Fast & Furious: How It Became a Franchise

[Note: This piece includes spoilers for all six films in the Fast & Furious series – you’ve been warned!]

The Fast & Furious movies are a combination of fast cars, diverse casts and simple plotlines that add up to a guilty pleasure. 

None of the Fast & Furious movies are classic by any stretch but there’s something undeniable about the level of entertainment they provide to the audience.  When the original The Fast and The Furious came out in 2001, not much was expected of it.  The cast was largely unknown and the idea rather simple.  But the movie became a franchise, with some sputtering along the way.
