Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
Heading back to the streets where it all began, two men rejoin two women to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars across Los Angeles and floor through the Mexican desert. When a crime brings them back to L.A., fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto reignites his feud with agent Brian O'Connor. 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 outmaneuver him. And 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. Written by
Toretto is seen installing a carb "hat", centrifugal supercharger on his '70 SS Chevelle during the preparation montage. See more »
Fast & Furious takes place 5 years after The Fast and the Furious. Assuming the first took place in the same time period it was made (2001), then this installment would take place circa 2006. Brian driving a 2009 Subaru STI is therefore impossible. See more »

Contrary to conventional wisdom, many sequels are superior to their originals (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and WRATH OF KHAN come immediately to mind). However, I cannot recall when the FOURTH film in a franchise was superior to all the others, including the original. However, what else can one say about a movie that: o covers its production costs in its first WEEK o has action sequences rivaling anything in the BORNE, BOND, STAR WARS
or INDIANA JONES franchises o Reunites its original cast and improves upon their relationships
FAST & FURIOUS does all this. Plus it has has fast cars, hot women, great music, outstanding photography, Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez. It even moves better than AVATAR. WOW!
I give FAST & FURIOUS an 8
