In the vending machine cafeteria scene (at around 59 mins) Sean and Neela use chopsticks to eat "meat spaghetti", according to the katakana (the Japanese phonetic alphabet) on the side of the box. See more »
When Sean is walking past the cars before speaking with Neela in the parking garage, a golden Toyota Supra is behind him, on his right.

For the Japanese version the scene with the final race is altered. The Yakuza member starting the final race is shown to be having all his fingers instead of missing four. See more »
Decent, Hardly any substance, But Sometime to watch :D
What can I say about this movie that many haven't already noted? Well first of all I saw this movie twice, and probably shouldn't have. The cinematography was phenomenal and the racing sequences were jaw dropping. Unfortunately, this movie lacks substance. The storyline was really iffy and probably not likely to happen and the acting was a little shaky.
But thats not the reason why everyone goes to watch this movie. We all go to see the cars and the girls which fortunately delivers. Beautiful cars, beautiful ladies and beautiful scenery and destructive driving is never in short supply in this genre and the scenery of Japan is just breathtaking. All in all, just a movie you'll want to see with the boys.
