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.

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…
The second instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, 2 Fast 2 Furious continues the journey of Brian O'Conner and further expands the realms of this series by bringing in some new characters who replace the cast of the previous chapter and event though it stays true to its street racing roots, the whole experience is far too inferior to its predecessor.
Following the events of the first film, 2 Fast 2 Furious follows Brian as he now finds himself being chased by the FBI and is eventually caught by the US Customs Service which offers him a clean slate in exchange for his assistance in bringing down a Miami-based drug lord. Agreeing to help, Brian enlists the help…
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.
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…
Another cool thrilling ride with new characters, good cinematography, and teaches us to let go of the past and look to start a new path of our future. 7/10
Bad, but still watchable.
A lot more fun than I remember. Terrible, but terribly fun
There was little to like in this movie. Other than the driving skills, it was the return of Brian O'Connor and the introduction of Tej and Suki that made this bearable. It unfortunately introduced us to Roman Pearce who will grate on your nerves more and more each time he appears in the film and the films to come. This only makes the permanent collection because of the rest of the films.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is my first watch of any F&F flick beyond the original. From what I've read 2 Fast, Breh is considered one of the franchise's low points, if not its nadir. If that's true I'm in for a good time — this was fun. My mom was digging Tyrese Gibson especially but she had to bail at the torture scene (it turns out to be pretty tame though).
The racing action is shot and edited more coherently than it is in the first one. I found both styles to be about equally effective, but this edges out its predecessor by staging some excellent chases on the Floridian freeways. Nothing beats a police pileup. Overall 2F2F feels much more lightweight and…
Didn't have the same impact as the first one . Moved away from standard boy racer and crossed into Hollywood big budget . This was to the films detriment . The story was essentially the same .
The low point of the franchise, tries to look glamorous an flashy with dull uninteresting car chases. Add in a paint by numbers dull story and a weak villian things couldn't get any worse with this weak installment.
"Brian O'Connor: All right, let's see what this thing can do."
Bro i wish i had kept count of how many times paul walker rip called a fellow man bro
Actually a little bit of an improvement over the first film. At least it knows what people want to see: car chases, car crashes, car hijinks, and girls.
Tyrese and Luda are a welcome addition as an injection of personality into the cast of stoic, silent car guys, even if the new characters are just as one-dimensional.
Even with this second entry, it's so apparent that these movies COULD be great with a decent director and script that doesn't sound like it's written by a 13-year-old who's into cars, that I'm a little disappointed it took this long for them to do so.
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
