The green 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T that Paul Walker is driving at the start, is the same one used in the movie Sex Drive. There were a few differences made to it, such as the roof scoop. See more »
When Brian gets out of the car to check Tran after shooting him off his bike, he clearly slams the door of his Supra as he runs over to him, but when he returns to the car, the door is open. See more »
Just packed up a real money load and it's comin' your way. Look for "Rodgers" on the side of the truck. Don't forget my share of the deal.

An action movie with a some-what plot, hot babes, fast cars, great action and a meet-expectations.
The Fast and the Furious is probably the first movie to get me into cars while at the same time enjoying myself without having to worry about a plot.
Paul Walker plays Brian O'Conner, a hot shot police officer, who goes undercover as a car junkie Brian Spilner to see if a local street racer/mechanic by the name of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diseal) has anything to do with hijacking a bunch of cargo from DVD's, TV's, entertainment sets, and so forth while at the same time falling head over heels for Dominic's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Brian comes so close while at the same time gaining trust to the target (Dominic) itself where it's only a matter of time before the truth comes out.
The film itself has the best action sequences involving street racing and high octane action where despite a so-so plot to follow, or one that's been seen before (such as Point Break), you don't have to worry about a thing. It's just pure fun.
The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez (S.W.A.T.) as Dominic's girlfriend, Letty; Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs) as Sgt. Tanner, and singer Ja Rule in a small cameo as a contestant against Dominic.
