As a diehard Fast & Furious fan, I get childlike Christmas morning feelings with the announcement of each new movie. From the beginning, there was something about Dominic Toretto’s deep voice and Paul Walker’s oversized tees that got me hooked.
The original Fast & Furious is a nearly perfect movie. It ranks high on my list of all-time favorites. As more movies came, the chase scenes got crazier, the stakes got higher and the explosions got bigger. That caused some early fans to fall out of love with the franchise — but not me.
I love the approach of the Fast & Furious movies. It’s understood that they all started off racing cars and stealing DVDs — and then graduated to potentially going to space in F9. It’s been an engine revving build over time.
Each of these movies are Blockbuster-style movies that many average filmgoers enjoy watching on a big screen. After rewatching each and every one, I’ve ranked the Fast & Furious franchise from the beginning.
