Goofs

When Sean and Han escape Han's shop, they drift while trying to evade D.K. and his crew. They would have much better chance if they drove in a clean line, instead of drifting, which makes the car much slower. See more »

Quotes

Lieutenant Boswell: You know Sean, the Japanese have a saying, "The nail that sticks out gets hammered."

Alternate Versions

For the Japanese version the scene with the final race is altered. The Yakuza member starting the final race is shown to be having all his fingers instead of missing four. See more »

Much better than the others.
13 June 2006 | by la-fashionistaSee all my reviews

Got a free screening pass to see it 6-12, saw it with some car buddies, the dork I am took notes.

This movie had more semblance of a plot than the rest of the franchise, the action stayed fresh and actually flowed with the plot, and the characters actually had motivation this time! There weren't any HUGE glaring inaccuracies (other than daddy throwing sonny the keys to a car with NO ENGINE in it...) The three cameos in the film were well placed, though a bit campy at the very end. The cars and action sequences were amazingly choreographed, one even leaving my whole theatre clapping for the protagonist.

I give 8/10 because of low expectations, and being totally blown away when it was much better than I expected.
