Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
This is a short film which is a prequel to Fast and Furious involving the fugitive ex-convict Dom assembling his crew in the Dominican Republic to plan a hijacking of a road train gasoline tanker truck.
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 loyalty really lies.

Rob Cohen's original casting choices were Mario Lopez as Dominick, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Brian, but studio execs feared that the reteaming of the Saved by the Bell (1989) co-stars, would confuse audiences. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were eventually cast in the roles. See more »
When Jesse first pops the hood of the green Eclipse before the first race, you can clearly tell it's a non-turbo eclipse. The car has a non turbo 420-a motor; not a turbo 4G63T. Also if the Eclipse was truly a 10 second car, it would visibly have a front mount inter-cooler which it never has in the movie. See more »
These are the additions, this is the basic layout of the car, and this is what it could look like when it's done. Red, green, whatever.
Hey man, you should be going to MIT or something.
No man, I got that attention disorder.

This movie, has by far the best car racing scenes ever filmed, as well as the best cars. They are gorgeous machines, and these guys certainly can drive them. Great story, not just another Gone in Sixty Seconds where all they did was steal cars, there actually weren't very many race scenes as you might expect, but every shot is filled with cars, and lots of them. The acting is great as well, as usual Vin Diesel gives a brilliant performance, as Dominic Toretto. It has already earned a massive following, and when you leave the theaters you will be filed with such a massive adrenaline rush, that you and all your buddies will be left with the feeling that you must go out and race. Everybody I have talked to have said the same thing, it just has this crazy adrenaline rush it gives you. I highly recommend this to all fans of cars, and racing, but it has something for everybody so see it even if you are not a fan of either, bottom line, just see it!!!!!!
