Trivia

One featured car is the Toyota Chaser, a Camry-sized sedan powered by a 2.5 liter in-line six twin turbo. The same engine powers the Toyota Soarer (the Japanese version of the Lexus SC300/400), the Toyota Aristo (the Japanese version of the Lexus GS300/400), and the 1987-92 Toyota Supra. See more »

Goofs

Sean's father is credited as "Major Boswell". In a scene where he is in Naval uniform, his shoulder board clearly displays the two full stripes of a full Lieutenant, and the collar insignia, while improperly gold, also has the two bars of a Lieutenant. The rank of full Lieutenant in the Navy is O-3. Major is used in the Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force, but not the Navy. It's O-4; the Naval equivalent is Lieutenant Commander. Major is denoted by a gold oak leaf cluster, not twin silver bars. A Lieutenant Commander in the Navy also carries the gold oak leaf cluster on his collar, and the shoulder board carries two full strips and one half strip between. See more »

Quotes

Shawn Boswell: Why'd you let me race your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.
Han: Why not?
Shawn Boswell: 'Cause that's a lot of money.
Han: 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.

Refreshing and innovating
29 October 2006 | by (Sintra - Portugal) – See all my reviews

"The Fast And The Furious" series opened the cinema for a whole new way to make car movies. This 3rd movie from this series added the cherry on the top of a sweet cake. Lots of action during the whole movie and, I must say, a very good argument. Way better than the 2nd movie with some characters very well created and also their evolution through out the movie.

Although, sometimes, it seams that the story walks a bit too fast and things happen too early, this 3rd movie has one of the best arguments of the 3. And I'm still undecided if it is better or not than the 1st movie.

Some really good change in this 3rd movie was the feature of drifts instead of pure racing (shown so far in the previous series). THAT is the main innovation in this series as long as in cars movies. The creators of "The Fast and The Furious" were PROBABLY pioneers in making underground car movies and they were surely the first doing a movie about drifting.

I must say that Tokyo was indeed a very good place to film this kind of driving.

Just to finish, I just wanna say there's a great surprise at the end of the movie!!! ;)
