Remember when Lost in Translation got all that critical acclaim, but there were still naysayers who pointed out that nothing much actually happens in it? If it had had more fast cars and no capable acting whatsoever, it would be this movie. Juvenile-delinquent Sean (played by the obviously twentysomething Lucas Black) flees America to move in with his father in Tokyo under the strict conditions that he must come straight home from school and never get in a car. Fortunately, Dad's a moron who notices nothing. Sean immediately gets hooked in an underworld of "drift" racing, which involves lots of high-speed braking and turning. He's terrible at it, and to make matters worse, he instantly hits it off with the girlfriend of a yakuza boss' nephew (Brian Tee). Tokyo Drift feels like one of those lousy direct-to-video sequels that hopes to trick you out of your rental money and deliver none of the elements you liked about the previous movies. Never will Paul Walker be more missed.
