All Fast and Furious Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

What seemed like a simple game of racers blew out the minds of many. The Fast and Furious franchise, which has now emerged as one of the top multi-billion box offices, has been a thrill over the years.

Undeniably, even as Vin Diesel confirms the end of the saga around 2024, all street racers can appreciate that every story has its own beautiful finale, no matter the critics.

The series has been a hit, especially due to its characters that brought so much fun to the blockbuster. In some cases, some have argued that there was a detachment between the movies. But, this has not stopped it from evolving. And even after the death of Paul Walker, all seems to work together to reshape its core without losing the meaning of the film.

With the above, we can look at what seemed to run off the hook and what brought out a perfect masterpiece.

If you’re a franchise fan, then we’d recommend enjoying the Fast and Furious movies in order to watch because they explain the timeline and the major events much more easily as compared to the release order.

Here we go!

10. Fast & Furious (2009)

Fast & Furious made the franchise incredible. But, it is one kind of a moody film when Vin Diesel turns evil. It just pisses me off to see him perform the rival part. It’s more of a video game compared to a movie. For instance, Luke Hobbs uses his muscles and a chain to bring down a huge helicopter.

9. The Fate of the Furious (2017)

While the Fate of the Furious seems to bring in a new taste to the franchise, the quality is disappointing. Of course, they have to use the CGI as a make-up for their frantic car chase, but the application of the CGI effects should have been practical. How could Sylvester Stallone cause a wreck on a 1950 mercury Sedan and never lose a tooth?

8. Fast& Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

The movie strongly describes two guys, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson, who get tough on each other through insults and threats. These guys would have been given a chance to perform on their own and could have the potential to be awesome. There also seems to be much folly in some action sequences, which makes the movie seem to get out of line.

7. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Though the movie has been skillfully crafted, it is also more like a video game as presented by the chase between the police and the Miami drug lord.

The beginning of the car chase is quite interesting, but this only seems to bring out stern looks from the men who have no driving sequence. On the side of romance, there are no tempting acts to prove romance at its best. It’s all blurry.

6. Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

The movie is ludicrous and furious. It’s pretty fun to allow the upcoming stars like Luke Evans to get on the match. Not forgetting the introduction of Shaw, who Toretto and his team are tracking down. 

Unsurprisingly, the movies make less sense due to the many actions. But for those who are overwhelmed by speedy car racing all over, tearing up everything, then the movies could be a good shot.

5. F9 (2021)

The introduction of the Toretto family’s connection with the criminal gangsters is a thrilling flashback. Indeed it’s a great way to explain the past plot holes. Once more, we are brought back to the original story compared to other films.

But the hefty amount of time spent on the flashbacks seems to be an issue that may make the viewer lose interest. As some put it, “it’s bigger, not better.”

4. The Fast and the Furious (2001)

Vin Diesel makes an impression that leaves his fans yearning for more- he is a rock star to them. Again, the strong feeling between the characters portrays some tight connection that brings out much fun in changing lanes in the furious racing. 

The film never had too much exaggeration in the CGI effects. With this, the viewer gets a good grasp on Vin Diesel, a hijacker, and how Paul Walker, an undercover cop, gets him.

3. Furious 7 (2015)

The affectionate mood of this movie describing the late Paul Walker is a thrill to the saga lovers. It’s also geared to deliver plenty of fun moments. Indeed this would be a perfect ending for the saga considering the role Paul Walker played.

2. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

There is perfect mayhem that is brought perfectly by the bruising action scenes that satisfy the desire of crime and street racing lovers.

However, drifting is a little annoying, especially when a car is on a track. It’s something a racer should avoid.

1. Fast Five (2011)

The movie has a breathtaking sequence with a few cars on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, and the characters are funny and ambitious. And if you love street racing, you may have at one point thought of racing your SUV into a concrete wall and back on the lane without breaking a bone.
