Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Heading back to the streets where it all began, two men rejoin two women to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert. When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O'Connor. But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him. And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what's possible behind the wheel. Written by
With a gross of $72.5 million on its opening weekend, the movie had the biggest April debut ever. (Anger Management (2003) formerly held the record with $42.2 million) See more »
When Brian is choosing cars out of the impound lot, he is seen choosing several Nissan GT-R chassis for rebuilding into a car to be used in the street race to work with Baraga. One of the cars chosen is an R35 GTR. As the movie takes place 5 years after The Fast and the Furious, this would be impossible, as the first GTR was not seen on US soil until 2008, two full years after the movie takes place. This continues into Fast Five - there is a GTR featured in that movie as well, however, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift takes place in approximately 2006, which is also after the events in both Fast & Furious and Fast Five.

I just saw this and to be honest I was hesitant in buying the $8 matinée ticket but wanted to see a movie and figured what the heck. First of all the 1st film was good, IMO the sequel and then Tokyo Drift were pretty bad but the 4th installment gave a ray of hope when I first saw the trailer. I liked the fact that it had a large part of the original cast.
I enjoyed this film and was surprised. They actually wrote a good story and it flowed very well, the action and driving scene's were shot and edited superbly, you did get the feeling that you were in the car at times which adds to the intensity of the driving scenes. I also like the fact that they incorporated American muscle cars instead of just imports this way the movie will appeal to people of all tastes. Overall I was pleasantly surprised of how good the film was. Also the final scene of Phoenix's demise was different than the norm. Bottom line Go see it.
