They've got the adrenaline rush and the mean machines, but most of all, they've got the extreme need for speed. On the turbo-charged streets of Los Angeles, every night is a championship race. With nitro-boosted fury, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), rules the road turning all his challengers into dust. He and his rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune) are the boldest, the baddest and the best. But now, there's new rage on the road. They know he's tough, they know he's fast, but what they don't know is that he's a speed demon detective (Paul Walker) with enough drive and determination to come out the winner. With intense full-throttle action, awesome high-speed stunts, and full-on pedal to the metal intensity, this fast and furious assault puts you in the driver's seat and dares you to exceed all limits.
There's a refreshing modesty to Rob Cohen's matter-of-fact commentary track, which contains one of the more practical dissections of direction voiced on DVD as it covers a mix of nuts-and-bolts filmmaking and cinematic thrill making. And why not? The Fast and the Furious is a sleek, unapologetic speed-demon buddy film, and the collector's-edition disc gleefully revels in the rush. Skip the "making of" featurette puff piece and cut to the visual-effects montage of the film's opening race: behind-the-scenes footage, raw photography, rough computer effects, and storyboards are intercut with the finished scene to give a whirlwind production overview. Other revealing supplements include an eight-camera multi-angle look at the climactic 360-degree flip stunt and an enlightening five-minute featurette about the film's editors shaving the film down to a PG-13 frame by frame, which says more about the MPAA than any danger this film poses to our unprotected youth. --Sean Axmaker

"The Fast And The Furious" is an amusing movie because the director and cast never pretended to be part of a groundbreaking film, they knew that they were filming a popcorn movie, so they enjoyed the whole process, and the result is evident, "The Fast And The Furious" is an entertaining movie.
Of course, this kind of trick only works once, but Hollywood don't care, the studios love to repeat successful formulas, even if they know they are going to release a bad movie, they do it because they also know that it's going to do well in the box office. So Hollywood made a sequel, "2 Fast 2 Furious", but obviously that movie is just average or below average. This kind of formulas (cars + visual effects + attractive women) only work once.
Anyway, "The Fast And The Furious" it's a very amusing, entertaining film. I would recommend you to rent it first, and if you like it a lot, well, get it. If you don't like it that much, at least you will have a good time for two hours.
1) The cars are really cool!
2) Paul Walker and Van Diesel are hot! and
3) You have to give credit where credit is due, it was a well filmed movie and the camera angles were also very well done, (I work with filming TV and so I see little mistakes in everything, but this one I saw hardly anything. That gives it a thumbs up from me).
I realise some of my stuff is bias but I actually liked the movie. So for what its worth, if you go to your local video store and buy a "previously viewed" version for $15 or less its a good movie.
But please, DO NOT TRY ANY OF THE STUNTS AT HOME! Because if that's your plan than don't bother watching it. Thank you and good night!
So, one day after completely blowing away some idiot in a canary yellow Toyota with bright blue flames on the side and a spoiler I decided to allow him to catch up (that was more of challenge as my car idles at around 20 mph) and asked him what convinced him and the army of others in similar import cars to think he could even come close to beating me. He said he saw it in this movie so on a whim I decided to give it a shot and I found out something very interesting.
This movie is bad; in fact I would gamble to say it's one of the worst things I have ever seen in my life (on par with 'Speed 2'). The acting was sub-par, the stunts were over-blown, the script was absolute nonsense (and no, I for one cannot just over look that as so many claim I should).
You know, I'm 24 and can... kind of... see why some would like this, but I can't disengage my mind long enough.
PS - There is no way that '70 Charger in the flick would have a problem beating any car on the road (import or not), let alone what it was racing.
