Consensus: Eye-popping driving sequences coupled with a limp story and flat performances make this Drift an adequate follow-up to the previous Fast and Furious installments. Strictly for the racing crowd and fans of the first two films.

Look out for a star cameo -- it's the only surprise you'll get from this heap.

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?

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

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.

The racing sequences are the series' meat and potatoes, but in terms of story, Tokyo Drift barely offers a stalk of asparagus.

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.

Lessons of Darkness

A perfunctory and unintentionally goofy attempt to keep the series running without its stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.

True, it tries to be tongue-in-cheek, but really it's just cheek.

The whole thing is preposterous. The acting is so awful, some of the worst performances I've seen in a long, long time.

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.

I thought this was the worst. Only the stunts might be entertaining to watch but the whole movie was crap. Vin Diesel was like a treat in the end. And Brian,… More
