#5 Dante

Jason Momoa plays the maniacal, charismatic personality. Accompanied by his infectious laughter, he is able to create an extremely humorous persona. Ironically, throughout the course of the film, he is the villain, materializing vicious incidents that severely impact Dominic’s crew,  who is played by the one and only Vin Diesel. As the antagonist of the film, he always has a specific outcome: to destroy the lives of the other characters.

#4 Deckard Shaw

Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) is referred to as “The Challenger”, and he is extremely confident, assertive, and intimidating. He has a desire for possession throughout the “Fast X” movie, which makes him fearless. As the audience observes him they can see the lethal, collected and impressive individual that he is in the movie. Shaw owns luxurious vehicles and dresses maturely and fancy as he walks around with the power of defense as he physically knocks bad guys.  

#3 Letty Oritz

Michelle Rodriguez plays Letty, a resilient, loyal woman with the personality of a tomboy in the movie “Fast X”. While Dominic’s crew is a men’s club for missions, Letty is unconcerned about being the only lady on the team. She is an intelligent woman with a positive mind, always encouraging their team and being the “hero” when their crew members are in a dilemma. Letty, the professional in arranging vehicle repair, can repair vehicles much faster than the men in the crew, which makes her No. #3 from the top five characters. 

#2 Uncle Jakob

John Cena (the one and only appealing American professional wrestler and actor) plays a physically muscular man who is acknowledged for his dexterity. He plays the “uncle” in the film “Fast X.” Uncle Jakob is a lively personality: the uncle who is incapable of neglecting his nephew, Brian, Dominic’s son.

Throughout the film, Uncle Jakob is a captivating character with an energetic persona, making him seem the “cool uncle” as he cherishes Brian and keeps him free from any physical and mental harm. 

#1 Dominic Toretto

Vin Diesel, the authentic Dominic Toretto, is a compelling and influential character. His voice is extremely gruff, which makes him seem even more physically muscular throughout the movie “Fast X.” He possesses a volatile temper, especially when his loved ones are in peril. Yet, Dominic preaches virtuous behavior and loyalty. He is the most recognized character from the “Fast and Furious franchise, a fact that can be attributed to his unique self, and most importantly, his appealing acting.

Dominic is a father who has empathy for his own family, as the husband of Letty Ortiz, “the father to” their son, and a friend to his crew. Through his experienced missions, he has remained resilient and loyal to his crew, which fundamentally makes him car racer #1.
