GO FAST (2008)

Marek, a crime squad officer, sets out to avenge the death of his partner and best friend, who was killed by drug traffickers. He asks for a posting to a new undercover unit created to infiltrate a drug gang that imports hashish from Morocco using the “Go Fast” method. A fleet of high-powered speedboats and cars races across the Mediterranean to Spain and then France, loaded with drugs. A cop movie nothing that has not be done before. A good French gangster movie, for once dealing with a contemporary issue (drug trafficking from Morocco to France). Reasonably pleasant to watch. In Europe, since the early 1990s, this practice (go fast) has been developed on the road,with cars with 8 cylinders or greater horse power, often stolen. It is a rallying point to another with two vehicles on the highway, one used to transport goods, the other serving as a “scout”. The tactic however is to drive fast as possible speed play a crucial role only in case where there is trouble with the police , traffickers must drive at moderate speed to arouse less suspicion possible. The goal is to foil attempts to intercept or customs rival traffickers. The first car is the one who warn about customs officers. sometimes the convoys includes on or more cars just in case they need to intervene and protect the car who transport the drugs. This technique has inspired an action movie Go Fast and police, Olivier Van Hoofstadt, released in October 2008. The technique “Go Fast” by boat is also detailed in the action film Miami Vice cop and Michael Mann (released in 2006).
