From Amazon.co.uk

A guilty pleasure with excess horsepower, The Fast and the Furious efficiently combines time-honored male fantasies (hot cars, hot women, hot action) into a vacuous plot of crystalline purity. It's trash, but it's fun trash, in which a hotshot Los Angeles cop named Brian (Paul Walker) infiltrates a gang of street racers suspected of fencing stolen goods from hijacked trucks. The gang leader is Dom (Vin Diesel), ex-con and reigning king of the street racers, who lives for those 10 seconds of freedom when his high-performance "rice rocket" (a highly modified Asian import) hurtles toward another quarter-mile victory. Racing is street theater for a lawless youth subculture, and Dom is a star behind the wheel--charismatic, dangerous, and protective toward his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster), who's attracted to Brian as the newest member of Dom's car-crazy team.

Director Rob Cohen treats this like Roman tragedy for MTV junkies, pushing every scene to adrenaline-pumping extremes; when his camera isn't caressing a spectrum of nitrous oxide-enhanced dream machines, it's ogling countless slim 'n' sexy race babes. The undercover-cop scenario cheaply borrows the split-loyalty theme perfected in Donnie Brasco; a rival Asian gang adds mystery and menace; and digital trickery is cleverly employed to explore the fuel-injected innards of the day-glo racecars. It's about as substantial as a perfume ad, but just as alluring, and for heavy-metal maniacs of any age, Diesel's superblown '69 Charger proves that Detroit muscle never goes out of style. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars The film that spawned a shed-load of games 20 Sep 2005
By G. Lewis VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is one of those films that gets panned by the critics but draw me to watch them over and over. Some find it a bit shallow and very "Hollywood". If however you are into the cruising/modifying/street racing scene you will love this.
The basic premise is this:
A few articulated lorries carrying high-value goods have been knocked off by the same gang, driving black honda civic's with green neon lights underneath. The FBI suspect that the culprits are involved in the street-racing scene and have a name in mind.
Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) is chosen to become a street racer and mingle with Dominic Torreto's (Vin Diesel) gang to find out who is behind the hijackings.
Brian begins to discover the true depth and integrity to Dominic's gang, leaving him to question who's side he should be on.
OK, its no Thespian play, the script won't win any awards, but that really isn't the point. Its a banquet of big stunts, petrol and testosterone. Plenty of fast cars and fast driving. One of my favourites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Car racing at it's best. 10 Feb 2006
By Blue hunter VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a good film that has spawned many others like it that arn't as good.This is the original and best.
The acting is good for alot of new actors and actresses and it has a good storyline,but the stars of the show are the cars.Brilliant racing scenes and the camera work is fantastic with a few new special camera views thrown in.
All-in-all it's a good film that has a story to it as well as fast cars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin 25 July 2003
Format:DVD
Testerone-fuelled fun, The Fast and The Furious shares a lot with it's early 90's predecessor - dumb cop drawn into a sexy world of crime and adrenaline, mysterious, charismatic leader taking said cop under his wing, decoy criminal (rival surfers in Break, Rick Yune's remarkably named Johnny Tran (Chan apparently being far too stereotypical a name) in Furious) - the list goes on. But don't let it be said that this is a complaint.
As a testerone-fuelled thrill stacked with amusing dumb one-liners, Point Break was a high point in the genre, as is The Fast and The Furious. The action sequences break new ground in the depiction of speed on film, Cohen's camera crash zooming and flash cutting so fast that the he literally creates a blur. As such, the action set-pieces are undoubtably the high point, stacked with everything the red-blooded Millenium man could want - fast cars, faster girls, and men we envy for being so damn cool it hurts (mainly for the fact that they're surrounded by the first two). Hell, its even got a cameo for pint-sized rapper Ja Rule.
It does fall a little in the acting stakes - but no-one was really expecting Oscar-calibre work here. Walker is amiable enough as Keanu 2000, and Brewster puts her dusky charms to good use in what is pretty much a nothing role. Mention should be given to the impossibly square-jawed Rick Yune as Tran, who comes close to being noticeable on screen against Diesel, but in the end is overmatched. Undoubtedly the star of the film, (in fact, it comes close to stalling whenever he's not on screen) Diesel is a hulking presence, full of greasepaint cool and barely restrained violence.
Either way, The Fast and The Furious remains one of the best car films around, absolutely certain to make you race the next man fool enough to pull level with you at the traffic lights. One for the lads and a Friday night, and none the worse for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin 9 Mar 2002
Format:DVD
Seeing the trailer of this movie, or simply looking at the front cover, most will automatically "judge the book by it's cover" and assume this movie is about cars, stunts, and lots of good looking people listening to songs by Limp Bizkit. They would be right. Attention: If you have no interest in cars, no interest in stunts over storyline & no interest in the youth culture of today, THIS FILM IS NOT FOR YOU.
I was one of the people who did judge it as just what it is, and I've never been particularly interested in cars or street racing, but I decided to give it a shot. I have to say I was blown away by this film. The main thing I noticed is that from the very start of the film, where the world known Universal music & logo plays but then runs straight into the intro music (I forget who the band is), the film keeps a fast pace, and does not stop without extremely good reason (a few times in the film to set a love scene between two of the characters for example). It is also obvious that music is essential throughout the film to keep up the atmosphere & pace. Indeed everything about the film really is fast & furious. The storyline isn't a groundbreaker, it sets the scene of an undercover cop (Brian Spilner/Paul Walker) attempting to find out who has been hijacking transport lorries. He begins to get a feel for the like of street racing, and makes some new friends, whom he suspects are behind the hijackings. The other main character (Domonic Toretto/Vin Diesel) begins to take him under his wing & has no idea that he is an undercover cop. To make things more interesting, Brian also forms a relationship with Domonic's sister. What I've just given away wasn't spoiling the plot, there is more to come, but there wasn't much plot to spoil in the first place.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a great start to the Fast and the Furious series. It is electric, dramatic and full of thrills. The characters are interesting with various depths to them and I love watching the relationships form between the characters.
