Synopsis Fast & Furios
From illegal underground street racing in Los Angeles and money laundering in Miami to drifts on customized rides across perilous Tokyo courses, one series built on speed has become a global sensation since its origins more than nine years ago. Now, in the next chapter, the four original characters reunite for the first time and come home to where it all began.
VIN DIESEL (The Pacifier, xXx) and PAUL WALKER (Flags of Our Fathers, Eight Below) reteam for the ultimate chapter of the adrenaline-fueled franchise—Fast & Furious. Heading back to the streets of L.A., they rejoin MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ (Lost, Resident Evil) and JORDANA BREWSTER (Chuck, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars along the crowded streets of the city and across international lines in a high-octane action-thriller from director JUSTIN LIN (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Better Luck Tomorrow).
It’s been eight years since ex-con Dominic Toretto (Diesel) drove across the Mexican border, committing himself to a fugitive existence. Now, holed up in a beach shack in the Dominican Republic, and living on the run with the sole remnant of his past, Letty (Rodriguez), he tries to piece together a new life. But he knows the authorities are always just steps behind him.
When a tragic death of someone he loves brings him back to L.A., Dom reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Walker). As they are forced to confront a shared enemy, a sociopathic drug kingpin who is flooding the U.S. with lethal product, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him and avenge the tragedy that he caused their small de facto family to endure.
Infiltrating the underground network means earning a spot on a heist squad that moves high-grade heroin across the border from Mexico through almost unnavigable tunnels carved into the caves. Two lieutenants in the cartel, Campos (JOHN ORTIZ, American Gangster, Miami Vice) and Fenix (LAZ ALONSO, Jarhead, Stomp the Yard), are the only ones who can provide the access Dom and Brian need and the answers they’re after.
As Dom, his sister Mia (Brewster) and Brian rediscover the family bond that was torn apart so long ago, the unlikely allies again find themselves pitted against one another in a race that takes them to the brink. Now, from convoy heists on the mountainous countryside of the Dominican Republic to precision tunnel crawls across the floor of the Mexican desert, two men will find the best way to get revenge: Push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.
