The Fast And The Furious is a real spectacle movie and a must for fans of fast cars. The story is nice but certainly not grandiose. The thunderous action, however, more than makes up for this. To be honest, I’m not a car fan, but I do enjoy this franchise.
When I was young, I did have an interest in tuning my car. I was a twelve-year-old kid who thought I was going to tune my car at my age. However, I quickly lost interest in cars after that. That was mainly because of the Need For Speed Underground games, and along with that, you got the Fast and The Furious movies that were really about street racing back then. Now the franchise has taken a different twist route, and they have become entertaining action movies.
The first film was heavily focused on street racing. It’s insane how illegal stuff can be appealing to an audience. It’s always cool to do some stuff you’re not allowed to do. However, I do not recommend street raceS as it’s very dangerous and lives are more important than racing. Now, that doesn’t take away the fact that you enjoy tuned cars.
Brian, an undercover cop
The story revolves around Brian, who is an undercover cop in the street world. He finds his way to become a friend of Toretto, someone who’s on the watchlist of the police. However, all isn’t what it seems. They all have some great human connections together, and every friend’s life is precious. Even Brian doubts himself as he’s actually working against them when he can see that they’re good people.
The Fast and The Furious is not perfect. It lacks plot and dialogue, and even some of the acting is weak, but what it does breathe is testosterone. It pumps your blood, raises your adrenaline, overwhelms you with fast cars, sexy women, and the one unchanging thing that I think it has going for it … Vin Diesel.
Vin Diesel plays Dominic Toretto, a massive, bald mechanic who owns a garage but also holds street races to make some extra money. Brian, who has infiltrated his street gang, finds out who is stealing trucks and all their merchandise. There are about four rival street gangs in L.A. and one of them is doing this. He has to find out which one. Of course, he gets tempted along the way, but that’s not what we really care about. All we want to see is a lot of racing, a few crashes, and some fights.
The Fast and the Furious is a movie that will keep you entertained, with fun action, sexy cars and women, and some fun characters. However, don’t expect this movie to engage your brain or any Fast and Furious movie for that matter.
