2 Fast 2 Furious
How Fast Do You Want It?
It's a major double-cross when former police officer Brian O'Conner teams up with his ex-con buddy Roman Pearce to transport a shipment of "dirty" money for shady Miami-based import-export dealer Carter Verone. But the guys are actually working with undercover agent Monica Fuentes to bring Verone down.
I have absolutely no idea where this one stands in the franchise. Is it number two, three? They're all pretty much the same in any case, so does it really matter? This one I'm afraid doesn't give us anything new, and even with hottie Eva Mendes on board, this is as dull as arse.
So Brian is on the run and gets himself hooked up with an old friend and ex-con Tyrese Gibson. Together they're attempting to clear their names by working with Government agencies to bring down a Miami drug-lord. Guess what, the drug-lord is into street racing and is looking for some drivers to help transport his ill-gotten gains. It's again all about the cars and the racing…
I recently decided to give this franchise ago after years of avoiding it. I always figured I'd hate it, but the solid reviews for the 5th and 6th installments convinced me to give it a go.
The first film wasn't great, but I liked it well enough and it wasn't near as bad as I'd feared. Sadly that's not the case for 2 Fast 2 Furious. It's packed to the brim with the shit that kept me from watching the series in the first place. The action gets boring and repetitive very quickly, the acting is terrible, the plot thin, and the dialogue unbearable. Paul Walker actually says "How do ya like them apples", the word "brah" is used enough…
"Come on, man. Guns, murderers and crooked cops? I was made for this, bro."
Yes, the film is borderline retarded, the acting is horrible and the ending is so eye rolling that I can't see straight, but for some reason I was entertained.
I won't try to safe this film in any way or form, is the worst of the franchise hands down, it feels so unreal and the CGI looks horrible!
Now, with all that said and dusted, I was entertained by the bad acting and confusing plot lines. Still, I got introduce to new members of the "team" and there where a couple of nice car chases.
With Paul Walker's "Brian" being the only character from the original crew returning for the sequel, this already had bad news written all over it from the get go. Surprisingly enough, it is the more enjoyable movie.
Former cop Brian is living underground, always running from the cops and making a living winning illegal street races. One day he gets busted and is forced to work with his former associate Roman (Tyrese Gibson), to work undercover as a wheelman for the local gangsterboss played by Cole Hauser.
What the sequel does right is improving on everything that I didn't like about the original. Walker's character is still unappealing, but by turning him into a cocky asshole they actually manage to…
This is much better than first film, basically because this is just Bad Boys 2 lite. In fact, BB2 and 2F2F were even being filmed at the exact same time in Florida. Pretty much every single aspect of this film is better than the first film, except for some of the car stunts. There is never a real wow stunt in 2F2F like there is in the original flick. This is not really that big of a deal though.
Tyrese Gibson's Roman Pearce annoyed me in Furious 6 with his infinite jokes, and for some reason I was pretty sure he was a serious man in this one, so it was a big surprise that his comic relief style was present already in 2F2F, and with better jokes by the way.
And the stunts are way better than my memory recalled.
Note that this is m first experience with the Fast and Furious franchise.
With my not-so positive thoughts on the original Fast and Furious film, and hearing that the franchise only gets worse before it gets better, my expectations for it's first sequel was some of the lowest expectations I've had in any blockbuster, especially when the film title is one of the worst sequel titles I've heard of (Really? 2 Fast 2 Furious? That's almost as dumb as Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel). Bu even with these low expectations, 2 Fast 2 Furious brings the franchise down to a lever of absolute boredom and absurdity that makes me question whether it's worth watching this franchise to begin with.…
Tíos cachitas que caminan balanceándose como si tuvieran ratones en los calzoncillos, que te miran entrecerrando los ojos como si te perdonaran la vida o como si les contara entenderte, vete tu a saber. Tías en bikini que se contonean y que tienen la profundidad y un interés para la trama de la que Michael Bay estaría orgulloso. Coches con luces de neón, música de chunda chunda o hip hop, una trama tonta, tonta.... y aun así, como en la primera, me lo he pasado bien. ¿Tendré un problema?
Stupid. The "story" is so dumb I almost immediately forgot about it. Paul Walker is fun to watch but Tyrese Gibson speaks in nothing but cliches and the only "acting" he does is looking angry. But a couple of moments did keep my interest.
I'll give it half a star for the hot chicks.
I know a lot of people who enjoy "bad films" like The Room. And to an extent I really enjoy them too, but this is my favourite "bad film" of all time.
I watch it everytime I am hungover or feeling sad, and it makes me feel a little bit better.
Everything about this film is awesome.
The reason Vin Diesel didn't come back was because this film would have been too awesome for the world to handle.
Good action movie with cool car chases/action sequences.
'2 Fast' is the first 'Fast' movie minus the thrills, the fun, and sadly, the Vin Diesel.
