Unfortunately, the lousy script isn't just a minor problem - it single-handedly destroys the experience. The dialogue is hilariously awful at times, and even though Lin does the best with what he has, it's just not enough. Every time the film slowed down enough to even make an attempt at some sort of actual depth and emotion, all I could do was groan. It also didn't help matters that Lucas Black, who despite doing a decent job of being likable, is forced to play a pathetically dull leading man (with a dorky-sounding accent... sorry southerners).
You pretty much know what you're getting into as soon as you hear the film's title - THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT. That tells you all you need to know. The movie is fast and furious (meaning lots of action, minimal story), and includes both Japan as a backdrop and the driving style referred to as "drifting". If you can't decide whether you want to see the flick from those factors alone, then you probably don't.
Audio Commentary (with director Justin Lin): An engaging and informative track in which Lin discusses the driving sequences, casting the film, information regarding the locations, his connections from this film to his past work, and plenty more. If you dug the film, then this is certainly worth a listen.
Deleted Scenes (with optional commentary by director Justin Lin): There are 11 of them, some of which are surprisingly not bad. I don't think any of them would've greatly improved the film, but considering the lack of good character development present, some of these sequences might've been beneficial.
Drifting School (7:38): While it was cool to see some of the behind-the-scenes footage of the actors learning and practicing drifting, nothing here really goes into detail about anything other than just saying how cool it was.
Cast Cam (4:23): This is meant more to be entertaining than education, and it is. It's basically just a montage of random clips with some music here and there. It's worth checking out to see the on-set footage.
The Big Breakdown: Han's Last Ride (8:29): This featurette actually educate a little, showing how they transformed a part of L.A. to look like Tokyo so they could film the main car chase. It also shows some great behind-the-scenes stuff on the stunt-work. Pretty cool.
Tricked Out To Drift (11:03): This is more for automobile enthusiasts, giving some insight on what the crew did to make the cars as cool as possible.
The Real Drift King (3:41): This featurette is all about Keiichi Tsuchiya, who was used for some of the drifting sequences. I didn't like that they had his audio dubbed over for the English translation, but there's still enough things of interest discussed here to make it worthwhile.
The Japanese Way (9:48): I liked watching this mainly for the footage of Japan, since the actual featurette is not really about anything other than the cast/crew going over what it was like to make a Hollywood film in Tokyo.
Also included is a Music Video titled "Conteo", by Don Omar.
If you enjoyed the previous two films for the dumb, action-packed fun that they were, then this third installment is a worthy rental.
