Think of the Fast & Furious movie franchise and the first face to come to your mind is inevitably that of Dominic Toretto's character. the character played by Vin Diesel is undoubtedly one of the most important of the saga, if not the most important of all. But what do we know about him?
Over the course of the 8 films in which Toretto is among the protagonists, the narrative often lingers on our past. one of the latest news concerns the existence of a brother never mentioned, Jakob, with whom Dominic will reunite during the long-awaited Fast & Furious 9 movie.
However, we had already met other members of the Toretto family. the first is obviously Mia, a key character in the evolution of the good Dom, while the father of the protagonist of the franchise certainly deserves some attention, whose name has never been revealed to us.
Toretto Senior is practically the cause of Dominic's love for engines, as evidenced by the fact that the latter helped his father put together the pieces of a splendid 1970 Dodge Charger. of the tragedy that forever marked the life of the Toretto family. during a race, in fact, Dom's father went off the road to crash into a wall, dying instantly.
A painful past that of Dominic, which is however at the same time the reason for the incredible sense of family and loyalty that pervades our hero since his first appearance. Speaking of the famous franchise, meanwhile, the Fast & Furious 4K Blu-Ray is available on Amazon for the 20th anniversary of the first film.
