Today’s podcast is a review of 'The Fast and the Furious' the 2001 action film about illegal street racing starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster. With the ninth installment of this series steering its way into theaters soon, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark original. That's right, it's Dom, Letty, Brian, Mia, Vince, and the villainous Johnny Tran and his gang. And Ja Rule, too.
The three of us jumped right in the driver's seat discussing the cast and themes in the movie, obvious comparisons to 1991's 'Point Break', the stunts and set pieces, and how 'Fast 1' birthed what has become a billion dollar franchise. Later, we switch gears and ask the big question: HOW MANY MORE OF THESE CAN THEY MAKE?
All right, all right, pump your brakes ... we're just kidding. Thanks for listening.
