The Fast and The Furious is the movie that started it all.
Love it or hate it, for better or for worse, this often cheesy b-movie helped shape a new generation of petrolheads. Director Rob Cohen got the idea for the movie after reading a magazine article about "Racer X", the growing real-life import tuner and street racing scene in upper Manhattan. Released in 2001, it had a razor-thin plot, clunky dialogue, acting that was often barely there, and stunts that were sometimes plain dumb. But the result was a weirdly satisfying combination of ridiculousness and authenticity that, above all felt intense. Like Point Break but with cars instead of surfboards.
How could a movie with such evident flaws be such a success with car people? Because it delivered on its main promise: mindless action and lots of fast cars being raced 'a quarter-mile at a time' for 'pink slips'. Because it created its own audience, supported by the fast-expanding tuner and street racer community. It even helped shape the development of the aftermarket industry. With each new instalment, the Fast Saga becomes more bombastic and ridiculous. But it's a movie franchise whose success joins the ranks of behemoths like The Avengers, Star Wars and James Bond. Its multi-billion total box office exceeds the GDP of several small nations. Many critics have even come to admire it to a certain degree for the sheer magnitude of its success and longevity. Not bad for a movie that had no plans for a sequel.
The designs were inspired by our favourite cars of the Fast Saga: Dom's Charger and Brian's "10-second" Supra, silver R34 Skyline and lime Evo VII.
