Trivia

In the vending machine cafeteria scene (at around 59 mins) Sean and Neela are using chopsticks but they are not eating Japanese noodles. The writing on the boxes says "meat spaghetti" in katakana (the Japanese phonetic alphabet). See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Shawn Boswell: So, how did you end up over here, anyway?
Han: Well, you know those old Westerns where the cowboys make a run for the border? This is my Mexico.
Shawn Boswell: Why'd you let me race with your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.
Han: Why not?
Shawn Boswell: 'Cause it'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. And one car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of, that's a price I can live with.
Han: Look at all those people down there. ...

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!!! ;)
