Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

One featured car is the Toyota Chaser, a Camry-sized sedan powered by a 2.5 liter in-line six twin turbo. The same engine powers the Toyota Soarer (the Japanese version of the Lexus SC300/400), the Toyota Aristo (the Japanese version of the Lexus GS300/400), and the 1987-92 Toyota Supra. See more »
During the first race, in America, the Viper drives through a shadow of the house before Sean takes the shortcut between the houses. When the camera moves out and shows both cars from above, the shadow is gone. See more »
What'd you expect? You didn't just play with fire, you soaked the matches in gasoline.

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 Fast And The Furious" series opened the cinema for a whole new way to make car movies. This 3rd movie from this series added the cherry on the top of a sweet cake. Lots of action during the whole movie and, I must say, a very good argument. Way better than the 2nd movie with some characters very well created and also their evolution through out the movie.
Although, sometimes, it seams that the story walks a bit too fast and things happen too early, this 3rd movie has one of the best arguments of the 3. And I'm still undecided if it is better or not than the 1st movie.
Some really good change in this 3rd movie was the feature of drifts instead of pure racing (shown so far in the previous series). THAT is the main innovation in this series as long as in cars movies. The creators of "The Fast and The Furious" were PROBABLY pioneers in making underground car movies and they were surely the first doing a movie about drifting.
I must say that Tokyo was indeed a very good place to film this kind of driving.
Just to finish, I just wanna say there's a great surprise at the end of the movie!!! ;)
