Trivia

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.

Tokyo Drift
3 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now let me state I haven't seen it in a long time so I'm going by memory of how I felt about this film.

The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift is the third film in the series and unlike the first two films it doesn't have the original cast members which is a let down since it's normally wise to have the cast reprise their roles for the films.

But for the story for this film it just makes you understand why they went to a new cast.

The plot centers around an American Teenager Sean Boswell (Played by Lucas Black) who gets into trouble with the law after a street race with an high school kid so to avoid going to jail he is forced to move in with his father Major Boswell (Played by Brian Goodman) in Tokyo, Japan.

But old habits are not easy to bring as he begins to rival with Takashi (Played by Brain Tee) who serves as the film main Antagonist, the feud begins when Lucas begins to chase his girlfriend Neela (Played by Nathalie Kelley).

What most fans would be disappointed about the film is that the film features no of the original characters.

But the film plot is interesting but still feels kind of let down considering. Plus we first see Han in the series

The action scenes and taunts are good for the film despite it flaw acting but it just a hard film to not talk about.

The film is just hold back for many reasons but if you're a fan of the series give it a watch.

I give The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift an 7 out of 10
