We've Watched The Fast & Furious Movies In The WRONG Order

Considering how many Fast and Furious movies there actually are (what are we up to now? Seven? Eight?) the news that we've been watching them in the wrong order shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Obviously we've seen them as they hit cinemas, but what with prequels, sequels and two somewhat-secret shorts, the story knocks out of sequence a couple of times.

It's all thanks to the fourth flick, which rebooted the series and altered the order at the same time; add to that a tacked-on credits scene at the end of the sixth movie, and you've got a topsy turvy movie franchise to rival Star Wars.

According to Insider, if you're planning a Fast and Furious binge, you should be racking up those DVDs like so:

1. The Fast and the Furious (movie one)

2. 2 Fast 2 Furious (movie two)

3. Fast & Furious (movie four)

4. Fast Five (movie five)

5. Fast & Furious 6 (movie six)

6. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (movie three)

7. Furious 7 (movie seven)

Confused? We were too.


Basically, it's all Han's fault; the character dies during the third movie, Tokyo Drift, but turns up very much alive in the fourth installment.

Since Han then appears in the next two - and suggests at the end of Fast & Furious 6 that he's off to Tokyo - it's pretty suggestive that movies four, five and six were a prequel to the third.

THEN, of course, there's the end of Tokyo Drift (where Dom visits Tokyo) which is actually taking place in Furious 7 - are you keeping up?

OK, good. Because there's more.


Two more, actually; there are a couple of official Fast and Furious shorts which slot in between the major movies.

The Turbo Charged Prelude for 2 Fast 2 Furious, obviously, takes place in between the first and second films (it shows how Paul Walker's character ends up in Miami).

The second, Los Bandoleros, sets up the oil heist that goes down in Fast and Furious and so should be watched in between the second and fourth movies.


Unofficially? There's a movie that isn't totally affiliated with the franchise but is widely accepted to be a prequel to Han's story. 

It's called Better Luck Tomorrow and both the director and actor who plays Han have confirmed they're the same character in both films.

Basically what we're saying is that you've got the perfect reason to sit in this Easter long weekend and rewatch your favourite films in a whole new light.

Mind = blown.
