Digital Cover: The Fast Cast of ‘Furious 7′ Speeds Back

  1. The Great Train Robbery – Fast Five (2011)

Everything changed in Fast Five—and for the better. Before the franchise’s fifth entry, the Fast & Furious movies were delicious junk food for car fetishists, but in this 2011 edition, the influences evolved from Autoweek to Ocean’s Eleven. And what better way to kick off a balls-to-the-wall heist movie centered around swanky automobiles than to pull off a breathless and impossibly over-the-top train robbery in which the stolen goods are, yes, fancy sports cars? It makes George Clooney and Brad Pitt’s schemes seem like amateur hour.
