|This is a good film for what it is. So what do I mean? This is a film that looks at fast cars, fast women, and an undercover world that thrills everyone involved in it. this is not meant to be a film that demands a rocket scientist to be able to enjoy it, instead just remove yourself from society for a couple of hours and enjoy the ride. Over all this is an awesome film!

|The Fast and the Furious is a film soley about Illegal Street racing.
It contains hundreds of petrol heads and their "women" who compete frequently to show off their machines(tuned cars) in races down long roads in downtown Los Angeles.
Main Character Paul Walker is an undercover cop who makes friends with the other main Character(Vin Diesel) who is the main man behind the hi-jacking of trucks and the stealing of their products and is sent their to try and put a stop to it.
Whilst in the process, he manages to make good friends with Dominic(Vin Diesil) and falls in love with Dom's sister and finds himself working for the organisation.
This film is an action packed, full on, street drag racing film which will have you hanging on the edge of your seat. The small proportion of romance will have you wanting to come back for more!
I saw it twice and im sure once all you out their view this brilliantly set out movie, you will want to watch it again and again. Teriific movie. I give it 10 out of 10.

|A cop goes undercover and races cars.
--alicia, Resident Scholar
|If you like action, car chases, illegal street racing and amazing stunts this is the movie for you. It keeps you on the edge of your seat right the way through and does not disappoint in reference to the tv special effects but what it does lack is an interesting plot; from the time you find out the main character is an undercover cop, you know the rest of the movie. An excellent action movie but don't go expecting a good plot.
--rachel, Resident Scholar
|This film is all about street racers! Paul Walker is a cop who goes undercover to find the team of street racers who keep attacking tracks and stealing the merchandise. What he doesn't expect is to become really good friends with Dominic (Vin Diesil) and fall in love with Dominics sister. The films has a lot of action in it and if you love cars this film is for you because it has races that will blow your mind!This film has love, action,friendship,teamwork,heartache,and so much more! The film is so hard to describe but i can honestly say it is the best film ive ever seen in my life and im sure everyone who has seen it will agree with me! So stop wasting time reading my review and get out there and watch it! Its fantastic!!!! 10 out of 10

|I think this movie was a suspence thriller...you have to admit it kept you on the edge of your seat! The only thing that was lacking was the presence of a suprise ending. I mean from the moemnt the movie started you knew that there was no way the hot main character could die! Actually the flick was awesome for action cravers...but for script enthusiests its all down hill from here. Its a great make
out movie:-)Or so half the audience felt behind me.
--NATALIE-NICOLE, Resident Scholar
|Action vehicle for Vin Diesel about street racing. Walker is in charge of finding out who is responsible for recent truck-jackings of more than $6 million worth of merchandise. High-octane action with some great sound and a grea soundtrack. Buckle up.
