Our Score
Delivering exactly what its title promises, this pedal-to-the-metal thriller from director Rob Cohen has fabulous customised cars, scantily clad babes, moody hunks, bare-knuckle brawls and a boot full of turbo-charged stunts to spare. All this and Pitch Black's Vin Diesel, the baddest, meanest and coolest action man to emerge from the American B-movie in years. He's the champion of LA's illegal street racing subculture, where gangs organise cash-prize races between souped-up cars. But are his crew of tuned-up misfits, including girlfriend Michelle Rodriguez, behind a spate of recent truck hijackings? That's what cop Paul Walker goes under cover to find out, falling in love with Diesel's sister Jordana Brewster in the process. Cohen's fast-paced, stylish direction pushes the hot and heavy excitement to the maximum, making the breakneck auto races, high-octane hijacks and crash-bang cop chases absolutely electrifying to watch.

Summary

In a move to identify suspected hijackers, an undercover police officer infiltrates the high-octane world of illegal late-night street racing by rival gangs. He is befriended by a champion driver, but when he also forms a bond with the racer's sister, he is pitched into a conflict of loyalties. Thriller, starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster.
