The events were happening simultaneously-- We see it mainly from 7 different perspectives If we do it by how they approached the plane we can break it down like this:

1. Dom
2. Brian/Mia
3. Roman/Tej
4. Han/Gisele
5. Letty
6. Hobbs
7. Shaw & the other bad guys

Assume for easiness sake that we split time evenly throughout the entire runway scene on each perspective and divide the total miles by 7. This equals out to roughly 4.1 miles...

Which is not an absurd amount of runway space--especially since this is a non-commercial, military runway. The US has a 7+ mile runway in Denver
Somehow people fail to recognize this obvious element ("Film time doesn't always fall in line, 1-to-1 with 'real time.'" - have they not seen any of Zack Snyder's films?) and yet they claim that part of the movie is stupid due to the length of the runway. Riiiiiight...

(Not to mention that there are way more ridiculous parts otherwise in the film.)

Default Fast & The Furious Seven

One simple scene immediately makes 3 better and 2 is better with the introduction of 2 main players and gives more background on Brian's moral compass.

The cool thing is to make fun of the series but it is lean, fantastic getaway entertainment.
I just recently saw Parts 1, 2, 3... FOR THE FIRST TIME, in there entireties, and that's exactly what crossed my mind after now seeing all six parts.

For Universal, the last thing they want to do is kill this golden goose. You could potentially be looking at another 3 films in this franchise. That's huge for Universal.

Still, as it stands, I'm out. As curious as I am about Fast 7 because of the post credit sequence, the way this film ends just feels right for these characters and this mythology that they've created. It's always been about Dom and Brian. And seeing them where they are at the end of this film is just the right touch to leave the franchise behind. Roman's voice over says it all as the film cuts to black.

Hell of a four part story.
I'm not too sure fans would consider this a "Four Part" franchise after what had just transpired in 'Fast 6.' Seeing the events that take place in 'Fast 6,' especially with what was presented to us from the end credits, I think the majority of fans would not have wanted Universal to end it there. Given the new details at the end of 'Fast 6,' as to how or why events in 'Tokyo Drift' took place, is why this crazy saga will continue to turn itself into the franchise' tree-of-chaos that it is. It makes everything into one big "Fast & Furious Loop" that just keeps on growing.

How about a 'Fast & Furious' viewing marathon as follows...

He's actually a pretty obvious choice for the director's chair here. Plus, you have to think that Diesel probably had a say on who they got, and Lin as well, so I think they know he is the right guy to take the franchise in a new direction. I'm not worried.
I believe that to be the case as well. It reminds me of when David Yates took over as director for the "Harry Potter" films with 'Order of the Phoenix'. You can easily see how his vision drove the last four films into much darker territory, especially since the characters were only getting older. It also reminds me of when Summit Entertainment hired Bill Condon to direct the Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2. Yes, you heard me right, Twilight Nevertheless, those films where much darker and sinister in tone and execution + Breaking Dawn Part 2 turned out to not only be the final film in the series but it was just as popular as the first film, if not better.

I'm not a hardcore 'Fast' fanatic, nor am I a hardcore 'Bond' fanatic, but I do believe writer Chris Morgan deserves much of the credit for what has been done with this franchise, hence the last four films to date. Whether he collaborated with Justin Lin or not, in the writing process, it seems that James Wan and Universal love what this guy has done up until now too. He gave Parts 2 and 3 an all new life, and a level of respect after what had been done in Parts 4, 5, and 6. I'm still not sure if Chris' intentions were to write 'Tokyo Drift' the way he did, by presenting a story of the "future" with major ramifications, which in turn needed to be explained later by 3 future films. Rest assure, it may have been pretty ballsy, yet it has really paid off for this franchise.

I'll help you out, no he had no idea there would actually be a 4-5-6 with the rest of the cast returning and them actually being as successful as they are. These films aren't that deep and it is pretty easy to write in reasons for character actions after the fact. They had an opening and did some good fan service by writing a one off film (Tokyo Drift) back into the series.
