Fast & Furious

ACTION; 1hr 47min

STARRING: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez

Muscles car: Rodriguez and Diesel

Dominic Toretto (Diesel, glum and glummer) may have been a fugitive for eight years with his she-cat girl Letty (Rodriguez, sultry and sultrier) but he hasn’t lost any of his mental and physical muscle. Back in LA at last with a big score to settle, Dom soon butts heads with ex-amigo FBI agent Brian O’Conner (Walker, grim and grimmer). The two have had their diffs and tiffs in the past — not to mention that Dom’s sister Mia (Brewster, mopey and mopier) was once Brian’s ladylove. But they shelve them now to join forces in catching a big-time heroin dealer. Wouldn’t anyone?


Their risk-all undercover assignment takes the duo and their badass cars into the Mexican desert where some show-offy driving occurs in a tight maze of tunnels. Fast and furious? You bet your sweet bippy! Virtually everybody in this fourth instalment of the vroom-vroom franchise from director Justin Lin (who also took charge of number three) is cheesed off about something. Between the sourpuss baddies and the all-business FBI guys, F&F takes itself very seriously — especially when the he-men take the wheel.
