THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (Theatrical Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Fast and the Furious—
an adrenaline pulsing, fast, engine pounding filmintroduces itself in such a manner that we forgive its raunchiness, its nudity, and sexual references much in the same way that we forgive a James Bond classic for its lack of morality. The camera angles and dare devil stunts coupled with fast, pumped cars places it in the top-of-its-class for racing films. The story begins with LA Policeman Brian O’Conner’s (Paul Walker) recruitment to take down Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel), a street racer and professional thief. Brian O’Conner infiltrates the gang; falls for Dom Toretto’s sister, Mia Torreto (Jordana Brewster); challenges Dom Toretto’s Modified 1993 Mazda RX-7 for a race against Brian O’Conner’s modified 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX; and the show is on as the two men warily assess each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
