Part 3 of ONE LAST RIDE
Woah. What was I thinking a few years back when I first saw this one? I used to hate this movie and I was completely dreading to rewatch this one, but color me surprised. No, VERY surprised. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is easily the best film so far in the franchise, blowing the first two out of the water. There's an actual plot with understandable motives, a much better sense of pacing, some sick car races and a somewhat memorable villain.
However, I still had some issues with it. Lucas Black might possibly be the worst actor to grace the big screen in quite some time. His acting always garners some…
The third instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift takes its street-racing thrills to a whole different continent, brings a new freshness into the series by discarding the original cast of its predecessors while adding a few new styles, but this new vibe fizzles out soon as the plot is marred by numerous shortcomings.
Set many years after the events of the first two movies when series chronology is taken into account, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift tells the story of a high-school teenager with a penchant for car racing who's sent to Tokyo to avoid prison time in America for his illegal street racing activities but soon discovers an…

Part 3 of One Last Ride
"You’re like the Justin Timberlake of Japan, right?"
When I originally saw Tokyo Drift a few years ago, Ihated it because it didn't include any of the original cast (except for…) and I also didn't dig the transition from America to Japan.
Younger me is a fucking idiot.
Not only is Tokyo Drift my favorite out of the first three installments, but it is also super cool and super entertaining.
Lucas Black is Sean “Doesn't Give a Fuck” Boswell this time around, replacing Paul Walker’s O’Conner as the lead (white) dude. The one big thing I remembered about this character, from the first time…
Easily the weakest installment in the franchise and the only one that I truly dislike. The racing sequences are fun to watch and the film does have nice cinematography but other than that this movie is pretty terrible. Lucas Black is awful here and it doesn't help that his character is incredibly flat and emotionless. The music is also very distracting and the dialogue is cringe worthy. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is a boring, dull and completely unnecessary addition to this franchise.
After a surprisingly fine starting 20 minutes, "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" completely falls off the rails with it's terribly written screenplay and soporific characters. The first race sequence is honestly the only fun action sequence throughout the whole entire film.
These movies wouldn't normally be my sort of thing but with Sky Movies constantly streaming film after film, the odd one seems to get a watch. This one set in Tokyo is just that little bit different from the other couple I've seen, no Vin Diesel (almost)for a start which is very refreshing.
Justin Lin directs this full throttle film with a lot of rather fit young Asian ladies and the customary bad boy with a past. Lucas Black takes on the mantle of the street racer this time around who's shipped off the Japan after trouble back in the States. An army brat, he struggles to fit in and is soon out on a limb with more outsiders. This…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Here we go, the ONLY one of this franchise that I had come close to seeing. I'd never seen it from start to finish but had seen it all several times when I worked at a movie theater back in the day (10 years ago!).
I remember strangely not hating it back then and not much has changed over the last 10 years.
This one sees the series attempt to explore new characters and locations as both Paul and Vin (well sort of) sit this one out and instead we get Lucas Black, Bow Wow and a load of Japanese kids.
It is most definitely a hard sell as we drop Brian's story which everyone must have assumed was what…
"You know who we need to complete this movie? Bow Wow."
Le plus faible des chapitres de la série jusqu'à maintenant. On passera rapidement outre la pauvreté des dialogues et la qualité chancelante de la plupart des interprétations (particulièrement celle de Lucas Black, le Paul Walker des pauvres, qui provoque bâillements et haussements d'épaule à chaque apparition à l'écran) pour s'attarder à la seule question pertinente : comment sont les courses de voiture? Justin Lin, qui réalisera les trois prochaines suites, est un choix tout à fait adéquat et, la plupart du temps, filme les poursuites d'une manière simple et économique, s'assurant toujours d'ancrer les véhicules dans leur environnement pour créer un maximum de tension. Ceci dit, il a aussi une tendance, qui avait déjà commencé à apparaître dans les deux…
it s not as bad as i remember it...
Well, shoot. Tokyo Drift is probably not four stars until you're longing for more Han, but once you're hooked, you're hooked. In retrospect, it's a fun movie for the franchise, which takes weird chances rather than stick to the "crime sting" formula of the first two. The bizarre high-school J-drama sequences? The weird way that drifting at night had an almost pulsating, tear-drop effect? It's a more clever movie than 2 Fast by quite a bit.
But, well, it makes two deadly mistakes. The high school thing is pretty far-fetched; it really takes a lot of apologizing to allow for no other Westerners to appear at that high-school and for all of them to be part of the street racing scene. And Lucas Black is really abysmal; he may be the worst actor in a Major Motion Picture I've ever seen.
I feel like I just watched a ninth grader's fantasy...
This movie delights me
All Japanese films I've seen.
