Product Description

Undercover cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) finds himself in the Los Angeles illegal street racing scene, searching for the criminals behind a string of hijackings. Prime suspect is Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), whose passion for Japanese fast cars is only matched by his enthusiasm for stealing hi-tech equipment. But as Brian gets closer he falls for Toretto's beautiful sister and that's when the trouble starts...

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
I really loved Point Break back in 1991 and seeing it again was a real treat. The close-knit group of friends executing dangerous robberies while spending their free time engaged in a dangerous hobby, is still as exciting today as it was back then. Add the romance between an undercover cop and a girl linked to the gang and you have a great summer blockbuster.

But wait...it's not Point Break I dropped into the blu-ray play. It's The Fast and the Furious!!!

I never saw TFatF back in 2001. If I'm honest I didn't really like the sound of it and neither of the stars were enough to get me to watch it. However, I was able to pick up the complete blu-ray set at a bargain price; so I thought I'd give it a go....see start of my review.

To be fair, this film isn't an exactly replica (or ripoff) of Point Break - but it's not far off. The main difference is neither Vin Diesel or Paul Walker are as fun to watch or charismatic as Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves.
But, I really enjoyed The Fast and the Furious. It was a brainless, exciting, visually stunning popcorn movie. A real summer blockbuster. I'm looking forward to watching the sequels; but also praying they don't rehash the same story another four times.

Having never seen a DVD of the film I can't say if this BD is an improvement...what I can say is that I thought the picture and sound were excellent. There is also a lot of extras.

Definitely worth a watch if you like action films.

Format: Blu-ray
For some reason I've dodged this film since it came out. I'm not sure why but I thought it was going to be awful. I thought it looked cheesy and cheap and (to use an equally cheap car pun) wouldn't be up my street.

But I was wrong. Having just sat through this Bluray I'm starting to regret the times I immediately turned over when it's been on TV, because it was actually quite a fun and novel twist on a tried and tested theme - the undercover cop.

Fast cars, great stunts, turn on, tune in, drop out - as I expected, that's all this film is about. What I didn't expect was the fact that I'd enjoy it do much, as I'm not a petrol head at all.

The cars are vulgar, boy-racer imports and I found it hysterical seeing all 3 and a half foot of Ja Rule trying to drive struggling to peer over the dash (it's worth seeing for that comedy moment alone) and any film with Japanese biker gangs in it, is going to be good.

By now I'm sure everyone knows about this film, so I won't bore you and just give you the facts about the Bluray. The picture quality was excellent and the perfect format to see the shiny chrome engines and brash, colourful cars in all their glory.

The disk was jam-packed with extras too and didn't feel like a straight reproduction of the DVD disc (although it might have been as I don't own that) because there were documentaries on it with info about the fourth Fast & the Furious film in them.

I was going to give this film 4 stars but sitting here writing this, I've changed my mind. This film, just like the criminal crew it depicts, does a job and it does a job well, so for that reason I'm going to give it 5 stars.

I think it's immensely enjoyable to watch if you're in the right mood and puts the peddle to the metal when it comes to action, stunts, nonsense, chicks, bro-mances, car chases and all that other good stuff that makes a great beer and pizza movie.
