Ben also brings in Virgil and Han into the operation, and the four of them make a small fortune. As far as I know Justin Lin has neither denied or confirmed they are the same character. The film has no ending, it established no clear motives for characters' behavior and the gruesome violence is completely out of sync with the rest of the movie.
While this connection is unofficial, many fans consider it to be canonical.

Han is forced to take the blame for the cheat sheet operation and is suspended, but not before beating up Virgil. Justin Lin used a lot of angles I had never seen before in a film and this was the strongest part of the movie overall. The film is narrated by Ben, a smart kid who is going about his usual run of the mill life.
Her character is strong, on par with the boys in terms of intellect and achievement, but her heart is gold. This movie is about high school kids that are too smart for their own good. All these kids have the world ahead of them, perfect grades, homes, money, but they are all dead inside and lacking direction. Kudos to Jason Tobin for some fine acting! Ben feels increasingly conflicted as he feels stifled by the expectations that others have of him. They gradually expand into more dangerous scams, such as the theft of computer parts from the school and eventually selling drugs. Being female also dramatically reduced my access to the possibility for petty crimes and other risky experimentation.
We think we might have found a good home for people who were fans of these reviews, or for folks who might appreciate some fun film fan conversations. Essentially, female risky behavior amounted to wanton sex with men and occasional petty thievery. I was quite bored halfway into the movie. As he struggles to achieve social success, he discovers his darker side. A very disturbing film-one that does and should arouse discussion.
If the makers intended to go for Godard's existentialism or for Tarantino's explicit content they failed on both accounts. Instead it was hosted on competing video streaming sites which are no longer active, and the series was almost completely lost. The beginning sets a perfect mood, as two Asian-Americans lie in their backyard, basking in a hazing heat, think they hear one of their beepers, and realize that the sound is coming from under the soil, alongside with a body. I could not get over this and it was hard to take this movie seriously with such old looking actors faking it as high school students. In scenes when they were next to Stephanie who really looked like a high school age girl , it was even more apparent. Meanwhile, Ben has fallen for Stephanie. A fight results in Daric pulling out a gun, stopping the fight.
Eventually he is approached by Derrick a born class leader who finally mentions to him, Why are you being a second class benchwarmer on a basketball team?? Daric presents a gun from the three of them to Ben for his birthday. At the same time, Ben develops a crush on his new lab partner, Stephanie Vandergosh, a girl of Asian descent adopted by a white family. The profanity is a virtual sewer. It felt like it was just too much going on during the 90 or so minutes of dialogue. Instead of Lin getting overtly cocky with his plot ideas and characters, he creates a study of them, and of the paths they are each on in their high times of adolescence. During a trip to the Academic Decathlon championships in Las Vegas, Daric hires a prostitute for the guys, with Ben losing his virginity in the process. They do not have to 'represent' their people.
Ben resumes his academic and extracurricular pursuits. The story of a loose cohort of high school high achievers, mostly Asian-American, they are simultaneously self-challenged to make it to the Ivies while at the same time drifting in an affluent bubble of moral emptiness. Not too different a story from many high school buddy films, that part. Like them, this film plunges us into the lifestyle of its characters, and unrelentingly attempts to relate us to them. Just read Less Than Zero and be done with it.
In Lin's , he plays a character named Loo. He's the small kid who ends up a lot like the whipping post, and over compensates his rash bravado and toughness to hide his obvious weaknesses and extreme vulnerability. It was disappointing to see the sole female actress become a pawn in the brokering of power between two high school boys. When you can be your own man? Asian-American or not, Stephanie is a very recognizable teenager. What is your favorite film that none of your friends have seen? The group is stunned when Steve wants them to rob his parents' house. After meeting at the convention in in April 2001, credited as a producer provided the much needed funding to the Justin Lin for this film. He refers to it as a wake-up call.
But due to the events in Better Luck Tomorrow I would justify saying that this is a Prequel to Fast and Furious 3 Tokyo Drift but more so as a background of who Han was and why he's in Tokyo. The ending was too open-ended and a letdown. Each episode was a spoiler free love letter to a piece of cinema. Two hours later, he wired the money we needed into a bank account and saved us. Roger Fan's Better Luck Tomorrow character is called Daric Loo.
Stephanie, who has issues of her own, she refers to her obligatory therapist, knows she's dominated by Steve but resisting submissiveness is very hard. He discovers that her boyfriend, Steve Choe, seems to take her for granted. Brutal, senseless, tragic, hopeless, ugly. Other then that, the movie dragged on and it took me three days of on and off watching to finish it. Wonderful film Rating 9 out of 10. There's a sting to this film that gets to you. Ben is involved in many school clubs, mainly to pad his college application.
