TOKYO DRIFT is the THIRD INSTALLMENT of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS FRANCHISE and definitely is by far the BEST INSTALLMENT in this context! The EYE CATCHING racing sequences and GLITZY GLAMOROUS SIGHTS in the MOVIE make it worth watching with a slightly UNEXPECTED EMOTIONAL TOUCH!
LUCAS BLACK is shown to be brat boy who is sent to TOKYO for his nonsense attitude to his Dad living there where he finds another way to RACE CARS i.e. in the FAMOUS LARGE PARKING of TOKYO! This is the place where he meets Li Bow Wow as "Haan" who introduces him to the under racing world of DRIFTING and this is where it all begins!
The MOVIE heavily relies on DRIFTING as the name suggests! The DRIFTING SEQUENCES in the PARKING LOT were just amazing and really left my MOUTH WIDE OPEN with EYES UNFLASHED! I have never seen such precise drifting with utmost reality not to be denied! Another scene when CARS go pass through the crowded area of TOKYO is a breathtaking scene no doubt! The CLIMAX RACE is also worth watching in the DARK on the roads of the mountains!
Li Bow Wow for me was the surprise package of the MOVIE. He was shown as a not too much speaking character but his styles were too good that he surpassed Lucas Black!
The MUSIC of the MOVIE is just awesome! I remember, Tokyo Drift theme became the ANTHEM of CARS with its introduction and is still considered to be one of the best FAST CAR SONG!
Just as we come to a conclusion that this FILM is not related with it's previous entries, in the very end, a huge surprise of VIN DIESEL connects the stories to the previous ones and all questions are answered!
In short, TOKYO DRIFT is best INSTALLMENT in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS FRANCHISE and is worth watching for the most MODERNIZED RACING TECHNIQUES!
