"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" Changes Direction, but I Love It!
I love the previous "Fast and Furious" films and Japan. When some guys make a film fusing "Fast and Furious" and Tokyo, I love it even more! Yes!
The third film in the franchise is a significant shift, as this feels like a spin off instead of a sequel. As Sean (Lucas Boswell) avoids jail time back in the US and moves to Japan, he finds himself in the underworld of drifting. He meets new friends Twinkie (Bow Wow) and Han (Sung Kang), a potential love interest Neela (Nathalie Kelley), and some guys who he may mess up with.
As a "Fast and Furious" film, expect what you expect: car sequences that you just love to watch and always thrill your soul. It's nice to see how Sean learns to drift, from crashing to stuff nearby until he finally learns the craft. I love how this film accurately captures the beauty Japan has to offer: the trees, the houses, the neon lights, the night skyline, everything! I like some romance in this movie, just the right amount of cheese. Haha! Drifting, a different way to race, is introduced in this film, so that's some addition. Some emotional scenes may get you, so watch out.
Want some good thrills? Then watch this and be satisfied!
