The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
replaces Actor Paul Walker with Actor Lucas Black, moves the action to Tokyo, and uses the talents of Director Justin Lin to introduce us to ‘drifting,’ a type of racing popular in Japan. The storyline revolves around rebellious American teen-ager, Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), whose Mother sends him to Tokyo to live with his dad, U.S. Navy officer, Major Boswell (Brian Goodman), to keep him out of trouble with United States law officials. The ‘family’ working to get their son on a better course in life wasn’t quite what I expected out of a Fast and Furious movie; but, the racing was pretty good and the scenes revolving around Tokyo culture made a unique story worth watching.
