"Fate Of The Furious" Referenced The Franchise's Most Ridiculous Scene Ever And It Was Perfect
WARNING: Spoilers ahead! ✈️
True Fast & Furious fans probably noticed references to one of the more ridiculous sequences in the franchise in the latest film, The Fate of the Furious.
With the Shaws (Jason Statham and Helen Mirren) back in the mix in Fate of the Furious, there were quite a few references to the first Shaw the franchise introduced, Owen (Luke Evans)...
And with Owen, one thing comes to mind: the iconic never-ending plane runway scene from Fast & Furious 6.
In the original scene, Owen attempts to escape from Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) by having his plane pulled onto the runway of the army base they're on, and driving his car into the cargo hold.
And in The Fate of the Furious, Dom pulls that same maneuver right around the 24-minute mark, driving his car down a runway into the plane that houses Cipher (Charlize Theron) and her team.
It's perfectly reminiscent of that legendary Fast & Furious 6 clip, except while Toretto gets away with it in Fate, Owen is not so lucky at the end of the sixth movie.
If that wasn't enough, Owen's brother, Deckard (Statham), returns right around the one hour and 45 minute mark in Fate of the Furious. He jet-packs into the cargo hold of an enemy plane with Owen, and they have this funny exchange:
Deckard: Now, don't go getting any ideas. You and planes don't have a good history.
Owen: No shit.
Deckard: Let's go, Scarface. These assholes ain't gonna kill themselves.
