The Fast and the Furious

Fast cars. Big muscles. Attractive ladies. What more could you ask for from a film titled “The Fast and the Furious”? Vin Diesel and Paul Walker make this film their own and put themselves on the map while doing so. Even if it is mindless fun, there’s enough heart and introduction to want more and to believe the connections that are being made. Centered around illegal street racing, the film is a first of its kind and ushers in an era of kids liking souped up cars and the down-and-dirty nightlife. With a few twists and enough action to keep one entertained, this first film of the franchise is a benchmark in action films.
