From Everybody:

Excellent balance of drama and high octane action.

Fast & Furious won’t win any awards for the construction of its dialogue or plot, yet the film is an excellent balance of grounded drama and high octane action scenes. Watching cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) reunite with criminal frenemy Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) is very entertaining, especially after the two realize they must team up to avenge their fallen comrade Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Their trust building process is slow, although once they establish a bond, they become a formidable force to challenge their mutual foe: the drug kingpin Braga.

As the fourth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, this movie is the perfect bridge between the serious melodrama of the first three pictures and the increasingly ridiculous action-packed sequels that follow it. Additionally, it lays the believable groundwork for O’Conner to leave his life as a cop behind and join Toretto’s band of automobile outlaws. O’Conner doesn’t just become a business partner for Tor...(more)

Additionally, it lays the believable groundwork for O’Conner to leave his life as a cop behind and join Toretto’s band of automobile outlaws. O’Conner doesn’t just become a business partner for Toretto, he joins the family after rekindling his romance with Toretto’s sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Their coupling provides a proper set up for the fifth Fast & Furious film: Toretto is carted off to prison, which allows her and O’Conner to swoop in and bust him out. (less)

"New Model. Original Parts."

Plot:

Five years after the events of The Fast and the Furious, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his new crew, Leticia "Letty" Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Tego "Teddy" (Tego Calderón), Omar Santos (Don Omar), Cara Mirtha (Mirtha Michelle) and Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang), are hijacking fuel tankers in the Dominican Republic. Dominic begins to suspect the trail is too hot and leaves Leticia behind in order to protect her from harm. Several weeks later, in Panama City, Dominic gets a call from his sister, Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), who tells him that Leticia has been murdered by Fenix Calderon (Laz Alonzo), after getting into a near fatal car accident. Dominic heads back to Los Angeles to examine Leticia's crash and finds traces of nitromethane. He then goes to the only car mechanic that uses nitromethane and coerces him into giving him the name David Park (Ron Yuan), the man who ordered the fuel.

Meanwhile, U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) is trying to track down a drug dealer named Arturo Braga (John Ortiz). His search leads him to David Park. Dominic arrives at Park's apartment first and hangs him out of the window by his ankles before letting go. Brian, who was also on his way to Park's place, saves Park and Park becomes the F.B.I.'s new informant. Park gets Brian into a street race through Los Angeles. Brian selects a modified Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 from the Impound Lot. Dominic also shows up to race in his modified 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. Gisele Yashar (Gal Gadot), the liaison for Braga, reveals that the winner will become the last driver on a team that traffics heroin between the Mexico–United States border. Dominic wins by bumping Brian's car, making him lose control. Brian uses his power as an F.B.I. agent to arrest another driver, Dwight Mueller (Greg Cipes), and takes his place on the team.

The following day, the team meets one of Braga's men. They drive across the border using underground tunnels to avoid detection. Brian had prior knowledge that, after the heroin was delivered, Braga ordered the drivers to be killed. However it was revealed to Dominic from Fenix that he killed Leticia and after a tense stand-off, Dominic detonates his car with nitrous to distract Braga's men and Brian hijacks a Hummer with $60 million worth of heroin. Both Dominic and Brian drive back to Los Angeles and hide the heroin in a police impound lot where Brian picks up a modified Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Later on, Dominic finds out Brian was the last person to contact Leticia, which results in him being attacked by Dominic before he could explain to him until he learns Leticia was working undercover for Brian, tracking down Braga in exchange for clearing Dominic's name. Brian tells his superiors that in exchange for Dominic's pardon, he will lure Braga into a trap, forcing him to personally show up to exchange money for the heroin. At the drop site, however, Ramon Campos (Robert Miano), the man who claims to be "Braga", is revealed as a decoy, and "Campos", the real Braga, escapes and flees to Mexico.

Brian and Dominic travel to Mexico on their own to catch Braga. They find him at a church and apprehend him. As Braga's henchmen try to rescue Braga, Brian and Dominic drive through the underground tunnels back to the United States. Brian crashes his car after taking fire from Braga's men. He is then injured after being T-boned by Fenix at the end of the tunnel. Before Fenix can kill Brian, Dominic drives into and kills Fenix. As police and helicopters start approaching the crash site on the American side of the border, Brian tells Dominic to leave, but Dominic refuses saying that he is tired of running. Despite Brian's request for clemency, the judge sentences Dominic to 25 years to life while Brian resigns from the F.B.I. Dominic boards a prison bus that will transport him to Lompoc penitentiary. As the bus drives down the road, Brian, Mia, Leo, and Santos arrive in their cars to intercept it, leading to the events of Fast Five.
