Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, when the baseball is thrown at Sean's car, it goes past him and lands on the passenger floorboard. In the next shot, the ball falls to the ground, with glass landing behind the rear tire, as if the ball had been thrown from inside the car. See more »

Decent, Hardly any substance, But Sometime to watch :D
1 August 2006 | by andykhiem87See all my reviews

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.
