The Quick 3

Ask these quick questions to hit the major themes of the film.

1. Family. What do you think it means to be a part of God's family? What makes God the perfect Father?

  • Dom and Brian (and their crew) consider themselves so close that they are like a family. Mia said, "We are family. When we have a problem, we deal with it together. We are stronger together." When we believe in Jesus, we become part of God's big family. Galatians 3:26 says, "For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus."


2. Loyalty. How difficult would it be to remain loyal to someone who isn't loyal towards you anymore? Do you agree with Dom's approach to remain loyal to Letty, no matter what?

  • Dom doesn't understand why Letty would hurt him. Brian explains that the Letty they once knew may be gone forever. He says, "You don't turn your back on family. Even when they do." Dom remains loyal to his family, no matter what. Loyalty is showing trust and constant support for someone. Shaw even says that Dom is "loyal to a fault".


3. Unconditional love. What do you think it means for God to love you unconditionally? Do you really believe that God loves you no matter what?

  • When Letty is having a hard time, Dom remains dedicated to her. He wants to support her and love her unconditionally. God loves you unconditionally as well. No matter how many times you mess up and make bad decisions, God will always forgive you and He will always love you. Romans 5:8 says, "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."

After The Movie Discussion Guide

Follow this 5-10 minute discussion guide to drive an in-depth conversation.

1. Hobbs recruits Dom and his crew in a mission to take down a notorious criminal. Hobbs needs help catching Shaw. He hasn't been able to do it on his own, and he says that he needs a full team to get this job done. What are some things that you could never accomplish on your own - but with a team, you might be able to get it done? What do you think makes a great team?


2. Brian and Mia have a baby. They love their new son very much. Psalm 127:3 says, "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him." Why do you think babies are such a blessing?


3. Dom and Brian (and their crew) consider themselves so close that they are like a family. Mia said, "We are family. When we have a problem, we deal with it together. We are stronger together." When we believe in Jesus, we become part of God's big family. Galatians 3:26 says, "For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus." What do you think it means to be a part of God's family? What makes God the perfect Father?


4. Letty lost her memory after she had an accident. She doesn't remember her family. She doesn't even remember the love of her life (Dom). What do you think she must've been going through when she was trying to remember Dom? What would it be like to lose all of your memories?


5. When Shaw takes Mia hostage, Hobbs says, "this changes everything". The military officer argued that the life of one hostage doesn't outweigh the safety of millions of people. However, Hobbs, Dom, and the rest of the crew thought Mia's life was worth risking everything. Jesus told a story in Luke 15 about a shepherd that had 100 sheep when one got lost. Jesus said the shepherd left the 99 to go after the lost one. In the same way, God pursues every single lost child who is far from Him. He considers the "one" to be of the upmost importance and value. What does this story tell you about the character of God? If you had 100 sheep and lost one, would you go after the one?

Minute By Minute Guide

Use this break down of the entire movie in addition to the “After the Movie” discussion guide. Great for repeat viewings.

:11 Tej says that money never changed him. But his friends say that he isn't the same anymore (since he got a bunch of money). They say that he isn't as generous as he used to be. Why do you think people might change when they get a bunch of money? If you became rich overnight, how would you spend your new cash?


:14 Brian talks about how he misses his old home. He says, "you don't realize how much you appreciate something until somebody takes it away." Brian is referring to how grateful and lucky he considers himself to have a great home life. Gratitude is thinking about and being thankful for all the things that make you smile. What are some things you are most grateful for? Is there any chance that you might be taking those things for granted, forgetting how lucky you really are?


:21 Shaw says that, "sometimes the simplest things cause the biggest problems." Have you ever experienced this to be true? What are some small things in your life that create really big problems?


:32 Dom doesn't understand why Letty would hurt him. Brian explains that the Letty they once knew may be gone forever. He says, "You don't turn your back on family. Even when they do." Dom remains loyal to his family, no matter what. Loyalty is showing trust and constant support for someone. Shaw even says that Dom is "loyal to a fault". How difficult would it be to remain loyal to someone who isn't loyal towards you anymore? Do you agree with Dom's approach to remain loyal to Letty, no matter what?


:38 Hobbs and Tej are insulted by the car auction worker. The man instantly judges Hobbs and Tej based solely on their appearance. He assumes they do not have a lot of money because of the way they are dressed. This is a type of hurtful stereotype that insults people made in the image of God. A stereotype is what you think about a person based on how they look on the outside, which may be unfair or untrue. Has anyone ever made assumptions about you based on how you look? Why are stereotypes sometimes hurtful and dangerous?


:52 Shaw explains that he feels protective over Letty. He found her in the hospital after she got into an accident and he wanted to take care of her. While their relationship is unhealthy and full of criminal activity, we have a God who protects us in a pure and perfect way. In what ways do you think God protects you? Why is God the perfect protector?


1:06 Dom and Letty race each other in a street race, which is something they used to do together all of the time. Dom's trying to help Letty remember him. What's one of your favorite activities that you did growing up? Do you still do that activity today?


1:14 When Letty is having a hard time, Dom remains dedicated to her. He wants to support her and love her unconditionally. God loves you unconditionally as well. No matter how many times you mess up and make bad decisions, God will always forgive you and He will always love you. Romans 5:8 says, "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." What do you think it means for God to love you unconditionally? Do you really believe that God loves you no matter what?


1:24 Dom points out that their upcoming mission is all for Letty. Dom and his crew and doing whatever they can to save Letty. They are acting very selflessly, putting the needs of Letty above their own. Who is the most selfless person that you know? How selfless do you act toward your friends?


1:34 Dom risks his own life to save Letty when she flies off of the tank. Because he loves her so much, Dom was willing to put himself in harm's way to save her life. He says that he didn't know how it would end, alluding to his "faith" that it would work out. Jesus did something similar for us. We were lost and hopeless because of our sin, destined to spend the rest of our lives apart from God. But, God loved us so much that He had a plan to save us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Why do you think Jesus was willing to sacrifice Himself for you? How does that impact your faith in Him?


1:40 Riley reveals herself to actually be on Shaw's side. She betrayed Hobbs and Dom's crew. She lied and pretended to be someone she wasn't in order to get what she wanted. Has anyone ever lied to you, pretending to be someone they weren't? How did that make you feel?


1:56 Gisele gave up her life to save her family. She was so committed to them that she thought they were worth the ultimate sacrifice. John 15:13 says, "There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." Why do you think Gisele did what she did? How do you think the rest of her friends and family feel now that she's gone?


2:01 Roman prays before dinner, thanking God the Father for their many blessings. Roman and his family recognize that all good things come from God. God is a loving Father who has good plans for His children. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." How often are you joyful? How can you pray to God, thanking Him in all circumstances?
