Original, creative, and very watchable thanks to a commanding performance by Vin Diesel. Its flashy entertainment and sometimes a bit TOO flashy, but never uninteresting.

I would prefer plugging this high speed action film to those interested in cars, but due to the recent loss of my friend Paul Walker, it has become quite sad to me. His role in this series of films(Brian O'Connor) is what he's known most for, but I do wish he had landed the role ...

One of the most overrated ridiculous franchises ever? well you get what you pay for right, you see the trailer, you see fast cars and slutty girls, you know what you're gonna get. Apart from the visuals, you see who directs this and you know not to expect a great deal, Rob Cohen....

It has it's moments of genuine thrills but it strongly relies on it's flashy vehicles and has a heavily uninspired, flimsy plot with very few action sequences that ultimately lets it break down. It's absolutely harmless fluff that's nothing memorable but will surely entertain tho...

I wouldn't say the car racing was awesome because it wasn't that amazing to me. Yes it's entertaining but it also lacked something. Good movie for people who loves car.

The Fast and the Furious is a mildly entertaining decent action film about car racing. The film definitely lacks anything good, so if you watch this, don't expect anything good, intelligent, and thoughtful. I felt that that The Fast and the Furious followed the same trend as Poin...
