The newest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise came out last week, The Fate of the Furious. It has been getting great reviews and its something I’ll probably go see because I love the movies, but it made me think about the original, The Fast and the Furious.
The original movie with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel opened up in theaters back in 2001, 16 years ago. The first movie had the Supra dragging down the street as Jordana Brewster watched. The original movie was all about the underground world of drag racing and working for a crime family. It’s crazy to look back at the first movie when Honda Civics were being used to rob VCRs out of a truck compared to the insane action scenes we have today. I mean, The Rock is being chased by a nuclear sub in the new movie, yeah, we have come a long way from the first movie.
