Leon is one of my favorite characters in the Fast and Furious franchise. "Who?" is the most common response among casual fans when I mention this. Leon was only in the first movie and according to a recent interview (link) with the actor who played him, Johnny Strong, he's probably not coming back.

And you know what? I'm glad.


I love Leon. I love Johnny. Hell, I loved everyone in the first movie. But I'm glad Leon isn't coming back, because the Fast and Furious series has developed an infuriating pattern. If you're not a bald headliner, you're gonna die. Especially if you missed a movie or two.

Letty missed #2 and #3, then died in #4. The F&F team immediately realized how much of a mistake that was (translation: the fanbase tore them a new one) and her return was teased at the very end of #5. The same movie where they finally brought back Vince, who had been gone for 3 movies, just to kill him. Gisele died in #6. I think Han died twice, in #3 and #6? Whatever....

The Fast and the Furious premiered in US theaters on June 22, 2001. TFATF turns FIFTEEN years old in 2016. It can almost legally drive. *brain explodes*

So to kick off the inevitable Fast and Furious Anniversary Rewatchathon, I thought I'd do a thing for my 15 favorite quotes. Some of 'em are meaningful on down the line, some of 'em are more memorable than others, some of 'em are just funny. Anyway, my top 15 quotes from The Fast and the Furious!


#15
"You know you owe me a ten-second car, right?"


#14
"Ask any racer, any real racer. It don't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning."


#13
"I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters. Not the store, not the mortgage, not my team and all their bullshit. For those 10 seconds or less, I'm free."

"FURIOUS 7" (2015) Review

Following the success of 2013's "FAST AND FURIOUS 6", I felt sure that the FAST AND FURIOUS movie franchise would finally end. After all, Universal Studios and director Justin Lin had proclaimed the fourth, fifth and sixth films as part of a trilogy. But to my utter surprise, the producers announced their intention for a seventh film by ending "FAST AND FURIOUS 6" on a cliffhanger.

Anyone who has seen the sixth film knows that Dominic Toretto, Brian O'Conner and their circle of friends had assisted Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) Special Agent Luke Hobbs in taking down mercenary Owen Shaw in exchange for the clearance of their criminal records and finding Dom's lady love, the amnesiac Letty Ortiz. Their actions had left Shaw in a coma and a return to normal life. However, Dom and his friends learn that Shaw's older brother, a rogue special forces assassin named Deckard Shaw, is seeking revenge against the team for what happened to the younger brother. The end of "FAST AND FURIOUS 6" revealed that the older Shaw was responsible for Han-Seoul-Oh's death in Tokyo, which was first seen in the 2006 film,...

"FAST AND FURIOUS" (2013) Review

When "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS" first hit the movie screens in 2001, I never imagined that it would be such a major hit . . . or spawn five sequels. The franchise seemed in danger of ending with a whimper with 2006's "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT", due to its lack of critical success. Three years later saw the rejuvenation of the franchise with the success of 2009's "FAST AND FURIOUS". This movie spawned a mini trilogy of its own, culminating in the latest film, "FAST AND FURIOUS 6".

The franchise's fifth installment, "FAST FIVE" ended with Dominic Toretto and his accomplices reaping the rewards of a successful heist from a Rio drug lord. In the film's Easter egg segment, U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs learns from U.S. Customs agent Monica Fuentes (from 2003's "2 FAST 2 FURIOUS") that Dom's former girlfriend, Letty Ortiz, is alive and well, and working with one Owen Shaw, a British criminal (and former Special Forces soldier) who had recently pulled a heist on a Russian military convoy. Hobbs and his new partner, Riley Hicks, recruit Dom,...

"FAST FIVE" (2011) Review

I have never seen a movie from the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise before 2011. Never. I never had the inclination to see any of these movies, despite the series being a consistent cash cow for producer Neal H. Moritz and Universal Studios for the past decade. One might begin to wonder what led me to see the franchise's latest entry, "FAST FIVE".

I might have to retract a little. I have seen the first movie, 2001's "THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS" last December. Well, I only saw two or three minutes of one of the movie's early scenes on a large screen television at my local electronics store. But those two or three minutes did not convince me to go see "FAST FIVE". The movie trailer did. When I first saw it, I had rolled my eyes in disgust at the idea of a fifth FAST AND FURIOUS movie. When I saw the trailer for a second time . . . it intrigued me. Because of this, I decided to end my ban on the franchise and see the movie.

In order to understand the beginning of "FAST FIVE", one would have to watch the past four movies - especially 2009's "FAST AND FURIOUS". That movie, featured law enforcement officer Brian O'Conner's...
