Paul Walker wasn't asked to return because the studio felt he was too old. The first draft of the script featured the return of Diesel's character, Dominic Toretto. See more »
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 »
Why'd you let me race your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.
'Cause that's a lot of money.
I have money, it's trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of? That's a price I can live with.

Where do i start with this film? When i first heard this film wasn't going to have any of the original cast in it i felt rather disappointed but my opinion has totally changed after seeing it for the first time.The cast in it are great.Lucas plays his part well as does bow wow and the guy who plays Han. The things that stood out for me were the racing scenes mainly.There are a lot more than there were in the other 2 films and in my own opinion the races in this third are a lot better than any in the first two. The story isn't half bad either.I actually prefer this one to the 2nd film because of that as well as the racing. This is definitely a must see for all fans of the other two films though.
