Initial D

General info
Original title: Tau Man Ji D (頭文字D)
Country: China, Hong Kong
Year: 2005
IMDB Rating: 6.3 3286 votes
Plot: It's a story about the fastest street racer of Mt Akina. Takumi, a delivery boy; Ryousuke, an engineer of speed and Kyouichi, a professional racer: the three of them become duelists of drifts.

For five years, 18-year-old Takumi has been delivering tofu in his father's obsolescent Toyota AE86 every morning. Not only has he become a good racer, but he has also unwittingly perfected the art of drifting. He was never an aficionado of hill racing until he is asked by his father to drive his AE86 in a David and Goliath race against Night Kids' EVO IV. A glorious but unexpected victory awakens the competitive genes in his blood, while his overnight fame inevitably leads to hellraising races one after another, each one more perilous and exciting than the previous one. Starring Asia's hottest heartthrobs, Jay Chou and Edison Chen, Initial D is adapted from one of the most popular eponymous manga and anime series in Japan. This is the first live-action feature based on the series to ever grace the silver screen in the world.

Featured reviews for

Initial D
Kazaren source: http://www.karazen.com/reviews/movies/initiald.php
« Although out of the market 16 years ago, Toyota AE86 has become ever so popular in the used car market in Japan these days, thanks to the immense success of the manga and anime series Initial D.»
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/initial_d.htm
«It meets expectations...provided yours aren't screamingly high. Initial D is a solid, entertaining, though unspectacular manga adaptation. Still, fans should go home happy, and this is certainly one impressive production. »
Qwipster's Movie Reviews, by Vince Leo source: http://www.qwipster.net/initiald.htm
«Like the sport itself, Initial D all about mechanics and aesthetics, while anything resembling a heart and soul are kicked to the curb.»
Channel 4 Film, by Saxon Bullock source: http://www.channel4.com/film/reviews/film.jsp?id=155265&page=1
«Initial D: Drift Racer looks good and handles like a dream during the action scenes - but there's very little going on under the bonnet.»
Daily Info, by Glenn Watson source: http://www.dailyinfo.co.uk/reviews/feature/962/The_Initial_D_aka_Tau_man_ji_D_/
«Initial D is full of classy motoring and spot-on performances, but the star’s not the car nor the characters – it’s Andrew Lau’s scintillating direction.»
