    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

    Director: Justin Lin
    Lead actors: Lucas Black, Sung Kang, Bow Wow, Brian Tee, Nathalie Kelley
    Genre:Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller

    Synopsis: A young, easy-go-lucky man Sean Boswell has the passion of drag racing in the neighborhood. He was send to Tokyo by her mom, since she got tired moving from one place to another due to his being troublemaker. Once arrived to Tokyo, he managed to continue his interest in car racing and things turned into a more complicated situation.
    The film had showed the indifference of having the car races; the plot circulated more in Tokyo. It is quite unrealistic for some part of the scene that they can have races within the area of Tokyo, a very busy country. Although the proper cues delivered in actions, the actors race within the territory of Japan.

    It depicts the real scenario of being foreign in an Asian country that includes the culture and language practiced in Tokyo. As Sean Boswell (Lukas Black) portrayed, the language barrier in the school. Though I find it strange, some international school can communicate in English language.

    Living with his biological dad (Brian Goodman), Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) had to make an adjustment period. The last option made by her mother (Linda Boyd). Meeting new friend in school: Twinkie (Bow Wow), love interest Neela (Nathalie Kelly), drifter coach Han (Sung Kan) and an opponent named DK (Brian Tee).

    I am not sure if the scenes are just to promote the beautiful places of the country or rather focus more on car races over opponents. The moviegoers would be delighted to watch the movie as it showcased the flexibility of genre. There is fast phase of the story; it might be confusing for some viewers. Although the director directed the movie scenes with style, the plots showed the action stunts.
