The dialogue was cheesy as hell too (remember the "I'm free" line from the first one?This is worse - the moonlight drifting scene is embarrassingly bad).Strictly for the racing crowd and fans of the first two films.I'm getting the feeling that the majority of reviews here as of June 14th are bogus.Yeah, this is the one of those film series people will hate before seeing.It's over the top, has cheesy dialogue, and has an unlikeable protagonist.He's moved from town to town with his divorced mother, and getting into problems with the law, before finding himself in Southern California.
DK is a nickname for "Drift King." Sean quickly realizes this as he loses badly to him in his first race in Japan (and smashing up Han's S15 badly).
Unlike other particular American films, the culture of Japan was portrayed in a positive light.
This was particularly refreshing, as the food jokes, Engrish jokes, height jokes, etc. Sean meets Twinkie (Lil Bow Wow), and Han (Sung Kang), the latter of which appears to be the same character from Better Luck Tomorrow.
With that said, it's actually pretty entertaining, and isn't all that bad.
We are introduced to Sean Boswell (Lucas Black), a high school kid who can't seem to find his niche in life.
