The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift DVD Review
Lucas Black and Bow Wow live in the world of fast cars and hot girls in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Is this lastest sequel worth racing to theaters for or does it crash and burn?
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - Crash Course
Sean Boswell (played by Lucas Black) is a teen speed-freak whose love of street racing has led to several run-ins with the law and a few crashed-up cars. When police threaten to send Sean to jail after he totals his Dodge Charger in a spectacular street race through a construction site, his mom sends him to Tokyo to live with his strict military father. Sean arrives in Japan and before he's had a chance to taste the sushi, he meets Twinkie (played by Bow Wow), who introduces him to the Tokyo street racing scene - a world of major babes, mega muscle cars and monsterous egos.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - Racing Romance
After Twinkie hooks up Sean with a new ride, he gets his first taste of "drift" racing, in which drivers let momentum carry their vehicles sideways through sharp curves in parking garages or on steep mountain roads. While learning the art of drifting, Sean falls in love with the girlfriend of Tokyo's meanest street racer. If Sean wants to stay in Japan and keep his girl, he must prove himself in a winner-take all drift race.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - High Speed Action
The best parts of the lastest movie in The Fast and the Furious series are the street races and spectacular crashes. The races through the tight turns of Tokyo's streets and mountain roads will have your head spinning faster than the wheels of a suped-up muscle car. So, if possible, don't bring your parents to this flick. After seeing it, it's unlikely they'll let you anywhere near their car until you turn 30.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - DVD Features
If you're a fan of fast cars and even faster races, then you should add The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift to your DVD collection. This disc comes with commentary from the director, deleted scenes, a featurette on how the stunts were preformed in the movie and info on the location of the flick. This DVD is guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours after the movie is over.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - Bottom Line
If you're into fast cars, high speed chases and a never-ending parade of hot babes (and really, who isn't?), then check out The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. It's not as good as the original and the plot is thinner than a Japanese supermodel's waist - but the street-racing scenes are mind-blowing on the big screen and the girls will have you begging your parents to let you spend the next term of school in Tokyo.
