More Info:
  • Michael Sragow

    The opening half-hour may prove to be a disreputable classic of pedal-to-the-metal filmmaking.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Lin takes an established franchise and makes it surprisingly fresh and intriguing. The movie is not exactly "Shogun" when it comes to the subject of an American in Japan (nor, on the other hand, is it "Lost in Translation"). But it's more observant than we expect, and uses its Japanese locations to make the story about something more than fast cars.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    It's not much of a movie, but a hell of a ride. So what if the movie dumbs down Japanese culture to a bad yakuza movie and features Japanese characters who can barely speak Japanese? The cars are the stars here. Everything else is lost in translation.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Manna from gearhead heaven, the third and most guiltily pleasurable Furious emits the crude thrills of a 1950s drag-racing cheapie, only with souped-up Toyotas and Nissans in place of gas-guzzling hot rods, and slinky Asian temptresses substituted for poodle-skirted teenyboppers.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Pumping high-performance gas back into the series after a second lap sputter, third entry stays in high gear most of the way with several exhilarating racing sequences, and benefits greatly from the evocative Japanese setting.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Despite all the silliness the drift races are gripping, and director Justin Lin captures Tokyo's energy and glitter far better than Sofia Coppola.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    As idiot car-crash movies go, "Tokyo Drift" is pretty fun, and certainly a more-than-decent entry in this franchise.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    For all its crashes and flash, this is a movie that drifts away as we watch it. Muscle cars and all, it's often a waste of gas.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The kind of movie in which plot and performances (and members of the fairer sex) are treated as accessories, "Tokyo Drift" is all about the action. And on that count, it won't let you down.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    The movie teaches us that you can flip your car down a mountain 15 times and walk away from it with two Tylenol.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The F&F series is the 21st century's beach movie, one for some beachless future world where the kids are crowning 25 and seem capable of living off of hair gel and exhaust fumes.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ethan Alter

    The problems with Tokyo Drift start with its ostensible hero; during the course of this movie, Sean makes so many dumb decisions it's a wonder that anyone wants to be associated with him.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Jason Anderson

    The director also makes a nod to Japan's rich history of genre filmmaking by casting action legend J. J. Sonny Chiba as a cigar-smoking yakuza. Chiba's presence momentarily classes up a passable youths-ploitation flick into a transcendent piece of movie trash.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    At least Lin's local color make the idiocy fun to watch.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    This third installment of the popular series about fast cars and the posturing boys who love them is best viewed as an energetic cartoon, an unintentionally amusing, head-shaking guilty pleasure that will divert those not in the mood for anything more profound than gleaming metal and preening women.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nathan Lee

    As in the previous two installments of the Fast and Furious franchise, this largely consists of macho tantrums, vying for the girl, intense vehicular mayhem and high-octane homoeroticism.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Teresa Wiltz

    A masterpiece of mediocrity,

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

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

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Felix Vasques Jr.

    It’s a weak sequel, to a weak series.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Brian Clark

    Racing junkies would be better off browsing the myriad of online drifting videos where the camera doesn't cut and the people don't speak.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The problem with contemporary Hollywood isn't that so many of the movies it's churning out are based on formula; it's that so many directors take perfectly good formulas and wreck them with bad filmmaking. Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    OK, they squeezed one more lap out of this franchise. It's been a fun ride, but it's time to shut things down. If you get my drift.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    To call the film noisy and brainless isn't even a criticism - it's unadulterated auto-porn, as shallow and shiny as it wants to be.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Has plenty of fast cars and revving engines. But unless you're a fan of that sort of thing, its stultifying plot and wooden acting is likely to make you drift - off to sleep.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Gregory Kirschling

    Gets lost in translation.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Like 2 Fast 2 Furious before it, 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.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The F&F franchise ran out of gas half way into the 2001 original.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Like its predecessors, Tokyo Drift suffers from a terminal lack of levity.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Lucas Black, who looks as much like a high school kid as George Bernard Shaw, speaks in a thick Southern accent that hasn't been heard on any leading man since the second act of "Our American Cousin."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    By all that's unholy, this third edition of the high-emission franchise should have been at least as awful as the second one was. (The first one was good fun.) Yet it's surprisingly entertaining in its deafening fashion, despite the absence of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, the co-stars of parts one and two.
