The Fast and the Furious
He is first seen blowing up Brian O'Conner's car with his machine guns near the beginning of the film. Later as O'Conner and Dominic Toretto spy on Tran at his garage, he is seen with his accomplice Lance interrogating a man named Ted Gassner regarding engines in his vehicles, which is also where they spot several boxes of merchandise in his garage (the kind being robbed in the film from truckers). This would lead Brian O'Conner to organize a large SWAT assault team to invade Tran's house, only to find a few minor weapon possession charges and other minor issues leading his father to punching him disrespected after he heard that his son destroyed a car of a police officer and hijacking. After being bailed out, Tran is later seen at Race Wars, racing Jesse for pink slips. Both Dominic and Brian warn Jesse about Tran's vehicle having over $100,000 worth of upgrades under the hood of his vehicle, but Jesse ignores them and races Tran anyway.
After Tran wins, he then confronts Dominic, accusing and blaming him of the SWAT team invasion of his home, saying it was an act of disrespect to his family for being narc'ed out by someone (unaware that the man responsible, Brian O'Conner was right there in front of him). Dominic then delivers a right hook to Tran's face and the two men scuffle on the ground before being broken up by the crowd and Dominic tells Tran "I never narc'ed on nobody"!,before being lead away by Vince who tells Dom to chill out. Tran and his accomplice Lance later pull a drive-by shooting at Dominic's house, narrowly missing everyone except Jesse, who was killed in the process. Brian and Dominic later chase after the two, ending with Brian fatally shooting Tran in the back, ending his life.
