The Fast and the Furious

Set in the gritty world of illegal street car racing, we follow our hero, a clean-cut cop who infiltrates his way into the inner circle of a road racing kingpin. The cops suspect that he may be the mastermind behind a series of high-speed truck hijackings. However, once on the ''inside'', the cop begins to have doubts, caused by his growing admiration of his suspect, as well as his feelings towards his sister. Expect lots of attitude, outrageous car action and a pounding soundtrack.

Harsatinderpal Singh (37): I think it is very close to reality.

Riaan Grobbelaar (28): This is one of those movies that any action junky will love, it doesn't have a Oscar winning script, it doesn't have the world's best actors in either, but it has some of the best car chases, addrenalin inducing action scenes and beautifull cars you will only see in movies. If you like mindless action and don't have a need for boring hours of speeches from the characters then watch this. Having Vin Diesel in it is not a bad thing either.

Marina Vorster (26): Dit was baie goed gewees, veral die laaste jaag toneel waar hulle verby die trein jaag. Sal dit weer gaan kyk.

Yolande Kruger (31): Ek was mal daaroor. Baie aksie en goeie storie. Ek het baie lank laas 'n fliek so baie geniet. Ek gaan dit weer kyk!!!!

Abishekar Bisseru (18): This movie is an excellent representation of what happens in real life, I am a drag racer and to see these beautiful cars in the movie it is like pure heaven and the way they are driven is even better. The control is awesome and I think it is a must for the car fanatics!!

Lizeth Rautenbach (17): Many STUNNING cars were shown and good ation was given... a good plot, with the theme of friendship supported well throughout. The need for power and speed was well portrayed. Thank goodness not too much romance was involved!

Colleen Swart (40): Fast moving & tense. Fantastic action. Loved it!

Riaan Fouché (28): This movie's intended audience is in the 12-16 age boy range. Unfortunately the misuse of God's Name results in an age restriction of 16 -- missing the point and very unacceptable! A lot of car action, but what we are used to from the movies of these days. Not recommended.

James LaPlante (19): Fast and Furious is a great movie and really shows the whole ''street racing'' genre. A big two thumbs up. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
