Movie 11: Fast & Furious (2009)

The much awaited fourth installment of the dearly loved movie series has finally released. This series of movies came as a complete package and has won the hearts of the audiences' world wide since. Filled with mind numbing customized cars, heart stopping car chase sequences and races, breath taking ladies, foot stomping music, attitude filled first rate  performances by every cast member on screen and most importantly it’s the kick-a$$ attitude of 'The Fast & Furious' which differentiates the franchise from any other.

This movie is an interquel set between the second and the third movie of the series. Audience who liked 'The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)' would be pleased to see Sung Kang on screen with Vin Diesel and would relate to the connection between the two characters which was hinted in movie. Fast & Furious is directed by Justin Lin (of Annapolis, Better Luck Tomorrow and Spotlighting fame). The plot of the movie follows the storyline of the prime characters Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel of The Pacifier, Babylon A.D. and Boiler Room fame), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker of Flags of Our Fathers, Into the Blue and Timeline fame), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez of S.W.A.T., Resident Evil and Lost fame) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster of Annapolis, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and D.E.B.S. fame). The movie starts with a high pressure oil tank heist on the remote deserted freeway. The sequence holds you tight on your seat and gears you up for an exciting trip ahead. The storyline of the movie is quite watertight and disclosing details about the same would be through injustice, however I must mention the races and the chase sequences in this movie are truly spectacular and unlike any other sequence seen before in movies of this franchise or otherwise. As a viewer I would suggest you to brace yourself for a completely new and refreshed top gear experience.

Fast & Furious can be distinguished from other movies with regards to the treatment with which this movie is made. All other movies of this genre generally move on high octane fuel and run on break neck speed from start to the end, but this movie dares to challenge the same and manages to raise the bar. Fast & Furious can be compared to a roller coaster which movies exhilarates you at the start and then suddenly pushes the envelope with a sudden plummet or plunges even further than the last time. That's exactly what happens with this movie. If you think the pace of the movie is slowing down, wait till you get the next high voltage jolt which leaves you spell bounded, and this happens a couple of times with this movie till the time movie finally reaches the destination and hits the brakes (the end). So as I mentioned earlier, brace yourself, secure the seat belts and enjoy the ride.
