    The opening half-hour may prove to be a disreputable classic of pedal-to-the-metal filmmaking.

    Pumping high-performance gas back into the series after a second lap sputter, third entry stays in high gear most of the way with several exhilarating racing sequences, and benefits greatly from the evocative Japanese setting.
  3. As idiot car-crash movies go, "Tokyo Drift" is pretty fun, and certainly a more-than-decent entry in this franchise.

    The director also makes a nod to Japan's rich history of genre filmmaking by casting action legend J. J. Sonny Chiba as a cigar-smoking yakuza. Chiba's presence momentarily classes up a passable youths-ploitation flick into a transcendent piece of movie trash.

    The F&F series is the 21st century's beach movie, one for some beachless future world where the kids are crowning 25 and seem capable of living off of hair gel and exhaust fumes.

    It’s a weak sequel, to a weak series.

    The F&F franchise ran out of gas half way into the 2001 original.

    This movie is hilarious - the most I've laughed in the past six months. It starts out completely ridiculous and only gets more so, This movie is hilarious - the most I've laughed in the past six months. It starts out completely ridiculous and only gets more so, approaching the level of sheer one-dimensional unbelievability within the first two minutes. Hundreds of busty girls, Japanese who don't speak a drop of Japanese, evil mobsters, and hundreds of Maaad Driiifts - this is what makes American cinema great. Every conventional gauge of a good movie fails, but that;s where it suceeds - its so goddarn awful that its incredibly perfect. No joke, Tokyo Drift exceeded every expectation I had, and they were all pretty high. Expand

    I think this movie is the best of "The Fast And The Furious" trilogy. It was a great idea to get a main actor with a texan language accent, I think this movie is the best of "The Fast And The Furious" trilogy. It was a great idea to get a main actor with a texan language accent, for example. I also think it's great the way this movie crushes some "movie clichés". The cast is great, having the gorgeous Keiko Kitagawa included. Also, the American Muscle cars are something that makes worth to watch this fantastic movie. Expand

    Laughably bad. There were some parts that were just unintentionally hilarious. They try to have some sense of plot but the acting and script Laughably bad. There were some parts that were just unintentionally hilarious. They try to have some sense of plot but the acting and script is so bad that its unwatchable without a sense of humor. One of my favorite parts was when a character addressed another character named Han by saying "Hey Han" and sure enough subtitles showed up saying "Hey Han". The action is OK, but even the drifting gets boring after a while. A last minute cameo by a star of the original does nothing to save this ridiculously horrible film. Expand

    A strange departure from the previous F & F films and the subsequent F & F films in that it didn't feature Vin Diesel or Paul Walker orA strange departure from the previous F & F films and the subsequent F & F films in that it didn't feature Vin Diesel or Paul Walker or Michelle Rodriguez. In other words it was kind of a dud. It was also a step down from the other F & F films in terms of the story line surrounded a High School senior who liked to street race. The other F & F films are about adults who are part of the street racing world as a way of life-not folk trying to balance their relationship with their parents & school & street racing. It just isn't the same thing. There was an element of the adult world in the presence of a Yakuza gangster in Tokyo Drift but it wasn't comparable to anything else in the rest of the F & F franchise. As a stand alone project it is also hit miss-claiming that drift driving originated in Japan-when rally racers in Europe had been doing it long before DVD's ever existed. So, what can I say that good about it-its a good portrayal of spoiled western teens living in Tokyo with possessions that include custom cars. There isn't much good I can say about basically because it basically isn't a good movie. Expand

    Just like the last 2 movies, this movie has no plot and unless you are 16, it cannot be enjoyed!
