There was a change in the film industry following the premiere of the first movie in the Fast & Furious franchise in the autumn of 2001. Those who thought that it was another story about street racing could never have imagined that it would become one of the biggest blockbusters of all time. It has become a true phenomenon, attracting a growing number of fans from around the world as new titles – eight, for the time being – were steadily added to the series.
And no wonder: few action films have been able to deal as successfully with such important issues as friendship and family ties. When you add this to a cast of characters who immediately won the hearts of the public and, above all, cars that shoot across the screen at lightning speed, success is guaranteed. The fascination of these electrifying races at breakneck speed is irresistible; they are some of the most thrilling sequences that have ever been witnessed on the big screen. In each movie, Dominic and his crew surprise us with endless acrobatics on wheels, always determined to remain united at all costs. After all, who could stand up to a group of heroes prepared to defend their values, their integrity and their freedom in an exotic setting and with a fabulous soundtrack?
