Movie Review: The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift

My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift” at GH Cinema Ocean Terminal, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Wow…. Awesome!!

This movie definitely did not fall into the sequel trap. Being the third rendition of The Fast and The Furious series: “The Fast and The Furious” and “2 Fast 2 Furious“, it came through with original scenes, special effects, story and most definitely driving.

I may be a bit bias, being one who love drifting for some time.

Anyone who had not seen drifting this movie will definitely show you what that is all about. All the drift shots were done by real professional Japanese drifters. Even the cast were given a 2 hours introduction to drifting so that they understand and get a feel of what the “sport” is all about.

There were many amazing shots, thanks to the professional drifters and stunt drivers. Being able to pull it off in the streets of Tokyo; a movie production hostile city, made it that much more incredible.

Last year there was a movie, Initial-D about Japanese drifters based on a Japanese cartoon, made by a Hong Kong production company, but this time Hollywood really showed the Chinese production company what Hollywood could do with a similar story.

I strongly recommend this movie to all those who loves driving particularly drifting.

All I can say is that, fortunately I do not have a car in Hong Kong at the moment or drove to see the movie…
