Goofs

Why would Johnny Tran need to purchase stolen/gray-market engines? Cars that use the Nissan SR20 motor are sold legally in the North American Market, making the Nissan SR20 motor readily available at any Nissan dealership or even if he was referring to a Japan/Euro Market variant, he would've no trouble importing them instead of having to use a fence (Ted).

First drive-in movie of the millenium
28 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
