Vin Diesel and Paul Walker reteam with Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster for the ultimate chapter of the franchise built on speed! When fugitive Dominic Toretto (Diesel) returns to Los Angeles to avenge a loved one’s death, it reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Walker). But, as they race through crowded city streets and across international lines, they must test their loyalties by joining together to bring down a shared enemy. From big rig heists to precision tunnel crawls, Fast & Furious takes you back into the high-octane world, which lives for speed, drives for the rush and breaks all the rules!
Fast & Furious is high octane torque-er porn that puts the franchise back on course after drifting in Tokyo. With the original cast once again in the driver's seat, we are good to go with a this-time-it's-personal plot and spectacular race and chase set-pieces that exceed the promise of the stripped-down title, beginning with an awesome highway hijacking of an oil truck led by former street racer Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel, at his glowering and gravel-voiced best). Dom is a fugitive in the Dominican Republic, but after a devastating personal loss, he is driven by revenge to return to Los Angeles to bring down an elusive drug smuggler. He is reunited with Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker), the undercover FBI agent who let him go eight years earlier. Brian, also on the case, must come to terms with Dom and make amends with Dom's sister (Jordana Brewster), whom he betrayed in his original pursuit of Dom. Fast & Furious is just the ticket for putting your mind on cruise control. From a see-what-you've-got racing challenge through the streets of L.A. to the illicit kicks of the street-racing subculture (this is extreme PG-13), there is nothing cheap about these thrills. A record-shattering opening weekend at the box office could mean faster and more furious action to come, but if this is the franchise's last time around the block, it goes out a winner. --Donald Liebenson

To start off we see that Dom and Letty made it to Mexico, only to run from the law again and end up in the Dominigan Republic pulling the same heist except this time it's gasoline, the law is closing in on them again and Letty is murdered by a ruthless drug lord named "Braga".
The little problem I had with some of the plots is what ever happened to Dom's original crew ??? Leon, Vince, and Jesse [which everyone knows that Jesse died in the first film in a drive by shoot out by Dom's rival Johnny Tran.] it was never explained in the film of what became of the other two or why Justin Lin didn't decide to bring back Johnny Strong and Matt Schulze.
Then we see Brian O'Connor [the Buster gearhead undercover cop turned rogue now an FBI agent] on the trail for the same man.
The film get's even more interesting when Dom and Brian cross each others paths once again, but this time the reunion isn't so subtle like in the first film.
Mia is back and the moment she is taken into custody guess who comes to save her ? you guessed it her ex-lover Brian. I could go on and on about the plots and twist but the bottom line is this.., it is great to see the original cast again reprising their rolls all matured and seasoned drivers had Justin Lin bothered to do his homework instead of rushing off to do "Tokyo Drift" with an entirely new cast he probably would've come out as a winner, but all and all
this lastest intallment was not perfect but it was alright in my book that is why I gave it four stars.
Maybe it's some of the absurd notions (a container truck pulling four fully loaded fuel trailers? c'mon...) or the almost stupid spoon feeding (which criminal is the tuner? Let's see, regular car, regular car, regular car, tuned up car with illegal mods, regular car...oh, how about the tuned car?) but something about this movie made me hate it more than the first.
After all, you can't say it's because the actors were different...or the director...or the locale...or the cars...pretty much the same thing going on here. Maybe it's a sign that cookie-cutter movie making isn't entertainment or at least it's not something that'll excite you as much as the racing usually does.
The second movie was ridiculously asinine. The third (Tokyo Drift) was definitely fun though that was largely because the drifting was crazy. But, in the end, the first movie had all sorts of things going for it.
Now, that doesn't mean you won't get something out of this movie. I'm saying you need to decide where your loyalties are. If you loved the first movie more than the last two, then you're safe...buy it and enjoy. If you liked the other two as well, then coming back to this one might not be the homecoming you're expecting. Still, something relatively new and in the F&F universe is better than nothing at all.
being fans of the fast and furious series, this one Fast & Furious (2009) does not detract from the storylines. spoiler alert...rebels rebel, bad guys chase, good rebels win in the end. it fits into the series well. perennial bad guy in everything, john ortiz, adds a little zing to this story. the action does not rest and the chase is just as good as the others, but it may be the best so far. hard to beat the train and car scene, but it is exciting. the characters play well and the action does not stop. you will not be disappointed... yrmv
Fast & Furious literally saved the franchise, turned things around and put things back on track. I felt the character development and story were a lot stronger in this film than other entries in the franchise. Underrated.
If however you love fast cars, improbably crazy stunts, cool locations and testosterone fun then watch this movie. Like I said it's a guilty pleasure and worth the money for the digital rental.
