Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Eight years on, a new evil rises from where the Batman and Commissioner Gordon tried to bury it, causing the Batman to resurface and fight to protect Gotham City... the very city which brands him an enemy.
Los Angeles street racer Dominic Toretto falls under the suspicion of the LAPD as a string of high-speed electronics truck robberies rocks the area. Brian O'Connor, an officer of the LAPD, joins the ranks of Toretto's highly skilled racing crew undercover to convict Toretto. However, O'Connor finds himself both enamored with this new world and in love with Toretto's sister, Mia. As a rival racing crew gains strength, O'Connor must decide where his loyalties really lie.

Hey, wait, hold up! I don't have any cash, but I do have the pink slip to my car
Wait, you just can't climb in the ring with Ali 'cause you think you box!
[points to Vince]
He *knows* I can box! So check it out, it's like this: If I lose, winner takes my car clean and clear. But if I win, I take the cash, *and* I take the respect!
To some people, that's more important
...That your car?

On some prints, after the credits, there is a brief epilogue showing Dominic's fate. He is shown, driving alone in a red Chevelle with black racing stripes, on a desolate road by the coast in Baja, Mexico. He narrates about his life 'I live my life quarter a mile at a time ...'. See more »

Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) wants to join the family of the head of California street racing (Vin Diesel)...but why?
The plot is comic book level; the dialogue is very VERY bad...but who really cares? This is a throwback of those dumb 1970s drive-in movies...it's for people who like loud, fast films filled with mindless action, attractive women, cars...and nothing else. I didn't like the film. It was too loud, too silly and way too long for a dumb action flick. What saves it is some truly incredible action sequences (the "hijacking" sequence towards the end was unbelievable), some very nice, innovative direction, a cast that manages to be good despite the script and a very good performance by Vin Diesel. This was supposed to be Walker's breakthrough film but Diesel steals it away. Also it looks kind of silly to have tall, lean, pretty boy Walker against tall, muscular, severe-looking Diesel.
See it for the action and Diesel. During the slow spots admire the cars or the women.
