as they are actually based on cars there are already sooo many action movies about cops and saving the world the whole series is based and rooted in cars so it sucks that it has all straight from that

    I actually like the first four movies way more. I've been telling my friends for a few years now that the movies are no longer about cars. I even complained that one of the movies had virtually no car action at all.

    10:49 yes, yes you should. How many times and times again should most characters be dead and what kinda logic (outta the F&F 2 brain cells) the movie uses to explain why they're still alive. (Other than saying they're the antagonist or extremely famous)

    I noticed that the audience scores were the same across the board from the beginning to the end. Unfortunately, terrible critic reviews always ruin viewership and gross as too many people actually care about those worthless opinions.

      I don’t care what some critics think and no one should. We all have our own opinions and that’s now it should be.

  • StormDweller

    Ok. Now, please, do a theory on Why the Fast and Furious series is connected to the Riddick universe. Dom is furious and Riddick is a Furyan. Also with each movie from the FF series going further with epicness, action could pretty much easily happen on other planets at some point. Please.

    Can we have a "Would have been totally dead" Count for these movies? Because I really hate those movies, because everyone seems to be just shielded by their own stupidity in this :/

    Better make 'em the Furious Family franchise. Car guys loved this just because of the cars in the movie. If they want to go for a better budget and better ratings, it is better to change and leave the past. Not gonna lie, if Paul didn't die and the first 5 movies didn't hit the curious minds of the people, maybe this movie franchise won't be like what they are to date. not everyone considers cars as their passion and a big part of their lifestyle, luxury and Hollywood-like films are what the majority like. The dumber and more furious their new movies are, perhaps disregarding their roots and changing their franchise is easy. They don't deserve that "Fast" anymore.

    I wonder if the people who liked the first 4 still liked the ones after as much. I haven't watched all of them but the later ones seemed more generic heist/action films compared to the earlier ones and therefore aimed at a wider audience than the first few that catered to a more niche audience

    In my own opinion, Furious 7 was great, but sad towards end because it was the final time we would see Paul Walker’s character and a heartfelt tribute to Paul Walker. Furious 7 is top tier.

  • john98765333

    Wouldn;t this only really account for people rewatching it and such? As how is a person supposed to know the contents of the movie before they see it? And if they already know, why would they waste money to go see it? I think the money made on the film is a more accurate estimation of how much people liked the movie before it. Since if they liked the last movie in a series, they are likely to want to go watch the next one to see how it goes.
