Storyline

This short story sets up the heist that is at the beginning of the fourth Fast and Furious film, the one where they hijack the fuel tanker road truck in the Dominican Republic. After hiding out in Mexico, fugitive and ex-convict hijacker Dom is working with his new partners, Tego and Leo, to plan a new hijacking. Dom calls upon the assistance of Han (from the spin-off film Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift). Next they have to break Leo out of prison so he can join their crew. There is a gasoline shortage in the Dominican Republic and they meet with a corrupt politician that is going to make it possible to obtain the gas the town needs. Letty arrives when she finds Dom surrounded by "skanks". Dom leaves with Letty of course. The next day, they take a romantic drive to a remote beach and re-kindle their romance prior to their next job. Written by Larry B.

Fast and Furious #4 Prequel
30 July 2013 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

No spoilers cause this just sets up the beginning of the next movie.

This short story sets up the heist that is at the beginning of Fast and Furious, the one where they hijack the fuel tankers in the Dominican Republic. Dom is working with his new partners Tego and Leo, you might remember them more from Fast5. First Dom calls upon the assistance of Han. Next they have to break Leo out of prison. There is a gas shortage in the Dominican Republic and they meet with a politician that is going to make it possible to obtain the gas the town needs. Then comes Letty, she finds Dom surrounded by "skanks", apparently this is the first time since episode 1, since at the end of 1 Dom is shown driving through Mexico alone. Dom leaves with Letty of course. The next day they take a romantic drive to the beach and re kindle their romance. You get to see a very tender part of Dom and Letty's relationship.

Very good setup, I always wondered what happened in the big gap between 1 and 4. Honestly after seeing 2fast and parts of Tokyo drift I was ready to call this franchise a dud, but Vin Diesels return resurrected it, Fast 5 being my favorite.
