Tokyo Drift

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Car,Subj:Culture — Jemyoung Leigh @ 9:30

I saw the film of the Fast and Furious – Tokyo Drift this morning. Well, I don’t require for well made plot or story from this kind of movies. And of course, it does not have.

All the series of the Fast and the Furious could and should be called advertisement of Japanese cars. First(the fast and the furious) and second(2 fast 2 furious) films showed us American Muscles but in this film, I cannot see running American Muscle.

Strictly speaking, this film is the best in the aspect of driving fun. I felt like that I was watching the movie edition of Initial D. Running down the narrow mountain ways with hair pin curves is the key factor and the only factor why we see the animation. The last racing is just like that in Initial D, and the city driving scene is like that of Driven.

What I like most in this movie is the ending scene. Vin Diesel shows himself. What I hate most in this movie is that the girl Neela is not pretty at all. I though she is Michael Jackson. I say that every movie maker must cast a pretty girl for major actress. It is not an option.

I am a bit proud of Sung Kang who played Han. He is Korean American actor.

Let me say one thing. Drift and Counter steering are different. Well, Counter steering must be based on drift but they are not same. Drifting is slipping the rear wheels and Counter Steering is to steer to the reverse when drifting. For an instance, steering left when you want to go right is counter steering. In drift, counter steering and slip turn is included. Using parking break is low level drift, and using the weight balance is high level drift.




  1. NEELA is healla fine

  5. Vin Diesel is driving a 1965 Impala that is lowered and chopped in the true fast and furious american muscle style.
