‘THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS’
Has there ever been a franchise that mutated as often as the “Fast and/or Furious” movies? It must be a shock to a return to the first one — this little ditty from 2001 about two dudes who race cars and occasionally play cops and robbers. Somehow this modest little genre entry birthed the most ludicrous series on the planet, with the last entry boasting them jump-driving between two skyscrapers and The Rock wielding a helicopter gun. Look how much it’s grown!
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker look so young in the first “The Fast and the Furious.”
