The Gang: Dominic Toretto's crew
The Film: The Fast And The Furious (2001)
Led By: Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel)
Enemies: Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), the LAPD.
Why Are They Cool? Looking for a hard-partying, pedal-to-the-metal road crew? Toretto's team are the ones for you.
They get to drive souped-up street cars in illegal races, skipping between adrenalin-fuelled death matches and hijacking trucks for cash and kicks.
Their one big fault? Letting snarky undercover police types get close enough to take them down - though Dom and some of the crew survived to go south for this year's follow-up, Fast And Furious.
