Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Look out for a star cameo -- it's the only surprise you'll get from this heap."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A number of questions spring to mind when considering The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Can the movies possibly get any faster or more furious? What exactly is the Tokyo Drift? And does Al Gore know what we can do to stop it?"
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"A neon-lit western where the steeds are cast in steel and the drifter's gunfight for the town and the girl is fought on four wheels; it's a movie proudly committed to noise, colour and motion.

‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Tediously testosterone-filled"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"it's craptacular"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"The racing sequences are the series' meat and potatoes, but in terms of story, Tokyo Drift barely offers a stalk of asparagus."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Tokyo Drift is a subculture in search of a compelling story line, and Black's leaden performance makes you pine for the days of Paul Walker."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"A perfunctory and unintentionally goofy attempt to keep the series running without its stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"It reaches a level of mediocrity that leaves the previous entries in the dust ...."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"Just remember that the hot rods burning rubber are the real stars of this spectacular, high-octane tribute to testosterone."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"True, it tries to be tongue-in-cheek, but really it's just cheek."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The whole thing is preposterous. The acting is so awful, some of the worst performances I've seen in a long, long time."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is an uninspired, unoriginal entry in what was already an unoriginal franchise. It's fun to look at, but its narcissistic message is unappealing in the extreme."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"...the movie's striking setting and compelling lead performance ensure that it remains a slight cut above its immediate predecessor."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The third entry in the Fast and the Furious franchise burrows culture shock in dishonesty."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
