Los Angeles police officer Brian O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies when he becomes enamored with the street racing world he has been sent undercover to destroy.
The Fast and the Furious takes you inside the world of street racing. Dominic Toretto is a gang leader who is accused of hijacking trucks and stealing over a million dollars worth of electronic equipment. The FBI sends LAPD officer Brian O'Conner undercover into Los Angeles' street racing circuit to take down Toretto and his team. As O'Conner becomes part of Toretto's life and gets involved with his sister, Mia, he tries to prove that Toretto is innocent.
Emphasis on the Furious.
My ideal movie will take me to unknown places, ideally through new visual experiences. This film tries twice to do so. On one of these accounts, it fails, but the other really impressed me. And I'm a hard case.
The failure was that the filmmaker thought he discovered a new counterculture worth exploring. As with all such, it is illegal, costly, dangerous, urban and youth-centered. But this is rooted in asian-influenced techno and has an appearance that is unique. The writers (were there any?) weren't good enough to capture any of this beyond showing us the cars. A failure.
The success was in extending the visual grammar. Nothing revolutionary or original here. But the visual effect does push the experience to a new level. I believe it does so by relying on Manga, which is the art of this same counterculture. I'm pretty shocked that no one here has compared the essential style to `Akira.' Positives: Great action. Great dialogue. REAL and complex characters. A few good surprises. Vin Diesel was very believable.
Negatives: The last 30 seconds. Paul Walker was made to be too much of a pretty boy ... not as believable. He wasn't bad, but could have been made to be more down and dirty. If it worked, The Fast and the Furious would put viewers in the same position as the policeman protagonist, attracted to speed but appalled by crime. Instead it sentences you to an hour and a half in a high-decibel limbo. LAPD undercover cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) infiltrates the world of illegal street racing in Los Angeles in order to find evidence connecting gang leader Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Vin Diesel) with hijacking trucks and stealing over six million dollars' worth of merchandise and electronic equipment. His job is complicated when he begins to fall in love with Dom's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster), finds himself questioning Dom's involvement, and begins to suspect a rival group, led by Johnny Tran (Rick Yune). Meanwhile, his superior, Sergeant Tanner (Ted Levine), along with FBI Agent Harry Bilkins (Thom Barry), are worried because truck drivers are beginning to arm themselves, so the FBI is planning to bust Toretto in 36 hours. The Fast and the Furious is loosely based on a May 1998 Vibe magazine article about illegal street racing, "Racer X", by Ken Li. The article was adapted for the movie by American Samoa-born filmmaker Gary Scott Thompson (screen story) and American screenwriters Erik Berguist and David Ayer (screenplay). The movie has since been followed by seven sequels: 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) (2003), The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) (2006), Fast & Furious (2009) (2009), Fast Five (2011) (2011), Furious 6 (2013) (2013), Furious Seven (2015) (2015), and The Fate of the Furious (2017) (2017). After aborting the heist, Brian calls for a life flight for Vince (Matt Schulze), surprising Dom when he identifies himself as an LAPD officer. After the helicopter has taken Vince to the hospital, Dom, Mia, Leon (Johnny Strong), and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) drive off together, leaving Brian on his own. Brian drives his Supra back to Dom's house to find Dom standing in the driveway with a shotgun, intending to go look for Jesse before Tran finds him, but Jesse drives up in his father's Jetta while Dom is still ordering Brian to move his car. Suddenly, Tran and Lance (Reggie Lee) drive by on their motorcycles and begin shooting. They miss Brian, Dom, and Mia but kill Jesse. Brian jumps in the Supra and goes after them, followed by Dom in his Charger. In the chase that follows, Dom forces Lance off the road, and Brian shoots Tran. Dom begins to flee, but Brian pursues. They race each other for the railroad tracks, narrowly escaping a passing train, but Dom barrels into a truck, rolling the Charger and injuring himself. As police sirens draw closer, Brian hands the keys of his Supra to Dom and says, "I owe you a 10-second car." Dom nods and drives away. A 10-second car is one that can run one quarter mile in 10.999 seconds or less from a standing start. To do that, it would need to be travelling at about 135 miles per hour (MPH) at the first quarter-mile mark. Acceleration is not constant. Coming off the line, it should reach 70 MPH in 3 seconds covering about 60 yards in the process. The teaser trailer, featured on the DVD release of the movie, features the song "9 Teen 90 Nine" by Limp Bizkit. The second theatrical trailer features the song "My Way", also performed by Limp Bizkit. Some alternate cuts of the trailer also feature the song "Rollin'" by Limp Bizkit and it is also featured in the film. a5c7b9f00b
