Fast And Furious: Why Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto Is The Worst Change

The Fast and Furious is a long-time running action movie franchise that spanned over two decades. Many fans loved the series despite its flaws, but recently, they have come to the realization that Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto, is the worst change of all.

The movies have been criticized for their unrealistic action stunts, but it seems that the lead character, Dom, is becoming too perfect that he has no more flaws to show. Vin Diesel started leading the series after Paul Walker’s tragic passing.

Dominic Toretto was an interesting character in the early Fast and Furious installments. He is one of the original cast and has been the lead in seven out of nine installments. He was a thief with trust issues, and he had a difficult time giving up the life of crime. On top of that, Dom had anger management issues which seemingly became his struggle throughout the series. All of these made the character relatable and imperfect.

Dominic Toretto Has Changed In The Recent Fast And Furious Movies

But, in the recent Fast and Furious movies, Dom is almost invincible. Indeed, there is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham to match his strength, but being too perfect is not making the character fantastic. There was no struggle for him anymore; Dominic always figured things out, and his every decision seemed to guarantee success no matter what the challenges were.

There have been many changes in the Fast and Furious movies since its first launch. While change and innovation are necessary, it does not help when it removes the realistic parts. From the ever-growing cast to the stunning visual effects, the franchise has been very successful at the box office. It is the characters that make the movies a little far-fetched, especially Dominic Toretto.
