You don’t got friends, you got family in this first instalment of the NOS-fuelled franchise, The Fast and the Furious.

The late Paul Walker stars as Brian, a former street racer forced to go undercover in the high-stakes world of Los Angeles drag racing where he gets pulled into the orbit of the charismatic Toretto family, led by Dominic (Vin Diesel).

With a supporting cast that includes Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Rick Yune, Ja Rule and Ted Levine, return to the beginning with the franchise that proved diversity could work on a billion-dollar scale and reshaped the Hollywood blockbuster forever.
