Goofs

The wrecked S30 at the junk yard in the beginning is a 2+2 model, not a coupe like the S30 driven in the rest of the movie. See more »

I voted with five. I should vote with less but the end was good. As most of the Asian movies this was long too, not because of it's time but because of the empty scenes. It could be more dynamic and cut some of the repeating scenes. One of the things I disliked was the lack of emotions with actors. They driven cars with 180km/h but acted like they are sitting at home and drinking tea. I could not feel the tension of the moment. What about cars, for me Porche wasn't the best choice for racing car, but anyway it worked for this movie. In most American productions with Asian actors there are Asian music, in this movie all the music was American, it sounds malapropos to me, just a personal opinion. It was not bad but it could not make me wait for the end, being excited. I felt it more like personal drama of the characters than a racing movie. They probably could create more moments in the garage and more information about fixing the "Z" instead of a few multiplied scenes with the actress who never dared to race in real combat with her GT-R. Movie could be better, it was enjoyable but not something memorable.
