Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

  • Sean Challenges The 'Drift King' To A Drift Race, Despite Not Knowing How To Drift ('The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#1) Sean Challenges The 'Drift King' To A Drift Race, Despite Not Knowing How To Drift ('The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift')

    There's a reason Sean Boswell, the nominal protagonist of Tokyo Drift, has only starred in one Fast film. He's not the shiniest hubcap on the block.

    After the high schooler is effectively exiled from the United States for street racing, he ends his first day in Japan by challenging Takashi Kamata, the local "Drift King," to a drift off. There's just one problem: Sean literally has no idea what drifting is.

    Han loans Sean his car, and then watches with quiet amusement as the kid absolutely demolishes it in his attempts to drift.

  • Dom Abandons Letty ('Fast & Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#5) Dom Abandons Letty ('Fast & Furious')

    After a job to swipe oil from a tanker truck goes explosively pear shaped, Dom decides it's time to stop putting his loved ones in danger. Yet, after kindly telling his buddies to pack up and go home, Dom decides the best way to protect Letty is to take off without saying a word and leave her a few thousand bucks on the nightstand. Yikes.

    Dom abandoning Letty is, by itself, a crummy thing to do to a person who left a comfortable, law-abiding existence in California, USA, to go be with the love of her life. (Letty knew what she was getting into when she tracked you down, Dom. She literally says, "Ride or die!") Yet it's the long-term consequence of this abandonment that really twists the knife.

    In hopes of clearing Dom's record, Letty agrees to go undercover for Brian, which leads to a series of extremely unfortunate events for the whole crew over multiple installments in the franchise. Dom's decision becomes even harsher in hindsight when we discover, in Fast 7, that he married Letty at some point in the past. This means Dom didn't just abandon his long-time lover in Fast & Furious, he walked out on his wife. Double yikes.

  • Jakande Attempts A Military Assault In Los Angeles ('Furious 7') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#2) Jakande Attempts A Military Assault In Los Angeles ('Furious 7')

    Unlike many of the Fast saga's charming or quirky villains, Mose Jakande is strictly business. He's a ruthless mercenary with a literal army at his beck and call. He doesn't quip, he seldom smiles, and he's absolutely not messing around. So it kind of makes sense that he'd do everything in his power to get Ramsey, since she's the only person who can stop him from exploiting her God's Eye hacking program. 

    Dom understands the stakes, and tells Brian that "war is coming to us whether we like it or not." Except, war doesn't just come to Dom and his crew; it comes to Los Angeles. 

    Jakande enters LA's air space with a military helicopter and proceeds to blow the ever-loving shiznit out of local landmarks. It doesn't matter what kind of fancy hacking software you've got, that kind of heat would immediately attract the attention of every armed force the US has at its disposal.

    As Tony Stark would say, "Not a great plan."

  • Deckard Shaw Wildly Overreacts To His Brother's Fate ('Furious 7') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#7) Deckard Shaw Wildly Overreacts To His Brother's Fate ('Furious 7')

    In the Fast saga, family is everything, so it makes sense that Deckard Shaw would want revenge on Dom for kicking his little brother out of a plane. Put that way, it almost sounds like Dom deserves it, but context is key.

    First of all, Owen Shaw is no innocent man. He's a mercenary responsible for taking the lives of several people and causing a considerable amount of collateral damage. He knew the risks inherent to his line of work, and so did Deckard. Second of all, while Owen was indeed booted from a plane and badly wounded, he wasn't slain outright. He's seen in the opening of Furious 7 in what appears to be a coma, and in the next movie he's not only walking around but healthy enough to carry out a military strike on Cipher's plane.

    So, knowing that Owen is, essentially, fine, what does Deckard do? He goes to Tokyo and crashes his car into Han's, ostensibly ending Han's life. He then blows up Dom's house and nearly takes out Mia, her unborn child, Brian, and their son. After that, he proceeds to track Dom and his crew around the world, blowing up government agents left and right, and even teams up with a straight-up terrorist to wipe everybody out.

    But he and Dom have a beer at the end of Fast 8, so apparently they're cool now.

  • Dom Runs A Heist Without His Full Crew ('The Fast and the Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#3) Dom Runs A Heist Without His Full Crew ('The Fast and the Furious')

    In the first Fast and Furious film, Dominic Toretto and his crew are covertly swiping DVD players and digital cameras from container trucks. Brian O'Conner, then a wet-behind-the-ears LA cop, just can't believe Dom's the bad guy, because he's so cool and in control.

    On the latter two counts, Brian's not wrong. Despite Dom's imposing frame, he's more of a thinker than a bruiser. That's why it's strange that he orders Letty, Vince, and Leon to go through with a heist they're clearly not ready for. This happens after Jesse freaks out and flees from Race Wars, leaving them short a man. Dom's sister tells him not to go, but Dom ignores her. Later, Leon says things don't feel right, but Dom shuts him up. Even Letty objects, but Dom just won't listen.

    The heist ends in a spectacular failure, with Vince nearly bleeding out, Letty injured, and Brian revealing he's an undercover cop - shattering his relationship with Dom for several years.

  • Tej Tries To Off His Racers ('2 Fast 2 Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#11) Tej Tries To Off His Racers ('2 Fast 2 Furious')

    Whether hacking into a metropolitan grid or taking bets on water sports, Tej Parker has a gift for giving the people what they want. He's a born crowd pleaser, and that's never clearer than in the opening of 2 Fast, when he promises his audience a "surprise" finale to the four-way race among Brian, Suki, Slap Jack, and Orange Julius.

    Tej delivers on that promise by taking over the drawbridge at the end of the race to make it rise up as the racers approach it. It makes for a great set piece, but within the reality of the film, it's a highly dangerous and potentially lethal obstacle to put in a driver's path.

    Of the three cars that make the jump, Brian's Nissan Skyline is mostly unscathed, because he's our hero, but Suki's Honda S2000 takes significant damage and Slap Jack's Supra is totaled, leaving him limping out of the wreck. Surprise!
