This fast-paced, pedal-to-the-metal 2001 car thriller is driven by Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner, a young FBI agent who goes undercover to investigate a series of hijackings. He joins a street gang led by the charismatic Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, who opts for late-night, break-neck car races to solve . . . well, most anything. The young agent falls in love with Toretto's sister Mia, played by Jordana Brewster, while the gang leader also woos a gal from the other side of the tracks. But the more he gets to know the gang and all its players, the more O'Conner believes they aren't responsible for the hijacking hijinks. The movie also features Michelle Rodriguez, Ted Levine, Rick Yune, Matt Schulze, extraordinary special effects and camera work,plus a throbbing soundtrack that keeps beat with this high-energy, high-speed joyride of a film.
