With Fast 9 just opening in cinemas, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to revisit this unofficial entry in the Fast & Furious franchise. In BETTER LUCK TOMORROW, Justin Lin’s debut feature, a group of Asian American high schoolers, sparked by boredom, are drawn into increasingly dangerous criminal activities. What’s the connection to Fast 9 you might ask? Sung Kang’s character Han, one of the juvenile gang in BLT appears in the third Fast & Furious film, Tokyo Drift (also directed by Lin), and is set to make a mysterious return in the new film.
