Before Sean and Morimoto race, Han makes a bet with DK, putting up his 72 Skyline for the chance to receive DK's 86 Corolla. In the 1980s, the Corolla was called the Sprinter in Japan, and the 86 Corolla they talked about is a Sprinter Trueno. Only America and other export countries had Corollas. See more »

The Fast and the Furious reborn in Tokyo
5 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

When I first heard about Tokyo Drift and realised that it would feature none of the original cast members, I was sure it would be a major let down that was just cashing in, so I ignored it. Eventually, I sat down to watch the movie when it arrived on Sky and I must say that I'm impressed. The film more than exceeded my low expectations and whilst it way a little bit routine in places, I had a great time watching it.

Not only is this film a damn good car/action film in it's own right, it is arguably the best in the series. The new cast is great with Lucas Black heading up the roster as Sean Boswell, an American street racer who moves to Japan and becomes embroiled in the underworld Tokyo street racing scene. Black proves to be better to watch than Paul Walker was in the previous movies in the franchise because he is a better actor (which isn't saying much but still...), whilst the other characters all have chemistry on screen too, creating an authentic Japanese street racing feel. The stand out character in the movie for me though was Sung Kang as Han, easily the coolest character in the film.

Justin Lin does a great job of capturing the art of drifting as well as keeping a good sense of speed and a focus on the character development. Whilst it's never going to win any Oscars, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is infinitely better than 2 Fast 2 Furious and is in some ways better than the original movie too. If Lin can continue this trend into the fourth film in 2009, I will be the first in line at the cinema to see Vin Diesel return to the franchise.

If like me, you were initially put off by the lack of ties to the first two movies, give Tokyo Drift a chance and you'll probably find you'll enjoy it. Car fans should have no problems liking the subject matter (Cars and beautiful girls) and whilst it doesn't make you think a whole lot, you really can't go wrong with the 3rd effort in the popular Fast and Furious franchise. Oh and by the way, the last scene is guaranteed to make fans of the series smile, the movie is worth watching just for that.
