One review

  • This is one of the weakest ones out of the sequence. It certainly kept my interest for the most part, and it never truly bored me, but it just didn’t generate nearly enough excitement for me. The cars are stylish and beautiful to look at as per usual, but all the machismo and the cool attitude faded away quickly for me. The movie has pretty much nothing to do with the previous movies, its set in Tokyo and the cast is completely different, and their all very uninspired performances, the only thing that gave me a bit of relief was Vin Diesel’s brief cameo. Also, the story wasn’t that good, I even didn’t quite understand the point of the drift racing. Super-fans of the franchise will probably want to take a look. Every one else can probably skip it.
