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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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." show more

    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. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    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. show more

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