Inspired by street clubs that raced Japanese cars late at night the first Fast and Furious movie revolved around a racer and ex-convict Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew and Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker), an undercover cop who later joins the crew. The movie chronicles the protagonists of the movie as they clash with other street racers and the law, and ultimately ‘do the right thing’.
