Alternate Versions

As shown on the DVD, director Rob Cohen and editor Peter Honess had to trim down the scene where Dom character is hijacking the truck towards the end of the film to secure a PG-13 rating. The trims made to avoid an R rating were the shots of Vince's arm being ripped by the wiring on the truck and the agony he expressed. See more »

Insanely Fast
25 June 2001 | by jaded_aeroSee all my reviews

This movie, has by far the best car racing scenes ever filmed, as well as the best cars. They are gorgeous machines, and these guys certainly can drive them. Great story, not just another Gone in Sixty Seconds where all they did was steal cars, there actually weren't very many race scenes as you might expect, but every shot is filled with cars, and lots of them. The acting is great as well, as usual Vin Diesel gives a brilliant performance, as Dominic Toretto. It has already earned a massive following, and when you leave the theaters you will be filed with such a massive adrenaline rush, that you and all your buddies will be left with the feeling that you must go out and race. Everybody I have talked to have said the same thing, it just has this crazy adrenaline rush it gives you. I highly recommend this to all fans of cars, and racing, but it has something for everybody so see it even if you are not a fan of either, bottom line, just see it!!!!!!
