Johnny Tran (Rick Yune) – The Fast and the Furious (2001)
Johnny soon made a name for himself as a top street racer, capable of giving the best riders in Los Angeles a breath of smoke. This not only makes the Vietnamese-born criminal a formidable opponent for the main characters, but also adds excitement to the racing scenes throughout the film.
In addition, the position of leader and executive of the family business creates a calm, cool contrast to the hot-tempered personality of Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker). While Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is a character who values loyalty and puts his family first, Johnny is ruthless, not afraid to kill those who dare to surpass him.
Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) – 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Argentinian drug lord Carter Verone built his cover as a successful, skillful businessman, exuding confidence and control, making him a seductive but dangerous villain of the Fast franchise. & Furious. Carter’s plan to use Brian and Roman as a springboard for criminal conspiracies is a clever twist that leaves the audience restless. This “overhead” adds complexity to the story, and in turn leads to some of the action-thrillers that are integral to the film’s success.
Fenix Calderon (Laz Alonso) – Fast & Furious (2009)
Fenix has a personal feud with Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), one of the main characters. This adds to the emotional part of the story, as it creates an inevitable conflict between him and Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) – Letty’s husband. Unlike the calm look of many previous villains, the criminal in Fast & Furious 4 is a ruthless man who does not hesitate to use violence to achieve his goals. Along with Arturo Braga (John Ortiz), Fenix Calderon made the memorable villain pair of the work.
Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) – Fast Five (2011)
Drug lord Hernan Reyes is ruthless in maintaining his empire. He demonstrates this early in the film by ordering the killing of the DEA agent, setting the stage for a bitter conflict between him and the main characters. Hernan Reyes has power over the people of Rio de Janeiro because to them, he is like the symbol of Robin Hood, using crime money to support the people, even controlling the police.
Another thing that makes Hernan different from the rest of the Fast & Furious villains is the core of life and a series of wise dialogue that deserves to be made into a book. He mentions how the Spaniards used violence when they tried to occupy Brazil and failed, and compared himself to the Portuguese who brought gifts and succeeded. And when one of the henchmen said that Reyes’ money was so safe that not even God could touch it, the boss replied, “God is not my concern.”
Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) – Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
Played by Luke Evans – a brilliant actor with leadership roles – Owen Shaw exudes the elite aura of a leader and has the frenzy of an antisocial personality disorder. Smart and resourceful, he is always one step ahead of the main characters and has backup plans for every situation. The way he manipulates an amnesiac Letty is truly heartbreaking for fans. In addition, Shaw is not alone: his team consists of talented individuals, each specializing in a specific area, with access to advanced weapons that make up a comprehensive team of bad guys.
Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) – Furious 7 (2015), The Fate of the Furious (2017), F9 (2021)
Talking about Owen, we have to talk about Deckard, a villain who made a ruthless debut when he directly killed an important character of the Fast & Furious series and then left without a shred of emotion. While Owen is calculating, his brother’s destructive power is boundless: destroying the Toretto family’s house, destroying a hospital and finding a way to single-handedly beat each other on par with Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson “The Rock”) ”) in the first act of Furious 7.
Cipher (Charlize Theron) – The Fate of the Furious (2017), F9 (2021), Fast X (2023)
This character is one of the most formidable villains in the Fast & Furious series. Possessing top-notch intelligence and the ability to manipulate, Charlize Theron’s Cipher even made Dom turn his back on his family even for a short time – something that no other Fast villain has ever done. Despite her first appearance in The Fate Of The Furious, audiences soon learn that most of the other villains that have appeared before Cipher are under her control.
She is a technological genius with a huge amount of knowledge that can be compared to Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel). In addition, to mention the amount of “tech toys” and the most advanced weapons and vehicles that Cipher owns. She has an untraceable plane that was used to keep Dom’s son and conduct criminal activities. She can also command a submarine and hunt down Dom’s team with missiles. Cipher is the only villain in the series that, despite failing his mission, is not captured or killed.
Soon, Cipher will share the screen with an emerging villain, Jason Momoa’s Dante Reyes in Fast X. Dante is the son of Hernan Reyes – the crime boss of Fast Five has been destroyed. Debt of blood to pay with blood, Dante is determined to destroy Dom’s family after careful research for many years. Reyes will collaborate with Cipher, promising to bring the Fast & Furious war to a new scale with locations stretching from Europe, Brazil to Antarctica.
Actress Michelle Rodriguez called Jason Momoa’s portrayal of “the best male villain we’ve had in the whole franchise.” Momoa has described Dante as Dom’s “natural enemy”, who is “very sadistic and mercurial, a bit flashy and has an obsession with fractured paternity”. Dante’s madness, coupled with a decades-old plan of revenge and the support of cyber-terrorist Cipher will make the final chapters of Fast & Furious more thrilling and risky than any other. What kind of trial has Dom’s family ever been through?
