Epic Video Turns "Fast and Furious" Fight into Lightsaber Battle
< >
The Fast and Furious franchise has experienced a resurgence recently, following the positive reception of James Wan's Furious 7 and the highly contentious production of Fast 8. But now, thanks to an awesome VFX video, we know what the series really needs: a lightsaber battle.



Everything is made better with lightsabers, of course, but this seems like a particularly great fit. The above video, made by YouTube user Immersion FX, modifies the climactic fight between Jason Statham and Vin Diesel in Furious 7 so that they're fighting with lightsabers rather than wrenches and scrap metal. The editing is pretty impeccable, and definitely doesn't make the two action stars look like "candy-asses."

This is far from the first time lightsaber effects have been added to a fight scene—and while it is one of the cleanest edits we've seen, nothing can ever compare to the most powerful Sith lord ever to hit the internet:
