Graveyard 'Drift'

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This piece of junk is so bad that even Paul Walker turned it down. A redneck military brat (Lucas Black) gets into so much trouble racing smirking bullies that he is sent to Tokyo to live with his father. He immediately hooks up with more smirking bullies, only this time he must learn "drifting," i.e. sliding sideways on all four tires. Of course, he shows the Japanese experts how it's done. It's not clear who comes out worse here, the Japanese, women in general, or the "funny" African-American sidekick (Bow Wow) that befriends our terminally uninteresting hero. Justin Lin directs (on the heels of the equally bad Annapolis) hammering and twisting his mangled footage for maximum noise and jumbled assault. Sonny Chiba was somehow persuaded to play a yakuza.
