Brian O'Connor, an officer of the LAPD, joins the ranks of Toretto's highly skilled racing crew undercover to convict Toretto. However, O'Connor finds himself both enamored with this new world and in love with Toretto's sister, Mia. As a rival racing crew gains strength, O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies.Written by

When Jesse first pops the hood of the green Eclipse before the first race, you can clearly tell it's a non-turbo eclipse. The car has a non turbo 420-a motor; not a turbo 4G63T. Also if the Eclipse was truly a 10 second car, it would visibly have a front mount inter-cooler which it never has in the movie. See more »
[after Johnny Tran is arrested]
DVD players were purchased legally. All we've got on Tran and his boys are some low-rent weapons charges and some outstanding speeding tickets.
So, they're out.
Father bailed them out. Is this the kind of intelligence I can except from you, O'Connor?
What, you're gonna pin this on me?
Hey, I can pin this on whoever I want to. Perks of the job.

The beginning of it all
This is the movie that created a brand new mega movie franchise. Generally when there's movie franchises they make movies in the form of trilogies. But later this year when Fast and the Furious 6 comes out it'll be the sixth movie in the series which shows the level of box office appeal the series has to be able to pump out an average of 1 movie every two years is quite impressive. The only other series doing that kind of productivity with different directors on basically a once every 2 year rate is the James Bond series.
Vin Diesel who outside of his other series Riddick movies generally puts out mediocre to bad performances was basically made to play the role of Dominic Torretto. Same goes for Paul Walker, normally when I see he's going to be in a movie I don't bother watching it. But somehow when these 2 guys get together in a movie about driving fast cars with hot girls it turns into a guilty pleasure.
