Potted Film Review: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

Tokyo Drift is the third film in the Fast and the Furious franchise, and while it is decidedly a step up from the catastrophe that was the second entry, it still falls a little short of where it needs to be.

The action is moved to Japan (big surprise there, right?) and the cast is shaken up as well. There’s nobody in this one from the first two episodes… well, except for a cameo at the end from Vin Diesel.

The first half of this is decent enough, with some impressive stunt work – and for the majority of the time Lucas Black (complete with his Texan drawl) is an acceptable protagonist – but the story loses me in the back end and just fails to leave me with enough positive vibes to recommend it.
