After fleeing from the police in US, Dom(Vin Diesel) lives in the Dominican Republic with his girlfriend, Letty(Michelle Rodriguez). Here, he is engaged in robbing merchandise which are shipped by road. When Dom realizes that search for him by the authorities is yielding results, he leaves his girlfriend and his gang.
Now, he lives in Panama City. One day, he gets a call from his sister, Mia(Jordana Brewster). He is informed of Letty’s death. Letty died is in a car crash. Dom travels back to LA and watches the funeral service from a distance. He gets suspicious about Letty’s death. Subsequently, Dom examines the crash site and finds out the accident was an homicide. He also gets a clue about the murderer. While following this lead, he ends up at the apartment of David Park.
Meanwhile, Dom’s friend and Mia’s ex-boyfriend, FBI agent Brian O’Conner(Paul Walker) is hunting a notorious drug dealer named Braga. His search leads him to David Park too. When he arrives at David Park’s apartment, Dom is already there. Even though Brian tries to arrest him, Dom escapes.
The information from David Park leads Dom and Brian to Campos(John Ortiz). Campos scouts for race car drivers to smuggles heroin across US-Mexico border for Braga. By getting into Campos’s gang, Dom can find Letty’s killer while Brian can find Braga. But Campos requires only one race car driver. All his other positions are already taken.
Now, Brian and Dom has to outrace one another to come closer to their goal. How they become friend again and also how they exact vengeance forms the rest of the story.
Justin Lin has ably directed this movie giving a fresh lease of life to the franchise. He brings in the original cast back. The action scenes are watchable.
The whole movie rides on Vin Diesel’s charm and one-liners.
Leave your brains behind and ride along with spectacular action scenes combined with bad acting and cheesy one-liners.
