速度与激情The Fast and the Furious 剧情介绍英文
Elite street racer and ex-convict Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew: Jesse (Chad Lindberg), Leon (Johnny Strong), Vince (Matt Schulze), and Dom's girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), use three modified 1995 Honda Civics to perpetrate a string of high-speed, semi-trailer truck hijackings, stealing over $$6 million in merchandise. LAPD officer Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) is sent undercover on a joint LAPD-FBI investigation to apprehend the gang. Brian uses his cover job at The Racer's Edge, an aftermarket parts shop, to make connections and infiltrate the local street racing scene. He enters his modified 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS-T 420A into an illegal race with Dom and two other drivers by bartering the pink slips, but loses to Dom's modified 1993 Mazda RX-7. Brian gains Dom's respect, however, when he arrives in time to prevent Dom from being caught by police responding to the race. As they flee, Dom and Brian accidentally venture into southern California's "Little Saigon", encountering Dom's rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune) and his gang, who open fire with submachine guns; rupturing the nitrous tank and destroying the Eclipse in the resulting explosion.
The next day, Brian delivers a veenerr to Dom's shop and offers his talents as a driver to repay the debt incurred from losing the race. Brian begins dating Dom's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Jesse goes to work restoring the Supra. The investigation eventually leads Brian to suspect Tran and his gang of performing the hijackings and he reports the findings to his superior, Sergeant Tanner (Ted Levine) and FBI Special Agent Bilkins (Thom Barry). When the subsequent raid of Tran's garage prove him to be innocent, Bilkins and Tanner return to their original theory that Dominic and his crew are the perpetrators. Tanner warns Brian not to let his feelings for Mia or his friendship with Dom cloud his judgment, and Bilkins gives Brian thirty-six hours to break the case.
With the Supra now fully prepped to race, Brian presses Dom for information regarding his income, citing the shop alone wouldn't pay for all his racing expenditures. Dom gives Brian an invitation to "Race Wars", a massive street racing event held in the desert, and informs him they'll talk once Brian has proven his worth on the strip. Jesse races and loses his imprisoned father's modified 1995 Volkswagen Jetta to Tran's modified 2000 Honda S2000. Jesse panics and hastily flees the track, prompting Tran to confront Dom and demand that he retrieve the car for him. Dom refuses and is provoked into a fight in which he brutally beats Tran. Early the next morning, Dom and his crew leave Race Wars to commit another hijacking.
Brian confesses to Mia his status as an undercover cop and convinces her to come with him to save her brother and his friends from the armed truck drivers. He tracks Dom's location by triangulating his cell phone signal and they arrive at the hijacking in-progress to find Letty, badly injured at the car accident, and Vince critically wounded, having been shot by the truck driver. Brian and Mia work together with Dom, Leon and Letty to rescue Vince. Brian then makes the difficult decision to blow his cover to the crew by phoning in for a medivac. The revelation enrages Dom, but he contains himself and flees with Leon, Letty and Mia as the medivac arrives for Vince.
Brian follows Dom to his house and holds him at gunpoint to prevent him from fleeing. Jesse arrives shortly afterwards, apologizing for his actions at Race Wars and pleading for Dom's help with Tran. Moments later, Tran and his cousin Lance (Reggie Lee) perform a drive-by shooting and kills Jesse. Brian and Dom chase them, with Dom was driving his late father's modified 1970 Dodge Charger. Dom forces Lance's motorcycle off the road, severely injuring him, while Brian shoots and kills Tran. Afterwards, Brian and Dom engage in an impromptu street race, narrowly avoiding a passing train. Dom is then very badly injured when he collides with a semi-truck and rolls his car twice, rendering the Charger undrivable. Instead of arresting him, Brian hands over the keys to the Supra and lets Dom escape, making good on his promise to deliver a "ten second car." Some time later, Dom is seen driving through Baja California, Mexico in a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
