    No difference from its predecessors except for its location.

    Before I start I would like to say that it breaks my heart to see all these gorgeous cars get wasted like that. I never heard of drifting till this movie came across my path and I was intrigued by what it entails. Anyway, I rather enjoyed the first one, the second one was decent but could have been better, and “Tokyo Drift” was…….interesting (?). If one thing's for certain, every installment of "The Fast & The Furious" is known for several things: cardboard acting, bare-bones plot, and tense racing scenes. For the first two movies, Paul Walker was the lead, and in every movie, he had to go undercover as a gangsta street racer taking down a syndicate. Sure, those movies weren't really deep, but with a good sense of humor to back up the implausibility, no one cared. Those movies made buck. Well, now that Paul Walker has left, along with Tyrese Gibson and Vin, the latest installment switches gears for a new type of ball game. Instead of an undercover cop, we got Brian O'Conner, as Lucas Black, (who almost ruined the movie for me due to his terrible accent and unconvincing age) as the trouble maker going hand to hand against the Yakuza. Justin Lin ("Better Luck Tomorrow") is, of course, leading the franchise to a new direction trying to add some bones to the franchise, but with the original producers of the franchise - Amanda Cohen (sister of director Rob Cohen, or so I think) and Neal H. Moritz - involved, it's pretty much the same deal. But that does NOT mean there's some fun to be had. They did a great job choreographing the cars and street scenes which kept my adrenaline pumping. They've done away with the "hyperspace" graphics when someone presses the nitrous button. There are a few scenes where the "hero", whilst learning to drift, thwacks a wall and the car doesn't show the damage in the next scene, but does at the end, but that is just down to bad editing. You'd think it'd be easy enough these days to CGI a few dents in for effect. Obviously, as soon as the intro and credits (for the first time) kick in, you get that feeling that you're not seeing an Oscar-winning hit here. For this installment of "F&F," the budgets has gone smaller, but the ingredients are still there: CG-rendered cars racing across twisty highways, sexy girls populating clubs, minimal use of plot, and basically the worst acting you ever seen. Personally I didn't like Bow Wow's character too much. He seemed out of place in Tokyo and I'm not saying that just because he is not Asian. Bow Wow's character, Twinkie, seemed a little too...American for Japan. He had been living there longer than Sean, yet Sean some how managed to learn more Japanese than him. The only man that I feel saves the acting, possibly the whole movie, is Sung Kang. His character, Han, is so slick, cool, that you can even believe an actor this good signed on to this production. Other then “Tokyo Drift” is fairly decent but not as strong as the other two installments.

    Good one

    This movie is far better than the 2nd installation in this trilogy.
