7. Driving a car onto a moving boat (‘2 Fast 2 Furious’)

2 Fast 2 Furious is when things began to get 2 reckless, as seen in this scene that finds Brian (Paul Walker) and Roman (Tyrese Gibson) driving a classic car from the road onto a moving yacht in open water. When you consider the objective — rescuing Eva Mendes — it sounds pretty reasonable.

6. Running across a falling bus (‘Furious 7’)

Aboard an express bus to doom, Brian escapes the overturned vehicle — which happens to be slowly tilting off the edge of a cliff — by sprinting across its long exterior and jumping onto the back of Letty’s (Michelle Rodriguez) car. Is he ever gon’ fall off? No.

5. Playing tug-of-war with a whole-ass helicopter (‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’)

By the time Hobbs & Shaw dropped in 2019, the Fast & Furious franchise had gone full-blown Marvel Cinematic Universe. The main characters were no longer just whip-game wizards — they now possessed attributes that are damn-near superhuman. Exhibit A: Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) goes full Wonder Woman, dodging missiles before one-arm lassoing a helicopter with a chain. We can smell what The Rock is cooking — and it reeks of pure bullshit.
