Initial D (HK 2005)

Director : Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Alan Mak Siu Fai
Cast : Jay Chou, Anne Suzuki, Edison Chan, Jordan Chan,
Anthony Wong, Shawn Yue, Kenny Bee, Chapman To

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.

Quick View
Based on the popular Initial D anime, here comes the live-real-action Initial D movie. Directed by the award-winning directors (Infernal Affairs), Andrew Lau and Alan Mak. Star-studded with young talented actors/actresses, Initial D is arguably one of the best movies in 2005! It may not be an Initial D fan’s favorite movie because some elements has be altered. For example, the missing character of Keisuke Takahashi and the changes on Itsuki’s character. Besides this, some Initial D’s fans thinks the movie is kinda rush because it contains scenes from the anime Stage 1 to 3. From the ending, we know that it may have a sequel to this movie. But overall, i think its an enjoyable movie for all Asian movie fans and Initial D fans.
