Paul Walker and Vin
Diesel are back in the driver's seat in Fast & Furious,
the latest installment of the popular film franchise that recently
won the top spot at the box office race last weekend with $72.5
million -- the biggest opening so far this year.
Brian O'Connor (Walker) is back on the right side working for
the FBI, but ex-girlfriend Mia (Jordana Brewster) asks him if
he's a good guy pretending a bad guy or a bad guy pretending to
be a good guy; the answer will be revealed at the end. Meanwhile,
her brother, Brian's old friend and racing rival Dominic Toretto
(Diesel) is still the most wanted man on wheels, as he's hiding
out in Mexico. But a death close to home forces him to return
to the States, and his investigation leads him to a drug kingpin:
the same one Brian's tracking. Despite what has happened in the
past, these men have speed to burn when they reluctantly join
forces, as this time, they're on a race for justice.
Fast & Furious marks the first time original stars
Walker, Diesel, Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez all appear. Though
technically this is the fourth sequel, this film is more like
number three (remember The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift?)
yet it is a true follow-up, as it is eight years later following
the 2001 summer blockbuster. Fast & Furious can definitely
get your motor running because it is packed with action and nonstop
car chases. Brewster and Rodriguez serves as the eye candy and
backup drivers of the crew, but it is Walker and Diesel throughout
the film, which renew their status not only as kings of the roads,
but also action heroes.
