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.
