Gets Better with years.
9 September 2018 | by yepp-922-27352See all my reviews

As a child, i do remember, seeing my friends and spending the whole afternoon watching this film. Everytime. I'm in love with the franchise, but especially, i'm in love with Tokyo Drift.

First of all, the soundtrack. One, simple word. Amazing. From the first scene to the last. Still singing "My Life be Like Ooh Aaah" one decade after. The "Barracuda" song, also. The one that spells the word "Barracuda". Awesome. And of course the song in the parking lot, "Fast And Furious". The famous one.

Then, the characters. Characters are well written. Of course they are full of clichès. It must be. It's a fast and furious one. Nathalie Kelly looks like a dream. Lucas Black is also a great main character. Bow Wow, he makes me laugh. And Sung Kang, the one playing Han, he's the real hero. So cool. James Dean of the franchise. You can easily fall in love with every character. Even the bad guys are cool.

And, last but not least. The Cars. Changing to one driving style to another. To let the franchise fresh. Good choice. But then. Cars are so hot in this movie. From first till last race. I'm in love with drift cars. With the red Lancer, the Slylines and of course with Han's RX7. Amazing.

If own a car, or a motorbike, and you love it. Well that's the movie for you. Definitely. I'm huge a fan. So this is gonna be a huge 8. Please, do not kill the franchise, ever.
