MATT’S MOVIES: “Fast & Furious” Is Both Fast & Furious

Everybody knows that the “Fast And Furious” franchise has been the main car movie since it came on the scene in 2001.

After the original was released, law enforcement agencies all over the country, maybe even the world, took notice of the illegal activity that was taking place in almost every metropolis.

Eight years later, the films are still going strong with the release of the next installment: Fast & Furious.”

Bringing the original cast back together was a nice touch. The way Justin Lin, director of Tokyo Drift and Fast And Furious described it was “with this film, I wanted to bring back the roots of the films, but also incorporate more muscle cars, as well as keeping true to the imports.”

If you watch the film, you can definitely see what he meant with the return of Vin Diesel’s iconic 1970 Dodge Charger and a 1972 Ford Torino.

The plot picks up as a prequel to “Tokyo Drift” and follows Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) as they infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel. In my mind, you can try as much as you want, but you can never do better than the original…but this film comes very close.

Fast & Furious is rated PG-13 and is still playing in area theaters.

Here are some Fast & Furious video clips chock full of fast cars, hunks, babes and explosions to whet your appetite:

  1. Illegal operations always take place in big metropolises)))) and it is the duty of agencies to take good notice of them. as for the attempt to bring back the roots and staring the old cast it is a good idea though as a rule the first film is always the best)))
