In the end credits, the main players have their names listed next to a sketch of their cars. Both the sketches and names are the same colors as the cars. See more »
As shown on the DVD, director Rob Cohen and editor Peter Honess had to trim down the scene where Dom character is hijacking the truck towards the end of the film to secure a PG-13 rating. The trims made to avoid an R rating were the shots of Vince's arm being ripped by the wiring on the truck and the agony he expressed. See more »
Obviously this is a remake of Point Break but so what!! The storyline is adequate. The racing scenes are first-rate. And the soundtrack was pretty decent too. Heck, that was all I personally expected and truthfully the movie outperformed my expectations. Vin Diesel did a great job as did the Keanu wannabe. Non-stop action is all I asked for in this one and I got it. 7/10 for living up to itself.
