"The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift"

The original "The Fast and the Furious" made the careers of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The makers of the third instalment pretty much concede the cars are the real stars with this continuation that features an all-new and younger cast hitting the streets of Japan.

Lucas Black stars as a trouble-making American hot rodder transplanted to Tokyo, where he pals up with a street-wise hustler (Bow Wow) and ends up in a reckless high-speed showdown against a mob-connected local. The DVD has deleted scenes, commentary from director Justin Lin and featurettes that include looks at the actors in driving school, the art of "drift" racing and how the cars were customized.
