The makers of 'Fast & Furious' can take these examples as our request to them to come to terms with reality.
"Fast & Furious" (also known as "The Fast and the Furious") is a media franchise centered on a series of action films about street racing, heists, spies and family. The saga began with the release of the first film in 2001, which launched the original tetralogy of films centered on illegal street racing and culminated in the film "Fast & Furious" (2009).
With "Fast Five" (2011), the series shifted to heists and spying, and it was followed by five sequels, the most recent of which is "Fast X" set to release on May 19, 2023. The film franchise, which stars Vin Diesel, Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, John Cena, the late Paul Walker and many other stars, has amassed a worldwide following. Evidently, the series of films contain scenes that seem like they weren't from Earth and that the makers might have forgotten the laws of science while creating them.
Films are meant to transcend you to another universe but some can be set in the real world and still be beyond our comprehension. Twitter user @KevOnStage asked: "What was the moment 'Fast and the Furious' abandoned reality? I was trying to think of the exact point." To no fan's surprise, tweets started coming in with multiple such instances.
Here are 25 of them that made us feel the franchise is too bizarre to be from this planet but also made us love the films. Your FOMO is going to be furious if you don't turn to these moments fast:

After Tokyo Drift, reality and physics completely disappeared. There were a few instances before but, that 4th movie, with Paul doing that BS on the hill. Reality had left the chat at that point— RedPillReality (@RedPillReality_) May 14, 2023

For me it was when they launched into outer space in that taped up Fiero to crash into a satellite. They were steering, and accelerating, and not immediately freezing to death. NOTHING has been funnier to me in that franchise.— Dr. Dee Knight (@DrDeeKnight) May 13, 2023

Many, many good contenders! I would like to add… In Dubai, driving around in tall skyscraper buildings jumping from building to building was like “ok, I'm not taking this series, seriously anymore, just enjoying the ride.” Lol. 🏎️ pic.twitter.com/Hy53RtuBvK— Kʀʏs Bᴜʀɴᴇᴛᴛ (@_CoachKB) May 14, 2023
I think it was when Letty was dropping from the sky, Dom jumped also from the sky, managed to tune it to perfection and catch her and land on a car safely.— Brett Leverton (@Brett_leverton) May 14, 2023
The first one. The final scene. The longest quarter mile in history. A minute and a half for something that supposedly takes less than 11 seconds.— Laird Rixford (@lrixford) May 14, 2023
