FROM the producer of blockbuster hits The Fast and the Furious and 2 Fast 2 Furious, comes the latest instalment of the adrenaline-inducing series.The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is still showing at the Odeon, Weston and is set in the sexy and colourful underground world of Japanese drift racing.Shaun Boswell is a loner at school and his only connection to the indifferent world around him is through illegal street racing - which has made him unpopular with the local authorities. To avoid jail time, Shaun is sent out of America to live with his uncle in the military, in a cramped apartment in a low-rent section of Tokyo. In the land that gave birth to the majority of modified racers on the road, the simple street race has been replaced by the ultimate pedal-to-the-metal, gravity-defying automotive challenge of drift racing.An explosive series of events is set into motion, climaxing with an ultimate high stakes face-off.
