the initial d live action movie was just bad :cussing: , if you have even watched the anime it didn't even follow the story line. I'm a really big fan of the initial d series but this one just disappointed me and another thing is it was a Chinese movie and not a Japanese one, the only person who was Japanese was the person who played Natsuki Mogi.
but it is and ok movie, I understand that it is a movie and the whole series can't be summed up in a movie so I'd give it a 6 out of 10

I remenber last year when the trailer was came out, My roommate when crazy about it. I was a Inital D fan back in 2000, And he just started watching it just last year '04.. His line was "this is one movie that i have to watch, that is on his TO DO LIST b4 he dies". he was braging to everybody that there was movie that was coming. out(even if they were anime/JDrama fans or not) ...But onces he saw it over the summer, he kinda shutup a little which was good.

I haven't watched yet, But i still don't have to guts to, just because everything i see a Drama/ Movie that base off from something before (e.g. anime) The story that just kills me. it makes the anime sucks more.. EVEN in Stage 4 sucks, (i love Stage 1, 2, 3) i thought Inital was dying already..!(The battle scenes are Great with CG. but i hated beacuse everything about Inital D 4. was like they where trying to teach the viewer how it works, Look at the battle scenes, there gotta have a comment from the RX7 brother about how the event is going to go.involeing techiques yada yada yada(boring)!!. How i got Hook on was from the orginal Storyline, a kid who drives a 20 years old car and still beats everybody and people from all over Japan wants to battle him.

There was a huge difference from GTO -anime and GTO - JDorama.
Anime had nore funnie jokes and scene while the Live action has more of a Life altering settings(w/funnie of course)

My brother just brought it the other day, but i knoe that Inital D live Action wouldn't be as good as the anime already. I might watch it when I'm really bore!!!!!!!, i mean REALLY BORED!!

I've watched the Initial D anime, and I thought it was really good.
I don't think that the movie would be as good as the anime because it's one movie and can't have everything that the anime has. In and of itself, I thought the movie is okay. I liked the mood and setting, but some of the character changes were a little off. It could have been better, but it's not a total waste. So... maybe a 7 out of 10.

i'm a big fan of the anmie too, but i cant say i was that impressed by the movie.

the actual car races are fine, but the story has ben messed around with far too much to get it into a movie. they just tried to do too much, and it really shows.
+ no keisuke and the FD :(
it could/should have been amazing, but unfortunately i think its pretty average.

I don't really think so but I would love if they had one. Critics said that the movie was sorta bad and everything but since the makers got $$$$ they should continue it and finish the story since they just left off where Stage 4 was about to start. So it would be good if they continued it.

I loved watching this movie. This was my first time watching a kind of racing movie. And after watching it I fell in love with it.

About the sequel, I dont know if there is gonna be one, but I heard that they were gonna make an Intial D with girls as the main stars this time.

the anime is great, but the movie just plain sucked. the only good thing to watch in the movie was the races, otherwise, the plotline and everything was BAD. the anime is dying off, i didn't feel the 4th stage was that great. the previous stages were much better. edison and jay were okay in the movie, but like i said, the only fun part is watching the races, not when they're talking or anything else.

When I first heard about Initial D (the real live movie) I was pretty excited.
I've watched the anime and loved it.

Unfortunately, when I finally watched the movie, I was totally disappointed. I think the only thing that resembled the anime was that Tak won races. Other than that, seemed like it was a completely different story.

I would have rated it 8 or 9 out of 10 after watching the previews and not watching the movie, but since i've seen the movie, I have to rate it a 5/10 :glare:

Maybe biased because I'm a big fan of Jay Chou, but I really did like the movie. Well I've never watched the animes either so I was only comparing the movie with other racing movies (ah hem Fast and the Furious) and I thought it was a lot better than those. Jay Chou's acting was alright, and the story is well paced except for ending (yah a little rushed). I think there was just more character developments than fast and the furious storylines. Racing scenes were cool too.

overall, I would give this movie 8.5/10 .
