The film that started the franchise, The Fast and The Furious stars Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, a gang leader suspected of a string of multimillion-dollar truck hijackings, and Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner, an undercover cop infiltrating Los Angeles' street racing circuit in hopes of taking down Toretto. However, O’Conner doesn’t count on falling for Toretto’s sexy sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) in this suspenseful, road-ripping ride directed by Rob Cohen (XXX) that features lightening-fast street racing scenes as custom machines careen through Los Angeles at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.
Paul Walker returns in 2 Fast 2 Furious directed by veteran director John Singleton (Four Brothers, Boys in the ‘Hood) in which O’Conner, stripped of his badge, relocates to Miami and takes on the local street racing circuit in an effort to jumpstart his career. Co-starring Tyrese Gibson (Flight of the Phoenix), Eva Mendes (Hitch) and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (Crash), 2 Fast 2 Furious picks up the mayhem with more candy colored muscle cars and even higher speed chases than its predecessor, as O’Conner screeches down Miami streets in pursuit of a money-laundering drug lord. Featuring supercharged cars, jaw-dropping stunts and non-stop chases, 2 Fast 2 Furious combines high-octane action with edge-of-your-seat suspense.
A perfect way to get into the groove for summer’s escapist mode and to enjoy this summer's must-see hit, The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the roar of the engines are beckoning on June 6 with the release of The Fast and the Furious Franchise Collection.
