Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Fast & Furious...

An exploding tanker truck, crushed cars and bullet-riddled vehicles are only a part of the property damage that is portrayed in this film. In addition, characters are repeatedly shot at. They are also killed, blown up and injured in car accidents. While attempting to steal a tanker full of gas from a moving truck, a woman is dragged behind the semi, and nearly thrown from the trailer before jumping onto another speeding car. A police officer chases a criminal through a plate glass window, across rooftops, through a busy street market and into an apartment before both men fall from a second-story level onto a car below. Several characters are shown with bloody injuries. A man dangles another man out of a window by holding one foot. Drivers race through busy city streets. They crash into other cars, roll vehicles and nearly hit pedestrians. A man threatens to crush a man with a car engine. A police officer disobeys orders. A scene of cockfighting is shown.

Hi. My child asked me if he could see this movie last week, and it looked like a good movie, but I heard it was pretty violent. So I came here to find out what that was. I then watched the movie myself and my opinion changed. I noticed you said in your review:
“What the filmmakers don’t show are any of the negative outcomes these drivers’ actions would surely have on the general public, i.e. accident reports, insurance claims, property damage, bodily injury or, more seriously, funerals following a hit-and-run incident.”
There are plenty counts of property damage and physical injury directly related to driving recklessly in this movie. Also, you say the filmmakers don’t show negative outcomes like “funerals following a hit and run incident”. A funeral following a hit and run incident is what this movie is based upon. Dom attends Letty’s funeral following a hit and run incident. He then tries to find the man who did it and take down a drug lord, not get in to the cartel. Also, if crushed cars were a reason for this to be rated PG-13, Herbie the Love Bug movie would be rated that. Please don’t make up your own plot, you might be depriving some kids of a great movie. I taught my children the difference between real life and make believe, they wouldn’t act this out in real life.
