All right, we know that in every movie Dom Toretto and his crew find new and novel ways to avoid being killed ... even though in real life they’d likely perish. But we don’t watch the Fast & Furious flicks for logic. It’s all about fast cars, fast quips, crazy stunts, and of course, familia.
That’s not to say they’re not aware of their good fortune. After improbably surviving a huge shootout during F9: The Fast Saga, Roman turns to Tej and ponders the absurdity of their situation and wonders how they keep on living.

But seriously, some of these scenes are whack.
