When Han and Sean are in the RX-7 and talking, the engine tone shifts at least 7 times, as if the car has 7 or 8 gears, most of which have the same ratio and thus engine tone. Sean's hands remain on the steering wheel throughout the drive, yet the shifts still occur. In addition, they do not have the pitch a manual car would have (revs dropping from engaging the clutch, then shifting into the next gear). The two transmission choices for the car were a 4 speed automatic and a 5 speed manual. This is a recurring mistake in the Fast and Furious movie line. See more »

Usually when a film has a Part III, it leaves you with, "Why did they make a third film?" Case in point, "Smokey & The Bandit". Now I am dating myself if that's the only film I can come up with when it comes to trilogies. But car movies are seldomly done in trilogies. Star Wars, The Godfather, Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future are the only exceptions that have worked in the past because there's an on-going story line.
Tokyo Drift was a good film. Good plot line (if you disagree, then you're a "Too much to think" film-goer, stay with chick-flicks then). Good action. And of course, cool cars. The fact that it strayed away from Part I & II was a good idea. And film director, Justin Lin did an great job getting his vision to film. The mounted camera on a super-fast go-cart gave some spectacular shots.
It's a good escape film with the "new kid in town, gets beat up or loses in some sort of competition, learns from a local to be better then wins in the end." But for a trilogy film it's excellent compared to other Part III films that have been released.
