To avoid time in prison he is sent to Tokyo to live with his father who is in the military.

Twinkie appears to run a smuggling type operation, where he sells a wide range of goods (perhaps obtained cheaply on US bases). This is almost unheard of in Japan, where there is no shortage of legitimate retail outlets to purchase pretty much anything. Smuggled goods could be much cheaper than retail, since he presumably would not have to pay tariffs or charge sales tax. See more »
Decent, Hardly any substance, But Sometime to watch :D
What can I say about this movie that many haven't already noted? Well first of all I saw this movie twice, and probably shouldn't have. The cinematography was phenomenal and the racing sequences were jaw dropping. Unfortunately, this movie lacks substance. The storyline was really iffy and probably not likely to happen and the acting was a little shaky.
But thats not the reason why everyone goes to watch this movie. We all go to see the cars and the girls which fortunately delivers. Beautiful cars, beautiful ladies and beautiful scenery and destructive driving is never in short supply in this genre and the scenery of Japan is just breathtaking. All in all, just a movie you'll want to see with the boys.
