Fast and Furious Movies ranked from worst to best.

Fast and Furious, or The Fast Saga as it is now known – had a good start. But now, as more and more movies are being added to the Franchise, fans don’t seem satisfied. The Franchise has been under fire for quite some time now. A tonne of action-adventure cliche and mediocre performances are the things bothering viewers. People are accusing it of replicating Kathryn Bigelow’s action movie Point Break.

However, Fast & Furious was able to continue a prolonged franchise, as opposed to Point Break. It only had one lousy remake after the original one. The Franchise took nearly five movies to discover its actual nature and intended group.

It’s time to figure out which film from the Franchise is on the lead when they are graded from worst to best. So, let’s dive in!

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw (2019) Blu-ray - Psycho Drive-In

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Director: David Leitch

Writer: Chris Morgan, Drew Pearce, Gary Scott Thompson

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba

IMDB: 6.5

The 8th Fast and Furious movie featuring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham wasn’t taken well by the critics. Separately, they both can do wonders, but together they make a sloppy pair  in this movie. Unfortunately, even the two biggest action film stars could not save the Franchise from its outdated wacky humor.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Director: F. Gary Gray

Writer: Gary Scott Thompson, Chris Morgan

Cast: Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson

IMDB: 6.6

The Fast Saga has been building sheer insanity for some time now. But this 8th installment in the saga went too far. Its cold plot involves nuclear and submarines, all set in a way making the movie somewhat irrational. Fans were not really satisfied with the movie’s climax or plot. They believed the Franchise was trying everything to see what would stay.

Fast & Furious (2009) - IMDb

Fast & Furious (2009)

Director: Justin Lin

Writer: Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson

Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez

IMDB: 6.5

It was the fourth installment in the Fast Saga. People were relieved to see the original cast back. They referred to it as the first REAL sequel to the original one. Although fans were happy to see the original cast, the filmmakers’ failure to provide a competent story lessened their excitement. They considered it one of the grumpiest and least enjoyable Fast and Furious movies by far.

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) - 3/5 — The Boneyard

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Director: John Singleton

Writer: Gary Scott Thompson, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas

Cast: Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Cole Hauser

IMDB: 5.9

It is the second installment in the Saga without Vin Diesel, as he declined the project due to dull writing. The opening ten minutes of the movie is entertaining, thanks to the late director John Singleton’s hyper-kinetic style. However, his high-end aesthetics couldn’t save the film’s dubious plot. According to critics, the movie is not well-thought but made with skill and style.

Fast & Furious 6 (2013) - IMDb

Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

Director: Justin Lin

Writer: Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson

Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson

IMDB: 7.0

One of The Fast Saga’s finest traits is its capacity to momentarily redefine itself with each film. Surprisingly, this Franchise doesn’t settle on any specific formula till its sixth installment, Fast and Furious 6. According to critics, the movie has elevated humor and great action sequences. Fast & Furious 6 continues on the successful box office formula that made Fast Five a commercial and financial triumph.

F9: The Fast Saga (2021)

Director: Justin Lin

Writer: Daniel Casey, Justin Lin, Alfredo Botello

Cast: Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster

IMDB: 5.2

The F9 is the ninth main installment in the Fast & Furious saga and a follow-up to The Fate of the Furious (2017). However, in the previous ones, the storyline appeared to be stuck with no new directions to pursue, but Lin saved it! With his direction, F9 grants the Fast Saga the kick it needs to propel towards the finish line. The movie received mostly good responses from the viewers.

Furious 7 (2014)

Director: James Wan

Writer: Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson

Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson

IMDB: 7.1

When the movie first came out, Vin Diesel was really hopeful. He stated, “This is an Oscar-winning Picture. Nothing is ever going to match the magnitude of this one.” Unfortunately, his judgment was proven wrong. But the feeling wasn’t totally out of line since it became the fourth highest-grossing film of all time when released. Critics took it well and praised the movie.

The Fast and the Furious (2001) - IMDb

The Fast and the Furious (2001)

Director: Rob Cohen

Writer: Ken Li, Gary Scott Thompson, Erik Bergquist

Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez

IMDB: 6.8

The Fast and the Furious sequel is not the best in the Fast Saga. But Rob Cohen’s effective direction essentially made it inevitabl y engaging to this day. Critics were happy that Cohen at least understands how to keep things rolling and the action scenes interesting. Another reason that film worked was the chemistry between Dominic Toretto and Brian O’Conner.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

Director: Justin Lin

Writer: Chris Morgan

Cast: Lucas Black, Zachery Ty Bryan, Shad Moss

IMDB: 6.0

The movie introduced Han (Sung Kang), the best character in the Fast Saga since Dominic Toretto. Han proved to be one of the most fascinating characters of all. The series made three more prequels just to keep him and ended up returning him to life in F9. However, the Tokyo setting is a wonderful and captivating backdrop. It is the first film in the Franchise to feature an international location. Critics admired Lin highly and gave mostly positive reviews. They claim Lin is one of the filmmakers who understand how to make any movie captivating and entertaining.

Fast Five (2011)

Director: Justin Lin

Writer: Chris Morgan, Gary Scott Thompson

Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson

IMDB: 7.3

It is about bonds and relationships in the Fast Saga. The story involves strong men fighting and then hugging it out. And yeah! The film features brainless logic-defying action scenes performed in stunning cars. But the movie was positively received by critics, who praised the humor and action throughout the movie. The New York Times says, “The only moment you aren’t looking at the screen is when you’re laughing so much that your eyes are drooping.” It was one of the successful sequels of 2011, according to Box Office Mojo.

you can write “they made the sloppy pair in this movie”. You cannot generalize their abilities to be bad judging from one movie.

inevitable alone is not suitable here…write inevitably engaging etc. find a good vocab
