A gun-for-hire known only as Agent 47 hired by a group known only as 'The Organization' is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Russia and Eastern Europe.

To avoid time in prison he is sent to Tokyo to live with his father who is in the military.

Paul Walker wasn't asked to return as the studio felt he was too old. The first draft of the script featured the return of Vin Diesel's character Domonic Torreto. See more »
When Sean is first given the red Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX, his numerous collisions while practicing around the harbor tear off the rear spoiler. When he starts practicing on the hills, the EVO has no spoiler, but when he first drives uphill, the spoiler is on the trunk. Subsequent shots show the EVO without the spoiler. See more »
Why'd you let me race your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.
'Cause that's a lot of money.
I have money, it's trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of? That's a price I can live with.

Decent, Hardly any substance, But Sometime to watch :D
What can I say about this movie that many haven't already noted? Well first of all I saw this movie twice, and probably shouldn't have. The cinematography was phenomenal and the racing sequences were jaw dropping. Unfortunately, this movie lacks substance. The storyline was really iffy and probably not likely to happen and the acting was a little shaky.
But thats not the reason why everyone goes to watch this movie. We all go to see the cars and the girls which fortunately delivers. Beautiful cars, beautiful ladies and beautiful scenery and destructive driving is never in short supply in this genre and the scenery of Japan is just breathtaking. All in all, just a movie you'll want to see with the boys.
