After Sean Boswell (Black) is busted yet again for illegal street racing, The Fast And The Furious young man is shipped off to Tokyo to live with his father (Goodman). Being told to behave himself, go to school, and stay away from cars, he soon connects with another foreigner Twinkie (Bow Wow), who loves cars almost as much as Sean does. And it isn't long before Sean is once again behind the wheel doing what he does best. Catch my Drift? (Tricia Spears)

Special features include U-Control in Picture In Picture, Storyboards, Blueprints Of Auto Assembly And Tech Specs, GPS, and Production Photographs. Additionally, an optional commentary with Director Justin Lin, a pretty basic chose the wheels and color for your drifter, 11 deleted scenes with optional director commentary, an eight-minute drifting school lesson, a four-minute segment in which cast memebers are doing the filming, eight minutes on the film's most pivotal race scene, 10 minutes looking at the tricked-out drifters, a six-minute intro to drifting, four minutes of getting to know the Drift King, ten minutes of mapping out Japan, and the Don Omar "Conteo" music video.

The VC-1-encoded 2.35:1 HD DVD picture looks good, with impressive detail and well-balanced colors. Fleshtones, however, can trend slightly towards red. Shadow delineation and contrast are lavish, creating an impressive dimensionality. (Danny Richelieu)

The Dolby® Digital Plus 5.1-channel soundtrack can be fully engaging, and even in scenes that completely bombard the listening space, dialogue and low-level effects are easy to pick out of the din. (Danny Richelieu)
