A motorcycle re-spin of The Fast and the Furious that also happens to be a much better movie. Derek Luke, the intense young star of Antwone Fisher, sports a shaved head and a look of troubled sleekness to play the loyal and earnest Kid, who has lost his father in a freak racing accident. Kid forms his own club, the multiethnic Biker Boyz, and then spends the rest of the film trying to win a race with Smoke (Laurence Fishburne), a middle-aged speedster king who's at once his rival and role model. The great Fishburne is a wizard at conjuring mystique, whether he's staring down the upstart Kid or eating Kid Rock, as a scrungy fellow racer, for breakfast.
