Favorite Moments: Vin Diesel Destroys A Nuclear Submarine With A Car

We all have our favorite moments in movies, books, and games, moments that stay with us long after the story is over. This column is my attempt to examine my favorite moments and see why they stick with me.

The movie:

‘The Fate of the Furious’

The scene:

Why it’s great:

There comes a point in every action franchise where the laws of physics are thrown out the window in favor of crazy action scenes that strive to be as fun as possible. The Fast and Furious franchise has gotten to that point, having gone from a simple movie about Vin Diesel participating in illegal street racing, to a movie about Vin Diesel outracing a nuclear submarine, and then proceeding to destroy said submarine with a car.

Is the scene dumb?

Oh yeah.

Is it scientifically implausible at every turn?

You betcha.

Is it fun?

Oh so much.
