Trivia

During the last chase sequence, a helicopter shot shows a rooftop football ground. That ground is not of football but futsal, a Brazilian originated cousin of football. See more »

Goofs

Various boosted cars (such as the RX-7) do not make the signature sounds of upgraded turbocharged cars throughout the film, such as the turbo spooling and the blow-off valve, until they "hit the nitrous." Nitrous does not change the car's sound. See more »

Quotes

Shawn Boswell: [Shawn engages the nitrous in Han's RX-7 and zips past a Skyline. He suddenly notices a police car parked on the left side of the road. The cops clock him at 197 km/h. Shawn is surprised when he sees that the police car is not bothering to chase him] What the?
Han: Police cars here are only factory tuned.If you can do better than 180K they can't catch you, so they don't even try.
Shawn Boswell: [Chuckles] You know what, I'm beginning to like this country already?

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!!! ;)
