Rookie L.A. cop Brian (Walker) goes undercover to infiltrate a street gang that adapts sports cars for illicit street racing and other, even less legal, uses. But first he has to earn the respect and trust of their leader, Dominic (Diesel), and the love of Dom's sister Mia (Brewster). Dominic is the head of a tight-knit "family" of quirky thieves hopped up on car exhaust and adrenaline, very much in the B-movie tradition of "Gone in 60 Seconds" (the original), "Eat My Dust," and "Grand Theft Auto." And hey, let's face it, kids. That's all this is, a summer B-movie where reality, plot, and dialogue have no place. Diesel does impress (again) in the patriarch-philosopher-thief role.

This movie takes you inside the world of street racing. Dominic Toretto is a gang leader who is accused of hijacking trucks and stealing over a million dollars worth of electronic equipment. The FBI sends LAPD officer Brian O'Conner undercover into Los Angeles' street racing circuit to take down Toretto and his team. Brian loses the race agaisnt Dominic and two other racers. His car goes to Dom but gets in his good graces by saving him from arrest in a high-speed escape, after the police are called in to arrest the street racers. As O'Conner becomes part of Toretto's life and gets involved with his sister, Mia, he tries to prove that Toretto is innocent. Dominic gets in a car accident and Brian phones in for a life flight helicopter, revealing to Toretto his serial number and that he is a cop. Vince is taken to a hospital, and Toretto and Mia drive off angrily. At the end of the movie, Brian and Dom see the cops coming after another wreck, and Brian gives Dom the keys so he doesn't get arrested.
