With the loss of Paul Walker, who is the charming blue-eyed actor best known for his role as the undercover officer Brian O’Conner in the Fast and Furious film franchise series, we suddenly remembered that the film already has up to six installments.
Walker has been filming Fast and Furious 7 with director James Wan, but things took a turn when his car crashed into a tree and exploded. To pay tribute to the handsome 40-year old, let’s look back at Walker’s work in one of the most popular action film franchise which made him a household name – The Fast and the Furious.
The Fast and the Furious (2001)
The first installment of the street racing action film tells of Brian O’Conner, an undercover LAPD officer and his first encounter with street racer Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). As a part of his job, Brian was meant to unveil the truth about Dominic and street racing, but instead, he does something unexpected for the enemy.
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
In the second installment of The Fast and the Furious film series, ex-cop Brian teams up with his ex-con friend Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) to work undercover with US Customs Service agent, Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) to bring down a Miami-based drug lord, Carter Verone.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
Featuring an all-new cast and setting, Toyko Drift sees high-school students racing their cars to win girlfriends. After a crash, Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) is sent to Tokyo to be with his father. There, he continues racing and fights his way to the top. Paul Walker didn’t have a part in this movie, but his Fast & Furious co-actor Vin Diesel made an appearance. Tokyo Drift also features American rapper Bow Wow.
Fast and Furious (2009)
With the original cast taking on their original roles, Fast & Furious sees Dominic and his crew hijacking fuel tankers in the Dominican Republic. One day, Dominic gets a call from his sister who tells him that his girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), had been murdered after getting into a near fatal car accident. In order to source out her killer, Dominic comes in contact with agent Brian O’Conner.
Fast 5 (2011)
Departing from its street racing theme, the fifth installment follows Dominic, Brian and Mia as they plan a heist to steal $100 milion from a corrupt business man, while being pursued for arrest by US Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson).
Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
After their successful heist in Fast Five, Dominic and the gang retired, but still remained as wanted fugitives. Agent Luke Hobbs offers to clear the group’s criminal records and give them freedom in exchange for a helping hand to take down a skilled mercenary organization led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and his right-hand woman, the presumably-dead Letty.
