Heading back to the streets where it all began, two men rejoin two women to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert. When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O'Connor. But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him. And from convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what's possible behind the wheel.Written by
Released the same year as The Final Destination (2009), the fourth film in another franchise, whose title is also almost identical to the tile of the first film, omitting any number or subtitle. Coincidentally, the second, third, and fifth films of both series have also been released in the same years. See more »
During the final chase scene through the tunnels, the tunnels appear to be 1 to 2 miles in length. While not technically impossible to build a 2 mile tunnel through a mountain, it is practically impossible to build one through a mountain of stone without using some sort of technology that would give the position of the tunnel away. Dynamite would do it in a reasonable amount of time, jackhammers and shovels would not. It's unlikely that the tunnels could exist without the border patrol or US government knowing about it.

After initially being awarded a 15 rating, the distributors chose to make one cut for the UK theatrical release. The sight of a man having his head slammed into a marble wall, as well as the removal of the follow-on shot of his broken and bloodied nose, was edited in order to attain a 12A category. This pre-cut version was released on both the UK DVD and Blu-ray. See more »
Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) have escaped to the Dominican Republic and resume their criminal ways. However when the cops close in on Dom, he decides to leave everything behind including Letty. Later he finds that Letty has been killed while working for drug baron Braga who is using street racers to drive his drugs across the border. Only he doesn't know that Letty was working for Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) as an informant. Now Dom and Brian are both trying to get Braga by infiltrating his group as drivers.
The family is back and the movie is so much the better for it. Director Justin Lin returns after Tokyo Drift. The franchise really missed the presence of Vin Diesel. The only minor disappointment are the car chases. They're good but just not great. They can be better. It's also sad to lose Letty so early on in the movie. It misses her energy.
