Third movie in the the fast and the furious series and this one is nothing.

I consider it slightly better than the first two, only for the fact that I did kind-of enjoy the racing scenes. Mindless, but not boring per say.

This movie was exactly what I thought it would be fast cars and adrenaline. I enjoyed the racing and you can;t help but feel your adrenaline flowing in the final race even though you know the out come from the start of the movie. There is very little that is original in this movie but why mess with what works. Although it was no where as fun as the original it still turned out to be a fun time. If you have nothing to do on a weekend and this is on TV I would recommend watching it.

Style over substance exemplified. Locations and cars were plush, if only the characters were more interesting. Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) is moved to Tokyo and meets the business minded Twinkie (Bow Wow). They run into D.K. whose uncle is a Yakuza. If only there was more story with the Yakuza uncle and improved characters. Anther reason that this film was average was the lack of cast from the original. Better than the 2nd film of the franchise, plot-wise not as good as the original. Better direction, upbeat soundtrack though the acting especially the lead was awful. Some of the racing sequences were overdone which drags the film. Nice cameo at the end though, but even that cant make The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift engaging enough.

"Sean Boswell" (Lucas Black) is a troubled teen with a long record that consist of numerous tickets -- one of which he admits getting the day he got his license.
After another arrest following a drag race with a high school football player (Zachery Ty Bryant) over the football player's pretty girlfriend (Nikki Grifin) where "Boswell" wrecks his car, his mother (Lynda Boyd) ships him off to his father (Brian Goodman), a United States Marine who lives in Tokyo, Japan.
He is instantly a fish out of water, but instantly bonds with Army Brat "Twinkee" (rapper Bow Wow). He also meets an absolutely beautiful classmate named "Neela" (the beautiful Nathalie Kelley), who is checking him out when he finally arrives to class after getting on the wrong train.
