Fast and Furious Franchise Recap (2001-2013)

As you may have noticed, I’ve reviewed the entire Fast and Furious franchise so far in the past week and a bit. I thought I’d make a post for all the reviews, and only take my best one or two thoughts on each movie, in case you don’t have time to read every review. Here we go!

The Fast and the Furious (2001)

“The care is implemented on the cool physical appearance of the cars, and there’s not as much care implemented on the intellectual level of the movie; but who really cares?  It gets the adrenaline going, and that’s the movie’s intention.” 74/100.

“To truly enjoy the hell out of this, you will have to turn the logical part of your brain right off. To a point where it might actually cause brain damage; and frankly, this movie just isn’t worth that. I remember this being much better; so suffice to say, this is 2 big of a disappointment.” 40/100.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

“The star cameo is one of the only things worthwhile about this bland endeavour. It’s a formulaic plot; but the drifting feels fresh and fun. The cinematography looks the most pristine out of the first three. It also has Han and fast cars.That’s almost all this has going for it.” 52/100.

Fast & Furious (2009)

“The racing scenes are lots of fun, and it’s an adequate revenge story. The title is really the only lazy thing about the movie. However, for a racing movie, there’s a lack of non-stop kinetic energy.” 65/100.

Fast Five (2011)
Fast Five (2011)

“Fast Five fills up its gas tank and the cast and crew bring it all to this fast-paced, energetic, compelling ride. It’s not only fun, but a good movie, as well.”  82/100.

And so far in the franchise, the average score is 67.167.

  1. I love this review recap! Don’t know if you’ve done the same for other franchises/series, but I vote you should going forward.

    1. Thanks, Foogos! 🙂

      This is the first time I’m doing it; but I like it, too 😀 I think I’ll do the same for little reviews, and just make a post of five of ’em, because sometimes, I really don’t have a lot to say about a movie! Lol.

      1. Also a great idea. I like the concept of the YES or NO movie review. Doesn’t get much more minimalist than that.

  2. Daniel, great blog series. I actually have only seen the original over ten years ago. Just bought all five on DVD today and might have to do similar blog series for the franchise. FYi – I did a series on my blog where I reviewed all 23 Bond movies at the following link after I received the Bond 50 Blu Ray set for Christmas. Was quite an experience watching them all in a row. Link to those posts is below:

    1. Thanks, Todd! Definitely send me the link if you review the franchise. I’ll definitely read that series eventually, I might want to watch them all first… (I’ve only seen Skyfall and Die Another Day, unfortunately :()

      1. wow… you need to go ahead and get the Bond 50 Set then. It was an amazing experience watching them all in a row. I’d love to hear your take on it
