FAST AND FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT Gets a Drive-By Mocking from Honest Trailers

FAST AND FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT Gets a Drive-By Mocking from Honest Trailers

As the black sheep of the Fast & Furious franchise, Tokyo Drift gets a lot of flak from the haters. And yeah, I’ll admit, it’s confusing. Who are all these character who aren’t Dominic Toretto or Paul Walker? How the heck does this movie from 2006 take place between Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7? Don’t worry. Honest Trailers is here to bring up all these questions you’ve been wondering and more in their latest YouTube video:

Listen, Honest Trailer: I am with you in spirit. Everything you point out about The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, from the lack of established characters to the strange time-disjointed setting to Lucas Black’s severe lack of personality, are all completely true and accurate assessments of the film. But I, a certified Tokyo Drift apologist, have to point out that it’s a dorky anime high school mob story, and honestly what is not to love about that?

This movie’s got everything! Justin Lin! A car with Hulk hands coming out of the side! A bit performance by the actress who played Sailor Mars in the live-action Japanese Sailor Moon adaptation! (Yes, that is completely true and I am a huge nerd for noticing, thank you.) Legitimately cool car-drifting stunts!

In fact, I put it to you, good readers of Nerdist, that despite bringing the franchise back on track and establishing much of what becomes the status quo in later movies, Fast & Furious (that’s the fourth one) is actually the least entertaining film to re-watch. Do you agree, or has Honest Trailers got you on the drift-hating bandwagon? Let us know in the comments below!
