I've never read the manga or watched the anime but I still knew a bit about the storyline... I don't think covered much in the movie but it was pretty okay I guess. I though Jay Chou's acting was quite well done. Some of the songs are really nice.. I didn't like the main girl though.. >_>

since i got to watch the anime __ currently waiting for the stage 4-> ep 19th to be available for downloading... (and a big fan of the anime), so when i watched this movie, i was pretty disappointed.. but nevertheless it's still entertaining to watch.... coz im impressed with anthony wong and chapman to's acting :)

jay is still the diao... **wink**

the racing scenes are still good....

but they sure did alter a lot of settings from the anime.... :(

guess, this would have been a good movie if you havent watched the anime... hehehe...

awesome movie, but i don't really like the art of the anime/manga.

directors did a great job, but it was expected since Internal Affairs was just as good.

Post #81.

I d/l'ed and watched it when it first came out. :lol:

I watched it with my boyfriend because he loves cars (and he's seen some of the Initial D anime series), while I liked the cast, haha.

The movie was alright, but not great.

Jay's acting skills I found to be a bit bland.

But the races were awesome!

I thought that this movie was just ok...the racing scenes were really cool but that's basically it for me. Jay's performance was ok...but his role didn't really have much room for great acting.

This movie sux. The only thing I like about it is the fact that they managed to get 3 hot guys in it. The storyline was kinda cheesy and I hate how they went away from the anime and sort of made their story. Ryosuke and Takeshi were NOT friends and did not hang out and drank pepsi together. Bunta did NOT abuse Takumi. And one thing I really hate is that they did not have Keisuke, Ryosuke's younger brother. He is like also one of the MOST important characters in the anime!

Just my opinion. No hurt I hope. Blah. This movie was kinda disappointing to me cuz I'm a fan of the anime.
