A Film Review By Paul Perkins
Nothing Like The First Film
One film this year I did not want to see because
every time I go to AMC theater I seen the commercial for this film
and it drive me nuts. The film is called The Fast and the Furious
Tokyo Drift which technology is the third one in the series. The
first question I have to say before I say my review is why, why
sometimes they need to stop making so many sequels?
Although street racing provides an escape from an unhappy home and
the superficial world around him, for outsider Sean Boswell (Lucas
Black), his reckless involvement in the sport has made him very
unpopular with the local authorities. After one crash too many --
and to avoid jail time -- Sean is sent to live with his gruff,
estranged father, a career military man stationed in Tokyo. Now
officially a gaijin (outsider), Sean feels even more shut out in a
land of foreign customs and codes of honor.
So walking into this film I did not have high hopes for this film
and the trailer does not make the film looks good it make it just a
racing film with no good story. So after seeing the film I have to
say the story was not that good kind of a typical story. The only
thing that was good were the car racing screens I like the close up
of the cars and all the drifting scenes and there was plenty of eye
candy to keep the film watchable. All the racing cars in the film
were very cool looking and I would not mind having one of them.
The acting was pretty bad but you don't expect a good story or good
acting for this type of film. This film will do well because
teenager will see this film and everyone who into racing will also.
Overall The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift will do very well at
the box office if you see this film don't go to see it if you expect
a good story check it out for the racing. I was being nice giving
this film a three star rating only because of the racing. If I judge
this film on the story it would get a 2 1/2 star rating.
