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.

Can anyone explain the reason this film shot?
12 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

It was hard after watching this 20-minute movie to rate it. I rated 4 out of 10, but I am really not sure about it. The whole 18 minutes the movie takes, I was wondering why a person should watch this video. It has not to do with fast cars running, people chasing, gunshots or any other kind of action. I mean that this film is not for the fans of Fast and the Furious.

What you see in this video is a typical day of Dom and his fellas in a village. Although I like the characters of this movie series, this wasn't satisfying. I have to admit that there was a quite beautiful landscape, but that's all. Nothing more.

I appreciate Vin Diesel as an action actor and I am a fan of some of his movies, especially Fast and the Furious, but he should not writing and directing movies. He is good enough at playing the guy that tears other people down.
