Story


"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" is written by Chris Morgan ("Cellular"), who places the third entry in Tokyo: in this adrenalized new story, set in the sexy, underground world of Japanese drift racing, the newest and fastest customized rides go head-to-head on some of the most perilous courses ever seen.

"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" follows the story of Shaun Boswell, who has always been an outsider. A loner at school, his only connection to the indifferent world around him is through illegal street racing -- which has made him particularly unpopular with the local authorities. To avoid jail time, Shaun is sent out of the country to live with his uncle in the military, in a cramped apartment in a low-rent section of Tokyo.

In the land that gave birth to the majority of modified racers on the road, the simple street race has been replaced by the ultimate pedal-to-the-metal, gravity-defying automotive challenge ... drift racing, a deadly combination of brutal speed on heart stopping courses of hairpin turns and switchbacks.

For his first unsuccessful foray in drift racing, Shaun unknowingly takes on D.K., the "Drift King," with ties to the Yakuza, the Japanese crime machine. The only way he can pay off the debt of his loss is to venture into the deadly realm of the Tokyo underworld, where the stakes are life and death.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The only thing that was good were the car racing screens..”
by Paul Perkins [The King's Room]
“..not as sharp and savvy as the first film nor, on the other hand, is this one running on empty as the second film did..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [The Hollywood Reporter]
“..has too much plot for its own good, and not a scintilla of that plot is original, interesting, or surprising..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
