Fast and Furious Movies

What started out as a simple cat-and-mouse game between an undercover police officer and an illegal street racer has become one of the most commercially successful action/heist/spy movie franchises ever, complete with its own kids' TV show. The series offers plenty of thrilling car (and plane, helicopter, tank, and submarine) battles, explosive destruction, and even heartwarming messages about family and protecting those we love -- as well as one of the most diverse casts out there. While these films have never received critical raves, there's no denying that they're a lively, action-packed ride. This list, presented in release order, includes all of the movies in the Fast saga and the related Fast and Furious spin-offs. Looking for other great picks for families?
