Trivia

After poor test screenings, Universal Pictures asked Vin Diesel to make a cameo appearance to boost its box-office potential. Diesel agreed to appear if Universal would relinquish the rights to the "Riddick" franchise to him. Diesel was then able to make Riddick (2013) independently. See more »

I didn't get it.
31 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so excited to see the next F&F....that being said, the first 75% of Tokyo Drift had some moments, but for the most part, I was bored with it. I could never buy into some of the characters (ie the main girl, I forget her name) which made it hard to take in the movie as a whole. The story line was there, but it just didn't do it for me.

The ending was pretty cool. From the final race to the ending with the cool Dodge (and who was in it). A sequel without any of the regulars doesn't make sense.

This should've been a movie by itself, not of the Fast & Furious kingdom. Maybe I would've liked it a little better....maybe not.

I gave a 6 of 10 just because it had the hot girls and hot cars, otherwise, it underwhelmed me.
