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.
The one where Tyrese eats a lot of sandwiches.

"Ejecto seato, cuz!"
What the hell is 2 Fast 2 Furious? Is it a masterpiece, a one of a kind experience, or just a really shitty movie with some of the worst dialogue ever?
It is all three of those things, actually.
2 Fast 2 Furious is an atrocious movie, but it’s something that managed to entertain the living shit out of me from beginning to end. It’s like a train wreck that consists of a train plowing through a minivan that holds a soccer mom and her three little kids and their little dog too. I can’t even begin to fathom what the outcome of that sort of…
it's Fast and the Furious canon that Brian and Roman were a couple, right?
The best parts of this have kind of a cheap cough syrup vibe that keeps growing on me. Plus, Tyrese.
Part 2 of ONE LAST RIDE
A LOT more fun than the first one, but the IQ level dropped significantly, which is saying a lot because the first film was dumb as bricks. You can see some of the franchise we know today in this film, as it tries to distance itself a little from the racing aspect, even though it's in a few scenes. Also, I thought Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson had much better chemistry than Paul and Vin did in the first one.
But stylistically, the two films couldn't be any different. The first film aimed for more as a hardcore, manly racing movie, whereas this was more or less a spoof of cheesy 80's TV shows…
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…
Number two of seven -- how did they ever get to three?
SCENES WITH VIN DIESEL SMILING: n/a
SCENES WITH SKYDIVING/SPECIAL FORCES SKILLS: 1
WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT IT: The first road race is almost a shot-for-shot ripoff of Speed Racer -- except that Speed Racer came out five years AFTER this. Uh oh, the Siblings got some explaining to do.
First time watch. Enjoyed this way more than expected. Much sillier than the first one and much more 'PG13'. But also more fun, less earnest and crazier car action.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Vin Diesel gets out and Tyrese gets in, but it didn't make a lot of difference.
This movie has 2 memorable scenes: an air overtaking, when a car passes above another jumping over the bridge in the first race and a Cadillac flying over the sea and landing on the villain's boat.
Tromsø filmklubbs sommerkonkurranse #1: En film med et tall i tittelen.
Bedre enn sitt rykte, men er ganske enkel, eller skal man si klassisk crime/action i sin oppbygning. Kunne ha vært en Miami Vice-episode. Spesielt skurken i filmen er en veldig klisjé cartel-slemming fra 80-tallet. Uten at det er spesielt negativt. Tyrese Gibson starter filmen som Dominic Toretto—det er åpenbart at han var i manuset før Vin Diesel ditcha—men Roman utvikler sin egen personlighet før vi er ferdige.
If Tyrese didn't eat so many damn sandwiches, maybe they could have spent some of that money on shooting exciting car chase sequences.
Although the acting is decent, the banter between Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson is witty, and it's well-shot, 2 Fast 2 Furious suffers from thinly written characters and an overuse of hokey CGI effects.
Breezier, funnier and more inconsequential than the original. Sure, it contains an even more gratuitous torture scene than the one in the previous film but besides that, they jettison almost all the drama and instead focus on some pretty good races and the chemistry between Paul Walker and Tyrese. I actually didn't mind the absence of Vin Diesel, which is blasphemy, I know. But Brian and Roman play off each other very well (Tyrese made me laugh a lot, despite the dumb dialogue he often has to spout). Eva Mendes is nice but once again, it's the bromance that gets center stage. Between her, Devon Aoki and the lack of "*sniff sniff* I smell... skanks", the report card for treatment…
Another passable action movie made better by knowing it's part of a franchise that would eventually move into blissful insanity.
Hey, this was actually a lot better than the first one!
There was more action, more cars, and a lot better. Granted, the script isn't the best (I couldn't imagine actually talking like that. I guess that's what it was like in the early 2000's).
This actually wasn't as terrible of a film as I thought it was going to be! Hopefully the other films continue on the path this one took, since it actually was pretty interesting!
