The reason this moment doesn't rank a little lower down the list is because Fast Five already gave us a pretty clear idea of the direction the Fast and Furious franchise was heading in, and so an adherence to the laws of physics wasn't really expected. That said, I doubt few of us thought director Justin Lin would take this to near-Superman levels of gravity-defying. The scene in question occurs as Owen Shaw's (Luke Evans) tank is flipped over, sending Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) catapulting into the air. Of course, Dom (Vin Diesel) has a plan: to dive from his car into the path of Letty, catch her in his arms and then land on a car that's perfectly lined up for their fall. Ignoring the fact that landing on the car itself would kill them (or that they'd fly off the bonnet like rocks), the scene in many ways marked the arrival of a totally no holds barred attitude to stunts (and physics) in these films. While some might feel the scene just goes too far the way of silliness, the last thing these films need in order to work is seriousness, so in my eyes it's very much welcome.
Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes).
