User Review

The Cars do the talking.

Rating:


The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift Directed by Justin Lin Starring:
Mitsubishi Evo 9, Nissan Silva, Ford Mustang, RX 7, Toyota Chaser,
Lucas Black, Bow Wow, Nathalie Kelly, Sung Kang, Sonny Chiba

I think the Mitsubishi should get a best actor nomination for next
year's Oscars.

Nice cars. Nice music. Nice bodies. Nice cityscape.

Brainless story. But that's what I watched it for, to have my brains
parked outside the cinema and let the brainlessness drive me through a
two hour entertainment.

The RX7 has more expression than all the actors.

C – Because it served its purpose in entertaining me with awesome
drifts, over-sized exhaust pipes, and kick butt photography for a car
racing film.
