5 is next, Rock upgrade was genius, weak as hell villain tho, dude was worthless. But huge step in the franchise
7 the good bye to Brian, painful close, wish we could have seen the story if Paul was still alive and where they would have headed, awesome villain,
1 the OG, started it all, Point Break remake with cars, special film, everyone so young, but it was simplistic and watered down action compared to 5-8
4 the return of the main cast, Braga was pretty good, but otherwise the storyline was softer than other films, great to see Han, but lose Letty.
2 seeing the introduction of Teja and Roman, Billickins back, and Brian in Miami, bringing in Fuentes, and Varone was pretty decent villain
3 is the "weakest" because Lucas isn't much, DK was meh, but Han was brilliant and the racing/cars were pretty dope. Dom cameo a huge plus.
To me, pretty simple, the 4 newest are so massively upgraded, and the first 4 were more "normal" and street racing heavy, and that's how they slot in terms of overall. The bottom 4 are still perfectly good films, just not on the scale of the newest 4. Bottom line, still a solid 6-7 movies in the franchise, and even the weakest 2-3 are still pretty good and have parts worth seeing/viewing multiple times. I could watch 2 and 3 with ease and be perfectly content watchin them. Compared to 5-6-7-8 tho, course they won't live up.
