Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) learns how to drift in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”

What happens when you leave two of the best characters, Brian O’Connor and Dom Toretto, out of a Fast and Furious movie? You don’t get any good results.

Not only is The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift the worst movie in the franchise, it’s also one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. After getting into a car accident during an illegal street racing, Sean Boswell (Lucas Black, who cannot act for crap) has two choices: go to prison or start a new life in Tokyo to live with his dad. He obviously chooses the latter. Boswell meets new people, and learns how to drift in the undergrounds of the biggest Japanese city. This movie throws away what made the first two a fun ride and gives us a slow, long ride into atrocity with a flat story, acting, dialogue. If Vin Diesel didn’t make a cameo appearance in the end of the movie, there wouldn’t be any redeemable qualities whatsoever.

  1. This sounds beyond dire. With films like this as a foundation – how the hell did this series become the behemoth franchise it now is!? It’s a crazy world. Good review, by the way.
