The original cast form 2001's The Fast and the Furious is back and although they're obviously older, they have not slowed down a bit.

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is now a fugitive hiding out with girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) is still chasing down bad guys as a cop.

Also, pretty Jordana Brewster returns as Mis, Dom's sister and Brian's ex-girlfriend.

After a super opening with Dom, Letty and a few friends trying to hijack a moving gasoline tanker truck on a dangerously winding, steep road, the plot has them going after a drug lord by becoming his drivers.

Fast & Furious doesn't pretend to be anything more than what its title promises. If you're looking for shiny, fast nitrous-injected cars, macho drivers, scantily-clad women who hang around and plenty of chases, crashes and tough talk, this one's for you.
