The Fast and the Furious (2001) Film Review

There are 8 movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, with two more on the way, and I decided that if Roxanne Gay can love them in all their problematic glory, well, it’s about time I gave it a go.

The film is about Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) an undercover cop who is attempting to get in with a bunch of street racers who they believe are pulling of heists using fast cars.

Look, it’s not got the best dialogue or character development, but I love me a good car chase, and I better get me caught up to see the next in the franchise on the big screen. I wasn’t expecting this to be a great film for female roles and I wasn’t let down on that front (however I’m hoping by number 8 or 9 they may have realised that women can also work as police officers, however I may be dreaming), but it was nice to see a racially diverse film, at least.
