Dom being Dom, nevertheless, means he after all can improvise out of a difficult state of affairs. Therefore the Charger incredulously driving down the facet of an nearly vertical dam, outrunning the primary explosion. However with the automotive seemingly crashing for good within the water under, there may be now no escape when Dante blows up the remainder of the dam, burying the Torettos underneath numerous gallons of water.
Frankly, the pair needs to be useless. Though they need to’ve died on the dam, and actually, Dom ought to’ve died many instances over the course of this film, starting when he drove his automotive head-long right into a brick wall in Rome. So ignoring physics, there may be one Hail Mary but to be revealed which we expect can save him…
