The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift review

After the disappointment of 2 Fast Too Furious, the franchise spins off to the neon-lit futurism of Tokyo looking for a fresh lick of paint. Sent to the land of the rising sun to live with his estranged Dad, racing nut Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) discovers both Japan’s drift-racing culture and seductive sexpot Neela (Nathalie Kelley) – girlfriend of Yakuza-connected champ DK (Brian Tee). So Vanishing Point by way of Lost In Translation? Um, not really. The continent shift provides little more than window dressing, with the under-revved storyline – gangster scraps settled by races? Pah! – boosted by smart action as cars skid about car parks and mountain passes. It’s all still loose breakin’ cars and looser lovin’ women; for petrol-headed single teens only, eager for (surely) the last bit of mileage to be milked from the concept.
