DVD REVIEW: Fast and Furious


Vin Diesel and Paul Walker re-team for the ultimate chapter of the franchise built on speed--Fast & Furious. Heading back to the streets where it all began, they rejoin Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert in the new high-octane action-thriller.

When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) re-ignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Walker). But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to out-manoeuvre him. From convoy heists to precision tunnel crawls across international lines, two men will find the best way to get revenge: push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.


Continuing the success of the original film as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker reunite to bring justice alongside vengeance in this high octane continuum of the Fast and Furious franchise. Whilst the plot is fairly flimsy, the film moves along at its fast pace and utilises the typical sort of tricks to get guys to watch it, in short, muscle cars with women in skimpy outfits. Its simplistic, it’s got a descent cast and above all it’s fairly easy watching. However personally I think the original is still the best.
