The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

(USA/Germany, 2006, 105 minutes)

A street-racing teenager who keeps getting into trouble is shipped off to live with his military father in Tokyo, but falls under the spell of “drift” racing and gets unwittingly involved with a shady gang of racers. Disposable but enjoyable exploitation actioner whose no-nonsense focus on fast cars and teenage thrills successfully reignites a franchise a laboured first sequel had pretty much left for dead. Technical credits as pro as they come.
