There’s a new Fast & Furious movie coming to theaters this year, kind of. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham have their own spin-off with the curious title Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. That got me thinking about the rest of the franchise and some of the ridiculous names it puts to work.
With eight other movies and even a couple of theme park attractions, the Fast & Furious series doesn’t exactly follow the rules of what to call sequels. It pretty regularly swings for the creative fences. Sometimes it’s a home run. Other times, though, it’s just plain bad.
How bad, you wonder? I’m glad you asked. Given my self-proclaimed status as the foremost Fast & Furious franchise expert on this planet, I’ve deeply examined the catalog of films in the series and ranked the titles myself. So join me, family, as we look at every Fast & Furious movie title, ranked from worst to best–with a couple of surprises along the way.
