PG-13 | | Action, Crime, Thriller
Los Angeles police officer Brian O'Connor must decide where his loyalty really lies when he becomes enamored with the street racing world he has been sent undercover to destroy.
The green 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T that Paul Walker is driving at the start, is the same one used in the movie Sex Drive. There were a few differences made to it, such as the roof scoop.
Oh shit! We got cops, cops, cops, cops!
When Brian and Dom are forced into parking lot by Tran and the other bikers, the car is facing into to the lot, yet when the bikers return to shoot the car, it has suddenly turned around.
On some prints, after the credits, there is a brief epilogue showing Dominic's fate. He is shown, driving alone in a red Chevelle with black racing stripes, on a desolate road by the coast in Baja, Mexico. He narrates about his life 'I live my life quarter a mile at a time ...'.
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.
