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
Vin Diesel originally wanted to make the 4th and 5th films back to back, but Universal decided to take some time to see how the current movie would work out before moving on to a fifth. Diesel was allowed to direct an 18 minute short film set in the Fast And Furious world, which will be available on the DVD. See more »
Torreto's Buick Grand National has the unmistakable sound of a V8 when in fact all GNs had a turbo V6. Obviously a V8 could have been transplanted but then why go to all the trouble to make this car cosmetically correct as a Grand National (right down to the Grand National logo on the front license plate)?

Ever played a video game on acid? Neither have I, but it sure as hell would have to be pretty similar to watching this movie. Sometimes a blast, sometimes weird as heck, but always with lots of groovy colors.
I like the first FnF. It introduced fun characters and the cars were cool and all. The sequels had to be pretty lame, because this franchise is nothing without Vin. Walker could be cut in a heart beat, but not our good, role-playing friend Diesel (I believe he played a wizard). Even when the going is redonkulously over the top, he remains cool as hell. I like his overly calm hero type. Let's hope he doesn't do another children's movie after this.
There are a couple sweet nods to the first movie, which is always appreciated by us continuation prostitutes. Sequel must be a sequel, damn it! End chase almost ruins the movie, because it is such brain vomit it might actually make you go blind. But, there was enough of the fun times to give me strength to suffer through that debacle. Overall, a decent flick, but could have been tons better with a quality director.
And yeah, it was about time to have a Mustang in there!
