During the chase, Han is t-boned at an intersection. The car is hit near the rear end, then begins to slide around. When the angle changes, the car is hoisted in the air, and the left side of Han's car comes apart like a paper bag, even though he was hit on the right side. See more »
[Talking about when he won his first race]
The day I got my license is the day I got my first speeding ticket. Day after that I won my first race, I beat this rich kid by three lengths.I've gotta admit, it felt good! It felt like...
Like everything else just disappears...
No past and no future...
No problems. Just the moment...

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 »
The first film was BREAK POINT with cars. The second one was Miami VICE with cars. This is REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE... with more cars. To be honest, I kinda liked this one better than the last two, despite Lucas Black somehow beating Paul Walker as the least charismatic actor in a starring role. What I mainly like is the direction by Justin Lin. The focus on police undercover stories is dropped in favor of the street racing culture and its connections to the mob. Was actually delighted to see Sonny Chiba appear, I must have missed his name during the opening credits. Purely as a movie about car action, I think it succeeds better than the first two. There's a goofy quality to it that kinda helps one go along with things. Best to sum that up is Lucas Black smiling like a dork with blood on his teeth, living for the thrill. That's probably what this film series needed, and less soap opera/undercover drama. Consider me surprised.
